The Girl Before by JP Delaney

About the Book

Reeling from a violent break-in, Emma wants a home where she feels safe.
Nowhere is quite right until the agent suggests One Folgate Street: ‘It’s not a
place that would suit everyone, the landlord is very particular...’ The house
is extraordinary, breathtaking but it comes with a set of rules enforced by
the enigmatic architect owner. Emma promises her boyfriend Simon that
everything will be different when they move in.

Jane is looking for a fresh start and the blank canvas of One Folgate Street
seems to offer just that. Not to mention that the architect Edward Monkton
is rather attractive. But once she moves in strange things begin to happen
and Emma’s past and Jane’s present become inexorably entwined.
