The Blurb

“Mark Edwards always delivers! Taut, gripping, scary and original – a fabulous read!” – Robert Bryndza, #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author

A beautiful home. A loving wife. And in-laws to die for.

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?

From the two million copy bestselling author comes a tale about the chilling consequences of welcoming strangers into your home.

What Did I Think?

Beware the Robinsons….they are the in laws from hell!! I have checked my friendship and acquaintance circles and I don’t think I know any Robinsons… (apologies if I’ve missed anyone)….

The Robinsons were a weird family. Gemma seems the most normal of the foursome. Jeff and Lizzy, the parents were the weirdest of them all. They were so secretive about everything and the most snide people I’ve experienced this year. You’d have thought that they would be eternally grateful to the man who’s opened up his home and welcomed perfect strangers into his home. But no….as you’d expect from Mark Edwards, this family proceed to turn Elliot’s life upside down.

And then there is the sister Chloe – I questioned throughout was she really ill?? 

I can’t not mention #poorpoorCharlie !!! Oh bejeezus that poor cat!!! What a contentious issue….I feared for Charlie’s safety!!!!! Lizzy’s attitude to Elliot’s pet was awful

Mark Edwards is on form with Here To Stay. I finished the book feeling stunned and seriously unnerved (though I felt unnerved for most of the book). This is another excellent psychological thriller from Mr Edwards that I loved from beginning to end!!
