Synopsis: A house with the darkest of secrets. A woman who is the only one who knows.
It’s another bright, sunny day in Venture, Illinois, the sort of place where dreams come true and families can get a fresh start. Cecelia Holmes deserves it after the home invasion that shattered her previous life. Now everything seems perfect – her high-security smart home, her doting husband, her sweet daughter.
Until she begins to feel spied on. Her husband doesn’t believe her. Her neighbors ignore her. So when she discovers a shocking secret about the prior occupant of their house, she feels that she has no one to turn to. And now Cecelia must face her fears alone…
Reading this book sorta reminded me of the Disney movie “Smart House.” This book reminded me of why I don’t want a smart house though a few smart electronics are cool to have in your house.
I could relate to the main character Cecelia in the aspect of being stalked and followed. The last four years of living up north in Missouri I was stalked by family members. The ending of this book was a huge shock for me.
If you love mysteries then this is the book for you. I recommend this book for mature readers only. If you have ever been stalked, followed, violated, or harassed in any way than this is a trigger warning for you.
