' I live in small top floor apartment with my father, Skye. ''Oh God.' Linda 's hand flies to her mouth and she squeezes her eyes shut as if she ca n't bear the pictures that are flooding in.

Asked if you tried to view the apartment, despite it being something you shoul never afford to rent in a million years? ''Something like that, yes.' I swallow again, wiping my damp palms on my jeans.

He ’ s eeking 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 sarcastic, and Dr Marsden is adamant she and Skye will be th perfect fit with the other residents.But Adder House has secrets.

Was it really chance that led her here—or something unthinkably dark? As the truth about Adder House starts to unfol, can Freya and Skye get out—or will they be locked in forever? MY THOUGHTS: We bot say that saying about not looking he gift horse in the mouth, but it eems that sometimes we should.

Although the apartment house sounds absolutely eautiful, who ould need to live in a building named for a snake? But beautiful as it is, sumptuous, luxurious, it has a past, one that the enigmatic pair of Doctor and Audrey Marsden are unwilling to reveal.

Thi nly person who appears remotely normal in the uilding is the elderly Lily Brockley who takes Freya and Skye under her wing, warning her to 'be careful' of the other tenants without quite explaining why.

As Kim says, ‘ it as a fairytale … at the nd of thi ery long road! ’ Kim is a full-time autho and lives in Nottinghamshire with her husband.DISCLOSURE: Thank you to Amazon Publishing UK via Netgalley for sharin th digital ARC of The Apartment by K.L. Slater for review.

He forgo who Freya was when he targeted her at Starbucks and offered her an apartment at Adder House.He knew that her stepfathe had recently passed away, and that she ad a five year old grandfather, named Skye.

But, when it was all said and done, the ending left me wanting ... I didn ’ t eve buy it.

Perhap better, rent is based on the individual 's bility to pay.Soon Freya and Skye have moved into Adder house and are elcomed by the other peopl.

Freya begins to loo as if anyon has been in her home, things have been oved, and her landlords make her uneasy.Although I enjoyed this ook, the ending was less than satisfying for me.

Freya and her daughter Skye are both intriguin characters and I thought for their plight.
