This is quite a good thriller. It's a bit spooky and scary, leads you down the garden path a bit but yes I was quite impressed. Jane stumbles on a perfect rental opportunity at 1 Folgate Street. This is a modern, state of the art house designed by architect Edward Monkton but it comes with a very lengthy contract with lots of rules.
This book resembles Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and 50 Shades of Grey. Yes Edward is a bit of a controlling landlord with a past and he seems to get to Jane who is the tennant 'now' and Emma the Tennant 'then'. It alternates between the two stories of both women and after Emma mysteriously dies Jane goes on a mission to find out what really happened to her.
It is a book with mystery, suspense, and a bit of sex in there too. I know......it made me blush. It is a good foundation to the story though as through all their erratic behaviour you start to piece together what might have happened. I kind of guessed the end but I wasn't too disappointed. It was a tense page turner for me although I did get a bit confused which of the women's account I was reading about. The chapters are quite short so you have to stay with 'who's who'.
It is worth a read.......I wanted to keep picking it up to see what was going to happen and that's a good sign for me. The end for me was a bit flat but I'm not going to go into that as I don't want to spoil it. Let me know what you think thought if you have read it.
You can buy 'The Girl Before' from Amazon here:
It is also available in most supermarkets too. I know Tesco have an offer of 2 books for £7 at the moment so pick a copy up with your shopping.
Thanks for reading today......come back tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday.
