Ther Perfect Family by Robyn Harding

The Adler family appears to have it all. A perfect family living in a beautiful home in a great neighborhood.  Thomas is a successful real estate agent and his wife Viv has a successful business staging homes for sale by decorating.  Their son Eli appears to be on the right track - he is an athletic soccer goalie at a prestigious college.  Tarryn is a surly teenager. 

All four of them have a secrets which I can't reveal without spoilers.  This is important to know because their home is the target of nightly attacks such as egg throwing, feces smeared on  a porch hand rail, tires slashed and more. Who is behind this escalating vandalism and why would their family be targeted?

Thomas, Viv, Eli and Tarryn begin to wonder if the attacks are a result of their secrets and the situations they are dealing with.  I can say  Thomas is being blackmailed and Eli was warned off by his soccer mates about a repulsive incident at college. That's not a spoiler.

I was quite surprised by one of the culprits and found this to be an enjoyable quick read. This is my first experinence with the author Robyn Harding and I think I will keep her on my radar for her previous books.

Publication date August 10, 2021 by Gallery Books.  Genre: Mystery, Thrillers.
