THE RULES
1. Listen carefully
2. Do your research
3. Trust no one
4. Run for your life
Harriet Reed, a novelist on the brink of literary stardom, is newly engaged to Edward Holbeck, the heir of an extremely powerful family. And even though Edward has long tried to severe ties with them, news of the couple??s marital bliss has the Holbecks inching back into their lives.
As Harriet is drawn into their lavish world, the family seems perfectly welcoming. So when Edward??s father, Robert, hands Harriet a tape of a book he??s been working on, she is desperate to listen.
But as she presses play, it??s clear that this isn??t just a novel. It??s a confession.
A confession to a grisly crime. A murder. And, suddenly, the game is in motion.
Feeling isolated and confused, Harriet must work out if this is part of a plan to test her loyalty. Or something far darker. What is it that Robert sees in her? Why give her the power to destroy everything?
This might be a game to the Holbeck family??but losing might still prove deadly.

I enjoyed the storyline in Ready or Not more than what was in this book ( )
  cmpeters | Feb 2, 2024 |
Harriet, a bestselling novelist, is engaged to Edward, eldest son of one of the wealthiest families in America. Meeting his family turns out to be as unnerving as anticipated. Then as Christmas approaches the family invite Harriet to join in their strange “games” that are foreign to her, a new arrival from England. Thrilling, horrifying, but totally unrealistic, secrets emerge as the story progresses. Harriet should have escaped the in-laws from hell and run, as fast as she could, back to England at any point in this story. Even with the high level unbelievability, this is a book that is hard to put down as the reader joins Harriet in trying desperately to figure out what is going on. ( )

This is a little more "scary movie thriller" than I normally pick. It was a ride but pretty extreme. I did manage to not guess the ending. ( )

Thanks to NetGalley for the review copy. It was definitely a thriller. I didn’t see the plot twist coming. ( )

Harriet Reed meets her fiance's family and is given a cassette by the father. This sounds like he is confessing to a crime. Why is he telling her this? I really enjoyed this. It's not the greatest writing and I figured it out but the plot was so unique it kept me captivated. How it plays out at the end had me trying to catch my breath. It's only few and far between that a thriller will catch me with a unique plot I haven't read before. A popcorn thriller that would make a good Christmas read. ( )
