We become reacquainted with the Lamb family, Lucy, with her two children, Marco and Stella, her brother, Henry, and Libby, haunted by the trauma of their past. Lucy is living with her brother, and seeking safety, stability and security after experiencing a challenging set of circumstances and periods of homelessness. I’ve been craving to read the sequel to THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS ever since I finished it, and Lisa Jewell hasn’t let me or her millions of fans down. We also see how deep the relationship is between Lucy and Henry, how they work within their damaged psyches to be there for one another. There are many characters, but Google helped refresh my memory regarding the plot/spoilers in the first book (that I read a few years ago).

This is slated as a standalone sequel, but if I hadn’t read The Family Upstairs before this, I’m not sure I would have been as invested in the plot or its characters. Lucy had plans of finding a home of her own somewhere close to Libby that she, Marco and Stella could live in. When Owusu sends the evidence for examination, he learns the bones are connected to a cold case that left three people dead on the kitchen floor in a Chelsea mansion thirty years ago. Twenty-six years is long enough to doubt your recollection of things, to wonder if maybe things really did happen the way you think they happened” (69).Even though the author does a great job of recapping the events of Cheyne Walk, to really understand the characters, especially Henry, you need the full background. Although you can piece together the story without reading book one ( The Family Upstairs), it is a better experience if you know (and remember) what happened in that book. A: The original motivation for bringing Rachel’s storyline into the sequel was to see how she felt about the death of her husband. I also liked how we got to see more of Henry’s true personality, and discover how obsessive he really is.

I didn’t decide until halfway through to send Lucy after him, but realized their stories needed to align more closely as the book developed. I can't explain how excited I was when I found out that there was going to be a sequel to 'The Family Upstairs'! You committed a serious crime and you're just in the streets because some small town Detective wants to keep an eye on you? The whole impetus for the sequel was to show him finding Phin who was very much in Botswana at the end of the first book.It was almost impossible for me to remember the characters from The Family Upstairs and to also remember all of the crazy, immoral things that went on. Now, it's just the police trying to piece together the last parts, but even that wasn't too surprising. After fleeing London thirty years ago in the wake of a horrific tragedy, Lucy Lamb is finally coming home. And Phin goes back to Botswana, but now has a close relationship with his daughter, Libby and his mother and sister down in Cornwall. I also found myself getting a little emotional near the end, I really liked how Jewell wrapped this up, although it may not be to everyone’s tastes.

Q: After Henry is caught by the police and then let go, he thinks to himself, “Chicago has healed me .
