Today, I'll be discussing the fan favorite, 2018 thriller, An Unwanted Guest.
An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena
A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway, but when a snowstorm hits, no one is able to get away...
It's winter at Mitchell's Inn. The cozy cabin, nestled deep in the woods, features spacious old rooms with antique wood burning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery.
But when the weather takes a turn for the worst, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity and all contact with the outside world, the guests try to make the best of it.
That is, until one person turns up murdered... and then another... and then another...
Lapena's 2018 novel is one of the best classic mysteries of the year.
An Unwanted Guest features a binge-worthy storyline, on-the-edge of your seat suspense, and MAJOR Agatha Christie vibes.
The novel takes place at an isolated lodge in the middle of the woods. Here, at Mitchell's Inn, guests and staff are forced to join forces when one of them is found dead. But soon, bodies start to pile up, and suddenly, it's evident that someone in the group is the killer.
An Unwanted Guest is a brilliantly written book. The story is filled with crime, mystery, suspense, and features an immensely captivating cast of characters. As a matter of fact, in this case, the answer to the mystery lies within the characters themselves.
The guests, which find themselves face-to-face with a killer, all have secrets they're desperate to keep hidden. One of those secrets is the key to solving these heinous crimes, but one person at the lodge will do anything to make sure their secret stays buried...
