About the Book:
Gemma Robinson comes into Elliot’s life like a whirlwind, and they marry and settle into his home. When she asks him if her parents can come to stay for a couple of weeks, he is keen to oblige – he just doesn’t quite know what he’s signing up for. The Robinsons arrive with Gemma’s sister, Chloe, a mysterious young woman who refuses to speak or leave her room. Elliot starts to suspect that the Robinsons are hiding a dark secret. And then there are the scars on his wife’s body that she won’t talk about. As Elliot’s in-laws become more comfortable in his home, encroaching on all aspects of his life, it becomes clear that they have no intention of moving out. To protect Gemma, and their marriage, Elliot delves into the Robinsons’ past. But is he prepared for the truth?
A mystery with unrelenting suspense, Here To Stay will grab your heart and never let go. This was one crazy ride - super twists and turns. Wasn't sure if I was coming or going. Totally captivating and kept me guessing. Great story with well developed characters & real emotion. You could feel what they were feeling & experience the confusion and self doubt the characters felt. I loved the building suspense toward the final reveal. Wasn't totally sure about who was doing what or why and was surprised by the ending.
I enjoyed reading Here To Stay, I found it to be very suspenseful. The characters seemed real, that's what I liked best about the book, it was powerful, yet personal. The story line was compelling and kept me wondering what was really happening, I had a hard time putting this book down. This grabbed my attention from the very beginning and I never lost interest. The characters all had interesting personalities and I never came close to guessing the ending. Mark Edwards never disappoints.
