Our House by Louise Candlish


My house? Your house? Whose house is it?

Seeing someone moving in is no big deal in this neighborhood, but someone moving into YOUR house IS a big deal.

Fi had no idea that the morning she came back from a business trip there would be a moving van in the driveway and all of her belongings would be gone. 

Where did everything go and what was going on?  Another puzzling fact is that she was not able to get in touch with her husband.

We go back and forth in time and find out the circumstances leading up to the unknown sale.  Bram had a shady past and secrets, but how could this have happened?

The situation was very tense, and hopefully can’t happen.  Having your house sold right under your nose without signing anything or knowing anything about is frightening. 

Both the house situation and what the characters were doing was truly unbelievable and hopefully not something that could be done.

Each chapter leads us to more and more about what was going on with the situation and the characters.  I didn’t find one character that was likable in this book, but that didn’t take away from the excellent story line.

OUR HOUSE is one of the most creative suspense books I have read.

If you like to wonder what makes people do what they do,  and you like to keep guessing at it, OUR HOUSE is a must read this summer.

OUR HOUSE  is bizarre, nerve wracking, and unbelievable, but oh so good.  That last line is WOW!!

Enjoy if you read this book.  5/5

This book was given to me as an ARC by NETGALLEY and the publisher.  All opinions are my own.

  3. Hmm! Not sure all the going back in forth in time really appeals to me however given the context i can see how it would work.

    Give me a shady past and secrets however and I'm all ears.
