Our House By Louise Candlish

When Fi Lawson arrives home to find strangers moving into her house, she is plunged into terror and confusion. She and her husband Bram have owned their home on Trinity Avenue for years and have no intention of selling. How can this other family possibly think the house is theirs? And why has Bram disappeared when she needs him most?

Bram has made a catastrophic mistake and now he is paying. Unable to see his wife, his children or his home, he has nothing left but to settle scores. As the nightmare takes grip, both Bram and Fi try to make sense of the events that led to a devastating crime. What has he hidden from her – and what has she hidden from him? And will either survive the chilling truth – that there are far worse things you can lose than your house?


My Thoughts:

I have enjoyed all of Louise’s books so far and I loved how this story was bought together by two points of view. I think the plot line is different but it really works. There is a twist at the end which made it complete. I liked the way that places near to where I live where mentioned it makes me feel part of the story. I did find it a little confusing at times but in the end a good read.

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

The Oyster Catcher By Jo Thomas

The Oyster Catcher By Jo Thomas

Dooleybridge, County Galway: the last place Fiona Clutterbuck expects to end up, alone, on her wedding night.

But after the words ‘I do’ have barely left her mouth, that’s exactly where she is – with only her sequined shoes and a crashed camper van for company.

One thing is certain: Fi can’t go back. So when the opportunity arises to work for brooding local oyster farmer, Sean Thornton, she jumps at the chance. Now Fi must navigate suspicious locals, jealous rivals and an unpredictable boss if she’s to find a new life, and love, on the Irish coast. And nothing – not even a chronic fear of water – is going to hold her back.

Join Fi as she learns the rules of the ocean – and picks up a few pearls of Irish wisdom along the way…

My Thoughts:

This was such a lovely little story, as soon as I saw the cover which is stunning by the way I knew I wanted to get lost into the world of the characters in this book. I love reading a book where you actually learn something like in this book I was utterly fascinated about the process of breeding and collecting the oysters. I wouldn’t necessarily try one myself but I have a better understanding about them now. Jo has put alot of work into researching it and it clearly shows. I loved the story that went along side it and the characters were all brilliant apart from Nancy who I just wanted to slap. You have to have a baddie though and she definitely was one. I would recommend this book.
