The Weekend Retreat: A Novel

We rated this book:


vThe Van Ness siblings have gathered for //The Weekend Retreat//, their annual celebration of Harper and Richard’s birthday hosted at their winery estate. They’ve both brought their spouses and their younger brother Zach has brought his latest girlfriend, Lauren. The party is set to be huge, that is, until a storm starts brewing and it looks like the roads will be flooded. Guests start cancelling, except for one, who’s been there the whole time and is going to make sure every Van Ness secret comes out this weekend. ||Here you have a classic tale of super rich people full of secrets and backstabbing at a secluded location, that becomes even more so with a storm cutting off all communication or help. While it’s been done, it’s still an entertaining read even though most of the characters are pretty unlikeable. I enjoy it when writers add news excerpts telling you from the beginning that people will die. It makes it interesting trying to figure out which ones it will be, especially when they are all kind of jerks. If you enjoy murder mysteries, then I recommend this book.
