I read Jewell's I Found You in 2017, and The Family Upstairs , and I liked this one, too.
from description: You thought they were just staying for the weekend. They looked harmless enough – with only two suitcases and a cat in a wicker box.
But soon things turn very, very dark. It happens slowly, yet so extraordinarily quickly.
Now you and your sister must find a way to survive…
"The baby is back." Twenty-five years ago, the deaths of three adults in a mansion worth millions looked like the suicides of cult members. The only survivor-- a well-cared for baby in a crib. But where are the other four children?
Now, on her 25th birthday, Libby learns she has inherited the mansion in Chelsea and discovers that what she thought she knew about her birth parents is all wrong.
But Libby isn't the only one who has been waiting for this day.
The short opening prologue introduces a mysterious narrator. Chapter I introduces Libby. Chapter 2 introduces Lucy and her children in France. In Chapter III, the mysterious narrator reveals himself as Henry, one of the four missing children. Back and forth from character to character and from present to past and back again, the novel begins to unravel, slowly and skillfully, developing the characters and revealing the sinister events that led to the deaths and the disappearance.
The writing and characters set this book apart from the crowd of similar books.
