The Girl Before by JP Delaney

I would like to thank NetGalley for the opportunity to read the “The Girl Before” sampler and I can’t wait to read the full book to discover what happened to Emma at One Folgate Street, and what the house now has in store for Jane.

Fascinating. Captivating. I was seduced from the first page.

I can totally relate to Emma and her messy ways before she makes the decision to move into the house with all these rules. I would love to live in such a way but don’t think I could ever manage not to have something lying around – especially books!

What happened to Emma?  Was she murdered? Did she break house rules?

Synopsis

Enter the world of One Folgate Street and discover perfection . . . but can you pay the price?

For all fans of The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl comes this spellbinding Hitchcockian thriller which takes psychological suspense to the next level.

Jane stumbles on the rental opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to live in a beautiful ultra-minimalist house designed by an enigmatic architect, on condition she abides by a long list of exacting rules. After moving in, she discovers that a previous tenant, Emma, met a mysterious death there – and starts to wonder if her own story will be a re-run of the girl before. As twist after twist catches the reader off guard, Emma’s past and Jane’s present become inexorably entwined in this tense, page-turning portrayal of psychological obsession.
