Multiple timelines that converge at the end. A little predictable. Still enjoyable.

To be fair... I was hopped up on one (or a few) too many mojitos when I started this, so it was a comedy of errors trying to keep all of the players straight. Objectively a good mystery. Just one I would surely have enjoyed more sober 😂 3.5⭐️

I got a little sunburned yesterday so I'm enjoying my last morning in Mexico from this shady, breezy spot with a book and a mimosa. Life is good.

Woke up to the first snowfall of the year, and pulled out my eggnog spiced coffee beans. Drank my festive coffee while finishing a snowy thriller, The Overnight Guest. I ripped through it in less than 2 days. So. Freaking. Good.

LiteraryinLawrence What a perfect cozy morning! 3w

ShyBookOwl @Bookwormjillk I'm torn. It IS beautiful, but it also means winter is here... freezing weather, bad roads, short days, flu season... sigh. But there's no denying it looks magical through a window, as long as I'm nice and warm inside lol 3w

I took myself on a date to the bigger library (and then out for pad Thai) to pick out some October reads… and now I‘m struggling to decide which to pick next 🤷‍♀️

Bookzombie Sounds like a great date! 1mo

Not a fan. For as brutal a crime as this was, it should not have been boring at all. Yet when I put it down for a few days and then picked it back up I literally had to remind myself what was going on. And now that I've finished it, it's almost like it left a bad taste in my mouth and made me question why I even read thrillers to begin with. Because there was absolutely nothing worthwhile that I felt I could take away from this. 🤷

Finished this yesterday. The premise was good but the dialogue was frustrating. I think it would have worked better in print than audio.

This was a quick fun read that I think I enjoyed mostly because I read it all at once. It reads like you‘re watching a movie. There‘s not a lot of character development,but the story definitely keeps moving and while I guessed part of the ending there were still surprises.

tracey38 I enjoyed this one as well. 5mo

At first the multiple story lines frustrated me, I felt more drawn to the year 2000 series of events and wanted to know what happened. Sticking with the multiple story lines pays off in the end though, I liked how this book all came together.

Breanne1 Thinking about this book more today and there are some plot points that remain unanswered at the end…if you‘re like me and can enjoy a book even if there are unanswered questions then dive in 😊 6mo

This was a really solid thriller! I went back and forth between the audiobook and the paperback and I found I really enjoyed the audiobook narrator. So good at keeping the tension building! I was able to guess a few of the twists but I was way off with the main surprise. I‘m definitely excited to read more by the author! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Hits all the right buttons as a popcorn thriller. Told in plain, serviceable prose that's all about the plot, which I think the author handled deftly with multiple different timelines & POVs. The narrative moves back & forth & culminates in a satisfying ending in terms of not being an illogical, bananas big reveal. The first half was creepy enough that I sat up one night while reading before bed & turned on all the lights. Not my finest moment 😂

DivineDiana Turned on all the lights! Now that‘s a great recommendation! 👏🏻😊📚 8mo

rubyslippersreads Sounds great! Sometimes a good popcorn thriller is just what you need. 🍿😬 8mo
batsy @LeahBergen Thank you! 💜 8mo
batsy @rubyslippersreads Oh, yes! 🍿 I love thrillers/mysteries as a palate cleanser but with the former there seems to be more and more of a push towards ludicrous twists. And a bad ending can ruin the whole thing. 8mo
TLC49steps Sold! After your wickedly written description; 👌🤭will be adding to the spooky 👻 stack. Try reading Communion by Whitley Strieber; a different context altogether, however this takes creepy to another level - therefore I would weight for the energy bills to drop first!💡💡💡😂 8mo
batsy @TLC49steps Hahaha! Thanks for the rec; though it is quite different from what I usually read 😁 8mo

This is a very atmospheric story, told in two timelines which are full of suspense and tension. Snowed in tales are often creepy and thrilling and this one has that in spades. Couldn‘t put it down.

This is a solid mystery suspense. Even though the revelations are easy to figure out, I was still invested in the story enough to want to find out what happens in the end. I do wish this book comes with a trigger warning. There are quite a few dark scenes in the story and it made me sick to my stomach as I read them.

I'm not sure what it is about her books but I seem to really like them…even when others don‘t. There are multiple POVs and at least a couple of timeframes and admittedly, I was a tad lost in the beginning but it didn‘t last. I had each of the 3 POVs sorted out fairly quickly. This is definitely hard-hitting, dark, and probably has a slew of triggers but all these elements are what drew me in and had me totally hooked. I highly recommend it.

A remote farmhouse, a snow storm, an overnight guest, a mother and daughter imprisoned in a basement, a kidnapping of a young girl, and a murder

How are they all connected?

Gudenkauf‘s latest novel, set in rural Iowa is compelling and hard to put down! It blends together three narratives- the present with true crime writer Wylie, another present from an unnamed girl‘s perspective and a 2000 storyline of the crime that rocked the whole county. While some parts are more expected than others, the extreme Midwest weather provides additional excitement to the story! I can‘t wait to see what she writes next!

Wow, this pulled me in right away and I wanted to keep reading! Unfortunately, for me, I was reading before bed (twice) and especially the first night, I had a hard time getting to sleep! (Which, really, in a thriller or horror book, is a good thing!). All three storylines were appealing to me, and the author brought them together very well.

Delightfully ominous and unputdownable. I loved this darkly atmospheric story about secrets and murder set in a remote wintery location. Look for it Jan 25/22 from Park Row Books.
