BOOK Reviews

“Wow, wow, WOW!!! I loved that the twist didn't come until I was 99% into it. I wasn't expecting it and, frankly, I'm still shocked! This is an extremely readable, very well written novel which I shall be enthusiastically recommending. I can honestly state that I've never read anything like it. Karen Osman is an author now firmly on my radar! ”

"Woah, The Home had me gripped from beginning to end. I liked the way different chapters gave a different character's thoughts and their story...There is a very clever twist that I didn't see coming at all. If you want a fast past book with gritty characters and a chilling twist at the end then this is the book for you. I'd like a sequel!"

"A thought-provoking thriller that had me eager to turn the pages, but also dealing with issues that lingered with me after the epilogue. Very accessible characters, some of them very familiar and easy to relate to."
