The Girl Before by J.P. Delaney

I was lucky enough to be one of the few chosen to read a sampler of this novel in November 2016. I rated the sample as 5/5 and I am very pleased to say now that I have read the full novel I would again recommend this as a fascinating 5 star read.

My review of the sampler can be viewed here: Sampler Review

The book is cleverly told from two different people, at two different times….but their stories are linked in such a way that you just have to keep reading to find out what comes next!

I found myself dreaming of living in One Folgate Street, where one rule is that nothing is lying around – everything is tidy. Well my house isn’t like that but I would love for it to be… but then I enjoy my things around me and I am sure I would find it much more difficult that Emma or Jane did.

Thanks to JP Delaney, Quercus Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read the sampler and the full novel.  Highly recommended reading!!

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.
