You Me Everything - by Catherine Isaac

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb: 


You and me, we have history.
We have a child together.
We have kept secrets from each other for far too long.
This summer, in the beautiful hills of the Dordogne, it is time for everything to change.
You, Me, Everything is a heartfelt and unforgettable novel about the lengths we are prepared to go to for those we love.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review* 


I was over the moon, when this book landed on my doorstep and I have been excited to read it ever since. Let me tell you one thing: It will not disappoint.

We follow the story of Jess and her family. She had her son William in her early twenties and that's where we meet her in the prologue. William's father Adam doesn't make a good impression in that scene. So it's no surprise that 10 years later, he is not in the picture anymore and lives in France. Jess' mum doesn't like this idea and encourages Jess to make Adam a part of their lives. Jess dad is enjoying being being a grandfather. Well, Jess decides to visit Adam in France, where both her and William spend a lot of times with Adam. It's not always easy, but it's actually great to see them as a family. 

I absolutely adored all the characters. They all have their own story to tell and Catherine Isaac found a great way to include them all in the storyline. They all seem very authentic and the author put a lot of detail behind them. William gives the story a fresh touch as well. I also really like the author's writing style. The scenes were so lively, engaging and full of emotions. A difficult and devastating mentioned as well and kind of leads things in the plot. I dont want to tell you more here, just read the book! 

The book includes so much: difficult topics, family, memorable scenes, wonderful characters, love and so much more. The way the story is told, makes the reader hooked and it's a place you never want to leave again. 

An amazing story, full of fascinating details!! BRILLIANT and BEAUTIFUL!!!

Our House - by Louise Candlish


My own copy
Original Cover














The blurb:

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. 


When Fiona Lawson comes home to find strangers moving into her house, she's sure there's been a mistake. She and her estranged husband, Bram, have a modern co-parenting arrangement: bird's nest custody, where each parent spends a few nights a week with their two sons at the prized family home to maintain stability for their children. But the system built to protect their family ends up putting them in terrible jeopardy. In a domino effect of crimes and misdemeanors, the nest comes tumbling down.

Now Bram has disappeared and so have Fiona's children. As events spiral well beyond her control, Fiona will discover just how many lies her husband was weaving and how little they truly knew each other. But Bram's not the only one with things to hide, and some secrets are best kept to oneself, safe as houses.


My Opinion:

Wow, wow, wow!!!!

This book has blown me away! Louise Candlish has created a real masterpiece here!!

The story is gripping from the start and you just want to keep on reading, because it’s so intense and powerful.

The writing and the storyline are very clever and engaging. It’s told from different perspectives and that’s great, because you get the whole picture. You want to know immediately what happened to Fiona, how she is dealing with the situation and also what is up with her estranged husband Bram.

The plot is full of twists and turns and it just keeps you guessing the whole time! The characters are very interesting and they were very well lined out. I couldn’t really relate to any of them, but they were perfect for this story and it was so fascinating to follow them around.

Fiona Lawson arrives home to discover other people are moving in her house. She doesn’t know why and she can’t reach her husband Bram. The topic around properties, property-fraud seems boring at first and I didn’t know anything about it. However, Louise Candlish created this great story around it and made it very interesting.

BRILLIANT, COMPLEX, CLEVER and just FABULOUS!!! I have found a new favourite author.
