What I’m Reading: The Overnight Guest
One of my favorite authors is Iowa native, Heather Gudenkauf. I partly like it because her stories are set in Iowa. There are references that are totally normal to me like someone running through a cornfield. I can totally picture that and understand what it’s like. I’ve done it. The other part I like is that she is just a very good author. Her stories are convincing…the people are likable. I just like her as an author.
Her latest book is The Overnight Guest.
I started the book on Saturday and finished it the same day! That’s how engrossed I was in the book. I cleaned the house. I sewed with earbuds. I did any job I could so that I could keep listening. I even unloaded and loaded the dishwasher. It’s the job I like the least when it comes to keeping house. The book is a total of 9 1/2 hours if listening to audiobook form.
The book had me guessing for quite a while. At about the 8-hour mark I figured most of it out…not all of it so I was still content to listen on and I was sure glad I did, as there was a twist that I hadn’t guessed yet was totally plausible.
Here is what Amazon has to say:
