Book Notices | Here to Stay by Mark Edwards

Mark Edwards, Here to Stay

  Amazon  

Elliot gets married to Gemma after a whirlwind courtship, but when his inlaws come to visit, things go south fast. They're possibly the most annoying people on the planet, and they seem to have no intention of leaving. They're also malevolent. You'd think that malevolence would make for a good read, but this book was just plodding for me. It turns out that reading about annoying people is pretty annoying itself. Here to Stay was just interesting enough to keep me reading, but not so interesting that I ever came back to it with any pleasure. By the time things got a little exciting in the story—at the very end—it was too little, too late.
