Apples Never Fall is a story about an Australian family who was once obsessed with tennis. As the children grew, their parents tennis business flourished but none of the kids ended up being the stars their parents dreamed of. We hear the reasons and are immersed in every moment of love, anxiety and each slight that has brought them to the present time. Now they’re slightly estranged but the appearance of a strange girl who their parents have welcomed into their home brings them all together. We learn about the truth of who the girl is and what her motives are when the mother Joy goes missing.

This was much more of a family drama than a suspense novel, although it was the disappearance of Joy that kept me interested. I was wrong about what I thought happened, I enjoyed the punch of what did although it felt like ice was put on the bruise too soon to have the kind of shock value I wanted. The last 20% seemed hammered on to me. I don’t think it needed a flavor of the pandemic or every single loose end tied up. I would have preferred if it ended when the main mystery was solved. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
