YOU THOUGHT IT WAS THE PERFECT FLAT…
When Jessie moves into a flatshare at Maver Place, she’s finally found a decent place to live.
And when she’s befriended by fellow tenants Lauren and Sofie, she’s got great flatmates to share it with.
You think she’s safe. You think she can trust these people.
When you flatshare, how well do you really know the people that you’re living with?
You escape a bad relationship, put yourself back together and start a new life in a new town, in a new flat. Jessie finally felt her life was back on track but was it?
Slavin has written a pretty good psychological thriller and I definitely raced through the pages.
The mystery of the previous occupants of Jessie’s room, mysterious emails and phone messages definitely maintained my interest. Jessie’s flat mates were interesting especially Lauren who seemed just too good to be true, with her instant attachment to Jessie. As events became a little creepier you wondered if Lauren was the culprit, but then again it could have been her ex boyfriend or even one of the other flat mates. The list was endless which made the novel all the more intriguing, creepy and eventful.
Slavin see sawed back and forth, as she made the reader work hard. The differing voices of the characters gave you the story from all angles but also sent you down trails that led to nowhere, that made you rethink before you decided on alternative answers. I loved that she played with us and her characters before she finally unveiled the truth.
It was novel that certainly distracted during lockdown and I look forward to more form Jennifer Slavin.
