No one can be trusted in Our House by Louise Candlish. One day, Fiona Lawson comes home to see strangers moving into her house. Where are her kids? Where is her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Bram? The strangers claim that they had purchased this highly desired home, which is impossible because Fiona never put it up for sale! Even though this neighborhood is highly desired, it is obvious that no one can be trusted. In this domestic thriller, everyone is a liar.
I don’t want to give any more information regarding the synopsis because it will give away certain twists. I love the uncertainty. I did predict some of the twists but because everyone is untrustworthy, there is always doubt. It kept me glued to the book. I actually enjoyed the characters. They weren’t exactly likable, but they were fascinating, to say the least.
This book has four different points-of-view: Fiona’s podcast, Bram’s letter, and Fiona’s present moment and Bram’s present moment. The transitions between the points of view are relatively smooth, but sometimes it is just a little tedious. The book is almost 400 pages and I don’t think it needed to be that long. Some of the narrative is repeated because of the different point-of-view.
I won’t give away the ending, but the ending left me in shock. I do love an entertaining domestic thriller and it is fascinating to read about this unusual situation. Overall, I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
