E tweet fashion I really enjoyed the alternating points of view but I will say the commentary from the viewers and their tweets grew tiresome and felt nneeded In the end it felt a little kitschy to me I suppose the point I m trying to make is that it s hard sometimes to tell the difference between weakness and strength Between hero and villain We re also given Bram s POV through a word document letter that allows the reader to follow along with the information Fi knows and what Bram knows to actually be happening on his end Bram is a decidedly The Soldiers Mission (Secret Agent Series, unlikable andnreliable narrator However Candlish did a superb job of creating a lot of empathy through Fiona s emotion and her connection to her soon to be ex husband Despite knowing that he was a Grade A wanker I still felt for his story and through that I felt a deeper connection to Fi No it s not the sense of coming home It s the The Ranchers Surprise Marriage understanding that what or where or who you love is only ever borrowed There is no permanent ownership not for any ofs This The Ancient Central Andes ultimately loses a star for me because while it was consistently paced it started to drag a bit in the middle I normally blow through these types of novels and they tend to be very much edge of your seat don t talk to me must finish now and I didn t feel that for the entirety of this read There wasn t wasted time onnnecessary characters but it did feel there was a lot of wasted time on Lover Extraordinaire (Extraordinaire, unnecessary detail However despite this when things picked backp in the last third of the book they certainly packed Christmas With A Hero uite the punch The twists for the most part aside from one which didn t feel it had all the proper development were everything a reader could want I was both surprised and satisfied in the end I completed this as a Traveling Sisters read and I d certainly suggest it to anyone to pickp I hadn t originally thought property fraud would be all that thrilling but I m happy to report I was yet again wrong Thank you to Edelweiss for a copy of this ARC in exchange for an honest review All opinions presented are my own 45 STARS Fiona Fi Lawson lives in a very desirable London suburb and she always gets a warm tingly feeling when she enters her street However on this particular beautiful winter s day she spots a removal van outside her house but it can t possibly be her house the house a few doors down has been on the market it must be that one As she reaches her house the realisation that someone is moving their furniture in their personal possessions hits her like a sledge hammer but she ll sort it out won t she it s just a ridiculous mistake surely Well actually no it isn t a mistake and she desperately needs to contact her estranged hu 45 Stars Filled With Madness 5 Father wears his Sunday bestMother s tired she needs a restThe kids are playing p downstairsSister s sighing in her sleepBrother s got a date to keepHe can t hang aroundOur house in the middle of our streetOur house in the middle of ourOur house it has a crowdThere s always something happeningAnd it s sually ite loudOur mum she s so house proudNothing ever slows her downAnd a mess is not allowed Madness Our House 1982Fiona was certainly house proud but whether or not she liked a mess she certainly found herself in the middle of one imagine returning home to find someone else has moved into your house The problem As far as you know your house was never for sale and why can you not reach your ex husband on his phone Where is your stuff where are your children Sounds dreadful doesn t itThe nraveling of this story was ite brilliant told from Fiona s perspective through podcast episodes Fiona was such a likable generous person who absolutely put her children before all else and truly this bird nest custody arrangement really played nicely into her house being sold right out from nder her BUT I m absolutely not custody arrangement really played nicely into her house being sold right out from Mortal Sin under her BUT I m absolutely not to blame the victim here We also got Brahm s perspective through a letterword doc now it was really hard for me to elicit any sympathy for him he really was a reckless selfish individual The one good thing I can say about him is I do think he truly loved his wife and children he just didn t know how to go about it but what a horrible mess he left for Fiona to cleanpAlong with the podcast and word doc we also got the real time story this was a TS read and some of the sisters found this to be repetitive however I did not I really liked getting to see events How to Win an Argument...

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. Fiona Lawson comes home to discover that there are other people moving into her home taken aback she confronts the people moving in When they insist that they have bought the house and now legally own it Fiona tries to get in contact with her husband Bram Though Bram and Fiona are separated they have been maintaining a custody arrangement that allows one of them to stay with the children in the house on different days through out the week while the other stays at an apartment Fiona begins to realize what a mistake she has made in suggesting this arrangement as the day progresses and she is Aquinass Way to God unable to reach Bram or locate their children Fiona struggles to find a solution as she faces the impending loss of her home and family Spoilers ahead blah blah This was really good like there was maybe one whole complaint I had about this one and that was it This was definitely 45 stars I was so engrossed through out and honestly it really roped me in the way things escalated Like it was just driving violations and the next thing you know Bram is committing fraud and laundering money It also felt pretty believable and I have to say even though Bram had his faults I felt so bad for him through out The way he just kept getting boxed into the situation I know he has created the situation but it was stillite depressing especially knowing that in the end he ends Bijoux en origami up killing himselfThe whole plot was just amazing the way itnfolded and the twists and everything managed to stay believable at the same time I also appreciate the sad but hopeful note at the end Now the one thing that peeved me the fact that it gets revealed that Merle is the one Bram slept with because it didn t feel foreshadowed I m mostly confused because I thought at one point in the book the women from HR comes to talk to him and tell him she s pregnant but now I m thinking it clearly must have been Merle The Hokku or Epigram Versus of Basho unless he knocked them bothp and I just misread it That just threw the whole thing off kilter because I wasn t even wondering who it had been and I had attributed the pregnancy as being with the women he slept with after the separation I just felt taken aback and it was probably all my fault I just missed any foreshadowing Anyway definitely one of the best things I ve read so far this year Prison Ramen unfortunately the