Today I’m on the tour for The Tenant by Angela Lester, thank you to Zoé at Zooloos Book Tours for organising it and inviting me to take part and thank you to the author and the publisher for my copy.
Synopsis: Amy is the perfect landlady. But she does have some ground rules…
Kate has always dreamed of a life in music. And now she’s finally done something about it – giving up her steady job, moving to the city to enroll in a degree program at a prestigious college.
Needing a place to live, she answers an ad and moves in with Amy who seems a nice lady – mothering and protective.
At first Kate is glad to have some support in this strange city, but gradually Amy’s presence becomes more and more stifling – it just seems so hard to get away from her. And every time Kate tries, something terrible happens…
As her life spirals downwards, Kate struggles to understand what’s happening. Is Amy plotting against her? Or is she simply buckling under the stress of adjusting to her new life?
Fearing for her sanity, Kate knows she needs to get some answers and begins to look into the history of the creepy old house she shares with Amy. What she finds is beyond her worst nightmares…
My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧.5
My Thoughts: I really enjoyed this thriller, it was a slow burn, at times a little too slow for me but there was something about the writing that made it impossible for me to put down and keep turning the pages.
We’re following Kate, who is wanting a career in music so she’s given up her job and the stability she had to attend a music college and get her degree.. the only problem is that she has no where to stay.. enter Amy a landlady who recently lost her mum and is looking for a tenant for company as well as much needed money.
There’s a whole host of different characters and who all have an integral part on the story.
Every one is hiding something & poor Kate can’t remember anything, is she sleepwalking or is she drinking too much and having blackouts?
The chapters were the perfect length for me for a thriller which had me always saying “just one more” and before I knew it I’d finished the book!
I guessed parts of the reveal but not all of it.
A good solid thriller that I would recommend to everyone ☺️
