I loved Shari Lapena's previous books The Couple Next Door and A Stranger In The House and couldn't wait to start reading this her latest thriller An Unwanted Guest It didn't disappoint and I have to admit that this one is actually my favourite of the three and in my opinion her best yetThe intriguing plot echoes an Agatha Christie style murder mystery and is set during a freezing cold and violent ice storm that leaves the guests at an isolated hotel stranded without power As the guests each with their own story or deep buried secret start to die in mysterious circumstances the terrifying suspense is instantly ratcheted up therefore making the book impossible to put down I really did find it gripping and since we are currently experiencing an uncomfortable heatwave this book certainly cools you down The descriptions of the ice and snow and freezing conditions in the hotel made me feel as if I was there with the guests and since the author brings her brilliant characters to life each one felt exceedingly real I like plots where you can try to guess the murderer in a realistic scenario and I have to admit I did get the killer wrong The ending was very well plotted and thought out and from start to finish I thoroughly enjoyed reading this compelling and suspenseful book I very much look forward to by Lapena in the future I like her writing style plot lines and her ability to engage the reader and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this page turner of a book to thriller readers young and old and especially those that love a good old fashioned whodunnit murder mystery 5 stars

An Unwanted GuestThe best of itSoon though one of the guests turns up dead it looks like an accident But when a second guest dies they start to panicWithin 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 and one another. Mitchell's Inn is a uiet resort tucked away in the Catskill Mountains Guests are checking in but will they all check out The hotel is three stories with a grand staircase reminiscent of Gone with the Wind  A forest surrounds the hotel and it has a grand lawn which is all covered in pure white snow This should be the perfect setting for a uiet relaxing weekend but it will not beThe hotel isn't full Six rooms will be occupied out of the twelve available Some folks seem to have cancelled due to the snow storm approaching We begin to meet some of the guests as they are checking in and learn why they wanted to book the weekend  There are uite a few characters and I had to get to know before I was able to keep everyone straight  Once I sorted them out I had no problem following the story line and I sure had some strong opinions about a few of them One I would liked to have smackedThe storm is getting worse everything is icing over there is no wi fi no electricity and the wind is howling like someone is trying to get in  I was starting to wonder if someone was After a body is discovered the next morning people are uick to start pointing fingers  Everyone's secrets start coming out and suspicions are spreading like fireA couple of gaspy moments and much guessing made this one a uick read  Some parts became a bit repetitive with the mystery circling around a few times but the ending put a smile on my face Recommend to readers who enjoy who dunnits with atmospheric settings  Thanks to the publisher and EW for my copy to review and give my honest opinion
