REESE’S BOOK CLUB x HELLO SUNSHINE AUGUST 2019 PICK! THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “Once again, Megan Miranda has crafted the perfect summer thriller. The Last House Guest is twisty and tense, with a pace that made my heart race. An edge-of-your-seat, up-all-night read.” —Riley Sager, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Time I Lied “Dizzying plot twists and multiple surprise endings are this author's stock in trade, but she warms them up by establishing the close friendship between Sadie Loman...and Avery Greer...And, oh boy, does she ever know how to write a twisty-turny ending (or two, or more).” —Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review “No one can be trusted in the latest chilling thriller from master of suspense, Megan Miranda. The Last House Guest is a lightning-fast mystery, full of menace and unexpected twists and turns that will have readers on the edge of their seats. A riveting read!” —Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl Littleport, Maine, has always felt like two separate towns: an ideal vacation enclave for the wealthy, whose summer homes line the coastline; and a simple harbor community for the year-round residents whose livelihoods rely on service to the visitors. Typically, fierce friendships never develop between a local and a summer girl—but that’s just what happens with visitor Sadie Loman and Littleport resident Avery Greer. Each summer for almost a decade, the girls are inseparable—until Sadie is found dead. While the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can’t help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Sadie’s brother, Parker, who blame her. Someone knows more than they’re saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name, before the facts get twisted against her. Another thrilling novel from the bestselling author of All the Missing Girls and The Perfect Stranger, Megan Miranda’s The Last House Guest is a smart, twisty read with a strong female protagonist determined to make her own way in the world.

THE NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE 2018 INTERNATIONAL THRILLER WRITERS AWARD FOR BEST HARDCOVER NOVEL 'The first great thriller of 2017 is here: Final Girls, by Riley Sager. If you liked Gone Girl, you'll like this.'-Stephen King Ten years ago, college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, she became a member of a club no one wants to belong to-a group of similar survivors known in the press as the Final Girls: Lisa, who lost nine sorority sisters to a college dropout's knife; Sam, who went up against the Sack Man during her shift at the Nightlight Inn; and now Quincy, who ran bleeding through the woods to escape Pine Cottage and the man she refers to only as Him. The three girls are all attempting to put their nightmares behind them and, with that, one another. Despite the media's attempts, they never meet. Now, Quincy is doing well-maybe even great, thanks to her Xanax prescription. She has a caring almost-fiancé, Jeff; a popular baking blog; a beautiful apartment; and a therapeutic presence in Coop, the police officer who saved her life all those years ago. Her memory won't even allow her to recall the events of that night; the past is in the past. That is until Lisa, the first Final Girl, is found dead in her bathtub, wrists slit; and Sam, the second Final Girl, appears on Quincy's doorstep. Blowing through Quincy's life like a whirlwind, Sam seems intent on making Quincy relive the past, with increasingly dire consequences, all of which makes Quincy question why Sam is really seeking her out. And when new details about Lisa's death come to light, Quincy's life becomes a race against time as she tries to unravel Sam's truths from her lies, evade the police and hungry reporters, and, most crucially, remember what really happened at Pine Cottage, before what was started ten years ago is finished.

Praise for Lock Every Door “Move over,  Rosemary's Baby, urban paranoia has a deliciously Gothic new address.” —Ruth Ware  “The Bartholomew is an apartment building of terrifying secrets. You'll find startling twists and alarming surprises down every dark hallway. It's too late to lock the doors—the horror is already inside. My favorite thriller of the year!” —R. L. Stine, author of Goosebumps   “[A] tightly plotted suspense story.” —New York Times Book Review “The author, writing under a pen name, relates ominous events and spooky developments with skill, adding an element of social commentary and a surprise twist ending—elevating this exercise in terror above the ordinary shocker.” —Wall Street Journal “If you like your thrillers with a dash of horror, you’ll love Riley Sager’s latest novel  Lock Every Door, which feels eerily similar to  Rosemary’s Baby (emphasis on the eerie) but with a broke millennial twist… Lock Every Door is suspenseful with twists you won’t see coming.” —BuzzFeed, 'The Best Thrillers of 2019' “This obsessive read invites readers in for spine-tingling fun.” —Shelf Awareness “Riley Sager takes readers on a roller coaster ride where you will have just enough time to catch your breath before the next big twist hits you. . . . This novel continues Sager's streak of providing a fresh and original voice to the world of psychological thrillers.”  —Bookreporter “Dedicated to Ira Levin, the prophetically titled Lock Every Door builds to a devastating finale that is more chilling and believable than Rosemary giving birth to the son of Satan. Sager uses the darkening atmosphere and the tiniest thing that goes bump in the night for the utmost terror.” —Associated Press “In short, Lock Every Door is a superb balancing act: a psychological suspense novel that walks the (very fine) line between ode to classic horror and inventive, modern-day suspense story all its own.” —Crime by the Book  “[A] beloved thriller writer.” —Bustle, “27 New Books Out in July 2019 to Get You Through the Sweaty Days of Summer” “Sager fans and new readers alike will enjoy this heart-pounding thriller that cleverly weaves economic anxiety with something a whole lot darker. Jules must face the demons in the woodwork and in the world around her if she is to have any hope of a future. Because, ultimately, locking every door won’t keep the terror away if the terror is locked in there with you.” —New York Journal of Books “A compulsively readable thriller . . . Fans of Ira Levin, to whom the book is dedicated, will be delighted by Sager’s clever variation on a typical Levin plot.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review  “Sager ( Final Girls) delivers a psychological, creepy, and unputdownable thriller. . . . . Likable characters, great writing, just enough twists, and a  Rosemary’s Baby vibe will make this a summer hit. Purchase for Stephen King and Gillian Flynn fans.” —Library Journal, starred review “[A] nightmarish thriller set against the backdrop of a Manhattan fairy tale.” —BookPage “All those sunny summer afternoons could use a little darkness. For a poolside thriller, check out Riley Sager's  Lock Every Door.”  —Good Housekeeping, “25 Best New Books for Summer 2019” “Ready for another Riley Sager thriller? The Final Girls author's latest, Lock Every Door, is a twisted, heart-pounding ride.” —PopSugar “Sager’s compulsive thrillers have become a highlight of the summer season, and  Lock Every
