The idea behind this book is what first drew me to this book. And while there were things I did like about it, overall I had a hard time with this book. One of the main things I had problem with was the pacing. It seemed to take forever to just get half way through the book. If the pacing had picked up a notch, things would have gone much better with this book. As it was, there was still an element of tension, seeing parallels between Emma and Jane’s chapters that kept things interesting.
One Folgate Street is designed by architect Edward Monkford, but there are multiple rules if you want to live there which is where things start to become suspicious. This book does take you on a ride, but there are multiple triggers that you need to be aware of before going in: rape, still birth, etc.
Apparently, J.P. Delaney is a pseudonym, and I am curious to know who was behind writing this book.
Overall, I think this was an okay book. I was just hoping for a bit faster pace and more tension.
