Hello Weekend

Welcome to my little corner on the web. It’s the weekend yeah!  Hello weekend!  I am hoping to get in some crafting and a lot of reading.  What are your plans for the weekend? 

Review of The Girl Before By: JP Delaney


Reeling from a traumatic break-in, Emma wants a new place to live. But none of the apartments she sees are affordable or feel safe. Until One Folgate Street. The house is an architectural masterpiece: a minimalist design of pale stone, plate glass, and soaring ceilings. But there are rules. The enigmatic architect who designed the house retains full control: no books, no throw pillows, no photos or clutter or personal effects of any kind. The space is intended to transform its occupant—and it does.

After a personal tragedy, Jane needs a fresh start. When she finds One Folgate Street she is instantly drawn to the space—and to its aloof but seductive creator. Moving in, Jane soon learns about the untimely death of the home’s previous tenant, a woman similar to Jane in age and appearance. As Jane tries to untangle truth from lies, she unwittingly follows the same patterns, makes the same choices, crosses paths with the same people, and experiences the same terror, as the girl before.

My Review:

WOW This had some many twist and turns, and I had to keep reading to see how this was going to turn out, if even some of it was believe able.  There was the Famed architect Edward Monkford who chooses occupants for a home he rents out very carefully. Each renter must agree to an extensive list of rules in order to live there. Who would think that someone would even agree to his terms? The comes along Emma who was eager to move there with her boyfriend after her previous apartment got broken into.  Emma is willing to move there even though it means giving up everything she owns.  And then there was Jane that was also wanting to start fresh, she was drawn to Edward although Janes starts to uncover some secrets of the house and Edward. 

I thought that the story line was great, and it kept me wanting to know the all the secrets of Edward and I even asked myself would I sign a lengthy contract to just to live in a house, and I am sure I would not. 

This is the first Book that I have read by this author, and I will be on the look out for more of his books. My rating on this is 3.5 stars  

Thanks for Reading One Girl and a Book
