Book Review 

The Overnight Guest by Heather Gudenkauf I thought it was a perfect book to use to curl up in this wonderful seat of mine and get cozy and read during a blizzard we had a historic blizzard historic 

I think we had a lot of snow about a month and a half ago so i thought let's pick up this book and see what this mystery thriller suspense kind of story is all about 

I was pretty cozy for the first three pages and then I got eerie I mean I was unprepared for how eerie and atmospheric this story was going to be and let me just read you a very short kind of excerpt from it 

I mean it's like a paragraph it's uh it's not going to spoil anything I just want to kind of give you a bit of an idea of what I'm talking about 

So it starts out several inches of snow had already fallen and now all of the things it was sleeting transforming the yard into an ice rink another flash of uneasiness went through widely heavy ice or snow on the power lines were sure to lead to their collapse and an outage and complete darkness 

She wanted to find tasks and get inside using the porch rail to steady herself and the beam from the flashlight to guide her wildly eased along calling out to him she squinted through 

The dark and aimed the flashlight towards the lane that led to the road two eerie red orbs flashed back at her, yes you come here she ordered he lowered his head ignoring her commands this is only a glimpse 

I mean it gets so much more atmospheric and eerie but of course, I don't want to give too much away because I want you to read this for yourself let's talk about the details so right from the start you're being thrown into this moody story 

It's it was the perfect backdrop for an upcoming snowstorm here for me and of course for the story itself because it is partially set during an impending snowstorm 

It really brings together the isolation and the gruesome murder which is happening don't worry I'm not spoiling anything and of course the uh the investigation of what happened and it hooks the reader in it 

Really does and you want to know more because gutenkov is so good at creating a scene and leaving it and then going to the next chapter and just kind of leaving you suspenseful a little bit and just weaving that web of mystery and it was a very satisfying read because it's not to the point 

Where i'm like i'm too suspicious i don't really care i don't really i don't know i don't really want to read it no it's like there's something up with this with this character i want to know more and i'm starting to have hunches and i want to know if i'm right about those hunches or maybe not maybe there's a twist coming it's like oh my god i had no clue it's going to go this way 

So it really kept you on that edge and you didn't want to get up from your seat i didn't want to get out there because i needed to know um the protagonist was very closed off she was kind of standoffish and she just thinks too much 

We can hear her thoughts or we can read about her thoughts and some of the chapters that are about her and she misses opportunities and you really just sit there and go oh girl 

Why did you do that why don't over analyze just go for it that wasn't her style and I did not really like her but it didn't matter because this book was plot-driven and very well prop driven 

So if you like the character or not it didn't matter she did what she had to do in order to get the story going or continue to go and it worked very well yeah yes 

so and of course the plot it was fantastic it was a dual narrative spanning about 20 years so we have this horrific murder the investigation and then the events of a stormy winter's night and first all those seem kind of random stick with it 

It's all gonna make sense and it's just this yarn or these parts that don't really seem to make sense don't really seem to be connected but if you have a hunch stick with that hunch and just continue you will not be disappointed

It was incredibly atmospheric and eerie the isolation and the darkness and the protagonist's anxiety and just worked so well in that one part of the story that it kind of overarched all of it and really pulled you in and really set the mood and i like that I really appreciated it 

It was an extremely rich reading experience and as I'm saying it's like the writing it was just vivid it was uh it was intense and there were a few scenes 

I don't want to go into too much detail but there were brutally honest and the descriptions were so realistic author gutenkov just decided to say it 

How it is she wasn't she wasn't graphic but he clearly understood what was going on and at that point i had to take a quick breather because it was just like oh she did that and she did that very well not too much one sentence but you got the point the verdict it was a great read cover to cover 

I as i said i did not want to get up if i had been super glued to this chair i could not have been any happier because it was just what i needed what i wanted and i'm definitely going to look for forwarding to her next book 

Because it was that good and her other book this is how a lie was just as good and uh i think she's starting to at least for me have a reputation of being just a really good writer so yeah i definitely recommend it 

But that's enough for me of course i want you to read the book yourself let's keep this conversation going because two people can read the same story or same book but never the same story and let me know what you thought thanks for watching.
