I requested a copy of Lock Every Door through my local library and was one of the first few patrons to hold this in my hands! I love it when that happens!! I just hope many more patrons after me choose to love this one too! I was so excited to read this and get this back to the library for the next person’s turn, I didn’t even snap my own pic!!!!
Jules is broke, jobless, heartbroken, and homeless. Well, she’s crashing on her best friend’s couch while she tries to get her life together. One day she comes across an ad for an apartment sitter and decides to answer it. If anything it will get her out of her friend’s apartment and into her own space for a bit.
She ends up in one of the most exclusive apartment buildings in Manhattan. It is also one of the most mysterious. Jules finds out she will get $1,000 every week just for living there. There are some weird rules she needs to follow (no talking to residents, absolutely no visitors, and you must spend every night in the apartment), but for the money, she’s happy to oblige.
Rumors swirl around this building…from disappearances to mysterious deaths. Her best friend isn’t too keen on her staying here and keeps telling her she will lend her the money, to just leave, but Jules can’t do that. Oh, what a heart pounding adventure we go on.
I couldn’t fathom what was going on. It was absolutely bizarre; however, plausible given that we are dealing with New York City elite. That’s all I will let on and tell you there. You will have to pick this one up and read it to find out what I mean. It is a dark and creepy read. I found myself a little creeped out reading it while I spent the weekend alone. That’s what I get for reading by myself late at night! Haha.
Phenomenal 4 star book. It twisted and turned down a road that just appeared out of nowhere. I mean…the mind of Riley Sager. Wow. Jules gives us something to hold on to as she is bound and determined to find out what is happening in the building she is living in. Sager knows just how to twist you so you think one thing…but it’s really something else that is happening completely. What are your thoughts on this one??
