Like a House on Fire By Caroline Hulse

Like a House on Fire By Caroline Hulse

Things Stella and George have had blazing rows about:

– Misquoting Jurassic Park
– Leaving a Coke can on the side of the bath
– Fitting car seats for their hypothetical kids

In other news, they’re getting divorced.

But first, Stella’s mum is throwing a murder mystery party and – with her dad losing his job, her mum’s recent diagnosis, and some very odd behaviour from her sister – now is not the time to tell everyone.

All Stella and George have to do is make it through the day without their break-up being discovered – though it will soon turn out that having secrets runs in the family…Sent

My Thoughts:

I haven’t read any of Caroline’s books before so was looking forward to reading a new author. I think anyone will be able to relate to at least one of the characters in this book. It’s all about family and how they interact with one another. It reminded me of growing up in our family home with the bickering, the laughter and love that comes from being in a family. Caroline has nailed it with this story.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
