Our House

Our House - Louise Candlish

Our House grabbed me from the opening paragraph and held on tight - up until around the 30% mark. From there, it started losing me and try as I might, I just couldn't get back into it. Light domestic suspense, yes, but I failed to find anything that I would consider a thriller, psychological or otherwise. This one is a whole lot of talk, talk, talking and a lot of it was repetitive as we get both sides of the story. There are a couple of twists thrown in, but when you've reached the point of skimming to find something to keep the story moving, they don't have much impact. I do prefer a faster pace in the genre, so maybe my disappointment can be chalked up to me expecting one thing and getting another, but this one clearly was not for me.
