    Well I'm certainly feeling rather lucky to have great in-laws, especially after this thrilling read! And I wish I could give this more than 5 stars, it's worth a hundred more (at least!).Not only were the characters exceptionally well put together, but the storyline itself with superb. It has the twists, the turns and the emotion that every psychological thriller NEEDS to have to be successful. And Mark Edwards has nailed it on the head. I though...

    I have been a fan of Mark Edwards for a while now and have read all of his books. What has bemused me is why not even more people are reading his books and why they're not being turned into TV dramas or movies. Perhaps people have been waiting for the "right one". Well, the wait is over. "Here to Stay" is a masterpiece and Mark's best book to date. Although "The Magpies" series may be what he is best known for, "Here to Stay" is clearly the natur...

    Mark is a favorite author of mine. I've read all of his books. I HATE reviews that give anything away, or go into much, if any, detail. So all I will say is that this is his best book by far, five stars all the way. A book should make you FEEL something --while you're reading it and after. The array of feelings that this book swirled within me is almost unprecedented, and still going on after the last page. Bravo, Mark!!

    We're the Robinsons--we're survivors. Holy shitzies, fellow readers! WHAT A ROLLER COASTER RIDE!I'm a long-time fan of Mark Edwards, but he truly outdid himself with this gem of a story. I started reading it about 6 hours ago, and I'm already finished. I couldn't put my Kindle down! The characters? All beautifully fleshed out, especially Elliot...as a reader, I could feel his pain, frustration, anger, and despair. In his shoes, I'd feel the exact...

    Another nail-biting, chilling tale of domestic noir from the man that Jennifer Hillier has rightly crowned "The King of domestic horror".Elliot Foster and Gemma Robinson meet one summer afternoon. She saves his life after a near-fatal bee sting and they fall hard and fast, marrying just two months later in Vegas. Elliot couldn't be happier. A few weeks after their wedding Gemma tells Elliot that her parents are moving back to the UK and asks if t...

    I was very lucky to receive an advanced copy of this book to review.Mark Edwards has outdone himself with this book, his best book so far. From the first page to the last you are feeling the emotions and frustrations that Elliot the main character is feeling, especially with his in-laws from hell. At one point in the book I wanted to scream at Elliot to do something. The twists and turns in the book could happen in real life so not far fetched.Th...

    The author does a great job of having you get to know the main character and you learn throughout the pages to sympathize with his situation. I appreciated the twist. It was certainly a twist but a realistic one, which I appreciate. The psychological horror is real and Mark Edwards has done it again!! Overall, a great read.

    I have been a fan of Mark Edward’s books since I read my first one, Follow You Home. He has a way of drawing you in to the point that you can’t put the book down. I’m always amazed how how far I have read when I finally look up from the book. It takes me a minute or two to remember that it’s a story, and not my real world. I will warn you, if you start this book, you need to be sure you can read it all in one sitting as it will haunt you ...

    You know a book is good when it makes you feel ALL the feelings on the emotional spectrum from shock to disbelief to frustrated rage and back. Then you stay up way too late on a work night trying to finish it because it makes your made up word unputdownable seem insufficient for the situation. Elliot meets Gemma during his open garden event. He has the misfortune of discovering that he's allergic to bees in front of her, but she races to save his...

He is happy in a career which has led to him running a successful business teaching science to underprivileged children, and content to come home to just his cat Charlie in the house that he worked hard to lovingly restore. Then along comes Gemma who visits Elliot's house on an open garden's weekend, and the two fall head over heels in love with each other and marry within two months. Gemma's parents, Jeff and L...

    Mark Edwards has produced yet another gem in the psychological thriller genre with 'Here To Stay'. A tale of London based scientist orphan, Elliot Foster, who has always been a little too consumed by his work to find the right person to settle down with, despite owning what is potentially the perfect family home. That all changes when he meets beautiful Gemma Robinson though and after falling madly for this woman, he finds himself married and see...

    Wow. Where to begin. To start, I am a big Mark Edwards fan. Previously, my favorite book of his had been Follow You Home. I can now say this book has taken its place. From start to end- utterly gripping. I love a book that appeals to all emotions, and this is one of them. I couldn’t help but to feel anger towards the antagonists ( Lizzy and Jeff) and put myself in Elliot’s shoes. I also found myself liking Elliot and even Gemma despite her ro...

    I didn't even look at any of the other Kindle First picks for this month, as soon as I saw Mark Edwards name I was in! This is the fifth book of his I've read and I've yet to be disappointed.I love how Edwards' books are always about ordinary people who find themselves in situations where eventually they just go "How did it come to this?" In this case it was how Elliot got the in-laws from hell. He jumps into marriage after a life altering event ...

    The last time I read a book in one sitting was back in high school. My favorite author, Mark Edwards has outdone himself with this book. His best one yet. The story, the character development and the twists and turns are incredible. You feel every emotion that the main character, Elliot experiences - joy, concern, frustration, sadness, contempt, guilt, rage, defeat and finally, acceptance. His beloved happy home is turned into chaos when his new ...

    I've read books that claimed they would be a rollercoaster ride of emotions, but none of them have truly delivered that until Here to Stay.There were times my heart rate would rise (verified by my Fitbit!) from the anxiety the characters caused. There were times I wanted to throw my Kindle across the room from anger. There were times I was confused and wasn't even sure what to feel!I won't recap the description of the story since it is already ou...

    If you aren’t a Mark Edwards fan, then you haven’t read any of his books. His latest lives up to his other works and he continues to truly surprise his readers. “Here to Stay” gave me everything I could hope for - a connection to the protagonist, a ton of suspense, and (YES!!!) an unexpected journey with lots of twists. This book was like reading my worst nightmare - how do you deal with family that overstays their welcome?? The situation...

    Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow! I knew what to expect having read many of Mark Edwards books before and I was in no way disappointed.I was completely hooked right away and finished in record time. The story is so beautifully and creepily done and it keeps you guessing until the end. It made me angry at times, creeped me out, made me uneasy and I'm pretty sure I even cheered at one point. The characters are so well written and Mark tends to have the abil...

    Wow, I didn't think Mark Edwards could write a book that would make me think about bumping The Magpies out of my favorite book spot, but I think he's done it with Here To Stay! This book takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions while reading it...happy, sad, maddening, frustrated, and downright angry. My heart was racing, and it even felt like I was having heart palpitations a few times, and I definitely wanted to throat punch these fictiona...

    I have loved all of Mark Edwards books and just as I think he can’t get any better he comes up with Here to Stay and has excelled himself. It was difficult to pick my favourite book by him but I think this one has the edge.I picked it up and didn’t want to put it down. I was on the edge of my seat shouting at my kindle. It was gripping and fast paced and I don’t know what more I can say I was left speechless (that doesn’t happen often)Ell...
