Our House by Louise Candlish

3.5 Stars

What would you think if you came home from a weekend getaway to find someone new moving into your home? Probably something like . . . .

Just like Fiona did in this selection when she got home to the “birds nest” to find it occupied by a new family. You see, Fiona and her soon-to-be-ex-husband Bram split after he just couldn’t keep it in his pants – despite being given a second chance. In an effort to not scar their children any more than necessary, the two chose to maintain ownership of their (dream) home where the children would remain permanently and lease a small flat where the non-custodial parent at the time would reside until it was their day with the kids once again. So how the hell did it fall under new ownership? You’ll have to read Our House to find out.

This was a solid 4 – maybe even 4.5 Stars – for me. I enjoyed the slow rolling delivery immensely, thought the pace was perfect, LOVED the storytelling of both his and her perspective . . . . until that ending . . . . .

Seriously. Why does everything but the kitchen sink need to be thrown in to a perfectly good book? All that extra mumbo jumbo at the end was completely unnecessary and knocked down the rating of potentially one of the best domestic thrillers I’ve read. Buuuuuuuut I'm rounding up instead of down. Mainly because of that cover.
