Book Description:

Rosie is homeless and winter is closing in. So she can’t believe her luck when a total stranger, Mr. Adams, invites her to stay.

But Mr. Adams has a secret. He has chosen Rosie because she reminds him of someone very special from long ago. Maybe she can even help him recapture that distant happiness.

Of course, she might need a little encouragement, but that’s fine…
What he doesn’t realise is that Rosie has a secret too, a secret that will have horrifying consequences for them both.

So instead of the heaven he had hoped to find, Mr. Adams finds himself fighting to escape the special kind of hell created by… the girl downstairs.

The Girl Downstairs – the stunning psychological thriller, perfect for fans of Mark Edwards, K. L. Slater, Miranda Rijks.

My review:

What a creepy atmospheric book. This one is a slow paced psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end. Mr. Adams is a loner and the book is entirely from his point of view so you get to experience how off he is. Focused on his grief, it’s hard to tell if he is reliable or not. But what are Rosie’s motives?

I must stress this one is dark and disturbing, but twisty and unpredictable. A different sort of read.
