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. 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?
This book was absolutely brilliant! The whole story had me gripped from beginning to end. It is an excellent psychological thriller. It reminded me a bit of Lock Every Door by Riley Sager. I felt connected to the characters throughout which is very important. My only issue was I had huge theories about what was going on and I felt hints were dropped throughout that never came to anything. I won’t say what as I don’t want to give it away but I felt some things were left unanswered. However, the ending was good. It was a slight twist on what we had been led to believe which was good. This book was great and I’d highly recommend it!
