An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena: a review

An Unwanted Guest is another great book by Shari Lapena! She may be the reason why I actually started reading thriller/suspense novels. I’ve read so many since reading The Couple Next Door

You are keep guessing through the whole book of who the unwanted guest may have been. You meet an old married couple who well just the wife are trying to keep their marriage together, an engaged couple, a couple who are dating, a lawyer on a weekend getaway, an author trying to write a novel, two best friends and the son and father who run the inn. There is a snow storm that strands everyone there and then things start to happen. 4 are dead and you have no idea who the killer may be. You think that there is someone extra there at the inn with them or at least you may be lead to think that.

Each time I thought I had it all figured out Shari Lapena throws a curve ball at you and leaves you to start over. Maybe you can figure it all out but I sure was startled to learn the truth because I wasn’t expecting it!

Like all other Lapena books you are left wanting more and trying to figure out what she has not concluded for you.

My one question was what was Gwen’s story? We never learned her story.

4 stars out of 5.
