The House in the Pines is a deftly written thriller with a side of unique. As a teen, Maya watched her best friend die suddenly. Her friend was only talking to Maya’s boyfriend Frank and then suddenly died. Now, years later, Maya learns that another young woman has died while Frank was talking to her. Maya knows it can’t be a coincidence. She returns to her hometown to find Frank and discover what’s really going on. 

I wasn’t sure what to expect going into to this book, but it turned out to be an intriguing and entertaining suspense thriller. The concept seems like it should be a little outlandish, but author Ana Reyes makes it all work. This is a crackerjack debut novel and Reyes doesn’t pull any punches. The characters are interesting and the pacing moves along at a fast clip. I thought the twist was unusual and kind of unique. The ending was ambiguous enough to leave me wondering if there will be a sequel in the future. Kudos to @anareyeswriter for such a polished debut! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you Penguin Group/Dutton and NetGalley for the digital review copy. The House in the Pines publishes January 3, 2023. 

QOTD: tell me what’s new with you! 

I recently bought a snowblower. I wasn’t sure if my hubby was be up for shoveling snow this winter after his knee replacements. And I know I don’t want to do it myself, so I made the executive decision to get a snowblower. I’m really hoping we don’t get any snow this winter and I don’t have to use it, but I doubt that’ll happen.
