The Wrong Move by Jennifer Savin – Book Review



When Jessie moves into a flatshare at Maver Place, she’s finally found a decent place to live.

And when she’s befriended by fellow tenants Lauren and Sofie, she’s got great flatmates to share it with.

You think she’s safe. You think she can trust these people.

You’re wrong.

When you flatshare, how well do you really know the people that you’re living with?

The Wrong Move is a dark, twisty domestic thriller following Jessie, who moves into a new flatshare in Brighton with three other flatmates. She thinks she’s found the perfect place to live – but when she learns that a previous flatmate has disappeared in suspicious circumstances, she starts to doubt if she can really trust these strangers after all.



Set in Brighton, Jessie is looking for a new flat share after ending an abusive relationship. After many viewings she finds the perfect place to live. Her flat mates are friendly, some more than others. 

Lauren is super friendly and welcoming, helping a Jessie to settle in, Sofie is in a relationship with the ego that is Henry and is rarely at home and Marcus is quiet and a bit of a loner, but friendly and helpful,

For the first couple of months everything is fine and settled but then Jessie’s anxiety ramps up due to odd little incidents……what happened to the previous occupant of her room, Magda? 

Who can she really trust? 

I really enjoyed The Wrong Move, it has a creeping, subtle tension which is enhanced by the clever writing, the way the perspective of the narrative changes between the characters, sometimes within the same paragraph really added to the weird sense of unease.

An unsettling, gripping and thoroughly entertaining read.

Thank you to Anne Cater and Random Things Tours for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour,  for the promotional materials and a free copy of the book. This is my honest, unbiased review.
