Ahh this is a clever little tale that didn’t go in the direction I thought it would.
Lead character Ellie is a girl after my own heart – hats off to her.
Once I got over my abject house envy I found myself somewhat incredulous that anyone could be so polite as to accept a complete stranger into the home for an indeterminate amount of time. Maybe that’s just me?
Poor Brandon, my heart really went out to him – sometimes life is just plain cruel.
Seth – no love for him throughout – get over yourself mister!
This psychological thriller will definitely keep you on your toes while you try to wrap your head around what it going on, and why! Don’t bother trying to work it out, just go with the flow and enjoy the ride!

Book Blurb: She told him to make himself at home. He did.
Life has been good to Ellie – she owns a successful art gallery, is deeply in love with her husband, Seth, and has two beautiful children, Brandon and Simone.
But not everything is perfect…
Lately, Seth seems to have something on his mind and has become cold and distant. And things don’t improve when he invites mysterious stranger Ace to stay in their home.
Ace is charming, but Ellie can’t help feeling there’s more to him than meets the eye, that he has some kind of agenda. She’s also aware that she is dangerously attracted to him.
Then a girl at Brandon’s school is murdered, and Ellie is beyond devastated when the police tell her they think her son might be involved.
Ellie knows in her heart that Brandon is innocent and she feels certain that Ace is somehow connected to the disturbing things that are happening. She starts to dig for the truth and uncovers the terrible secret that will change her life in ways she can’t imagine…
