Synopsis: Two women. Two families. Two lifetimes' worth of secrets.
In the wake of her husband’s sudden death, Cassie Costas finds her relationship with her teenage stepdaughter unraveling. After their move to historic Tarpon Springs, Florida, Savannah hates her new town, her school and most of all her stepmom, whom she blames for her father’s death. Cassie has enough to contend with as she searches for answers about the man she shared a life with, including why all their savings have disappeared.
When Savannah’s rebellion culminates in an act that leaves single mother Amber Blair and her sixteen-year-old son homeless, Cassie empathizes with the woman’s predicament and invites the strangers to move in. As their lives intertwine, Cassie realizes that Amber is hiding something. She’s evasive about her past, but the fear in her eyes tells a darker story. Cassie wonders what the woman living under her roof is running from…and what will happen if it finally catches up to her. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: This hooked me very quickly and I enjoyed the journey it took me on. It was the perfect summer book of secrets to sink my teeth into. It was a story that kept my attention the whole way through. I wanted to know just what was going on and I did care about the mothers and children I was reading about.
This book had just the right amount of intrigue, but it was also a very human story. There were definitely secrets that were being kept.
I really enjoyed the writing style and the way the story progressed. Emilie Richards did a good job. I'd definitely read more of her books.
I'd definitely say give The House Guests by Emilie Richards a read. It's a good story and I don't think you'd be disappointed.
