I have read all of K L Slater’s previous novels and have thoroughly enjoyed all of them. The Apartment was no different. Another great read from a talented author.
This has an original theme which was refreshing. Freya Miller has been left without a husband trying to bring up her five-year-old daughter, Skye, in London. A chance meeting with Dr. Marsden in a café leads her to rent what appears to be a ‘too good to be true’ apartment in Kensington.
Adder House is beautiful but Freya soon becomes worried about things happening which seem strange and unusual as well as the ‘Marsden’s’, who live on the ground floor, paying for too much and interfering in her life.
The story is told mainly by Freya as she faces each challenge and she backtracks to give a picture of what happened between her and her husband. Interspersed with this is a journal form 1902 concerning experimentation with a young boy. The vivid connection is made at the end.
A great read and highly recommended. Thanks to NetGalley, Amazon Publishiing UK and KL Slater for the ARC in return for my honest review.
