On a bright January morning in the London suburbs, a family moves into the house they’ve just bought in Trinity Avenue.
Nothing strange about that. Except it is your house. And you didn’t sell it.
Fiona Lawson comes home to find strangers moving into her house – they have the keys, they have the paperwork, they even have confirmation of the land registry deeds…but she’s certain there’s been a mistake because she never sold it. The book follows Fiona and her estranged husbands story from the moment (or indeed moments) that it all fell apart right up until the current day. Along the way secrets, betrayals, lies and infidelities are uncovered with a desperate underlying tone as the lies and problems start to build up.
I felt that this was a fantastic read, extremely interesting and a book that I couldn’t really put down as I desperately wanted to resolve it. I figured out some of the plot twists before they happened but I was still completely hooked which is the sign of a great writer! I’ve read a good handful of Louise Candlish’s books now and I have to say they just get better and better – in particular what attracted me about this one was the deviation from her usual front page covers to something a bit more Sophie Hannah-Esque. Definitely a great style.
