An Unwanted Guest (Book)
Publicado el September 28, 2020
Last year browsing books at Librería Internacional, one that was being compared to the ones from Agatha Christie caught my eye. Those were big words, so I had to buy it: "An Unwanted Guest" by Shari Lapena.
<< A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway... but when the storm hits, no one is getting away.
It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery.
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 and try to make the best of it.
Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic.
Within 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. >>
To be honest, it is dificult to compare a book with the ones written by Agatha Christie. What I can say is that I liked it that much that I almost read it in one sitting. Highly recommended if you like mystery books.
