Our House by Louise Candlish

Reading Our House was a bit like going home, not because of the story, but because of the location around my London home towns of Penge and Crystal Palace. Note: There is a replica of the Crystal Palace exhibition building in Dallas near where I live now.

Fi seems to be a magnet for whatever can go wrong does! Her husband's infidelity is just the beginning of his betrayal when, for the sake of their two boys, she suggests a bird's nest agreement  and he takes advantage of the situation. The boys would stay in the home and the parent, during their custody days, would stay at the home with them. But Bram's infidelity is just the tip of the iceberg when he hides from his wife his numerous drinking and driving arrests and a driving ban which he sometimes chooses to ignore. Throw in a blackmailer or two, Fi's poor choice in a boyfriend and the possibility of losing the house she has fought so hard to keep, and you have a fast moving, page turning, novel.
