    Katie Sise has outdone herself with OPEN HOUSE her latest ingenious addition to the world of domestic suspense A sly stirring whodunnit with an ending that’s nothing short of perfection A must read

    Another month another below average Prime First Reads book The premise sounded interesting but OPEN HOUSE lacked originality and characters or even a victim I cared about

    Gripping and nail biting this one garnered my whole hearted involvement from the first word to the last leaving me no option but to read it in one sitting Thanks to the Firsts program otherwise this enthralling book wouldn’t have come my wayEmma McCullough vanished from a college party in the woods by the river when she was just twenty one Ten years later her case is still unsolved until her bracelet is found and the police are active on the case once againThe story is told from three different women's points of view Interestingly the majority is told in third person past tense except for Emma's POV which is first person present It allows the reader to easily connect with Emma's story and uickly become invested in the outcome I often have trouble with long paragraphs of description and telling rather than showing but this one easily kept my attentionWith an intricately woven plot full of twists and turns the reader becomes an active participant attempting to sift truth from lies and discern the who and why of Emma's disappearance Showcasing the intricate dynamics of family and friendships adds an emotional component that further invests the reader making her than simply a casual observer Heartbreaking shocking and fascinating this one is sure to please all mystery and suspense lovers

    True mystery book with unexpected twists and turnsI am an avid reader From the moment I began this book I did not put it down until I was through reading it in its entirety Katie has created a story with wonderful fully developed characters Their stories of life interconnecting in ways that are continuously being revealed to the reader I felt the emotions of the characters as the author intended for me to Being as the story revolves around the unsolved mystery of a tragic death and the decisions each character makes when dealing with that death I can say the ending has twists and turns that I did not anticipate It's a story of family some in the traditional form and some in less traditional ways It explores the uestion as to how far is too far when protecting those we love and how do we prioritize those individuals when each relationship is on the lineThis book was uickly a favorite of mine The imagery of the places mentioned in the book was something I could vividly picture in my mind while reading The characters were relatable in numerous ways Some story twists were predictable but no less heartbreaking However just as I thought I had worked the ending out in my mind there was a turn I did not see coming I highly recommend this to anyone who loves reading true mystery books that keep you guessing It is impossible to put down The reader is drawn in and needs to know exactly how the story ends

    Excellent writing I liked it I didn't love it Decent Plot with so so pacingOPEN HOUSE is an extremely intimate look at the emotional fallout that takes place when a loved one goes missing without any resolution for any period of time  Experts talk about resolution and closure which seem to reuire either confirmation of death or reasonable expectation or even proof of lifeAs OPEN HOUSE  begins Hanah and her folks have been living in anguish for ten long years since the disappearance of her older sister Emma who was a college Junior and Art student at the time  The police have long suspected suicide with Emmas body likely taken out to sea by the  wild river next to her college  When a new clue surfaces the case is reopened and suddenly everyone from Emma's pals and dorm mates to her teachers and their spouses is a suspect  Even Hanah's fiance seems to know than he  is sayingI liked OPEN HOUSE uite a bit but it is nowhere near the top of my BOOKS I LOVE LIST  It is a decent story with leisurely pacing told by an extremely talented writer My favorite thing about the book was the extremely accurate portrayal of the non verbal dialogue that takes place between humans during every interaction  Sise is an absolute master at the nuance of things left unsaidI would definitely like to read books by this authorExcellent writing I liked it  I Didn't love it  Decent Plot so so Pacing

    A uiet suburban town holds many dark secrets despite its peaceful facade Ten years ago Haley’s sister Emma disappeared and to this day her body hasn’t been recovered Some believed it was a suicide; some speculated that she had simply run off; some including Haley’s father nurse a hope that Emma may still be alive But now that Emma’s bracelet is found and the old investigation is reopened will the police be able to bring the truth to light or will Emma’s fate remain unknown forever? I really appreciated the parallel timelines and different POVs presented throughout the story Each character was wonderfully fleshed out and nearly all of them had skeletons in their closets In a uiet town where everyone knows everyone is it possible to hide such secrets for long? As several people deal with the aftermath of Emma’s disappearance the tension rises and soon you’ll find yourself turning pages as fast as possible to get to the bottom of things If you love well written complex psychological thrillers you’ll enjoy this one I would definitely recommend it to all fans of the genre

    I love a good mystery Since last year I’ve been on a thriller kick Seizing the darkness in life through the pages of a book and hanging on tight This book was among the free reads for the month of November Sounded interesting and got consistently good reviews The novel is told in the point of view of three people Haley Priya and Emma Haley’s big sister Emma disappeared one night from a party in the woods A decade later new evidence is found that reopens Emma’s case Most people in town think Emma killed her self Her father believes Emma ran away Murdered is what Haley and the mother believe happened I thought I had the book figured out in chapter 2 I know I know chapter 2 Then I thought I unraveled the mystery at 73% Alas even when I discovered the truth there was another silver lining Another secret I didn’t see comingEnjoyable book Intriguing writing Haley is a strong willed female who stuck to her instincts and I really loved that Look forward to reading another novel by this author

    Need notesMaybe it is the aging process or the fact I read so many books as well as listening to one of two at a time but I had a hard time keeping the characters straight I think I should have kept notes of who went with whom I did like the story line and the intrigue I would have liked an ending that was a little fleshed out I feel like I missed a little something I do have many distractions as we all do so that may be a part
