Then Jules meets Ingrid, a neighbor she becomes friendly with, who tells her the dark history of the Bartholomew. At first she tells herself she didn’t believe in ghost stories, but when Ingrid goes missing the next night, Jules is determined to find out what happened to Ingrid and rescue her.  Lock Every Door is a page turner you’re not going to want to put down until the last page.
