My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars

Synopsis: No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.

As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly, disturbingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her, Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.

Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.

My Thoughts: The moment I heard that Riley Sager was coming out with another book I was super excited. I’ve been such a fan of his last 2 books that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. Well I have to say this one did not disappoint.

This story is about a girl named Jules who is in desperate need of some cash. She finds an ad for an apartment sitter job at this very expensive and mysterious apartment building. Along with the job come a couple of rules, no spending the night away, no visitors and no disturbing the residents. As time goes on Jules begins to realize that not everything is what it seems and there is more to this apartment building than meets the eye.

One of my favorite parts of this book was the characters you encounter in this book. I was a big fan of Jules. She’s a very determined character. She kinda befriends one of the other apartment sitter’s and when she goes missing she is very determined to find out what happened to her. In the past Jule’s sister went missing and was never found. Jules takes this experience with her throughout the book hoping that the same thing doesn’t happen to the other apartment sitter. While she is on this journey she begins to discover the truth about the building she is working for. Another character I adored was Charlie. He is the doorman that works for the building and he is just the sweetest guy ever. I really enjoyed the interactions they had with each other. I feel he really lighten the mood at times. There is another character that Jules meets a bit into the book. Her name is Bobbie and Jules meets her when she is looking for the other apartment sitter. I wasn’t excepting her to be as nice as she was. I didn’t think she would end up popping up but she does and it was just a really good scene. I just don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil anything.

Another thing I liked was the story of this book. I have to say it was very enjoyable. I really loved going on the journey with Jules trying to figure out what was going on in this apartment building. I did guess one thing but only a slight part of it so when I found out everything I was still in complete shock. I did not see any of that coming. I have to say this is hands down my favorite Riley Sager book yet. He just does such a great job setting everything up and unravels everything so nicely. I really do just love all the twists he put in this book.

Also if you’ve ever read any of Riley Sager’s books then you know he loves going back and forth with the past and the present. I feel that it is so well done in this book because you start off with the main character in the hospital trying to remember what happened and then it goes back and forth with this. I swear nothing sucks me into a book more than me dying to know what happened to the character and I need to keep reading to get the whole explanation. I always enjoy those little teases throughout the book. It’s like I’ll give you a little bit of information but you gotta keep going to find the whole story.

Overall I thought this was such a great story. It kept me guessing until the very end. I really enjoyed all the characters Jules met throughout the book. You get such a interesting range of characters that I enjoyed. I did not see any of the twists coming which was nice because I was shocked. If you’re into thrillers I would highly recommend this plus I didn’t really mention this but it also has some creepy horror vibes which was such an added bonus. You don’t want to miss this one.

  1. I think Sager did an amazing job about switching between the past and the present. It made sense to me, and I know sometimes it can throw me off. In this one, it didn’t. I also liked Bobbie as a character too! I’m glad she was in there. Great review and I’m so glad we were on the tour together 🙂

    1. Oh 100%. Sometimes switching between past and present can be so confusing and not make sense. He does a great job of making it flow well. Yeah Bobbie was such a great character. I was happy to see her return later on. I’m so glad we were both on this tour too. It was such a great read & I’m glad we both ended up liking it.


  2. I found Jules so easy to relate to and am really impressed by this book. I need to read Final Girls, and of course whatever Riley Sager comes out with next. I have read The Last Time I Lied and I think in that book and this one he did a great job of bringing to life two completely different environments.

    1. Yeah this is my favorite book by him. He did such a great job with everything. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next. I hope you enjoy Final Girls when you pick it up. The Last Time I Lied was also such a great read. Both very different environments and so well done.
