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 arrives home to find a removals van outside he. 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 under the guise of recounting her story to these podcast listeners really burnt my biscuit They were so annoying ridiculous and distracting that I trained myself 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 uite 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 As 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 ve built up from pushing through this oneI have a friend who read my reviews and once told me it d be SO hilarious if I just wrote the word TRASH as a book review for the next truly terrible book I encounter and then just dropped the mike I won t do that here but there were parts where I was honestly tempted 2 stars for premise and premise alone and maybe even because I fancy the cover it s brilliant I received an advance read physical copy of this book from the publisher Berkley in exchange for an honest reviewFOLLOW ME HEREGoodreads Twitter Instagram Get a Copy of My Book Book Editing Author Coaching Submit Your Book to Me

Louise Candlish ì 1 SUMMARY

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. 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 unpredictable 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 understanding why Upon entering she and these strangers uickly realize that something is amiss The Vaughns have just completed their purchase of a beautiful home in an incredibly desirable neighborhood in London unbeknownst to Fi the now previous owner With this information the story begins and Fi s life falls apart This was one of the most cleverly written and formatted stories I ve read in a long time I ve honestly never encountered anything uite 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 re 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 unneeded 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 unlikable and unreliable 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 understanding that what or where or who you love is only ever borrowed There is no permanent ownership not for any of us This 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 on unnecessary characters but it did feel there was a lot of wasted time on unnecessary detail However despite this when things picked back up in the last third of the book they certainly packed 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 pick up 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
