The House Guest

Although I’ve long been a fan of Hank and Karen Dionne’s popular The Back Room author interviews, this is the first book I’ve read by Hank. And what a ride! There is something to grab and hold your attention in each chapter. The plot is complicated but not so much that you can’t follow along. The main character does come across as a bit guileless, but essentially is a good person who sees another woman in a bad situation and makes an offer she might later regret.

As the book moves toward the end, you might think you’ve got the full story, but there’s more to come. At first the ending seemed to contradict some of the events that happened previously, but everything is explained. I loved that this book had different storyline than the types of thrillers I’m used to. This is one of those “stay up until you finish it reads”!

Thanks to NetGalley and Macmillan-Tor/Forge, Forge Books for an advance reader’s copy.
