“One time is an anomaly. Two times is a coincidence. Three times is proof.”– Riley Sager
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.
At first I was afraid I would have to DNF this book. It starts off a bit slow- there a lot of hints that something is going to go down. But I was waiting for something, anything, to happen.
Then I got to the last 100 or so pages.
Let me tell you.
It went DOWN!
The ending was such a roller of emotion and suspense! I found myself just flipping through the pages unable to put the book down! I had to know what was going to happen!
I went from shocked, to mad, to disappointed, the shocked again! My emotions where EVERYWHERE!
Overall, I gave this book 4.5⭐️ only because it did take quit a bit of the book for it to really get into the thrilling aspect of things.
Which does add to the suspense of the book, I guess, and really added to the ending, so I can’t really complain too much.
There were a lot of hints to who is the ‘bad guy’ and what exactly is going on at the Bartholomew.
If you are a thriller and suspense lover, I recommend this book!
