OUR HOUSE by Louise Candlish & Giveaway



A disturbing and addictive novel of domestic suspense where secrets kept hidden from spouses cause shocking surprises that hit home…

“There’s nothing unusual about a new family moving in at 91 Trinity Avenue. Except it’s her house. And she 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.

The premise is quite original, but OUR HOUSE gets bogged down in the middle. Don’t give up; the surprise ending is worth it.

  1. I love my home. It’s in the city limits of my small town. However it’s surrounded by trees. There is no one close by. I enjoy the privacy.


    1. Sadly my relationship with my house is that it sits down the street from where I now live with another family. Product of a bad divorce. Miss that house.


    1. I love my home! It’s close to the city for convenience but in a historic neighborhood with mature trees and unique houses.


  2. My husband and 4 other teachers built our house one summer. Love it! Since my children are now adults and have houses of there own they still love coming home to their “real” home.! Wonderful memories this house holds.


  3. we are updating our house from 1986. bathrooms are done. gotta do flooring in main living area next. doing one project at a time. i have planted so much outside. just love it!


  4. My husband and I just moved two months ago to a much smaller house. I love it, a lot easier to keep clean! 🙂


  5. We are preparing to retire and move to a very small town and build a house. But I will miss where we have been for over 30 years.


  6. My husband built our home. After his passing I had to decide whether to downsize or stay put. I couldn’t bear to leave what he worked so hard to give me. I’m surrounded by his craftsmanship and grateful for his talent.


  7. We just recently sold our cherished home where we raised our two children and for a couple of years, our son, his wife, and our grandson. My husband built many shelves for me and a window seat with storage. The ghost of our cats still lingered there after we moved out. Hope they find their way here to our current home where our grandson spends much time with us. My husband has new projects in the works. Currently, it’s adding height to the rail upstairs. It’s too low for my liking. I’m worried about losing my balance and toppling over. We’ve bonded quickly with this house. It’s a 1935 cottage we’ll treasure.


  8. We built our “dream” house 17 years ago and we still love it so much. The yard is too big so we may have to move😢😢😢😢


  9. I moved so many times (lol) but my deepest memories of home was my home until 10-year-old: it had a huge garage where my brothers and I used to roller skate and play with our toys, where my dad’s dog used to live and I even had lots of pets (guinea pigs and plenty of birds). It was big and there was a big tree right in front of the house with cicadas singing all the day. I can say it was wonderful.


  10. Our house belonged to my in laws. It’s tough because my husband doesn’t want to change anything, since he grew up here. It is a nice, quiet neighborhood.


  11. I love my home. I would love to do some renovation projects in the future, but I’m not in a big hurry.


  12. I like my home – I don’t love it, but it was inherited from my husband’s aunt, came at just the right time, and is the perfect location for both our jobs.. so it works!


  13. My home is an older home, kind of farmhouse colonial. It needs a lot of work and updating but the moment I walked in with the real estate lady I instantly felt at home and knew I wanted it. It reminds me in looks and feelings just like the house I grew up in my whole life with my parents. A safe haven, HOME!


  14. I like my house because it has hardwood floors and is new; however, it’s way too small for our family. We tried to downsize and it didn’t work. We just looked at a bigger house today!
