Summary:

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

“A quintessential ‘beach read,’ I half expected sand to fall out of it. This one brings lurid family mayhem to the Hudson Valley [and] plausible suspects. With her cascading short chapters and teasers by the dozen, you stick with Lapena eagerly.” —Washington Post

“Lapena is a master of manipulation. With her latest page-turning thriller, Not a Happy Family, she is once again at the top of her game.” —USA Today


“In this fast-paced, twisted family saga, Shari Lapena keeps you guessing until the very last page...” —Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on The Train

The new domestic suspense novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door and The End of Her who has sold more than 7 million copies of her books worldwide

In this family, everyone is keeping secrets—even the dead.
 
Brecken Hill in upstate New York is an expensive place to live. You have to be rich to have a house there, and Fred and Sheila Merton certainly are rich. But even all their money can't protect them when a killer comes to call. The Mertons are brutally murdered after a fraught Easter dinner with their three adult kids. Who, of course, are devastated.
 
Or are they? They each stand to inherit millions. They were never a happy family, thanks to their vindictive father and neglectful mother, but perhaps one of the siblings is more disturbed than anyone knew. Did someone snap after that dreadful evening? Or did another person appear later that night with the worst of intentions? That must be what happened. After all, if one of the family were capable of something as gruesome as this, you'd know.
 
Wouldn't you?

    Narrator is a bit monotone but liked the book a lot. Ending is a bit abrupt but all around I'm glad I listened in.

  • Anonymous

    Formulaic, simple writing, wooden characters, and predictable outcome. Enjoyable story nonetheless but not worth my $15.

  • Karen H.

    Great read! Lots of twists and turns that kept you guessing.
