Our House by Louise Candlish ~ Publication Date 8-7-2018 ~ @Louise_Candlish @BerkleyPub
From an internationally acclaimed author, a disturbing and addictive novel of domestic suspense where secrets kept hidden from spouses cause shocking surprises that hit home…
There’s nothing unusual about a new family moving in at 91 Trinity Avenue. Except it’s her house. And she didn’t sell it.
When Fiona Lawson comes home to find strangers moving into her house, she’s sure there’s been a mistake. She and her estranged husband, Bram, have a modern coparenting arrangement: bird’s nest custody, where each parent spends a few nights a week with their two sons at the prized family home to maintain stability for their children. But the system built to protect their family ends up putting them in terrible jeopardy. In a domino effect of crimes and misdemeanors, the nest comes tumbling down.
Now Bram has disappeared and so have Fiona’s children. As events spiral well beyond her control, Fiona will discover just how many lies her husband was weaving and how little they truly knew each other. But Bram’s not the only one with things to hide, and some secrets are best kept to oneself, safe as houses.
So, if you’re looking for an addictively disturbing read that weaves the perfect tale of deceitful secrets… this is the book for you!
How incredibly crazy would it be to come home one day to find a new family moving into your house! Obviously a grave mistake on someone’s part. Surely your husband will sort it out when you speak with him. Ha! Fat chance… Fiona Lawson, aka Fi, is living a huge, big, fat, lie! But unfortunately for her… she hasn’t a clue.
Bram on the other hand, Fi’s husband, was guilty once of infidelity. I guess forgiving and forgetting was Fi’s first mistake. Once a cheater, always a cheater! Well things spiral from bad to worse as she realized the tangled mess Bram has gotten himself into and subsequently dragged his entire family through.
I can’t say how much I loved this book enough so if you’ve liked our reviews in the past, go out and get it! You will be utterly mystified at the level of lying, cheating, deceitful behavior of these cast of characters! Not everyone is who them seem to be either! Tsk, tsk…
