Book Mark! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

‘OMG, you always know that you are starting on one hell of an emotional roller coaster ride whenever you start reading one of Rona Halsall’s incredible thrillers and The Guest Room is no exception… Addictive… Once I started, I couldn’t put down and simply had to read in one sitting… Very very highly recommended and definitely one of my favourite reads of this year.’ 

Nicki’s Life of Crime ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Rona was also no stranger to best-seller lists in 2021 with two of her previous novels finding their way into the Amazon top 100 charts in Australia. She is so pleased to have such a dedicated international readership. Congratulations, Rona, on the publication of The Guest Room!

 Here’s a treat for those of you who are desperate to find out more…

 You think you’re safe in your home. You’re wrong.

Ever since Steph’s husband walked out after a thirty-year marriage, home hasn’t felt like a safe haven. Her daughter Bea thinks she’s imagining things. But Steph knows that the noises in the night, the open windows she knows she left closed, the strange smell in the kitchen – none of it feels right.

Then her house is broken into, and a young man named Noah helps her fix the front window. He’s fallen on hard times and Steph impulsively offers him a place to stay. At least if he is there, she won’t be home alone.

Before long Noah is living in Bea’s old bedroom, paying rent, and getting his life back on track. Steph’s ex-husband and Bea are furious. But Steph feels secure at last.

Until the strange things start happening once more.

Until it becomes clear someone will stop at nothing to make her never, ever feel safe again.

The most twisty and unputdownable thriller of the year – perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, Mark Edwards and Gone Girl.
