High Occupancy by Linda R Ward


High Occupancy by Linda R Ward

After years of vacation-less hard work, the Tams', an idyllic blended family enjoying the home of their dreams, find life is interrupted by a home invasion. The setting is in the lovely home of this middle-class family, in Columbia MD, who suffers the ravages and drama of this intrusion. Elisa Tams, forty-ish mother of two teenagers is a bored housewife. Her husband Jake is an experienced, well thought of veteran police detective. He loves his home and was very happy to meet and marry Elisa, his second wife. He brought to their marriage his former father-in-law, Mac and little son Jeremy. Elisa and Jake have a daughter, Janelle, in common. This family nucleus must deal with the highly charged emotional trauma of a home invasion on more than one level. The events of that night fill them with the height of fear and revelation, disturbing not only the peace, but health and happiness. --High Occupancy includes a Readers Guide--
