Can't Wait Wednesday-An Unwanted Guest


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at http://www.wishfulendings.com/ to spotlight and discuss books we're excited about but haven't read, which may not even be released yet. 

NB: I don't follow or leave comments on blogs run by Google Plus, or DISQUS as I refuse to join something just to leave comments, and I won't allow them to follow new people, update my profile or post tweets 'on my behalf'. I won't comment on any blog that makes me sign in using another account. 


A remote lodge in upstate New York is the perfect winter wonderland getaway . . . until the bodies start piling up.

It's winter in the Catskills and the weather outside is frightful, but Mitchell's Inn is so delightful! The cozy lodge nestled deep in the woods is perfect for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. The Inn boasts spacious old rooms with huge wood-burning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or just curling up with a book and someone you love.

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. The power's down but they've got candles, blankets and firewood--a genuine rustic experience! Soon, though, a body turns up--surely an accident. When a second body appears, they start to panic. Then they find a third body.

Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. They can't leave, and with no cell service, there's no prospect of getting the police in until the weather loosens its icy grip. The weekend getaway has turned deadly. For some couples, it's their first time away. For others, it will be their last. And there's nothing they can do about it but huddle in and hope they can survive the storm.

I've had a poor time over the years with thrillers but I am intending to branch out into the genre again and have a few good sounding ones on my ereader. I like the sound of the stranded by the blizzard plot and I'll probably pick this out when it comes out later this summer.

  1. I liked this author's last work, and have been wondering about this one myself -- I look forward to your review! I'm not exactly the biggest fan of a premise like this, so I am curious to see what you think of it.

    1. I've never tried the author but I like these stranded in a blizzard kind of things! I just hope it doesn't turn out too slow for me.

  2. I'll pick this one up because of the blizzard setting. I didn't really care for The Couple Next Door, but I'm willing to give this author another chance.

  3. Oh I love the cover on this one and the blizzard setting sounds so creepy and claustrophobic.

    1. I've seen mixed reviews of The Couple Next Door. This one intrigues me because of the weather element. I hope we both like it!
