BLOG TOUR: Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six - Lisa Unger

Three couples rent a luxury cabin in the woods for a weekend getaway to die for in this atmospheric and gripping 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? Especially in an isolated luxury cabin in the woods, complete with spectacular views, a hot tub and a personal chef. The reviews are stellar.

But a deadly storm is brewing. The owner seems just a little too present. The chef reveals that the beautiful house has a spine-tingling history. And the guests have their own complicated pasts, with secrets that run blood deep. The perfect weekend is about to turn into a nightmare.

What did I think?

You're always guaranteed a good read with a Lisa Unger book and Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six is no exception.  The ominous title alone is enough to send a little shiver down my spine but it ended up being the storyline that was more chilling than the location.

Hannah, her brother Mako and their friend Cricket, together with their partners, have planned a luxurious weekend getaway in the woods.  It wasn't so much the cabin as the owner that gave me the creeps, but that's not even the tip of the iceberg.  Every character has secrets and they're all about to be spilled, along with some blood.

Told from various perspectives, I wasn't sure who everyone was at first but it all becomes clear as the story progresses.  I really didn't like Mako from the start, just his name was enough to make my skin crawl, and my dislike of him grew with every single page.  There are so many people like him though, people who think they can do what they want and just throw money at every problem.  

I can't really say much about the storyline as it might spoil it for others but it's very intriguing and feels very realistic.  The writing is flawless, as you would expect from an international bestselling author, and although it wasn't perhaps as fast-paced as I expected, I really enjoyed it.

Suspenseful, chilling and atmospheric, Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six is set to be another bestseller for Lisa Unger.  I wouldn't be surprised to see this book made into a film or mini-series as it is filled with so much suspense and intrigue - it would certainly be added to my watchlist.

I received an ARC to read and review for the blog tour and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
