An Unwanted Guest

Summary: A remote lodge in upstate New York is the perfect getaway. . . until the bodies start piling up.It’s winter in the Catskills and the weather outside is frightful. But Mitchell’s Inn is so delightful! The cozy lodge nestled deep in the woods is perfect for a relaxing–maybe even romantic–weekend away. The Inn boasts spacious old rooms with huge wood-burning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a book and someone you love. 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 for the long haul. The power’s down but they’ve got candles, blankets, and wood–a genuine rustic experience! Soon, though, a body turns up–surely an accident. When a second body appears, they start to panic. Then they find a third body. Within the snowed-in paradise, something–or someone–is picking off the guests one by one. They can’t leave, and with no cell service, there’s no prospect of getting the police in until the weather loosens its icy grip. The weekend getaway has turned deadly. For some couples, it’s their first time away. For others, it will be their last. And there’s nothing they can do about it but huddle down and hope they can survive the storm.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

This book cover kept catching my eye on the internet and then one day at Sam’s Club, it just threw itself into my cart 😉 *giggles*

I recently read and reviewed Someone We Know– my first Shari Lapena book- and I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book- but- LOVED it!

What I liked:

The cover. It gave me literary chills.

The setting of the book. Trapped because of a snowstorm and someone is picking them off one by one….. Yes, please!

The ending. I’ve really enjoyed both of the endings in the 2 Shari Lapena books I’ve read. She gives you a little something extra!


Bottom line: Shari, I think you are on the fast track to becoming an auto-buy author for me!
