Synopsis from Goodreads:

Three couples rent a luxury cabin in the woods for a weekend getaway to die for in this chilling locked-room thriller by New York Times bestselling author Lisa Unger.

What could be more restful, more restorative, than a weekend getaway with family and friends? An isolated luxury cabin in the woods, complete with spectacular views, a hot tub and a personal chef. Hannah’s loving and generous tech-mogul brother found the listing online. The reviews are stellar. It’s his birthday gift to Hannah and includes their spouses and another couple. The six friends need this trip with good food, good company and lots of R & R, far from the chatter and pressures of modern life.

But the dreamy weekend is about to turn into a nightmare. A deadly storm is brewing. The rental host seems just a little too present. The personal chef reveals that their beautiful house has a spine-tingling history. And the friends have their own complicated past, with secrets that run blood deep. How well does Hannah know her brother, her own husband? Can she trust her best friend? And who is the new boyfriend, crashing their party? Meanwhile, someone is determined to ruin the weekend, looking to exact a payback for deeds long buried. Who is the stranger among them?

My Review

This suspense novel has all the ingredients for a story that can keep the reader up throughout the night.  The main character, Hannah, quickly realizes she can’t trust the people closest to her - her husband, her brother and even her best friend are keeping secrets.  All Hannah wants is to go home and be with her child, but things are never that easy.

It’s a dark, twisty story that keeps you at the edge-of-your seat.  It’s intense and filled with intrigue.  There are many twists and turns throughout the book.

At first I found it a bit confusing as there are a few different characters and each chapter is told from a different characters’ point of view.  As I continued to read, it all became clear and all the pieces started to fall into place.  I became addicted to the story and didn’t want to stop reading until I knew exactly what was going on.

I could easily see this book being made into a movie.  It’s a fascinating story and kept my interest until the very end. If you enjoy a book that keeps you thinking, I think you’d enjoy this one. It’s only my second Lisa Unger book, but it definitely won’t be my last.
