The Housemate: A Book Review

Happy February!

Another book review heading your way just this time we are going in a slightly different genre. This time we are looking at possibly one of the best psychological thrillers I have read in a long time. The Housemate by C.L. Pattison has you gripped from the first page right till the end. This is a book I struggled to put down. As the first book from C.L. Pattison, I very much feel I need to read more of her books.

You invited her in.
Best friends Megan and Chloe have finally found the perfect house. And when they meet Samantha, she seems like the perfect housemate.
You don’t know what she is hiding.
But Megan thinks there might be more to Samantha than meets the eye. Why is she so secretive? Where are her friends and family? And why is she so desperate to get close to Chloe. 
You are about to find out…
When strange things start happening in the house, Megan and Chloe grow more and more alarmed. They soon realise letting a stranger into their home – and their lives- might be the worst idea they ever had…

Megan a Pharmacist who’s calm and organised and Theatre set designer Chloe, who’s creative and sensitive and suffers from night terrors, have been best friends forever since meeting at university twelve years ago.

After some change in life plans they are now both living in London together, once they had found their perfect house to share but they can only afford the rent if they find a third tenant. When they meet Samantha, a freelance fashion journalist who loves cooking, she seems the perfect housemate.

Unfortunately, suspicion grows between Megan and Sammi, while Sammi seems determined to get close to Chloe. Strange things happen and Megan and Chloe wonder if letting a stranger into their house was really such a good idea.

I was gripped to this book from the moment I picked it up if you love easy to read psychological thrillers you will love The Housemate.

Have you read The Housemate? What did you think?

Love Always,

Gee xo
