Shari Lapena - An ​Unwanted Guest
A ​remote lodge in upstate New York is the perfect getaway . . . until the bodies start piling up. It's winter in the Catskills and the weather outside is frightful, but Mitchell's Inn is so delightful! The cozy lodge nestled deep in the woods is perfect for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. The Inn boasts spacious old rooms with huge wood-burning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a book and someone you love. So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in for the long haul. The power's down but they've got candles, blankets, and wood--a genuine rustic experience! Soon, though, a body turns up--surely an accident. When a second body appears, they start to panic. Then they find a third body. Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. They can't leave, and with no cell service, there's no prospect of getting the police in until the weather loosens its icy grip. The weekend getaway has turned deadly. For some couples, it's their first time away. For others, it will be their last. And there's nothing they can do about it but huddle down and hope they can survive the storm.

Shari Lapena - A ​Stranger in the House
He ​looks at her, concerned. “How do you feel?” She wants to say, Terrified. Instead, she says, with a faint smile, “Glad to be home.” Karen and Tom Krupp are happy—they’ve got a lovely home in upstate New York, they’re practically newlyweds, and they have no kids to interrupt their comfortable life together. But one day, Tom returns home to find Karen has vanished—her car’s gone and it seems she left in a rush. She even left her purse—complete with phone and ID—behind. There's a knock on the door—the police are there to take Tom to the hospital where his wife has been admitted. She had a car accident, and lost control as she sped through the worst part of town. The accident has left Karen with a concussion and a few scrapes. Still, she’s mostly okay—except that she can’t remember what she was doing or where she was when she crashed. The cops think her memory loss is highly convenient, and they suspect she was up to no good. Karen returns home with Tom, determined to heal and move on with her life. Then she realizes something’s been moved. Something’s not quite right. Someone’s been in her house. And the police won't stop asking questions. Because in this house, everyone’s a stranger. Everyone has something they’d rather keep hidden. Something they might even kill to keep quiet.

Shari Lapena - Karnyújtásnyira ​a gonosztól
Miért ​menekülne el valaki rémülten idilli otthonából? A vacsorát készíted, miközben a munkából hazafelé tartó, imádott férjedet várod, hogy végre elmondja, mi történt vele aznap. Emlékeid itt érnek véget. Egy kórteremben ébredsz, elképzelésed sincs, hogy kerültél oda. Azt mondják, baleset ért - elveszítetted az irányítást az autód fölött a város egyik legveszélyesebb környékén. A rendőrség szerint elkövettél valamit. A férjed melletted áll, a legjobb barátod viszont nem hisz neked. A végén már magad sem tudod, mit gondolj…

Shari Lapena - A ​szomszéd pár
A ​szomszédod azt mondta, nem akarja, hogy átvidd a hat hónapos kislányodat a vacsorapartira. Ez nem személyes ügy, egyszerűen nem bírja a gyereksírást. A férjed azt mondta, minden rendben lesz. Hiszen tényleg csak a szomszédba mentek. Viszitek a bébiőrt, és felváltva átugrotok megnézni, hogy jól van-e a kicsi. A lányod édesen alszik, alig egy órája, hogy utoljára ránéztél. De most, ahogy rohansz fel a lépcsőn a síri csendben, a legszörnyűbb rémálmod válik valóra. A kisbaba eltűnt. Még soha életedben nem kellett kihívnod a rendőrséget, most meg tele van velük az egész ház. És ki tudja, mit találnak. A szomszéd pár letehetetlenül izgalmas thriller, fordulatos és hátborzongató, egyben érzékeny és okos regény, amely nem mulasztja el feltenni a kínzó kérdést: vajon te elég jó szülő vagy? "A valódi férfiak női írókat olvasnak - az olyan könyvek miatt, mint ez." Lee Child "Finoman kidolgozott és borotvaéles. A szomszéd pár az elolvasása után még sokáig nem hagy majd nyugodni." Harlan Coben "Fordulatos történet, amely az érzelmek vad hullámvasútján szabályosan a székhez szegezi olvasóját." Tess Gerritsen
