No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.
As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her, Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.
Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s sordid past and into the secrets kept within its walls. What she discovers pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.
I just finished this book and man do I have a reading hangover in the best way! This book took me some time to get into, it started off slow and I felt like maybe the narrator was just running in circles rather then finding any answers.
But then it happens….that huge moment when the book shifts from predictable to Holy Moly that was not expected at all! From there the book sped by as I tried and failed to predict what was happening! I felt like Jules that I was racing to the big finish and finding out how everything fits together in one sordid and creepy way!
Unfortunately I can’t post much without giving off or ruining the huge twists! But I will say if you are a fan of thrillers that leave you shocked or have read ‘Her’ by Britney King than this is the book for you! I suggest getting pizza and wine while reading this just like Nick and Jules do in the book!
Leave me a suggestion of your favorite thriller!
Until next time that’s the tea!
