Lillian and Matthew have an amicable divorce due to their young daughter Mabel. There is another reason for their quiet agreement to remain close. It involves a secret that if revealed could cost them everything. They share an apartment and a beautiful family home. However, they are never in the same residence at the same time. Taking turns in each residence in order to continue to provide Mabel a stable home.
One night Lillian has a few drinks with Matthew's girlfriend. She arrives home a bit worse for wear and falls asleep on the couch. When she awakens and approaches her bedroom, she is shocked to discover a dead body on her bed, covered in blood. In a panic, the first call she places is to Matthew. He tells her to hang up and to ring the police.
As the police investigate they are confused as to how close Lillian and Matthew seem, and this is at every turn. Meanwhile, Lillian pursues her own investigation. She knows more than she has shared with the police, and if she does not get to the bottom of as to why the man was killed in her apartment, she and Matthew could lose everything.
What a thrilling, fast-paced story! I could not put this book down! While this multi-layered story began to unfold and as things slowly fell into place, I felt like I was reaching the end of a very enjoyable jigsaw puzzle. However, things just might not wrap up just as nicely for Lillian and Matthew. So, grab this book, shut your phone off, and plan on reading late into the night, because The Family Home is certain to keep you riveted.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
