The Girl Upstairs by Georgina Lees

We’ve got a nice winter storm coming up, so I’m excited to be diving into my kindle this week!

Thank you One More Chapter for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: How well do you know your neighbor? Would you trust them with your life? I heard Emily before I saw her. The harsh smack of heels against cheap wooden floorboards. The loud phone calls. The incessant music. I knew Emily before I met her. Discarded receipts in our communal hallway. Sticky leftovers in the shared food waste bin. Wine shop vouchers in the letterbox. Now she’s gone missing, and I’m the only one who can find her. The only one who can save her. Because I know her best, and I heard everything.

I was hoping for an easy fast-paced read that keeps you on the edge of your seat, but this was not that. It’s slow, unrealistic, and has too quick of an ending for my liking. It doesn’t help that I have read so many thrillers in my past, because this just didn’t match up to them. It’s not terrible, but not something I would recommend others to read if they want a good thriller.

2/5 Stars
