Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six

Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six

Thursday night at midnight I finished “Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six,” by author Lisa Unger who I was delighted that I was able to do a Q&A with this past summer which you can read here . “Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six,” is about three couples who spend a long weekend at a luxury cabin not realizing that someone is watching them from the woods, someone who has an ax to grind. The novel comes out on November 8th. If you haven’t requested a copy from Netgalley like I did, preorder the novel now or put it on hold at the library.



I like the setting of the cabin in the woods in Georgia. The story reminded me almost of “And Then There Were None,” since many people had secrets and they were trapped somewhere only this time it was a cabin. Whether the cabin is luxury or not it gives the sense of it being haunted. I also liked reading points of views of the many characters. While some books don’t always do a good job of so many characters and how their stories intertwine, Lisa Unger did a good job of that without it being overwhelming. You don’t know how the characters stories would intertwine but of course towards the end the light bulb in your head will tell you, “Oh! I see how the stories connect now!”




I did feel like everything was tied up too neatly. I also felt the character of Bracken was out of place for this story, I liked him but he felt out of place. I caught an error of when Spongebob first was on tv. A chapter from Henry’s point of view in 1997 had him watching Spongebob. Spongebob came out in 1999. I remember because I was 7 years old in 1999.




Overall my first time reading a novel from Lisa Unger was wonderful. I can’t wait to read more from her especially “Confessions On The 7:45”, which will be a Netflix movie starring Jessica Alba.  Thank you Netgalley for the early copy of this novel, and thank you Lisa Unger for writing it preorder the novel so you can get it on November 8th or put it on hold at your library.
