On a bright January morning in the London suburbs, a family moves into the house they’ve just bought in Trinity Avenue. Nothing strange about that. Except it is your house. And you didn’t sell it.
When Fiona Lawson comes home to find strangers moving into her house, she's sure there's been a mistake. She and her estranged husband, Bram, have a modern co-parenting arrangement: bird's nest custody, where each parent spends a few nights a week with their two sons at the prized family home to maintain stability for their children. But the system built to protect their family ends up putting them in terrible jeopardy. In a domino effect of crimes and misdemeanors, the nest comes tumbling down.
Now Bram has disappeared and so have Fiona's children. As events spiral well beyond her control, Fiona will discover just how many lies her husband was weaving and how little they truly knew each other. But Bram's not the only one with things to hide, and some secrets are best kept to oneself, safe as houses.
I liked this book. The beginning set up the story really nicely. Just think, you come home to find movers in your driveway with a new couple that has moved in that is not you. Your homeless and your ex has gone missing. This is what happens to Fiona. Her ex, Bram has gone missing and sold the house.
I would classify this book as a psychological thriller but not one that is bold with in your face moments that leave you gasping or on the edge of your seat. This book is more of a quiet, drawn out thriller. Bram is the one that readers hate. He left Fiona and seems to be living the high life. Although, as the story plays out there is more than meets the eye. The ending is fine. I didn't hate it. Since this book is more slow and quieter in the delivery; I want to feel a strong bond to the characters. In this case, it didn't happen. I was indifferent if you will about Fiona and Bram. However, the author did weave a nice story with this book. I am interested to see what the author comes out with next.
