The Resort by Sue Watson

I’m delighted to be part of the tour today for this thrilling book. Thanks so much to Bookouture for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.

Book Description:

When a dream trip becomes your worst nightmare…

You’ve been excited about this getaway for months – at last, a chance to reconnect with your husband at a secluded island resort. But when he unexpectedly calls you from the beach, you hear the urgency in his voice. Something is very wrong.

The beautiful waitress from the restaurant last night has been found lying dead in the sand. And the police want to question your husband about it.

Sure, you saw him glance at her over dinner a few times, but you know he didn’t have anything to do with the poor girl’s death. So why is he asking you to lie to the police that he was with you all night? And where did he go in those missing hours?

When he returns to your beautiful sea-view suite, things get heated and he accuses you of being jealous, just like he always does. Yes, the waitress was overly flirtatious with your husband, but you didn’t actually wish her any harm. Not really.

Can you trust the man you married… or are you the one who can’t be trusted?

A completely gripping, utterly twisted thriller that will have you turning the pages all night long! Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Hunting Party and The Girl on the Train.

My Review:

I’m already a big fan of Sue Watson’s thrilling novels, and this latest one is exceptionally good.

We meet three couples, and it’s very interesting to see how appearances can be deceptive. Almost everyone has a secret, or an issue, and the glitz and glamour all around can be an illusion.

Right from the start I was caught up in the action, and I had no idea who might have been responsible for the murder. It was very hard to trust any of the characters.

The beautiful surroundings are at odds with the events that are taking place there, and the sultry weather and the isolation of the resort all contribute to the sense of rising tension and suspense.

I just flew through the pages of this book, and when I wasn’t reading it, I couldn’t wait to get back to it. Pacy, thrilling and chilling, this book will have you completely addicted and you’ll find it impossible to put down. Superb.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.
