  • Crazy meets crazy, loved it

    One crazy crazy family. One crazier ending. Nick and Amber are divorcing and selling their house. 13 go in, 12 come out of the open house. Then the games begin. Amber has a huge list of suspects Lots of twists, halfway through my head was spinning with the twists. Thought I had it figured out but no. So crazy it was unbelievable with bad choices on Amber's part. What is wrong with that. Made for a great read . Wont be holding an Open House anytime soon.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Who is left behind?

    Amber has separated from her husband Nick after his affair. With her two sons, she’s still living in the same house Nick and his brother grew up in and still annoyed by her mother-in-law Barb’s frequent surprise visits. However, now that she’s met Richard, the new love of her life, she needs to sell the house to move closer to him. She hires a real estate agent who arranges an open house. Using a Ring doorbell, she watches thirteen clients enter as the open house begins. Twelve people leave. Yes, only twelve… And that’s only the beginning. What follows is the stuff of nightmares. Unexplained noises in the night. Furniture moved. Items disappearing. While The Open House is narrated in alternate voices by Amber and Barb, another unknown voice adds a threatening sense of dread. As Amber feels more and more threatened, she’s not sure who to trust. Nick, even through he betrayed her? Richard, who seems to avoid her? Her nosy neighbor? Barb? As events build to an unexpected conclusion, Amber must decide who is on her side…and who isn’t. The unique premise of the one person left behind propels The Open House into star territory. This would be a 5 star review if it had ended as well as it began. Instead, the conclusion, although surprising, throws in too many complications. The last chapter is not believable and should have been omitted. However, Amber is a strong character, trying to do the best for her boys, and her worries are realistic. The concept provides real suspense. 4 stars. Thank yo to NetGalley, Avon Books UK and Sam Carrington for this ARC.

  • Mind blowing!

    My mind is blown. Literally! "Thirteen people go inside. Only twelve leave." WHAT?! I was hooked by this before even starting the book and new it was going to be good. I really enjoyed this book. The characters had me gripped throughout and I had n0 idea h0w it was going to turn out and not even the slightest idea of what was going to happen at the end. I definitely didn’t expect that ending, that’s for sure. The book definitely creeped me out and did make me too scared to leave my room at one point. A thriller where children come out with really creepy stuff definitely turns me into a bit of a wuss but I think that’s what makes it a good thriller. Especially reading it during October, a creepy read was needed on the run up to Halloween. One thing I know for sure I will never be doing after reading this book is.... never putting my house through and Open House event if it ever goes on the market. NO CHANCE. I do wish that the ending had a little bit more to it, as the rest of the book was so gripping and made me wanted to read more and the ending didn’t really do that for me after finding out the twist. This knocks a star off from me, however I recommend this book so much.

  • A chilling read

    After the breakdown of her marriage, Amber is set to move on with her 2 sons and her new boyfriend. The only thing standing in her way, is the family home, that she hasn’t been able to sell. When her realtor suggests an open house, she reluctantly agrees but, things take a turn on the day when 13 people enter the home but, only 12 come out… The Open House is a chilling read that does not lack in the creepy vibes or the goosebumps on your arms departments. It immediately pulls you into its dark and twisted world, where I found I could not untangle myself from it until the final page. I love Sam Carrington’s writing and she does a great job at ramping up the tension and suspense throughout the book. There are plenty of twists and edge of your seat moments, that all lead me to furiously flicking the pages on my Kindle to see how it was all going to come together and unfold. I throughly enjoyed The Open House. It’s plot is strong and it’s motive sinister. The ending is different and a bit out of left field but, it did not deter from my enjoyment of the story. It was a pleasure to read and review The Open House, which I recommend.

  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    It’s not very often nowadays that I’m unable to guess how a book might end - this book surprised me and kept me guessing until the last pages! Sam Carrington has done an amazing job of writing the characters in this book, and manages to keep the suspense going all the way through. I enjoyed the smaller chapters and like how they are written from a specific characters point of view. Make sure you’ve left yourself plenty of reading time, because you’re going to want to read this book in one sitting!
