The USA Today bestselling author of The Au Pair returns with another delicious, twisty novel—about a grand estate with many secrets, an orphan caught in a web of lies, and a young woman playing a dangerous game.

1980: Beth Soames is fourteen years old when a kind couple finds her playing the violin at her orphanage’s yearly fund-raiser. The Averills take her home with them to Raven Hall, a rambling manor on the Norfolk coast. There she runs wild with their daughter, Nina, and they become fast friends. At times, Beth even dreams she’s truly part of the family…until she’s asked to take part in what seems like a harmless game—and nothing is ever the same.

Present day: Sadie Langton is an actress struggling to make ends meet when she lands a well-paying gig attending a weekend party. Her anonymous employer sends her a suitcase of clothing, a dossier of the role she is to play, and instructions—it’s strange, but she needs the money, and when she sees the stunning manor she’ll be staying at she can’t resist the chance.

In person, Raven Hall is even grander than she’d imagined—even with the damage from a fire decades before—but the walls seem to have eyes. As day turns to night, there is something off about the glamorous guests who arrive, and as the game she is meant to be leading begins, it becomes chillingly apparent their unseen host has plans for all of them…including her.

Praise for The Perfect Guests

“Clever and engaging. Rous creates the ultimate house party mystery. A room full of strangers—or
are they? Whispers of an old tragedy—or is it? An elaborately plated dinner—until one by one the guests fall ill. Old secrets and new dangers collide in this deliciously thrilling tale.”—Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

“A richly atmospheric time-slip mystery with the pulse of a thriller, The Perfect Guests is deliciously evocative and absolutely spellbinding. Set up like a game of Clue, the story alternates between two narratives, one in the past, the other in the present, each chapter winding the tension higher as you discover the pieces you need to solve the puzzle. With vividly drawn characters, gorgeous prose, and an electric sense of place and time, I was sucked in from the very first page. [A] fun and immensely satisfying treat!”—Christina McDonaldUSA Today Bestselling Author of Behind Every Lie
 
“Anyone yearning for a page-turning gothic story with a big house - and a shocking family secret - at its heart should gatecrash The Perfect Guests immediately.”—Eve Chase, author of The Daughters of Foxcoate Manor

“As seductive but secretly treacherous as Raven Hall itself, this novel delivers devour-in-a-day diversion.. Rous has upped her game with this one.”—Publishers Weekly
 
“The reader must carefully shuffle the puzzle pieces into a perfect fit until the very end and one more visit to Raven Hall, when the entire board is undone. This is a party suspense fans are advised to crash.”—Booklist (starred review)

Praise for The Au Pair

“This is one hell of a ride.”—New York Post

“This will keep you turning those pages. The characters are still playing on my mind.”—Jane CorryUSA Today bestselling author of My Husband’s Wife

“Entrancing and compelling, The Au Pair seamlessly alternates between two riveting narrators. Atmospheric and reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier’s work, it’s a beautiful read that delivers a shocking and satisfying ending.”—Liv ConstantineUSA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish

“As delicious and spellbinding as a soap opera, complete with the dramatic moments and outrageous twists. A promising first novel from Rous, The Au Pair is an absolutely absorbing and scandalous page-turner.”—Booklist
