About the Book:
It’s an opportunity she can’t refuse. The woman before her tried...Freya Miller needs a miracle. In the fallout of her husband’s betrayal, she’s about to lose her family home, and with it the security she craves for her five-year-old daughter, Skye. Adrift and alone, she’s on the verge of despair until a chance meeting with the charismatic Dr Marsden changes everything. He’s seeking a new tenant for a shockingly affordable flat in a fashionable area of London. Adder House sounds too good to be true… But Freya really can’t afford to be cynical, and Dr Marsden is adamant she and Skye will be a perfect fit with the other residents. But Adder House has secrets. Even behind a locked front door, Freya feels as if she’s being watched: objects moving, unfamiliar smells, the blinking light of a concealed camera… and it’s not long before she begins to suspect that her dream home is hiding a nightmarish reality. Was it really chance that led her here—or something unthinkably dark? As the truth about Adder House starts to unravel, can Freya and Skye get out—or will they be locked in forever?

Is it hopelessly naïve to believe that for once, fate has smiled on us and at last, well find a place we can begin to live again?

Although I’ve only read a handful of Miss Slater’s books so far, I’ve liked them all. She’s definitely a talented writer . This book seemed a bit different than those I’ve read , as it’s more of a mystery than thriller or domestic drama? While it was good, it wasn’t my favorite out of those I’ve read. It had quite a confusing start, so it took awhile to get the story straight of who is who and how they connect. Anyhow, this is was a decent read but not great...the writing is worth 3.5 stars.

If you want an excellent K.L. Slater book, I recommend The Silent Ones or Single.
