I am never disappointed with a Mark Edwards book and I tend to go through them super quick which is another bonus. He’s a talented writer who likes to put his very normal characters into very unusual and challenging situations and I love what he does! This is by far my favorite book that I have read from him so far. I am a book junkie and this author has made my fix list. Adam and Ruth are house sitting for Mona and Jack who they met while on a cruise. Jack and Mona are going on to New Mexico. One stormy night Adam answers a knock on the door and finds a young woman, Eden, standing at the threshold soaking wet. Eden explains that she is a friend of Jack and Mona and she was expecting to stay a few days in their home… the home owners gave her an open invitation. Adam allows her to stay since she is the home owner’s friend and the three young people become fast friends. But everything is not as it seems. Adam and Ruth are a happy couple and Ruth is an up and coming star. What about Eden who is she what does she want? Need? there is also an old grey-bearded man who seems to be watching the house… who is he and what does he want. There are examples where I feel like Eden is a Mess and I was so right! Ruth ends up going missing and Adam works with the bearded man to find her and the story unfolds. There are so many layers to this story that I couldn’t put it down. Although this review is short there is so many layers to it.
