Review: The Open House

The Open House The Open House by Sam Carrington
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wooooooo

My main genre to read are thrillers so of course you get books with similar tropes.
This story isn’t unique.
This plot is not unique.

BUT, this book by Sam Carrington shines out from the many.

Why?
Because it drew me in and sat me out.
Her writing is such that you can’t help but ‘live’ within these pages. You can’t help but get involved with the characters.

Superb premise as it opened up to more dilemmas that added to the already intense feelings I had, the anxiety I had putting myself in the main characters shoes.

Toward the middle of the book I had a short list of names that I should have suspicion over. Reading on......I then cut them down to three likely candidates.

The multiple whammy left my jaw on the floor. WHAT!

They say you never fully know a person, not even if you live with them.
Decisions that had to be made blew my mind, the decisions that some made, rocked my world, when I thought they’d not do this.....they did.

A very good book that I’ll remember for a long time.

A beacon of light amongst similar thrillers.

The ending though did take a star off due to it being a bit unbelievable.
