Hello my lovely book buddies!
I am so pleased to bring you my review for this fabulously creepy audiobook.
You won’t look at an empty room the same again 😲
Well I’m making sure I definitely lock every door after reading this one, and windows, and taping down my letterbox 😮
A great creepy little thriller that will have you hiding under your duvet.
**We are looking for that special someone to apartment-sit for approx. 12 weeks.
You will get $12000 for this …….Yes you did read that right $12000!!
For this job you will be required to apartment sit, in a luxury set of apartments in the famous Bartholomew building, situated overlooking Central Park.
There are a specific set of rules that must be abided by, however, don’t let that dissuade of this fantastic opportunity**
Jules sees that advert, and all her dreams come true in an instant, she is currently living on her best friend’s couch, as she lost her job and her boyfriend all in one day.
Everything seems to be against her, and she is unable to get herself sorted without any money behind her, until she sees the advert.
After blagging her way through the interview, she is offered the position, she is ecstatic about this, unlike her friend, who can’t help feeling that if something is too good to be true….it probably is!
Rules for the duration of her stay are a bit….well, weird, but if you are going to be paid 12 grand after 12 weeks, well you’d be prepared to follow some weird rules too, right?
After settling in and looking around, Jules meets another apartment sitter called Ingrid, and they soon become BFF’s, for a while…until she goes missing!
I loved this book, it has very creepy vibes about it, and reminded me a little of Rosemary’s Baby, The Bartholomew is based on The Dakota Apartments in NYC, complete with gargoyles and old-fashioned elevators with cages.
I mean, the building just screams creepy right? Add some gargoyles to the bedroom windows, and it’s Creepy-Dreams-R-Us 🤪
Perfectly narrated by Stephanie Cannon, who was just brilliant, this one is definitely on to add to your TBR
Prepare for Creepy-Town
About The Book
You’ve been offered a luxury apartment, rent free. The catch: you may not live long enough to enjoy it….
No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents.
These are the only rules for Jules Larson’s new job as apartment sitter for an elusive resident of the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile private buildings and home to the super rich and famous.
Recently heartbroken and practically homeless, Jules accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.
Out of place among the extremely wealthy, Jules finds herself pulled toward other apartment sitter Ingrid. But 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 – but the next day, her new friend has vanished. And then Jules discovers that Ingrid is not the first temporary resident to go missing….
Welcome to the Bartholomew…you may never leave.
