    Who is Jules, you might ask? She is the ever so curious protagonist who becomes an amateur sleuth when her stay at the ever so famous

    building begins to uncover its unsettling past. The buildings deep, dark secrets begin to surface, bubbling over. It's Gothic structure is over a hundred-years old and some disturbing articles have been written about it.

    Could she have made a mistake choosing to live here? The Gargoyle outside her window stood tall and ominous.  It didn't creep Jules out though, she thought it was like "

    ."  She doesn't realize it quite yet, but she will need a protector!

    I was completely drawn into this highly entertaining and unpredictable tale of the Bartholomew's dark past with its observing walls and quirky, wealthy residents. I just had to find out what happened to the other missing apartment sitters.

    say more.... just read it for yourself and you can hold Jules hand as she tries to plan her escape!

    Buddy read - Thanks for entertaining me with all your wild predictions along the way Kendall! Of course none of them were as wild as what actually happened!!

    This one is sure to stir up some discussions! Don't miss it. OUT on July 2,2019.

    Thanks to the publisher / NG for my copy to review.

    Determined to get back on her feet, whatever it takes, she ends up finding an opportunity in a very traditional place. The classifieds section:

    .

    The Bartholomew is one of the most prestigious apartment buildings in New York City and Jules cannot believe they actually want to interview her for the appointment.

    Upon seeing the apartment, she absolutely cannot believe her luck. Pristine living quarters, breathtaking views and a handsome next-door neighbor.

    $12,000 to live in the apartment for 3-months. Other requirements? Really none besides the fact that she isn't allowed any visitors, she cannot spend a night away and she absolutely cannot hassle the other tenants.

    Her best friend, Chloe, tries to warn her off. If it seems too good to be true it probably is but as Jules sees it, what option does she have?

    So, she moves in.

    Guys, I freaking loved this book so much! I cannot even describe to you how much fun this was for me to read. It basically has everything I love.

    Sager's writing draws you in and the atmosphere is always intense. The setting of the Bartholomew was absolutely brilliant. The history surrounding the building, the other tenants, the odd rules; so compelling.

    There were scenes, reading late into the night, when I was legit terrified. Without giving anything away, let's just say I have never been so fearful of something as unimposing as a dumbwaiter.

    Ultimately, the plot went in a direction I never would have predicted and it is bizarre and so flipping good. This had a real film noir quality to it and I think Hitchcock would be impressed.

    This was my

    and it did not disappoint for a moment. I loved every minute of reading this and will pick up anything Sager ever chooses to have published!

    Thank you

    , PENGUIN GROUP Dutton, for providing me with a copy to read and review. I cannot even express my level of gratitude.

    and

    , we have a lovable heroine trying to get out of the jam of a lifetime. You will be rooting Jules on as she tries like crazy to figure out what thaaaaaa hellllll is going on. First thing in the story, she answers a Craigslist ad to work as an apartment sitter in the exclusive Bartholemew building right across from Central Park in NYC. She is to be paid $1000 per week to live in this gorgeous Gothic building. Just as long as she follows a few simple rules.

    . The rules are a bit strict, but our Jules is desperate for moolah and feels she’s got nothin to lose. Sooooooo…..Oh, boy.

    She should’ve paid attention to those rules! Just like a roach motel, those who enter The Bartholomew never leave The Bartholomew.

    The premise reminds me of

    , but Sager has a style all his own. He manages to keep the tone light and fun, almost Scooby doo-like, with all the “kids” out to solve a crime in their Mystery Machine Van. I really enjoy this aspect!

    It is a creepy and addictive read. As usual, Sager approaches the “over-the-top” believability factor, but, for some reason, with Sager, you just let it slide. It is so much more fun just to go along with him! I love the NYC setting and the characters to root for. Of course, a satisfying ending for us! All in all, a fantastic beach read!

    Mr. "Sager" has done it again folks. I'm always wary picking up the forecasted blockbusters of the year, but I'll be darned if this isn't his best novel to date, which is saying a lot as I adored

    .

    feels like the author's signature style, but each of his books has a different vibe, in my opinion.

    was horrific slasher,

    was a campy YA, and

    has a grown up, classic chiller feel, with an updated twist on the locked room trope, which is one of my personal favorite plots. Obviously I had high hopes for this book; with a cover that stunning how could you not?

    I'm so pleased that I found this to be another winner from the author, and I cannot wait for you to read it as well, friends.

    I'm not going to give a ton of info about the plot here (tsk tsk), because you want to be surprised, but I will say that I loved the storytelling format used in this book. I'm always game for a countdown, and from the very first page we get a snippet of NOW, followed by a travel backwards in time to a week prior, and from there we are mostly catching back up to the NOW, with a few present tense moments sprinkled between days. This gives the book a growing sense of dread, and what starts as a slow burn quickly turns into a manic frenzy of page turning.

    This is a plot about missing girls, about status, and about where that privilege can take you. Aside from being a compulsive mystery, and one that I didn't have all figured out before the reveal (happy dance!),

    spends a good bit of time investigating grief, loneliness, and how easily we judge those who appear, at first glance, to be a burden on society. I'll stop there, but I really enjoyed and appreciated how the author handled these timely topics and took this story deeper than just an average, pulse-pounding thriller.

    Eek, I want to say more, but to do so would make me such a bad friend. Do yourself a favor-go in blind, hang on to your butts, and let Sager take you on another devilishly fun thrill ride. If you missed the chance at snagging an early copy via the publisher, please mark this on your summer TBR for July. Purchase it, borrow it from the library, whatever you have to do, just do it!

    Rules, Rules, Rules- YOU MUST OBEY THE RULES. They are simple rules really - do not disturb the other residents at the Bartholomew, no overnight visitors and you must spend every night in your apartment. With added questions thrown in about drinking, smoking, family, etc.

