Am home tons of space the perfect location and a friendly owner who wanted a young couple to have itSo when they made a grisly discovery in the attic Ja. 45 Dark and Twisted Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟5This book was originally titled “The House“ I believe this is actually a apt title this book is about Jack and Sid finding their dream house a house really out of their price range yet unbelievably they get it at first they feel lucky although Jack is never uite sold on the house The house is also filled with all the possessions and furnishings of the previous owner who moved to Australia and left his belongings behind at first they were having fun going through the former owner’s belongings having fun playing the vinyl records but then they encounter a strange smell and then things go sideways and bump in the nightThe beginning of this book is told very cleverly Jack and Sid are co authoring a manuscript to give to the police explaining all the events leading up to the discovery of a murdered neighbor in the alley behind their house I thought this was very effective you got a glimpse into both Sid and Jack’s perspectives it was almost as though you were reading their journal or they were talking directly to you I found both Sid and Jack’s characters uite interesting although I was always a little sure that Jack was being honest Sid was a little bit of a mysteryDon’t want to go too much into the plot just know it is full of twists and turns and uite dark there is also abuse so if this is something that puts you off a book I would not recommendSomething I found interesting is in the beginning I was thinking is this a ghost story Did I misread the blurb I had read it many months ago then I read the authors notes at the end of the book and this book did in fact start off as a ghost story but then it took a turn I‘d classify this as a domestic thriller with a dab of psychological thriller thrown in so if you are a fan of either of these genres I would strongly recommend thank you so much to the publisher and Net Galley for a copy of this book

Read The House

The HouseCk and Syd chose to ignore it That was a mistakeBecause someone has just been murdered Right outside their back doorAnd now the police are watching them. This is a domesticpsychological thriller heavier on the domestic side which kind of threw me for a loop I always love a dual perspective novel and this one added another dimension the first part of the story is told from journal entries and the conversational tone of the narrative was uniue This one just went in a different direction than I was expecting and I think that because my expectations weren’t met I was a bit thrown It is difficult as an avid reader of this genre to be surprised and it is truly because of my personal expectations that this one didn’t head where I thought it would go I encourage readers to try this one for themselvesThank you to Netgalley Berkley and Simon Lelic for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
