I loved this book. The story line was fantastic, you never know where it's heading. Very authentic and original. The characters have depth and are individual. Didn't want to put it down, wanted to know where they are all going to end up. Loved the way the story gradually revealed itself. Highly recommend.

Jane stumbles on the rental opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to live in a beautiful ultraminimalist house designed by an enigmatic architect, on condition she abides by a long list of exacting rules. After moving in she discovers that a previous tenant, Emma, met a mysterious death there - and starts to wonder if her own story will be a rerun of the girl before. As twist after twist catches the listener off guard, Emma's past and Jane's present become inexorably entwined in this tense portrayal of psychological obsession.

Every thing about this book is a rip off from "Fifty shades of grey" and "the girl on the train"

The author has taken the bones of "fifty" controlling, contract, demanding, women who look the same (dark her, blue eyes, slim, pale skin, lookalikes) caught In a relationship with contracts, rules and control. Then over lapped with "the girl on the train" the story of two women 'now' and 'then' trying to work out the murderer.

The characters had no depth other then the scripted words and going through the motions of their day there was nothing. No personality, no dimensions, I didn't feel any emotion or empathy with the main characters. There was no surprises with 'who done it' very predictable, boring, cringe worthy and contrived. No authenticity or originality, pure rip off story even the title.