    Reeling from a recent breakup, Jules has been sleeping on her best friend’s couch, when she sees the ad for an apartment sitter on Craigslist, she applies for the job. After answering some background questions, she is hired as and can't believe her luck, getting paid a lot of money to live in such a beautiful and grand building. She shrugs off her best friends doubts and concerns and moves and makes friends with another apartment sitter named Ingrid. Who cares about the building’s creepy history, money is money, right? But soon Jules begins to hear strange noises at night and Ingrid alludes to the fact that the Bartholomew may not be what it seems...and then Ingrid goes missing. Ever hear the adage "If it seems too good to be true, it usually is." My first thought was why would a building which houses celebrities and wealthy people advertise on craigslist and not some ritzy house-sitting company????? Hmm…. now I know! While searching for her missing friend, Jules begins to learn more about the Bartholomew and its dark history.

    I was fully engaged in this book and found it to have moments of dread and suspense. He piqued my curiosity right away and held it for most of the book. This became a real page turner for me. I had several theories and guesses about what was going to happen and I did not see that ending coming. I'll be honest, the ending was a little bit of a letdown for me. Having said that, I still found this to be a fast read which sucked me in and kept my attention.

    About this book. Yeah, well, it’s great. I have a very good overall opinion about it and I am very happy that I had the opportunity to read it earlier as planned.

    I had high hopes for this one, and it doesn't live up to my expectation. I'm not saying that it was a bad book, but it isn't a 5 stars read like his other book (

    ). I still like it.

    ... an old apartment where strange things start to happen.

    No visitors. Too strict rules. People have gone missing. It is a nightmare.

    ... an old apartment where strange things start to happen.

    No visitors. Too strict rules. People have gone missing. It is a nightmare.

    Jules Larsen's new job is in here. She will be an apartment sitter. What will happen to her? Nobody knows.

    Lock Every Door is a slow-paced novel. I adored the slow build-up situation because it gave me enough tension and I couldn't put it down.

    My favorite impression of the book was the old apartment atmosphere. It was intense and creepy. I felt like I was there but I don't want to be there, in a spooky, old house.

    I admire the two-time line idea. It was so good when the two lines meet and things turn out.

    All of the characters were fucked up. In the first half of the book, I knew who the "villain" is. It wasn't a surprise to me, but I didn't know what was going to happen.

    I'm relieved because Sager does not choose that plot twist. If you have read it, you know what I mean.

    So, the final solution was excellent! It is so disturbing for me. I can read a book about gory or gruesome parts without me feeling sick, but there is one thing that makes me uncomfortable.

    The writing style was captivating. Riley Sager is a brilliant thriller expert. He knows how to maintain stress.

    I don't connect to the main protagonist Jules. She was so dumb sometimes and I don't really understand what her motive was. Why does she do stupid things? Okay, she was broke. In my opinion, money is not as important as her life. I hate this cliché when the character sacrifices his/her life because they don't have enough cash. WTF? Why is it better? She will be dead, and that's all about her money. Soooo sooo feeble-minded.

    There was some occasion that were hard to believe or just superficial.

    Overall, it will be a divisive novel because it is slow, and the twist won't work for everyone.

    I gave it 4 stars. I like the gothic mood, and I couldn't put it down. It was a great page-turner.

    I don't think it was a horror. I didn't feel any fear.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    is about a girl name Jules, who wakes up in a hospital after being hit by a car. She is twenty-five, recently single, and very much struggling with money. But then she gets an opportunity to apartment sit in a very rich and exclusive complex in Manhattan.

    is about a girl name Jules, who wakes up in a hospital after being hit by a car. She is twenty-five, recently single, and very much struggling with money. But then she gets an opportunity to apartment sit in a very rich and exclusive complex in Manhattan.

    All of the floors in the apartment complex have four units, except for the twelfth floor, which only has two, and one of those units happen to be the one that needs apartment sitting. Basically, our main character, Jules, will earn 4,000 a month, for three months, but no one is allowed in the apartment besides herself, and she is also expected to not get close to any of the other tenants, since they are mostly high profile celebrities who value their privacy.

    Jules accepts, without question, even though the secrecy does give her a strange vibe. The new endeavor also takes a strange twist when the author of the book that she and her sister (who has been missing for almost a decade) obsessed over,

    , lives in the apartment complex. But Jules quickly befriends a couple other apartment sitters, who seem to know more information about this too good to be true offer they have all accepted.

    You quickly meet many of the residents of this apartment, but when one goes missing, you will start to question it all, right along side Jules. And my favorite part of this story, was getting to know all of the players in this game and trying to piece together their probable motives. And honestly? I really loved reading the twists and turns, right up until the very end, sadly.

    I didn’t like the end of this book, which I feel like is a

    unpopular opinion. I just feel like it took a lot of inspiration from a

    famous, award winning movie. I can’t tell you which movie, without completely spoiling the twist, but it was just too apparent for my liking and honestly just really ruined the ending for me.

    Overall, this was a fun reading experience for the most part. This was my second book by the author, and I feel like he has a very captivating writing style that not only keeps you on your toes with guessing, but makes it almost impossible to not read his book in one sitting, because you never want to put it down.

    An apartment sitting job with a very generous salary seems to good to be true for our main character. Mysterious residents, creepy wallpaper and disappearances...

    Personally I felt like the way the main character was piecing things together was pretty unbelievable and left me unsatisfied. It had potential but the ending will be a hit or miss depending on your taste.

    (2.5?) Can't really recommend.

    I tried to dive in and be entertained, but my inner critic would not shut up. I was rolling my eyes so much that it hurt! So much does not add up and I was ready for Jules to die so I wouldn’t have to continue reading about her stupid choices.