list of things I have read is small this year because I have to go be responsible and all that bullshit I ll be back when I finally read a few books to write reviews but definitely recommend this one to anyone looking for their next read Our house is a very very very fine housewith two cats in the yardlifesed to be so hardnow everything is easy cause of youOn Trinity Avenue the sort of domestic bliss described in the lyrics above could not be further from the truthIn this version of Our House secrets and deception reign Our House by Louise Candlish is a taut domestic drama that follows the dual narrative of husband and wife Bram and Fi Lawson The book starts out with a crime a fraud within a marriage and the events leading p to it are then pieced together over the course of the book Through the excellent se of mixed media sources you get both Fi s and Bram s perspectives Hers is told through an extensive interview done for a podcast called The Victim and his is told through a sort of confessional manifesto I have mentioned before that I am absolute TRASH for books that incorporate mixed media sources From Bram Stoker s Dracula Stephen King s Carrie Nick Cutter s The Troop Marisha Pessl s Night Film and everything in betweenI just love how these different elements such as journal entries newspaper articles psychologist s notes and police reports can truly bring a story to life I find overall that this type of format enhances my commitment to a storyline In my opinion Candlish did a really great job weaving the two perspectives together whilst also running it along with a shorter present events perspective If not done well this type of formatting can often become disjointed and confusing but I never felt that hereAs for our protagonists Fi and Graham I didn t like either one of them Fi *Came Off As Weak *off as weak passive aggressive while Bram is a total coward Did this keep me from enjoying story Absolutely not I am not a person who needs to like any or all of the characters in the books I read I mean I only like about 50% of the people I meet IRL so how can I expect to be enad with all the book characters I meet This being said although to me personally Fi and Bram were far from likable I did get drawn down the rabbit hole of deception and absolutely wanted to know the truth behind it I think if we can all learn a little something from this story it would be honesty IS IN FACT the best policyThe ending of this was fabulous Just when I thought at least one thing was going to go the way I wantedDo I think you should read this book Yes definitely I think this would be a great book to read around the holidays It will make your own family seem so much better by comparison and if that doesn t recommend a book I don t know what will Thank you so much to the publisher Berkley Publishing Group for providing me with a copy to read and review I had a lot of fun with it and look forward to reading from this author 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 ite a while and I expect it to do extremely well uite a while and I expect it to do extremely well the bestsellers chart A family moves into the house they ve just bought in Trinity Avenue Nothing strange about that 4 thrillers are really bad for me trusting other people everyone is a liar stars Roll er coast er roll er coast er a thing that contains or goes through wild and npredictable changes Aye you re not wrong there WebsterThis starts right out of the gate and immediately draws the reader in We begin our story with Fiona Fi Lawson arriving home earlier than expected to see strangers seemingly moving furniture in and out of her home without The Beast on the Brink understanding why Upon entering she and these strangersickly realize that something is amiss The Vaughns have just completed their purchase of a beautiful home in an incredibly desirable neighborhood in London nbeknownst to Fi the now previous owner With this information the story begins and Fi s life falls apart This was one of this information the story begins and Fi s life falls apart This was one of most cleverly written and formatted stories I ve read in a long time I ve honestly never encountered anything ite like this and I really enjoyed it for the most part We are given alternating POVs between Fi and the husband she is currently separating from Bram Not just are we given alternating POVs but the formatting of those views changes as well Fi is now participating in a podcast called The Victim think Serial and she s telling her story first hand We re also given commentary from the viewers in 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

H Bram his phone is disconnected Even worse the boys never arrived at school As the details Tethered to the World (A Phantom Touched 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 Candlishses 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 Bad Luck, Trouble, Death, and Vampire Sex unknown recipient at the same time Fi is on the podcast They tell the story of their marital breakp 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 The Forked Tongue Revisited up with the other and a revelation in one person s story is then pickedp 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 nreliable narrator is two nreliable 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 Blue Crush (Blue, 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 I m going to keep this one short and sweet because I ve found I don t have much to say that hasn t been said already This wasn t a bad read the cover is inviting the premise is brilliant and there was even a nice twist thrown in so I did enjoy this overall My main issue was that the middle portion of the story felt bogged down It could just be that I was in a funk when I picked thisp and needed something a little fast paced for the moment but I felt the narrative was repetitive and that we were reading the same scenes again and again which caused me to struggle for a bit Overall the majority has raved about this one and I think it s worth picking Flight of the Piasa up to decide if you enjoy it for yourself And by golly that cover isite stunning I received a review copy via the publisher My reviews can also be seen at Stars Can you imagine coming home one day to find strangers moving their belongings into YOUR home Unpacking and putting things away while you stand there in shock Well that s exactly what has happened to Fiona Lawson in Our House The book starts off right at the heart of it Our female protagonist forty two year old Fiona Lawson is heading down her stree 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 nder the guise of recounting her story to these podcast listeners really burnt my biscuit They WERE SO ANNOYING RIDICULOUS AND DISTRACTING THAT I TRAINED so annoying ridiculous and distracting that I trained 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 ite 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 literary agents and editors know best and as though their stamp of approval a good book makes 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
