Finished The Girl Before by JP Delaney. I received a copy for review.
This novel takes place over two time periods in the same house. Jane lives there now and Emma lived there a few years ago. The house is…unusual. It’s almost never rented out and the owner (who also designed it) has rules. You can’t redecorate. You have to put everything away as soon as you’re done. Dishes are washed, dried and put away immediately. The decor is minimalist and will stay that way. The house is smart (it remembers you and lights, shower temperature, etc. are the way you like it. It sounds strict and it is. But that’s not the weird thing. The house…glitches sometimes. Settings change. But are they glitches or something more sinister?
This book is so creepy and it’s impossible to know how much is real and how much is imagination. I couldn’t stop reading and almost every twist took me by complete surprise.
Read this and go in knowing as little as possible. Recommended.
