{Arc Review} Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

Book Summary:
No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.
As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly, disturbingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When 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 . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.
Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.

My Review:

I really do enjoy reading Riley Sager books so much. He is known to have such amazing twists in his mystery/thrillers books. He is one of my favorite adult books reader.

This book start out at the fancy, hotel. Where the celebrities and the rich stay.

For Jules it was her big break to start over, she becomes an apartment sitter. Pretty simple enough, live in a very nice apartment and follow some strange rules for three months. Jules even try to make friend with a fellow apartment sitter. But her new friend disappear, then things don’t seem right at home. What dark secrets lurking behind the walls of Bartholomew?

This book is slow start, but picks up pretty good in the middle. I did have fun guessing throughout the book. The twist at the end, was shocking crazy. That you must read for yourself. If your in mood for an good mystery then check Lock Every Door on July 2.

Happy Reading!!!!

The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager

Book Summary:
Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she–or anyone–saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.
Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings–massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.
Yet it’s immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp’s twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present.
And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price.

My Review:

I know I’m reviewing an adult read. I did enjoyed Riley Sager other book, The Final Girls. So i was excited for his new book. He is gonna to be my go to guy for good adult thrillers. If you guys not into adult thrillers, then you can skip this review.

The detailed summary give most of the book away. It what written on back of book. Don’t forget it’s a thriller and there be some twists and turns.

I enjoyed the main character story, Emma. I liked how the story switches up between her time at camp in the past and now. There’s a lot of questions on what happen years ago and Emma the main suspect. How can three campers just disappears years ago? Emma faces her past when she goes back to camp. Will she be able to find answers to the past?

The book is a slow start like any mystery/thriller read. Once it picks up, you will keep guessing until the very end on what’s going on. Beware, Riley knows how to shock you in the end. In mood for good thriller, then this book be a right for for you.

Happy Reading!!
