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.
Elliot lives in a lovely renovated house in an idyllic village. Whilst overall he is happy, he is missing having someone to share his life with. Meeting and falling in love with Gemma though, doesn’t pre pare him for his in-laws.
Gemma’s parents really are the in-laws from hell. On meeting them I knew I wasn’t going to like them and I felt sorry for Elliot for having to put up with them as I couldn’t imagine putting up with them for a couple of days never mind a couple of weeks! Things go from bad to worse and tensions in the household are fraught to say the least. Not only are they all not getting on, there is something about this family that doesn’t sit right and I was eager to know what secrets they were hiding.
It’s hard to say too much more about the story as wouldn’t want to give too much away. Elliot’s life though gets turned upside down and he realises just how little he knows about his new wife and her family. It had me constantly second guessing everything and I couldn’t have been more wrong!
Here To Stay will certainly put you off ever inviting your in-laws to stay! Elliot has way more patience than I could ever have in this story. It seemed like every page there was something weird or strange going on that had me thinking all sorts as well casting even more suspicion on Gemma’s parents. If it wasn’t for normal life I would have devoured this book in one sitting as it was so engrossing. The conclusion blew my mind! A highly addictive page turner!
