The Overnight Guest

Summary: A woman receives an unexpected visitor during a deadly snowstorm in this chilling thriller from New York Times bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf

She thought she was alone

True crime writer Wylie Lark doesn’t mind being snowed in at the isolated farmhouse where she’s retreated to write her new book. A cozy fire, complete silence. It would be perfect, if not for the fact that decades earlier, at this very house, two people were murdered in cold blood and a girl disappeared without a trace.

As the storm worsens, Wylie finds herself trapped inside the house, haunted by the secrets contained within its walls—haunted by secrets of her own. Then she discovers a small child in the snow just outside. After bringing the child inside for warmth and safety, she begins to search for answers. But soon it becomes clear that the farmhouse isn’t as isolated as she thought, and someone is willing to do anything to find them.

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’ve read a few of Heather Gudenkauf’s books over the years. And I have liked each and every one that I have read ( Before She Was Found, This Is How I Lied, Not A Sound and Missing Pieces). But I think The Overnight Guest might be her most twisted.



What I Liked:

The cover is completely spooky and sets the scene perfectly.

How the book is laid out- the story is told in past, present and then one section you, as the reader, are not sure when that section is being told. It ups the tension to INCREDIBLE heights.

When all the pieces click together. I think I gasped out loud.


Bottom line: This book was def filled with tense scenes and it hooked me!
