Harriet has a bestselling thriller and is newly engaged to Edward, heir to a huge family fortune. While Harriet has some secrets lurking in her past, she has no idea how many secrets simmer just under the surface of Edward’s outwardly gentile family. But then his intimidating and powerful father, Robert, invites Harriet to play The Family Game—and nothing is ever the same again.
“I know I can handle myself—better than most. I have been through too much to doubt that fact. I know I can do what I need to do when my back is to the wall.”
While it takes a while to become a pulse-pounding cat-and-mouse thriller, fully 40% of the book feels like women’s fiction or a romance, it is definitely worth the wait. Once the game begins, it is a perfectly enthralling, compelling, and fast-paced read. I couldn’t stop reading! The Family Game is highly recommended for thriller readers looking for a family-centric plot. 5 stars and a favorite!
