In Somebody’s Home, Julie Jones has finally left her suffocating marriage with big plans to start over with her teen daughter, Jess. In Julie’s mind, their lovely new home in the quiet neighborhood of Oceanside is the first step toward a promising new beginning. However, the previous owners, a pastor and his wife, have left someone behind: Tom Dean. The house was the only home Tom Dean has ever known—and he never plans to leave it. His intensity is fueled by a bitter hatred for his father, the pastor, who considers him a lost cause—and now, also for the woman and her daughter who have moved into their family’s house. But Tom has the perfect plan. Will Julie’s fresh start turn into a nightmare? And who will get exactly what they deserve?
