the house guest – hank phillippi ryan

My second from Hank, and another fab read. She’s a big hit in the US but definitely deserves to be better known this side of the Atlantic – she writes so well, and her plots give corkscrews a run for their money and no mistake! In The House Guest, the hitherto rich and privileged Alyssa finds her world falling apart when her husband suddenly leaves her, until a chance meeting with a stranger at a bar lifts her spirits. Within the hour she’s offering her a place to stay, but is this apparently agreeable woman really as innocuous as she seems?
