📖 BOOK REVIEW⠀📚
BOOK: Lock Every Door
AUTHOR: Riley Sager
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (⭐)
Published: July 2, 2019
This is my second Riley Sager book and I do really enjoy them so far. The story is told between the present time where Jules is in a hospital and the past where she resides in the building. And even when you think you know what is going to happen to her… believe me, you don’t. The ending left me shaking my head at the inhumane aspect of it. You don’t know which way to turn or what to believe. And Riley continues to weave the narrative throughout the story in a masterful way.
I cannot wait to continue to read the last current book (The Last Time I Lied) as well as Home Before Dark coming out this summer!!!!
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, disturbingly 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 dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew 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.
