About Louise 

Louise Candlish was born in Hexham, Northumberland, and grew up in the Midlands town of Northampton. She studied English at University College London and lives in Herne Hill in South London with her husband and daughter. She is the author of twelve novels, including her brand new thriller Our House (Simon & Schuster UK), a hardback bestseller and now an ebook #1 bestseller. It is published on 7 August 2018 in the US (Berkley).

Louise's novel The Sudden Departure of the Frasers (2015) has been optioned for TV by Hartswood Films.

Besides books, the things Louise likes best are: coffee; TV; cats and dogs; salted caramel; France (especially the Ile de Re); Italy (especially Sicily); tennis; soup; Vanity Fair magazine; 'Book at Bedtime'; lasagne; heavy metal; 'The Archers'; driving towards the sea (but not into it); anything at the Royal Opera House; white wine; Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (or, failing that, a Starbar). 

About Our House

When divorcees Fiona and Bram agree to bird's nest custody, they think the biggest problem they'll face is each other. But when Fiona shows up at the house one day, she'll find her children and her husband are gone and a new family is moving into the house. Without any word about where they went, Fiona will have to sort through the mess of lies her ex-husband told if she wants to get her family back.

“I loved the wonderful hook of Our House, which plays with our modern obsession with property—and the vulnerability that exposes. Louise Candlish is a great writer; she inhaled me into her nightmarish world where everything we think we know is ripped from under our feet.”—Fiona Barton, New York Times bestselling author of The Widow

“An artfully plotted, affecting page-turner…a truly killer climax.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Make sure you pick up Louise's book and stay tuned for exclusive interviews, an excerpt and more!
