批評家のレビュー

“Filled with suspense, intrigue and a cast of engaging characters, I devoured The Happy Family in two sittings. Fabulous!” (Lucy Clarke, author of The Castaways)

“This has all the ingredients of a classic psychological suspense – suspicion, secrets and shocking reveals. Another great read from Jackie Kabler!” (Sarah Linley, author of The Trip)

"Couldn't turn the pages fast enough! I don't often stay up all night reading, but Jackie did it to me again. Twisty with a killer finish!" (Tess Stimson, author of Stolen)

あらすじ・解説

The brand-new thriller from the best-selling author!

A mother who disappeared.... 
When Beth was 10 years old, her beautiful, wild mother Alice disappeared. Beth’s life since hasn’t always been easy, but now she’s settled, with a successful career, a loving family and a beautiful home. 

An unexpected visitor....
Then one day there’s a knock at the door. Alice has returned. Desperate to rebuild their relationship, Beth invites her mother to move in.

A life that comes crashing down....
At first, everything is wonderful. But then Beth’s friends start to drift away, strange things happen at home, and rumours about Beth begin to circle. Someone is out to destroy Beth’s newfound happiness. But who? And how far will they go?

Perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty, C. L. Taylor and Lisa Jewell

Predictable and poorly executed.

Honestly, I don’t know which book the previous reviewers were listening to, but this is terrible.

The story is a mystery by numbers and the plot is so completely obvious. I stuck with it because I thought ‘no, it can’t be as obvious as that’ but it was. It is entirely predictable and fairly dull too.

The one saving grace of this book is the narrator, who battles through valiantly despite the nonsense they are expected to vocalise.

Brilliant Story

This book was so intriguing from the very beginning.
I did however work it out almost straight away but it didn't spoil it at all as there were other possibilities and I could have been wrong .
I am happy I purchased this book and enjoyed it very much .

Just a fabulous story.

Just completed the 10+ hours of The Happy Family. Great writing by Jackie Kabler with lots of twists and turns. Helen Keeley is the excellent narrator for Audible.

Excellent value for money.

Ridiculous plot with hilarious Scooby-Doo ending. 😂

Far fetched doesn't come close to describing this book.

when the end chapter came with the bad guy just volunteering information on how they nearly got away with their crime too, if it hadn't been for those pesky kids, it became just laughable.

Most obvious book ever

Honestly the most obvious book I have ever come across. From very early on it was all so clear what was happening.

Might be good as a 30min movie. Not longer.

If you like a story built on 95% paranoia and a feeling that everything around you is crumbling down under your feet then this is a book for you. Amazing narration though!

Happy family

I absolutely loved this book. I doubted the mother from the off but still bought into her. The story deals with the monstrous things a teenager can do and the repercussions the acts can bring. I related to the victim and understood that she didn't realise she was drinking so much. The narrator was truly excellent and I am going to look for other books she has read. I highly recommend this book.

Held to the end .... clever writing by a clever author

I loved this - held me to the end, as Jackie’s titles always do , very different to the Cora Baxter series but equally as brilliantly written- I can’t wait for her next book.
