    The Stranger in our Home

    This story had a most unexpected ending. It was a gripping tale. I will look forward to reading some more by this author.

    Mixed thoughts

    I didn't love this one. My feelings about this book are actually pretty mixed. I didn't hate it but I am not really sure that I liked it either. I requested this book on NetGalley when it was listed as Can You Keep a Secret? without any details. I am a curious person by nature and I just had to know about this book that was so exciting it had to be kept secret. I don't think I would have asked for this book if I had known what the actual description was. The story opens at the funeral for Caro and Stephanie's stepmother. After the funeral, the estate needs to be settled and Caro needs a place to live so she goes to the house to sort through things. It becomes obvious almost immediately that the people in the small town her stepmother lived in do not think much of Caro. The only person that shows any kindness to Caro is the man living in the cottage on the land her stepmother's home is on, Craig. I found the bulk of the book to be really slow. There is a whole lot of action crammed into the last part of the book but for most of the book, it didn't feel like a whole lot happened. We spend a lot of time in Caro's head thinking about all the things she doesn't know and I hate to that it got old pretty fast. I did wonder if Caro would prove to be an unreliable narrator simply because she seemed so clueless about so many things. There were things that I did like about the book. Once all of the pieces came together near the end, I did find the book to be much more exciting. There were quite a few surprises that were revealed during the book's finale. I also liked the parts of the fairy tales that were worked into the story. I was really pretty interested in the story of the pear drum specifically. I think that a lot of readers might like this book more than I did. I didn't hate this book but it failed to completely grab me. While I found this book easy to set aside at times, I was curious enough about how everything would work out to keep me reading until the very end and I was satisfied with its conclusion. I received a digital review copy of this book from Avon Books UK via NetGalley.

    When I requested this book for review I was given no information about it other than “Can You Keep a Secret” as the title and an instruction to not review it or talk about it until after Halloween. I had no idea what I was getting into other than a psychological thriller but I was intrigued by the secrecy and the drama. I took a chance and I don’t regret it at all! This ended up being a quite unique, unpredictable book and was a real page turner. At the beginning I was intrigued by the creepy and ominous atmosphere of the old house. Was this going to be the story of a haunting? The answer is yes, and no. The main character is most definitely haunted by her past and I’ll leave it to you to discover how and why. Caro is a classic unreliable narrator and not entirely likable although she did grow on me a bit as the story progressed. There were several twists that caught me off guard and I had to stop reading more than once to process what I had just read. I was a bit unsatisfied by the ending. I don’t expect everything to be wrapped up in a shiny bow and I don’t mind a bit of open-endedness but in this case it felt like there was a lot of story left that we were missing out on. Just one more chapter or an epilogue would have made it feel more complete. Other than this small complaint I found the book to be very well done with good writing, a distinctive and unusual plot and vivid characters and setting. It is well worth clearing an afternoon to settle into this one. Just make sure you don’t have anything else to do because you will be hooked! Thank you to Avon and Avon Books UK for providing an Electronic Advance Reader Copy via NetGalley for review.
