The Open House by Sam Carrington

Updated: Feb 6, 2022

Wow! What a brilliant book, “The Open House” is such a great read. This is my first by Sam Carrington book and most definitely would buy more from her, actually checking my Amazon account I’ve already bought two titles lol. Now a bit of the story:

Nick and Amber Miller are splitting up and selling their Devon family home. But despite the desirable location, the house isn’t moving. Not a single viewing so far.

When their estate agent suggests an open house event, Amber agrees, even as she worries about their gossiping neighbours attending and snooping around their home.

But Amber has more to worry about than nosy neighbours. Because 13 people enter her house that afternoon, and only 12 leave.

Someone doesn't want the house to sell and is willing to do anything to stop it.…

Actually the blurb doesn’t do it justice it’s so much more, so many things going on twist and turns on every chapter, it keeps you thinking you’re sussed it out, but then it takes a 180 turn, and then you’re at a loss and that’s what I love about it. One last thing, watch out for Burb she’s quite a character.

Sam Carrington lives in Devon with her husband, two border terriers and a cat. She has three adult children and a new grandson! She worked for the NHS for fifteen years, during which time she qualified as a nurse. Following the completion of a psychology degree, she went to work for the prison service as an Offending Behaviour Programme Facilitator. Her experiences within this field inspired her writing. She left the service to spend time with her family and to follow her dream of being a novelist.

SAVING SOPHIE, her debut psychological thriller, published in September 2016. It became a Kindle e-book bestseller, with the paperback hitting The Bookseller Heatseeker chart at #8. Sam was named an Amazon Rising Star of 2016.
