BOOK REVIEW THE GIRL BEFORE ME BY LAURA WOLFE

I switched on the bedroom light, casting a glow across the apartment. No one was there. But then the locks on my front door caught my eye. I thought I’d locked them both, but now one was open…

When I moved into the apartment with my little daughter Lily, it was meant to be a new beginning for us. Now we are right in the heart of downtown, in a building with its own doorman. For the first time in a long time we are safe, away from my ex-husband.

But just as we settle into our new lives a letter arrives for someone called Annie. The neighbors tell me to ignore it. She’s just the woman who lived here before me, who moved out one day without a word.

Curious, I open it anyway and am shocked by what I read. It says Annie wasn’t safe. It said she needed to get out.

Now, I can’t escape the idea that someone is watching us. I feel I can’t trust my neighbors.

And I can’t help but think… Something happened to Annie. Something bad. And Lily and I are not nearly as safe here as I thought we were…

Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley.

A enjoyable twisty read which makes you question who to trust straight away.

I’ve gone through the contact procedure myself so I vould really emphasise with the character.

Fast paced and unpredictable. Packed with tension and cleverly written.

Secrets and lies are scattered through as we slowly discover the truth. This is definitely a author I’ll be reading again.
