Shari Lapena: Not a Happy Family

Book cover and headshot

Broadcaster and storyteller Lucy van Oldenbarneveld sits down with New York Times bestseller Shari Lapena to discuss her new domestic suspense novel, Not a Happy Family.

The Mertons are brutally murdered after a fraught Easter dinner with their three adult kids. Who, of course, are devastated. Or are they? They each stand to inherit millions. They were never a happy family, thanks to their vindictive father and neglectful mother, but perhaps one of the siblings is more disturbed than anyone knew. Did someone snap after that dreadful evening? Or did another person appear later that night with the worst of intentions?

Shari Lapena is the internationally bestselling author of the thrillers The Couple Next Door, A Stranger in the House, An Unwanted Guest, Someone We Know, The End of Her, and Not a Happy Family, which have all been New York Times and The Sunday Times (London) bestsellers. She lives in Toronto.
