Libby is a victim in more ways than one. Thankfully, however, she has escaped a bad situation with her now ex-boyfriend, Gary. Glad that she has been able to find a new home, sharing a house with several other tenants, Libby is thankful to have a nice landlord, and has started to get to know at least a couple of the neighbors. However, it does not take long for her life to begin a downward spiral.
Things do not go smoothly for Libby. For starters, not only does she occasionally hear some of her neighbors argue, it seems that Gary has no inclination of letting her go. Then, after learning that the previous tenant had disappeared without a trace, her sense of danger grows exponentially.
While Libby strives to become comfortable, there is one neighbor that she has not met, the mysterious Mr. Bull. A mystery begins to be formed as it seems that there a secret to be had in this new life that Libby has undertaken. This is most certainly something that she definitely is not happy about. One of the oddities that Libby is forced to deal with is her cat Einstein has started to take on strange behaviors. An indoor/outdoor cat, his disappearances do not worry her at first, but as strange is her new life has suddenly become, his actions become very concerning.
Feeling that she is being watched, readers of this engaging read might wonder if she’s actually being gaslighted. With incredible tension, surprising twists and turns, nefarious characters, as well as very even pacing, The Houseshare proved thrilling from beginning to end.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
