The Perfect Guest By Ruth Irons

‘The Perfect Guest’ is the latest book by Ruth Irons.

We all have that friend – the one who doesn’t quite belong. Dinah Marshall is that person and knows it. After someone drops out, she’s invited to spend the weekend at a luxury holiday home with women she’s known since university. However, the gulf between them has widened since then, and Dinah is conscious of being the only one with no money, career, partner or children. Feeling like an outsider, she takes to snooping around the house. She’s fascinated by its owners, Sarah and Isaac Rivers – and when she discovers she can secretly stay an extra night, that fascination quickly spirals into obsession. When Isaac Rivers meets ‘Diana Malone’ at an exclusive members club, he introduces her to his wife and friends, and she’s soon welcomed into the group. She seems to be trying a little too hard, however, and as her somewhat intense behaviour starts to raise both eyebrows and questions, one of her new acquaintances begins to suspect she isn’t who she says she is. For Diana – or is it Dinah? -this is a disaster: she’s worked hard to get where she has, and these suspicions threaten everything. But Diana isn’t the only one with secrets, and if she’s going down, then she might just take everyone else with her . .

Looking for a holiday read? Then look no further, as ‘The Perfect Guest’ ticks all the boxes, a gripping psychological thriller with a leading lady that you keeps you on your toes and you can’t decide whether to feel sorry for you her or dislike her. She’s a complex character who’s always tried to fit in but it’s never quite worked and always seems to be on the outside looking in.

This book is cleverly written with original twists and turns that keeps the reader hooked and bursting for more and the author certainly delivers with this rollercoaster of a story.

Tense and suspenseful from the first page, ‘The Perfect Guest’ is a story of deceit and belonging that pulls the reader in from the first page, I read this in one sitting – it’s that good!
