An Unwanted Guest By Shari Lapena

An Unwanted Guest By Shari Lapena

We can’t choose the strangers we meet.

As the guests arrive at beautiful, remote Mitchell’s Inn, they’re all looking forward to a relaxing weekend deep in the forest, miles from anywhere. They watch their fellow guests with interest, from a polite distance.

Usually we can avoid the people who make us nervous, make us afraid.

With a violent storm raging, the group finds itself completely cut off from the outside world. Nobody can get in – or out. And then the first body is found . . . and the horrifying truth comes to light. There’s a killer among them – and nowhere to run.

Until we find ourselves in a situation we can’t escape. Trapped.

My Thoughts:

A group of strangers with their own individual stories come to a hotel in the middle of nowhere, they get stuck because of the increasing snow storm and can’t call for help. Then dead bodies start appearing, it makes for a good plot line but I felt as though it wasn’t tense enough. The ending didn’t do really much for me. But I did like all the red herrings involving the guests and the hotel staff.

Why would you run scared from a happy home?

You’re waiting for your beloved husband to get home from work. You’re making dinner, looking forward to hearing about his day.

That’s the last thing you remember.

You wake up in hospital, with no idea how you got there. They tell you that you were in an accident; you lost control of your car whilst driving in a dangerous part of town.

The police suspect you were up to no good. But your husband refuses to believe it. Your best friend isn’t so sure. And even you don’t know what to believe . . .

My Thoughts:

Having read Shari’s previous novel The Couple next door I was excited to read this one. It has everything to keep you hooked, twists, turns and a creepy neighbour. Reading this book I honestly couldn’t of told you what would happen next. I felt anxious reading it as I just didn’t know how the ending was going to be played out. I found this book utterly compelling.

The Couple Next Door By Shari Lapena

The Couple Next Door By Shari Lapena

You never know what’s happening on the other side of the wall.

Your neighbour told you that she didn’t want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn’t stand her crying.

Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you only live next door. You’ll have the baby monitor and you’ll take it in turns to go back every half hour.

Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She’s gone.

You’ve never had to call the police before. But now they’re in your home, and who knows what they’ll find there.

What would you be capable of, when pushed past your limit?

My Thoughts:

I bought this book on my holiday and I am so glad I did. The story had me guessing till the end but when I got to the end I was in complete shock. There are a few red herrings which got me as I thought I had worked it out early on but I hadn’t. Very well written. A hard one to put down but one of my best reads this year. I will definitely be reading more of this author.
