The Other Family Bets On...

The Other Family

February 2022

THE OTHER FAMILY by Wendy Corsi Staub has secrets cleverly layered in it that will keep readers guessing. The Howells have relocated from California to Brooklyn. While they thought they would end up in a cramped apartment, this family of four, including two teenage daughters, finds itself in a beautiful brownstone with a backyard and a garden.

Quickly they start to assimilate into the neighborhood, meeting a family on the street with children almost the same ages as theirs. While the girls go to school and their dad heads off to work, their mother putters around the house gardening and trying to make it feel like home.

But something odd is going on here. Someone is watching their house. It feels like they have a stalker. At the same time, they learn that there was a triple homicide at this house 25 years ago, which was not disclosed to them when they rented it.

Someone in the family knows more than they are letting on about "the other family." I loved the tension buildup, as well as the resolution. The setup has all the pieces ready to slip into place, but readers will experience a few surprises before they do!
