The request seems odd, even intrusive – and for the two women who answer, the consequences are devastating.


Reeling from a traumatic break-in, Emma wants a new place to live. But none of the apartments she sees are affordable or feel safe. Until One Folgate Street. The house is an architectural masterpiece: a minimalist design of pale stone, plate glass, and soaring ceilings. But there are rules. The enigmatic architect who designed the house retains full control: no books, no throw pillows, no photos or clutter or personal effects of any kind. The space is intended to transform its occupant – and it does.


After a personal tragedy, Jane needs a fresh start. When she finds One Folgate Street, she is instantly drawn to the space – and to its aloof but seductive creator. Moving in, Jane soon learns about the untimely death of the home’s previous tenant, a woman similar to Jane in age and appearance. As Jane tries to untangle truth from lies, she unwittingly follows the same patterns, makes the same choices, crosses paths with the same people, and experiences the same terror as the girl before.

This book was Crazy! Its about 2 women, Emma and Jane, an odd architect, the crazy house he built and the many rules that come with it. Emma and Jane both look shockingly alike and that is the most normal thing about this whole book. Both women live in this house at different times and the story goes back and forth between the two. Strange things happen and things that you don’t think mean anything all come together to make perfect sense and fit together without really any holes. Jane is happy and thinks things are going well until she discovers Emma was murdered in this house. She can’t let it go and she has to find out what is really going on, but what will it cost her?

The Girl Before was a thrilling and exciting story with twists you won’t expect and even if you’re right you won’t be sure. The Girl Before is a Must Read!
