I did enjoy Our House but I’m sad to say I didn’t particularly like this book.

This was a very slow read, and too slow for my liking.

There are some unexpected plot twists, but nothing mind-blowing. Honestly, I just dislike most characters, especially the Booths, so much that I had a hard time being invested in the story.

The story was told by multiple POVs, which I enjoyed more since I could see the different perspectives on what was going on the street, and what certain characters were thinking, or hiding.

If you like slower-paced books and books about suburbia and what lengths people will go to, I recommend this novel. If not, I suggest skipping this one.

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


Lowland Way is the suburban dream. The houses are beautiful, the neighbors get along, and the kids play together on weekends.

But when Darren and Jodie move into the house on the corner, they donʼt follow the rules. They blast music at all hours, begin an unsightly renovation, and run a used-car business from their yard. It doesn't take long for an all-out war to start brewing.

Then, early one Saturday, a horrific death shocks the street. As police search for witnesses, accusations start flying--and everyone has something to hide.
