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….
This twisty, addictively page-turning suspense novel about a perfect family’s perfect façade will keep you turning pages until its explosive ending.
This is the perfect title for this perfect book about this perfect family! Ok the only true part of that statement was the perfect title/perfect book part! Wow…what a crazy thrilling book ride! Readers will love how Robyn Harding managed to create what seems like a “perfect” family but is actually the exact opposite!
For outsiders looking in, the Adler’s have it all…mom, dad, brother and sister all living in a perfect house. Parents are successful, kids are smart (one in HS the other in college). All seems just… perfect.
Ok… record scratch sound indicating the “NOT” part! Rewind…
Let’s start over…
Dad is caught red handed doing something shady. Mom does something shady but hasn’t been caught. Son witnessed something shady but keeps mouth shut. Daughter participates in something shady but stays anonymous. Sounds perfect right? Insert sarcastic eye roll 🙄
The problem is when shady things start happening to them in their own home, they all blame one another for why it’s happening. I mean… someone could be after them for any number of reasons. As they each evaluate their own possible role in all of it, the bigger the mess they all seem to be.
As the Adler’s world slowly implodes, secrets begin surfacing. You will be shocked at how many plot twists will keep you turning pages furiously. The end is fabulous! I loved everything about this chaotic story! 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
