An Unwanted Guest


The twisty new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door and A Stranger in the House

A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway . . . but when the storm hits, no one is getting away

It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery.

So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in and try to make the best of it.

Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic.

Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive the storm--and one another.

geeesh, nicknames are hard.

Doug4 star

Well written. I liked it. Spoiler alert - how could you be at altitude, at a quaint hotel, during a vicious snowstorm, and an even more vicious ice storm and be so woefully unprepared. The writer must be a Southerner. I could maybe believe no backup generator but nobody would be that unprepared in that environment. Just a nagging thought that detracts from the story. Grumpy. Geeersh, nicknames are hard. 45

Surprise ending!4 star

I love this author and this book was a great read. I didn’t see the ending coming at all, but the whole of the book itself slightly felt like it was just a big description of the people and what they were doing. Very much a murder mystery, and each character had their own story. Overall was a great read! 45


Was expecting different3 star

I ended up listening to this book while cleaning. I read the author and figured it would be perfect but I honestly wasn’t pulled into this. It’s definitely a murder mystery but after reading her other two books I was expecting more. Still worth the read and all :) 35



Very great book, I really enjoyed the twist in it and the whole story and characters were very good indeed. 55
