As Hurricane Celeste closes in on their coastal Florida mansion, the Davies family prepares to hunker down and ride out the storm. Marlowe, Lee, and their teenage twins are a picture-perfect family, but their affluence has made them oblivious to impending danger. When the storm descends, they open their doors to friends in need of shelter, never expecting the arrival of three strangers shortly afterward. Though uneasy about these new people, the Davieses feel they can’t refuse anyone shelter during a natural disaster. The unsettled people find themselves trapped together for the duration of the storm, and it soon becomes apparent that the three strangers did not arrive by accident. Hunt (Lovely Girls) presents a tense and twisting plot-driven domestic suspense. Narrators Amy McFadden, Sarah Naughton, Michael Crouch, Soneela Nankani, and A.J. Beckles give dramatic and engaging performances as the various friends, family members, and foes. From enmity to anxiety, they expertly portray every emotional moment.
VERDICT Will appeal to listeners seeking a fast-paced, family-centered suspense. Recommended for fans of Joy Fielding, Robyn Harding, and Adrian McKinty.
