It’s an opportunity she can’t refuse. The woman before her tried…
Freya Miller needs a miracle. In the fallout of her husband’s betrayal, she’s about to lose her family home, and with it the security she craves for her five-year-old daughter, Skye. Adrift and alone, she’s on the verge of despair until a chance meeting with the charismatic Dr Marsden changes everything. He’s seeking a new tenant for a shockingly affordable flat in a fashionable area of London.
Adder House sounds too good to be true… But Freya really can’t afford to be cynical, and Dr Marsden is adamant she and Skye will be a perfect fit with the other residents.
But Adder House has secrets. Even behind a locked front door, Freya feels as if she’s being watched: objects moving, unfamiliar smells, the blinking light of a concealed camera… and it’s not long before she begins to suspect that her dream home is hiding a nightmarish reality. Was it really chance that led her here—or something unthinkably dark?
As the truth about Adder House starts to unravel, can Freya and Skye get out—or will they be locked in forever?
Revised edition: This edition of The Apartment includes editorial revisions.
I made the mistake of starting this on an evening. Once I started, I became so hooked that I couldn’t put it down until I finished it.
You know the old saying that if something is to good to be true, then it probably is? This is the case for Freya and her daughter Skye. I couldn’t blame her for making the decision to take a stranger up on his offer, especially when the flat is extremely great value for money.
As Freya and her daughter get settled in, I started to feel uncomfortable. You just know something is going to go wrong. In my mind I was giving all the tenants in Adder House the third degree. Were they as they seem at face value or is something sinister lurking underneath?
Obviously you have to read this novel for yourself to see what exactly happens and as to just who is behind the strange going on’s in Freya and Skye’s new home. I loved Freya and Skye’s characters. It always helps when you have characters that are likeable and both of these are. Especially little Skye as she is adorable.
The Apartment is a story I fell straight into and couldn’t get back out of until the conclusion. I was hooked on this suspenseful read that had me frantically turning the pages to see what was going to happen next. It really is an addictive read that has you second guessing everything. Absolutely loved it!
