About The Book
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.
With thanks to the publisher for the copy received. The Wrong Move was a novel that contains everything I like about fiction. A narrator that I was slightly unsure about, an escape from the past and a feeling that life wasn’t going to be as straight forward as hoped for. All combined with some thoroughly unlikeable housemates.
Jessie’s attempts to find somewhere decent to live were convincing. I can just imagine what some accommodation looks like with an exorbitant price tag. I could appreciate how happy she was to be made so welcome by her housemates, despite their differences. It’s not something I’ve ever experienced, and in honesty, I don’t feel I’ve missed out.
There were times when it was very sinister. The feelings Jessie had about being watched and suspecting that people had been in her room. But more so when you got to see what her housemates were thinking. There were two out of the three who I’d have been very reluctant to be over friendly with. The online searches that Jessie could do because of her job left me with a strange feeling. Knowing that it was underhand but fully understanding why she would choose to do it.
This is a book that made me very happy not to be looking for a house share.
