Our House by Louise Candlish Review

This book starts with the main character Fiona, seeing people move into her house. Thinking this is a mistake, she slowly realizes it wasn't a mistake and that in fact her husband, ex-husband technically, has sold their house and has disappeared!

The story then starts at the beginning and explains what happened, and why Bram, her ex, has done such a thing. The different perspectives really had my opinions and sympathy changed from one character to another. There are also little twists in there that I didn't expect. Especially near the ending, really love how it played it. Noticed how I said 'near' the end, and not the actual ending.

I love my ending tied in this neat little bow and completed. With this book, you will not get this! I was really shocked by the ending and felt like I had to speak to people about it and google the heck of the ending to see what other people thought! It was truly unexpected, and I still have questions! Highly recommend!

Thank you to Berkley for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.

On a bright January morning in the London suburbs, 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. 

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 co-parenting 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.
