I love Mark Edwards books! He has become known to me as an author that is going to hook you in the beginning and not let you go until the very last twist. Thank you Net Galley, Mark Edwards and publisher for letting me read this ARC of The House Guest.
This book just did not feel like a typical Mark Edwards book. It was very lightweight, not much happened in the first half of the book and it make it a little hard for me to keep going.
In fiction you have to suspend your beliefs and let things happen but letting a stranger into the house when they were house sitting was a major red flag for me.
I really wanted to like this book as I love Mark Edwards work but it just was not for me. I look forward to and will still read what comes next in his journey as an author. He is still a favorite!
