A domestic noir novel that will pull you into the suspense and shock you with every last twist Wow I am beyond impressed with the new novel Our House by Louise Candlish By 30% through this book I couldn t have put it down if I tried I first was introduced to Candlish in her previous book The Sudden Departure of the Frasers I loved that book but this one shows a level of growth as a writer that has me positively glowing after reading it This one took ahold of my life and didn t release me When I finally finished it I couldn t get over the ending for hours I was shocked and excited and I m even excited to share this with readers who will get to experience those twists for the first timeAbout the BookFi and Bram have the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood It s the sort of neighborhood where outsiders clamor to get in and insiders are desperate to stay in The sort of neighborhood where all of the residents know how lucky they are to live there And each time someone moves out they are aware that none of them are truly entitled to that perfect life They are all just barely able to afford it and one wrong move could send it all tumbling downAnd for Bram and Fi that wrong move comes from a marital indiscretion Determined not to lose their dream home even if she lost her dream husband Fi and Bram set up a birds nest arrangement the kids stay in the home and Fi and Bram take turns living with them as the custodial parent It s the perfect arrangement the boys get a stable environment and Fi and Bram get to keep their perfect just out of reach homeAnd then one day Fi arrives home to see another family moving into her house Frantic and assuming it is a mistake Fi finds the nightmare only gets worse The family claims they purchased the home from her and Bram When Fi tries to reach Bram his phone is disconnected Even worse the boys never arrived at school As the details unfold Fi realizes that she has become the victim of a crime most can only imagine and the only way to hope to find justice means she ll tell her story to the worldReflectionI loved the story telling mechanisms that Candlish uses in this book to keep the pace moving and the story fresh The book begins the day Fi arrives home to see another family moving into her house Then the book actually moves forward in time but also into the past Several weeks after Fi discovers the new family in her house she is on a podcast called Victim In the podcast Fi recounts her story from the beginning all the way back when Bram first moved out Fi hopes to bring awareness to this sort of real estate fraud and prevent others from falling victim to the crime she fell victim toAnd then we have Bram s story written in the form of a letter to an unknown recipient at the same time Fi is on the podcast They tell the story of their marital break up and the crime itself in perfect pace with one another In a style that I ve come to realize is classically Candlish the story from each person keeps up with the other and a revelation in one person s story is then picked up in the other s In this way the plot moves steadily and little tidbits of information come to light with spin from each party And you get the distinct impression neither is telling the full truth The only thing better than one unreliable narrator is two unreliable narrators amiriteThis book is truly a slow burning domestic noir masterpiece I read this one over only a few days and when I reached the last page I couldn t even sit still because my mind was buzzing from the final scene Candlish has a way of dropping hints that the reader completely overlooks But as each twist is revealed the hints add up and make you realize you probably should have been able to tell what was going on the whole time That is how you begin to empathize with the characters When the same things that fooled them fool you as wellCandlish is truly a master of crafting a carefully constructed plot that showcases how easy it is to be tricked into your worst nightmare I am still buzzing from the final reveal days later I can t wait for readers to begin this one and experience all of the twists themselvesMany thanks to Berkley for sending me an advanced reader copy of this novel to review I loved it

