Coming Soon to a Bookstore Near You - The Guest Room; Chris Bohjalian

I'm so looking forward to a favorite author's new book - Chris Bohjalian's, The Guest Room, releases early next month.

The Guest Room; Chris Bohjalian
Doubleday - Jan 2016


From the New York Times bestselling author of Midwives and The Sandcastle Girls comes the spellbinding tale of a party gone horribly wrong: two men lie dead in a suburban living room, two women are on the run from police, and a marriage is ripping apart at the seams.
When Kristin Chapman agrees to let her husband, Richard, host his brother’s bachelor party, she expects a certain amount of debauchery. She brings their young daughter to Manhattan for the evening, leaving her Westchester home to the men and their hired entertainment. What she does not expect is this: bacchanalian drunkenness, her husband sharing a dangerously intimate moment in the guest room, and two women stabbing and killing their Russian bodyguards before driving off into the night.

In the aftermath, Kristin and Richard’s life rapidly spirals into nightmare. The police throw them out of their home, now a crime scene, Richard’s investment banking firm puts him on indefinite leave, and Kristin is unsure if she can forgive her husband for the moment he shared with a dark-haired girl in the guest room. But the dark-haired girl, Alexandra, faces a much graver danger. In one breathless, violent night, she is free, running to escape the police who will arrest her and the gangsters who will kill her in a heartbeat. A captivating, chilling story about shame and scandal, The Guest Room is a riveting novel from one of our greatest storytellers.


  1. I like this author and will be looking out for this one. Thanks for the update.

  2. I love, love Bohjalian and have this waiting for me on my Kindle. Am looking forward to it - it seems like a departure for him, so I'm curious.

  3. Oh that sounds good! I didn't know he had a new one coming out!

  4. Diane, this sounds like a riveting story. I know you're a fan of this author. One of my sisters met him recently at a party or book signing.

  5. Am just back from holiday and have been out of communication somewhat. I must catch up on all your recommendations ... and decide on a reading list. Thank you for the post!

  6. This sounds like a book that would be hard to put down. Thanks for another great book Diane. Have a great Sunday :)

  7. I love Bohjalian, have read most of his contemporary books, and have one signed edition from when I lived in Maine (he's in Vermont). I look forward to this title; thanks for higlighting it.
