This week my teaser comes from thriller, An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena which I received from NetGalley and read over the weekend. This was such a fantastic read. It’s that classic group of strangers trapped together with a killer on the loose story that I love. A little bit creepy, lots of tension and a few twists and turns to keep you guessing. Soooo good.
Hell isn’t imaginary; it’s real. It’s a real place and it’s also a state of mind. And she can feel herself slipping into the pit, she can feel the fear taking over, the paranoia, the need to react.
~ 69% 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.
