I really enjoyed “The Family Upstairs” and gave it a 5-star rating, which is a rarity for me. Given its success both creatively and commercially, it was likely that at some point there would be a temptation to produce a sequel. History has shown that making a sequel to what was originally intended to be a stand-alone novel isn’t always a good idea, so I was hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. The result was actually something in between.

First, I’d like to address whether “The Family Remains” could also be read by someone who doesn’t know the first volume yet. Well, Lisa Jewell shows consideration for her readers by providing some brief background on the key characters at the beginning of the book. She also uses one of the first chapters (written from Henry’s perspective) to provide background information on the first book. That said, I think this works better as a refresher for people who actually read the first book than to allow completely new readers to get up to speed.

The novel itself offers much of what one would expect from Lisa Jewell: the writing style is fluid, engaging, and draws the reader in with the author’s usual page-turning style. The characterization is impressive as always, as the main actors are well drawn, if not always sympathetic. The pacing is good throughout and the plot has been carefully constructed with no obvious plot holes or stretching credulity too far beyond the acceptable limits of dramatic fiction. And yet, something is missing compared to “The Family Upstairs”… It doesn’t have the same sense of originality, intrigue or menace, and therefore less impactful than its predecessor.

If you enjoyed The Family Upstairs, I hope you will too, but probably not as much. If you didn’t enjoy “The Family Upstairs” then I highly doubt you will. And if you haven’t read The Family Upstairs, I suggest you do before you read this, as I don’t think you’ll get the full satisfaction out of The Family Remains otherwise.
