You know the formula: Put a bunch of couples in a beautiful country bed and breakfast, but then add a snowstorm, subtract the power, and kill someone. Yet Shari Lapena executes it flawlessly, building the tension steadily as we learn more about each of the guests, and the storm increases intensity. Is it someone already present at the inn? Or is there an intruder that no one knows about yet? Who is next? An homage to the great mystery writers of the past, An Unwanted Guest will keep you entertained and on the edge of your seat until the killer is finally revealed.
