💭 My Thoughts 💭
First up I want to say, for a debut novel this is an absolute corker. And, I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more offerings of Jennifer Savin’s books in the future.
Ok, so The Wrong Move is about Jessie. She’s just come out of an abusive relationship and wants to up sticks and start afresh. Get away from her old life and try and forget the past. Cue the hunt for a new flat, and the new flatmates.
I’ve flatshared before, but not with total strangers like Jessie is doing. So, I can kind of relate to a certain extent. Now, the synopsis clearly states Jessie’s flatmates aren’t all they seem. And, this is where the story really gets going. I love how Savin slowly drip feeds and drops hints about each character as the story develops. And, to make things more interesting and keep us guessing, the flatmates are all holding some kind of negative issues.
Lauren, she may come across as nice, friendly and welcoming but is she jealous? Is she all that she seems? Can anyone be that nice?
Marcus, he is the classic goth type, very secretive. From the get go Savin portrays him as a loner with strange noises coming from his room. Definitely someone to watch? Or is he?
Sofie, very mother earth, into all the good things in life. Loves nature, wouldn’t hurt a fly. But, does that mean she wouldn’t hurt a human?
Obviously, there’s the small matter of why the previous flatmate Magda just disappeared in the middle of the night. All these elements and strange goings on result in Jessie getting very paranoid.
The Wrong Move is your classic psychological thriller, so many avenues leading to you second guessing each character. A fantastic debut novel. Not to be missed.
