About the Book:
Thomas and Viv Adler are the envy of their neighbors: attractive, successful, with well-mannered children and a beautifully restored home. Until one morning, when they wake up to find their porch has been pelted with eggs. It’s a prank, Thomas insists; the work of a few out-of-control kids. But when a smoke bomb is tossed on their front lawn, and their car’s tires are punctured, the family begins to worry. Surveillance cameras show nothing but grainy images of shadowy figures in hoodies. And the police dismiss the attacks, insisting they’re just the work of bored teenagers. Unable to identify the perpetrators, the Adlers are helpless as the assaults escalate into violence, and worse. And each new violation brings with it a growing fear. Because everyone in the Adler family is keeping a secret—not just from the outside world, but from each other. And secrets can be very dangerous.

My Review:
Which of the Adlers was responsible for the harassment? 

This is my second book by Robyn Harding, I loved The Arrangement and this is an excellent read as well. I am so happy to be able to say that she is becoming a favourite and I love touting Canadian authors. 

Told by four different points of view of the Adler family, we have Thomas and Viv the parents and their two children Eli and Tarryn. All four members are hiding a big secret which could be the cause of the escalating harassment/vandalism to their home and family. I am not going to give anything away because it is so much fun getting there without knowing too much. 

 This was a really good book and it would have gotten the coveted five stars from me BUT I found a few bits to be a little repetitive and the epilogue was a cliffhanger...maybe there is a sequel in the works? The book was certainly a page turner and I do recommend it. I look forward to reading more from this talented author, she has a great imagination.

Thank you NetGalley, Robyn Harding and Gallery Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
