The Roommate

Book: The Roommate
Series: Cormac Reilly #0.7
Author: Dervla McTiernan

Twenty-two year old Niamh Turley thought she had problems, dealing with the obnoxious principal of the school she’s teaching in as well as the anxious parents of her little charges, but when she wakes one morning to a missing roommate and a garda knocking on her door, her life spirals out of control fast…-Goodreads


“’Did you ask for any references for Maya or a bank statement or anything?’ Mary asked.

Niamh blinked. ‘No’, she said. ‘Do people do that in Dublin? I suppose the fact that Maya was introduced through a friend of a friend meant that I just took everything on trust.’” 

This was a short story that reminded me a lot of the movie Single White Female. I'm not familiar with the Cormac Reilly series but I liked McTiernan's writing. This was a little too short to sink my teeth into but I liked it. 

Grade: 3/5
