Waiting on Wednesday - An Unwanted Guest



I'm posting a 'soon to be released' book on Wednesdays.  These will always be books that I am particularly looking forward to.  I'll be linking up to 'Can't-Wait Wednesday' hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and plan to take part in this each week.

I've read this author's first book, The Couple Next Door, and liked it.  I have not read her second as yet, but I plan to and I'm waiting on her third.  I like the winter setting and the 'locked room' vibe.  This week, I'm waiting on:




Publication Date:  August 7th

t'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 for the long haul.

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.

  1. This sounds rather chilling. I remember a murder mystery somewhat like this that I watched ages ago on PBS with the family when I was little and it stuck with me forever. I hope you love it!

    1. Yes, one of my favorite types of mystery themes is the 'locked room', where the sleuth has to figure out what looks like an impossible situation.

    1. Exactly! And the 'locked room' feeling. Cold books in summer.

    1. Yes, I think the UK cover is (as usual) different. I think this one is better.

    1. Yes, I understand what you're saying. I did like The Couple Next Door, but there were not very many likable characters in it.

  12. I almost didn't want to look at yours because I knew it was going to be a book I needed to add to my TBR and of course it is! This looks like a page turner!

    1. This is her 3rd book, I think. It does sound good doesn't it?

  14. Ooh, I hope this one is as good as it sounds! The ideal setting for a murder mystery...

    1. I agree about the ideal setting.

  15. Awesome! I'd not heard of this one, but it's going on my wishlist asap.

    I have relatives who live in the Catskills and we went to their house a couple of weeks every year, summer and winter.

    I like when the weather or climate plays a big role in a suspense, so yes, this sounds like fun!

    1. The Catskills always makes me think of Dirty Dancing. Ha! This might be more intense and less dancing. LOL

  16. Ahh, this sounds creepy! Such a pretty setting, but then these murders, and knowing it has to be someone already there??

    1. Might try this one first, Iliana. The Couple Next Door is a domestic thriller. This one sounds a little different.

  21. I like a lot of these stranded in the snow books if there is decent action and tension in it. Sounds intriguing!
