How would you feel if you came home from vacation only to find another family had moved into your house? What a terrific plot for a book full of suspense. That is exactly what happens in ‘Our House’ by Louise Candlish.
Fiona Lawson, her husband Bram and their children have lived at the Trinity Avenue home in an affluent area of London for years. Fiona and Bram have worked all their adult lives to have this home of their dreams.
After being ‘caught in the act’ with a neighbor, Fiona and Bram decide to share the house and children during a separation period while they decide what they really want at this stage of their lives. While one lives in the home for two weeks with the children, the other will live at a London flat close by. This way the children are not uprooted from their home. A sound plan that all agree with.
Everything appears to be working out simply fine until Fiona takes the children for a few days of vacation coming back to find all their furniture has been removed and the house filled with another family’s belongings. But where is Bram? No one has seen him. All appearances point to Bram being the responsible party for this strange predicament. Have his indiscretions turned him into a villain or an unsuspecting victim? How does Fiona react to the loss of her home? Is there anything she can do to get it back?
Another suspenseful tale full of twists and turns. You may think you have it all figured out after just a few chapters but keep reading. The ending is full of shocking bombshells.
