I love psychological thrillers, but this one didn't do it for me. The premise is ridiculous; Emma rents the house with at least 200 clauses of what the renter cannot do. The "House" will be watching what is happening and will shut down water and lights and reboot computers if the rules are not followed. "Housekeeper" will be watching every move. HUH? Big Brother?
No personal items allowed , no throw pillows, no pets, no pictures, no books, no clutter of any kind. But Emma is desperate and the rent is low because of the rules.
The story continues with the untimely death of Emma as Jane moves in. The chapters alternate between Emma and Jane as it tells the tale about the handsome, unsociable, mysterious owner who tries to control each of the women as he becomes their lover.
I couldn't wait to finish this book, however, it kept my interest enough to keep reading.
Thus three stars.
