The perfect life? …Or the perfect lie?
When Regi moves into her new house share, she’s ready for a clean slate. A new home. A new routine. A new identity…
Desperate to escape the shadow of her past that follows her everywhere she goes, Regi finds the ideal distraction in the perfect lives of others on social media.
But as innocent scrolling turns into an unhealthy obsession, Regi will soon learn that seeking perfection comes at a price…
A gripping psychological suspense from the international bestselling author of The Daughter In Law. Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, K L Slater and Jackie Kabler.
The House Mate is my first from Nina Manning. I think this was really well written. We follow Regi, a woman who suffers from OCD.
I think the author took a realistic look at someone with OCD. Regi has trouble having meaningful relationships because she is consumed with her OCD routines and anxiety.
I relate to Regi, and I think she is a really well written character. As the story unfolds, Regi begins to make sense of her life and I was really invested in her story.
I really liked this and would recommend giving it a shot.
