‘Atmospheric, original and tension-filled, THE GUEST HOUSE will keep you on the edge of your seat.’ T.M. Logan, author of THE CURFEW


Jamie and Victoria are expecting their first baby.

With a few weeks to go, they head off for a final weekend break in a remote part of the North Pennines. The small and peaceful guesthouse is the ideal location to unwind together before becoming parents. Upon arrival, they are greeted by Barry and Fiona, the older couple who run the guesthouse. They cook them dinner and show them to their room before retreating to bed themselves.

The next morning, Jamie and Victoria wake to find the house deserted. Barry and Fiona are nowhere to be seen. All the doors are locked. Both their mobile phones and car keys have disappeared. Even though it’s a few weeks early, Victoria knows the contractions are starting.

The baby is coming, and there’s no way out.

A gripping, must-read, tightly plotted thriller with dizzying twists and turns that will keep you on your toes
John Marrs, author of KEEP IT IN THE FAMILY
A tense thriller with a killer twist! Morgan-Bentley has hit on a chilling scenario that kept me rapt and tearing through the pages. His writing is vivid and utterly engaging with shrewd character observations that really brought Victoria and Jamie's nightmare to life. The dual timelines ramped up the tension and intrigue, gradually revealing what had actually happened and setting the scene for a killer twist. Highly recommended!

I absolutely loved it - such a page-turner with the most excellent plot twist at the very end.

Joshua Moehling, author of AND THERE HE KEPT HER
Ferocious and irresistible, THE GUEST HOUSE is a compelling story that explores just how much a parent is willing to sacrifice for their child. Morgan-Bentley is a master of the curveball, hitting us with thrill after thrill that this reader definitely did not see coming. The cherry on top was the blood-freezing epilogue. I'll be thinking about it for weeks!
Stephanie Wrobel, author of DARLING ROSE GOLD
I loved this twisty and terrifying thriller. The sense of unfolding horror is utterly irresistible - it had me hooked from the very first page. I gobbled it up!
Katherine Faulkner
Utterly Intriguing, page-turning and impossible to second guess
Rosamund Lupton
A bone-chilling premise about every parent's nightmare, which fully delivers with every twist and turn. Robin masterfully reels the reader in from the first chapter and doesn't let go until that haunting last line. Get ready to bite your nails to the beds as the tension racks up!
