YOU THOUGHT IT WAS THE PERFECT FLAT…
When Jessie moves into a flatshare at Maver Place, she’s finally found a decent place to live.
And when she’s befriended by fellow tenants Lauren and Sofie, she’s got great flatmates to share it with.
You think she’s safe. You think she can trust these people.
When you flatshare, how well do you really know the people that you’re living with?
A dark, twisty domestic thriller about the perfect flatshare gone wrong for fans of Shari Lapena’s The Couple Next Door and Louise Candlish’s Our House.
The Wrong Move is available in ebook and paperback now. You can purchase your copy using the link below.
The Wrong Move is a terrifying, addictive read which is hard to believe is a debut novel.
Firstly the things that most stands out about this book is how realistic this book is. We’ve all had bad housemate experiences which make it easy to relate to some of Jessie’s experiences. The tension in the book slowly increases as we learn more about the situation Jessie finds herself in, some of which made my hair stand on end. It’s definitely a lesson in how little you actually know the people you live with.
I found myself in the perhaps unusual position of not liking the main character very much. Jessie is incredibly annoying and quite whiny at times which made it difficult to warm to her. I really wished I could reach into the book and shake her at times. Honestly some of the things she moaned about where ridiculous, the most memorable being the cobwebs- um never heard of a duster?! I did wonder why she didn’t just move out as she was obviously so unhappy.
Overall I enjoyed this book and found it an entertaining read. There were lots of twists and turns to keep me very intrigued. The feeling of paranoia was strong throughout the book and I liked that I was never entirely sure if it was all in Jessie’s mind which made things very interesting. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
Huge thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Ebury for my copy of this book.
