The Wrong Move
by Jennifer Savin
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?
The Wrong Move is a dark, twisty domestic thriller following Jessie, who moves into a new flatshare in Brighton with three other flatmates. She thinks she’s found the perfect place to live – but when she learns that a previous flatmate has disappeared in suspicious circumstances, she starts to doubt if she can really trust these strangers after all.
Jessie has moved to Brighton and thinks she has found the perfect flat share at no. 4 Maver Place. Though it soon becomes apparent that not all is at it seemed at first glance when she discovers that the previous flatmate Magda who’s room she is now taking over, disappeared suddenly and under suspicious circumstances.
I have never multi flat shared but I did rent out a spare bedroom many years ago and I vowed never to do it again, and this book expertly portrays life living in a shared accommodation with strangers. Jessie’s flat mates are friendly and welcoming, we have Lauren who does everything to make her feel welcome in the flat, Sofia who is never actually really there as she tends to stay over with her boyfriend Henry and there is Marcus, he is quite shy a bit of a loaner and tends to hole himself up in his room most of the time.
As the story progresses little things start to happen leading Jessie to become paranoid and wondering who she can really trust in the house, Lauren starts to become clingy and slightly unhinged and when the story comes to a head you are met with a twist that you never saw coming.
This was a slow burner, setting the scene and building the tension but I loved this book and for a debut it was a brilliant first book!
