Don’t miss this twisty thriller that will keep you reading well past your bedtime. The Overnight Guest has three compelling narratives.
In August 2020, a husband and wife are murdered on a rural farm. Their twelve-year old daughter, Josie, was wounded but survived. Josie’s best friend, Becky, is missing along with Josie’s older brother, Ethan.
In the present, true crime author, Wylie, is finishing up her latest book in the house where the crime occurred. One night during a snowstorm, she finds a child in the snow outside the front door.
Finally, in a non-dated account, a young girl and her mother are held in a basement by a man the girl calls Dad. The girl doesn’t remember a time when she lived anywhere else.
I adore the many twists in this book! Some I saw coming but many, I did not. The book will resonate with me for days because of the realistic characters. The Overnight Guest is well worth your time due to its challenging and heartfelt plot. 4 stars!
Thanks to Park Row and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
