Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing The Resort by Sue Watson, published by Bookouture.


You’ve been excited about this getaway for months – at last, a chance to reconnect with your husband at a secluded island resort. But when he unexpectedly calls you from the beach, you hear the urgency in his voice. Something is very wrong.

The beautiful waitress from the restaurant last night has been found lying dead in the sand. And the police want to question your husband about it.

Sure, you saw him glance at her over dinner a few times, but you know he didn’t have anything to do with the poor girl’s death. So why is he asking you to lie to the police that he was with you all night? And where did he go in those missing hours?

When he returns to your beautiful sea-view suite, things get heated and he accuses you of being jealous, just like he always does. Yes, the waitress was overly flirtatious with your husband, but you didn’t actually wish her any harm. Not really.

Can you trust the man you married… or are you the one who can’t be trusted?

A completely gripping, utterly twisted thriller that will have you turning the pages all night long! Perfect for fans of Gone Girl, The Hunting Party and The Girl on the Train.

When a dream trip becomes your worst nightmare…

The Resort is another riveting read from Watson. I really enjoyed this one as I was transported to a picturesque secluded island which was such a stark contrast to the sinister going ons within the pages.

As always Watson brings to the table a well plotted tale full of secrets, lies and deceit as you work to uncover who is hiding the most. Nothing is as it seems and a great job is done in keeping you in the dark until its surprising revelations are brought to light.

A very entertaining well written piece of work with a cast of strong and well crafted characters that bring everything to life, The Resort is a must read.
