No visitors. No nights spent away from the apartment. No disturbing the other residents, all of whom are rich or famous or both. These are the only rules for Jules Larsen’s new job as an apartment sitter at the Bartholomew, one of Manhattan’s most high-profile and mysterious buildings. Recently heartbroken and just plain broke, Jules is taken in by the splendor of her surroundings and accepts the terms, ready to leave her past life behind.
As she gets to know the residents and staff of the Bartholomew, Jules finds herself drawn to fellow apartment sitter Ingrid, who comfortingly, disturbingly reminds her of the sister she lost eight years ago. When Ingrid confides that the Bartholomew is not what it seems and the dark history hidden beneath its gleaming facade is starting to frighten her, Jules brushes it off as a harmless ghost story . . . until the next day, when Ingrid disappears.
Searching for the truth about Ingrid’s disappearance, Jules digs deeper into the Bartholomew’s dark past and into the secrets kept within its walls. Her discovery that Ingrid is not the first apartment sitter to go missing at the Bartholomew pits Jules against the clock as she races to unmask a killer, expose the building’s hidden past, and escape the Bartholomew before her temporary status becomes permanent.
My passion has always been reading. From a young age I found true joy in diving into literature and discussing books with anyone who'd listen; and I haven't stopped since. After acquiring quite a collection of signed books from my favorite authors, meeting new people through book clubs, signings and making lifetime friends (both fiction and non-fiction), I have started my own blog, Hi'D's Book Hub!
When not reading, you can find me out with my husband and friends, venturing to explore new restaurants, and tasting wines from around the world! I married her high school sweetheart and we have three grown children. We recently have become empty nesters as our last baby has gone off to college. In addition to being a bookworm, I love listening to music, going to concerts, and attending Phoenix Coyotes hockey games. I am likely Madonna's number 1 fan and have the tattoo to prove it! My bet is that you'll be hooked by my recommendations with your first visit here. You'll return again and again, not just for the latest & greatest reviews, but because you'll also want to be best friends!
This is a reader and blogger group for Hi'D's Book Hub!! Here we can talk about our love of books! I will be posting about my favorite books and authors and I encourge you all to do the same!! PLEASE keep in mind my only rule is that we keep this a positive place for every reader, blogger and author!
In this group I will be posting about upcoming book events as well as new book releases and upcoming Authors!!
I will also be hosting takeovers, having authors popping in and out occasionally and monthly giveaways...so keep an eye out for all of that!
"Born to read....Forced to work!!"