Summary ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Louise Candlish

On a bright January morning in the London suburbs a family moves into the house they’ve just bought in Trinity AvenueNothing strange about that Except it is your house And you didn’t sell itFor better for worseWhen Fi arrives home to find a removals van outside he. Oh my God it s been a long time since I ve suffered through a book that made me want to just BE DONE WITH IT ALREADY But this book Our House by Louise Candlish just seemed to just go on and ON Seriously there was NO reason for this book to be 400 pages There were way too many asides throughout this novel which slowed the pace greatly and contributed to the superfluous word count Not to mention those peanut gallery comments from the viewers of the crime podcast that Fiona Lawson is telling her story to which allows for the author Louise Candlish to tell Fiona s story under the guise of recounting her story to these podcast listeners really burnt my biscuit They were so annoying ridiculous and distracting that I trained myself to skip them entirely whenever I encountered them Though it is a genre I tend to enjoy for the most part see my reviews of Ruth Ware and Fiona Barton this novel was everything that I hate in British cozy thrillers centered around a meek woman who s gullible and made a victim as she tries to take back the power in the end It also was not very well written uite honestly Candlish has obviously never heard of Hemingway s Iceberg Theory because for this being a thriller she certainly didn t trust her reader to come to any conclusions on their own which really took all of the bite and fun out of reading this book for me I recently joined a Twitter discussion where a very outspoken literary agent was asserting that reviewers should NEVER tag an author with a bad review because it s rude and because these authors have already had countless people critiuing them and professional editors editing them This by the way was rather self righteously stated as though literary agents and editors know best and as though their stamp of approval a good book makes As a writer former lit agent and former publishing intern and current book reviewer I can confidently assert in response that this is not necessarily the caseHere you ll find a fantastic example of a book that needs further editing Literally my mind started wandering by page 60 as I started calculating how many paragraphs of text I d just written that really could have been removed from my life altogetherAll in all the premise of Louise Candlish s Our House is phenomenal the execution is mediocre if not terrible in parts and the aside bits nearly drove me mad If you re looking for a streamlined heart pounding thrill of a ride don t waste your time with this one I really don t have much else to say about this book because I ve already turned my mind to finding my next book which will have to be GREAT to wash away the annoyance I ve built up from pushing through this oneI have a friend who read my reviews and once told me it d be SO hilarious if I just wrote the word TRASH as a book review for the next truly terrible book I encounter and then just dropped the mike I won t do that here but there were parts where I was honestly tempted 2 stars for premise and premise alone and maybe even because I fancy the cover it s brilliant I received an advance read physical copy of this book from the publisher Berkley in exchange for an honest reviewFOLLOW ME HEREGoodreads Twitter Instagram Get a Copy of My Book Book Editing Author Coaching Submit Your Book to Me

R house she is completely blind sided Trinity Avenue has been her family’s home for years Where are all her belongings How could this have happened Desperately calling her ex husband Bram who owns the house with her Fi discovers he has disappearedFor richer for poor. I loved our house by Louise Candlish I couldn t put it down it was truly addictive compelling and hypnotic It was by far the best psychological thriller I ve read for uite a while and I expect it to do extremely well in the bestsellers chart A family moves into the house they ve just bought in Trinity Avenue Nothing strange about that Except it is your house And you didn t sell it Fiona Fi arrives home to find a removals van outside her house Trinity Avenue has been her family s home for years Where are all her belongings How could this have happened Desperately calling her ex husband Bram Fi discovers he has disappeared The Fi uncovers the she realises their lives have been turned upside by a nightmare of their own making A devastating crime has been committed but who exactly is the guilty party What has Bram hidden from her and what has she hidden from himI enjoyed reading Fiona s recollection of the story through a podcast and Bram s through a letterword document interspersed with the events as they happened This was a uniue way of story telling and very creative that was fun to follow and obviously very skilfully put together Although Fi was perhaps a little too forgiving and nice towards her husband it was believable considering her love for the children and the concern for their welfare I personally haven t heard of the birds nest set up before but can see how it could work by putting the childchildren s needs first Property fraud murder adultery secrets lies betrayal double crossing this book has it all and much twists and turns along the way that keep the story exciting and entertaining Many a time I was caught out at the sudden revelationsThe premise of the story is such a frightening scenario especially with the fraudsters being so close to home and it really did have my stomach in a flutter of nerves thinking about it happening to me I will definitely be reading by this brilliant author again as far as I m concerned Louise has reached the dizzy heights of psychological suspense with professionalism creative imagination and tremendous storytelling I was spellbound to the very last page and uite upset when it ended but wowWith a beautiful cover too this book just oozes to be read and it should come as no surprise that I highly recommend our house to psychological and thriller readers young and old it s tantalisingly good and not to be missed5 stars
