The book synopsis for The Family Home by Miranda Smith

Book cover The Family Home by Miranda Smith

There’s a dead man in my home. Only me and my ex have a key. But neither of us would have done this. We would never risk our daughter’s safety...

At my daughter Mabel’s sixth birthday party, there’s a cake with candles, sausages on the barbecue, and the sound of laughter as we open presents. But at the end of the day, I hug my daughter tightly, drop a kiss into her shiny brown hair… and leave her with my ex-husband, who won’t even meet my eyes.

After our divorce, 
Matthew and I wanted to do the best thing for Mabel. We agreed to share the family home, despite living separate lives. Now one of us stays with her, and one of us stays at the apartment across town.

The night of the party, I fall asleep on the sofa, tired and sad. I wake up in the dark, stumble into my bedroom, and turn on the lights. And then I scream.

There’s a body in my bed. A man I dated. In an apartment where only Matthew and I have the key.

Would Matthew go this far to be rid of me? I thought I could trust him… but now I can’t be sure.

Or has someone learned the terrible secret that both tore us apart, and tied us together forever? And how can I save my daughter, when the truth might destroy us all?
