About The Book:
After every divorce, one spouse gets all the friends. What does the other one get? If they’re smart, they get the benefits.
Alyssa Macallan has been dumped by her wealthy and manipulative husband, and now she’s terrified that her toxic soon-to-be-ex is scheming to ruin her, leaving her penniless and alone.
Just when Alyssa could really use a friend, she makes one — a seductive new friend who’s running from a dangerous relationship of her own. Alyssa offers Bree Lorrance the safety of her guest house, and the two become confidantes. Then, Bree makes a tempting offer. Maybe they can solve each others’ problems.
But no one is who they seem. And the fates and fortunes of these two determined women twist and turn until the shocking truth emerges: You can’t always get what you want. But sometimes you get what you deserve.
With THE HOUSE GUEST, Hank Phillippi Ryan has once again spun a stunning new suspenseful standalone that will be devoured by fans who’ll rip through the pages—and be left gasping at the final twists. Only Ryan could combine her award-winning reporting skills and talented fiction writing to blend the right notes of suspense, a shifting version of the truth, and a dark story of psychological manipulation.
