Publisher's Summary

They planned a dream vacation. They got a trip to hell.

Maggie and Brad are on vacation at Lake Tahoe when they meet another couple, Skye and Joe. The four hit it off so well that Maggie invites their new friends to share her beautiful lakeside rental. What she doesn’t realize is Skye and Joe aren’t just some random couple. They have been watching Maggie and Brad and have chosen them carefully....

When they discover that Maggie has a secret that could destroy her marriage, they start turning the screws, pushing their own sinister agenda. But have they chosen their victim wisely? Or does Maggie also have a dark side? As the pressure builds, what should have been a dream vacation begins to look more like the inner circle of hell. Before it’s over all four will be changed forever - and at least one of them will be dead.

Wow

This story was so hard to put down. It felt like a fast traveling train ride. I was so glued to this story. I really like how all the characters interacted with each other. Thanks for a great read!

Loved the book

This was a sensational book. I was always wondering what was going to happen next. The only thing I was curious about was Skye's story. It seemed to trail off in a delusional fantasy. Did she get caught? and what happened to Maggie and the rest of the characters?

Neither suspenseful nor a thriller

So many good reviews. What am I missing? This book bored me to tears. Actually saying it board me to tears gives it too much credit. It was just… Boring. Definitely not suspenseful nor a thriller. It’s more a story about someone who goes overboard during a boat trip but 98% of the book is about the marital problems of the couples involved. Total waste of time

It was good, not great but I would recommend

It wasn’t an A+ but a strong B, if I had to grade it. A few of the characters were annoying but the story was very original & not predictable. With a credit.

WHAT ?????

I was really enjoying the story and was shocked with the ending. I wanted to give it a higher rating but the ending just ruined it for me. I almost regret using one of my credits.

Annoying Spineless Characters

NO SPOILERS! The book kept my interest but as the book progressed it decreased as it became completely ridiculous. I found myself yelling at the characters for their stupidity. It just lacked logic. The book had a lot of potential but fell flat halfway through.

Here for the long haul with Grant's characters!

I have no idea how Cathryn Grant does it, but somehow, she makes the lives of vacuous, materialistic, over-moneyed, self-absorbed, people not only interesting but so horrifyingly complex that I am pulled in right away and just waiting for the next disastrous twist and turn of their lives.
I’ve read many of her books and while the characters are plainly ‘of a type’ (and a type I’ve never met as they’re a particular sort of American), and she describes almost every detail of domestic life – albeit moderately glamorous – from squeezing lemons to how the glasses are arranged on the table, every bit of it builds a picture that leads to an ending I have almost (never?) seen coming.
I’m reading The Guest at the moment, and I can imagine saying the exact same thing about that; twists and turns the depend on our understanding of the values and concerns of people you might never want to spend time with but that are nevertheless fascinating.
I hope Grant keeps on writing these characters because I’m here for the long haul.
