NEW RELEASE

Title: The Apartment

Author: K.L. Slater

Release Date: April 28th 2020

Genre: Psychological Thrillers

It’s an opportunity she can’t refuse. The woman before her tried…

Freya Miller needs a miracle. In the fallout of her husband’s betrayal, she’s about to lose her family home, and with it the security she craves for her five-year-old daughter, Skye. Adrift and alone, she’s on the verge of despair until a chance meeting with the charismatic Dr Marsden changes everything. He’s seeking a new tenant for a shockingly affordable flat in a fashionable area of London.

Adder House sounds too good to be true… But Freya really can’t afford to be cynical, and Dr Marsden is adamant she and Skye will be a perfect fit with the other residents.

But Adder House has secrets. Even behind a locked front door, Freya feels as if she’s being watched: objects moving, unfamiliar smells, the blinking light of a concealed camera… and it’s not long before she begins to suspect that her dream home is hiding a nightmarish reality. Was it really chance that led her here—or something unthinkably dark?

As the truth about Adder House starts to unravel, can Freya and Skye get out—or will they be locked in forever?

I had finished this book awhile ago. I needed time to process my thoughts as they were mixed once I had finished. I was torn between feeling like I didn’t really like the book to this book is interesting. It can be both I guess. Let’s move on to why I thought it was interesting. I felt the twist was interesting. The whole reason at the end on why certain actions were done made sense and added to the creep factor. I can respect madness. Okay, on to why I didn’t like it. The story felt like a whole build up and then didn’t quite deliver that whole suspense punch. While I thought the twist was interesting, it just didn’t deliver or have the intended effect I think the author was going for. None of the characters were very likable. Save for maybe one and they were barely in the story. As a whole, this book is an okay read. I will continue to read the author’s work but sadly this one just didn’t do it for me. I give this 3 stars.

Single: A totally gripping psychological thriller full of twists by K.L. Slater – My Review


Release Date: November 25th 2019

Genre: Psychological Thriller

~Synopsis~

‘I keep feeling like I’m being watched – dropping the boys off at school, choosing wine at the supermarket – but when I turn around there’s nobody there…’

When single mother Darcy’s son falls from a rope bridge at a local playground, life stands still. She clutches his small, limp body, frozen, until a pair of strong hands push her aside, and she watches as George, a local doctor, saves her son’s life.

George is a single parent too, and with his twinkling hazel eyes, easy charm, and lack of wedding band is almost too good to be true, but coffee becomes lunch, lunch becomes dinner, and soon they can’t go an evening without seeing each other. When he invites her to move into his beautiful home with its sprawling garden for her boys, Darcy doesn’t hesitate.

But as Darcy is settling in, she receives a bunch of flowers with a chilling message. George says they’re from an obsessed ex-girlfriend, Opal, and days later Opal turns up at Darcy’s son’s football match. She claims to have shocking information that could threaten George’s custody of his daughter.

Darcy doesn’t know who to trust, but she’s starting to suspect that, whatever the truth, she might have put her beloved boys into terrible danger …

~My Review~

Everyone has secrets and some aren’t who they appear to be. Single, is a suspense filled read that will have you guessing till the last page.

This book is a pretty good read. It has some twists. The characters were hardly likable. Kind of refreshing. I know, weird right? That is part of why the story worked for me. Some of the things that happen cannot be pulled off by likable characters. This is my first K.L. Slater book and it won’t be the last! I loved the author’s style of writing. I can’t wait to check out more! I give this 4 stars.
