The Getaway

Summary: In this short thriller from number one New York Times best-selling authors Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, a young woman’s dream getaway becomes her worst nightmare.

Prepare yourself for a transformative experience. Sometimes, life’s setbacks contain hidden gifts. Here at Lakewood, you’ll find the space to unwrap them.

A weekend at the Lakewood Retreat is exactly what Chloe Powell needs. Freshly unemployed after her boss loses a reelection campaign, the former press secretary desperately wants a break from the bustle of Washington DC. A flier posted at her yoga studio leads her to the getaway, which looks amazing: organic meals, celebrity testimonials, and a serene private property within driving distance of the city.

It’s so perfect, in fact, that Chloe’s barely bothered by the intensely personal questions she’s asked in her application, or the unnerving social experiments her enigmatic host, Sebastian, imposes on her once she arrives at his remote cabin. But when a mysterious new guest shows up, Chloe can no longer suppress her rising panic: This place is not at all what it seems.

A pulse-pounding story from the first minute to the last, The Getaway explores the weight of the small choices we make every day, and their staggering, unintended consequences.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Impulse buy from Audible because I love this writing duo. Unfortunately, it fell semi-flat for me.


What I Liked:

The cover. It def had a creepy vibe.

The plot- I thought it was so GREAT sounding.


In the end- this book made me think of The Retreat and An Anonymous Girl. I don’t know if it was the length or what- it seemed that we had a good bit of a set-up and then things started happening really fast. And if I hadn’t read their other books and known how GREAT they were- I would have been ok with this. But it just missed the mark for me and was just ok.


Bottom line: I don’t regret buying it, but I won’t listen to it again or recommend it to others.
