An Unwanted Guest

A remote lodge in upstate New York is the perfect 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 wood--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'...

    4 Stars.

    A good old fashioned “Whodunit” Set in the Catskill Mountains, during a bitter cold, stormy weekend when the guests at an Inn get snowed in during a power outage. This is one mystery / suspense that is not to be missed!

    Ten guests arrive for the weekend, and one by one, they drop like flies. Are the guests’ deaths an accident or are they being been murdered? The roads are closed because of the snow and since the Inn has no power, no one can call the police. Everyone is frightened and susp

    Mitchell's Inn is a quiet resort, tucked away in the Catskill Mountains. Guests are checking in, but will they all check out?

    The hotel is three stories with a grand staircase, reminiscent of Gone with the Wind.  A forest surrounds the hotel and it has a grand lawn which is all covered in pure white snow. This should be the perfect setting for a quiet, relaxing weekend, but it will not be .

    The hotel isn't full. Six rooms will be occupied out of the twelve available. Some folks seem to have can

    What is better than a weekend getaway, traveling to a quaint remote hotel that promises the very best in accommodations? People are looking forward to wonderful food and beverages, beautiful settings, an aura of romance perhaps, and never thinking at all that a murderer would also be one of the residents for the weekend.

    This is the premise of the book An Unwanted Guest. It is winter time and the weather, as it often is in the Catskill's, is becoming treacherous. The guests

    I read The Couple Next Door by the author some years ago and I loved the book. Also, this book's blurb about strangers being trapped in an inn without having a chance to get from the place, with a murderer? I was sold!

    My only regret with this book is that I wanted to read the book in the middle of the winter, hopefully with a blizzard outside. Instead, I I read it in the middle of one of the hottest summer ever. Not that the outside climate affects the story of the book. It was just that I wa

    Two years ago, I read Shari Lapena’s debut – The Couple Next Door – and although I thought it was somewhat thrilling, it didn’t make enough sense to me to consider it a realistic mystery novel.

    I passed on her 2017 book – A Stranger in the House – just because it seemed like the sort of story that’s been written a hundred times in the past. But I couldn’t skip An Unwanted Guest too.

    No, I couldn’t. Because if there’s one thing I love, it’s mystery combined with survival, and this one sure deliver

    "Hell isn't imaginary; it's real. It's a real place and also a state of mind."

    A holiday turns to a bloody nightmare, when 10 people become trapped inside a remote inn during a snowstorm. With no electricity and telephone connection, the level of panic and desperation increases.

    Then, the guests turn up dead one by one.

    There is no apparent connection between the guests, but all have secrets of their own they would rather stayed hidden.

    Who is the murderer? Is he one of the guests? What about the o

    I loved Shari Lapena's previous books "The Couple Next Door" and "A Stranger In The House" and couldn't wait to start reading this, her latest thriller "An Unwanted Guest". It didn't disappoint and I have to admit that this one is actually my favourite of the three and in my opinion her best yet.

    The intriguing plot echoes an Agatha Christie style murder mystery and is set during a freezing cold and violent ice storm that leaves the guests at an isolated hotel stranded without power. As the guest

    As the guests arrive at the beautiful, remote Mitchell's Inn, they're looming forward to a relaxing weekend in the forest miles from anywhere.

    Its a mixed bunch of people who have booked into Mitchell's Inn for the weekend. It's miles from anywhere and set deep into the woods. There are ten guests plus the owner, James, and his son, Bradley. The guests arrive during a snow storm and it's not long before they are snowed in. The guests enjoy their first evening, but by the morning, one of them is
