The House Guest

We rated this book:


After her wealthy husband suddenly left her, Alyssa Macallan was drowning her sorrows in a hotel bar. She picked the spot specifically because no one in her social circles would ever set foot in a place like that. But just when she needed a friend most, one appeared. Seeming to also have problems she wanted to escape from, Bree Lorrance graciously accepted Alyssa’s offer to stay in her guest house. Alyssa and Bree confided in each other, but the addition of a possible inheritance for Bree and an FBI investigation for Alyssa turned everything upside down, leaving Alyssa not knowing who she can trust.

Full of twists and turns, this is a real page turner! Very rarely do I find a story that I can’t predict where it’s going, but this one really kept me guessing. A well-written mystery with just enough suspense to keep you glued to the pages and just enough character information to suspect everyone. Toward the end it did get a bit confusing, but don’t worry, everything is clarified in the end. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys mysteries!
