"A captivating psychological suspense debut about a young woman still haunted by her teenage best friend's death who learns of an eerily similar death and must find her way back to a cabin in the New England woods, armed only with hazy memories, to finally find out the truth that has eluded her. Maya was a high school senior when her best friend Aubrey mysteriously dropped dead in front of the enigmatic man, Frank, they'd been hanging around with all summer. Seven years later, Maya is just managing to move on; she lives in Boston with a loving boyfriend and is finally kicking the secret Klonopin habit that's allowed her to cope with what happened all those years ago. But her past comes back to haunt her when she discovers a recent YouTube video in which a young woman suddenly keels over in a diner sitting across from none other than Frank. Plunged back into the trauma that has defined her life, Maya heads to her small Berkshires hometown to finally figure out the truth about what happened. With guidance from the half-written book by the father in Guatemala she never knew, Maya's quest for answers forces her to relive that fateful summer-the influence Frank once had on her and the jealousy that nearly destroyed her friendship with Aubrey-finally leading her back to Frank's cabin in the woods. The House in the Pines is an utterly unique and surprising thriller about the subtlety of memory and manipulation, confronting the past, and the powerful and lasting bonds of family and friendship"--… (mais)

Slow-moving story about a woman with drink/drug/mental issues researching a tragedy in her past.

Unreliable narrators can be fun, but selfish, flaky ones simply annoy me, and I couldn’t raise much interest or concern for the protagonist. ( )

VERY impressive, especially for a debut novel! It's so interesting that she teaches creative writing to older adults. The story goes back and forth between the present and 7 years ago but it's cleverly done and she writes in a way that makes you want to keep turning pages. Definitely a different plot and that was terrific! Interesting to see the different reactions from other readers. ( )

I love Reese Witherspoon, but this was my first and last Reese's club book. The premise sounded interesting enough, but as I read, my feelings could only be described as "meh" - which is not what you want in a thriller. I can suspend my disbelief quite far for fiction, but I found myself unable to believe the ending in any way - Hypnosis? And the cops actually taking it seriously? No I just don't believe that. The book is an author debut, and I personally think it should have spent more time in editing before being published. A disappointing read overall for the hype it got. ( )

Creepy and disturbing. A different kind of read than my normal go--to.

Following the MC in this book through the time jumps was easy. Her self-doubt was done well and kept me guessing whether her issues were in her head, from intoxication (drug or otherwise), or something far more disturbing. The payoff was in the bar toward the end of the book, and I did not know how it would all turn out. I enjoyed the writing and it took me just about 24 hours to get through over a weekend. I couldn't put the book down for the first ten chapters, and after that, I was just happy to see where it went. I would though have liked a little more "meat" at the end of the book, perhaps even a misdirect before the end. I still think though its a worthwhile read over a weekend or on a trip. ( )
