Review, Guest Post, Excerpt, and Giveaway: The Cabin by Erin Unger

About the Book

Book: The Cabin  
Author: Erin Unger  
Genre: Romantic suspense  
Release date: June 14, 2019

Leah Kettridge’s writing career is over before the first book lands on the shelf, when a famous author has claimed she’s stolen his work. If it wasn’t for a story brainstorming luncheon with her sister, he’d have never overheard her conversation about the novel she was writing. Who will she ever trust again if not her most favorite writer? And what about the one fabulous date they had before she knew what a traitor he was? 

Keenan Brinner has it all. He’s a best-selling author who’s only headed toward more greatness. And he must be the most gorgeous guy Leah’s ever seen. But he’s also a liar and a cheat. 

When they end up at the same cabin to write, emotions explode. But an unexpected snowstorm traps them deep in the mountains. Is he bent on destroying her in more ways than one? How will love find them amidst all their anger and distrust?

My Thoughts:

At first glance, I was not sure if I would be reading a creepy story or a love story. The cover does not really give any clues just that we are certainly getting Leah’s viewpoint. 

Leah is a writer and she is having a bad season right now. She has been accused by another author of plagiarism. Not only that, but this is a guy she has had romantic feelings about. She insists she is innocent and Keenan and his lawyers insist she is guilty. She decides to get away and go to a writer’s paradise- a remote cabin in the mountains- and to get a way for a week and start a new novel, to get her head cleared.

But when does life ever work out the way we planned? Much to her shock and horror, she finds out she will be sharing a cabin with none other than her nemesis- Keenan himself. Add to that a monster snowstorm is on the way.

I was pleasantly surprise by this novella and almost read it in one sitting. I enjoyed the characters, their reactions, banter, and yes even their animosity toward each other. This was a cleverly written story and I hope the author might write a longer continuation of these two characters. I did enjoy her writing and I definitely look forward to more of author Unger’s stories.

I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

About the Author

Erin Unger was raised in the hills of Virginia, exploring abandoned houses and reading the scariest books she could find. After marrying so young it would make a great romance novel, she has enjoyed an exciting life with her hubby. But her fast-paced life sometimes rivals the suspense in her books thanks to all her mostly grown children and a couple grandkids. Her next novel, Fateful Fall, releases August 9, 2019.   

More from Erin

Glittery snow. The perfect cabin in the mountains. And sworn enemies trapped together. How could anything go wrong? 

Welcome to the cabin where writers like to go to get away from the noise and bother of life to write. I hope you don’t mind the two guests already here. They’re stuck together after one stole the other’s novel. But the famous one has firsts rights to the work. Who’d dare believe he’d be the perpetrator of the crime? Or is it the newbie writer who longed to be known for more than her graphic designs who plagiarized? 

Stay and enjoy a mug of instant coffee and some potted meat. And make sure to bring in your warmest blanket, since this eclectic home has lost power in the storm. 

You’ll also find a complementary cordless phone with no connection for your accommodations.

Enjoy your stay! And take a moment to check out our amenities folder laden with an expert below.   

Read an excerpt from The Cabin

Betrayal is such a benign looking word on paper. In real life it could kill a person. Like me. I was dying on the inside as I flipped from one page to the next of the bestselling novel in my hands. And all because of Keenan Brennan—the hottest bestselling author I knew and dated some time ago. Yet some part of me kept praying it wasn’t true as I pressed into the sofa cushion and continued to read. 

It just couldn’t be. 

But the book with the startlingly dark cover said it all.

“No, no, no.” 

Hot tears stung my cheeks as I ripped the well-designed cover off the book and then launched it across the living room. It smashed against the refurbished brick wall and landed with its pages bent. Good. It deserved a worse fate than just bent pages. 

How? When had he stolen my book idea? 

I face-planted my palm against my forehead. “At the restaurant.” 

Why didn’t I keep my big fat mouth shut and tell my sister Aeris the storyline in the privacy of my home? Tears stung my eyes. Who’d have guessed my lowdown almost boyfriend would stoop so low. He didn’t need my work. 

I stared across the room, not focusing on the heap of a good—terrible—book. Well it was on the NYT bestselling list. Not bad for a nobody writer like myself. And since it was my story—not his—then I allowed myself a moment of self-satisfaction. 

My gaze dropped to the torn book. I had to take another look. Couldn’t it be a coincidence? Maybe the rest of it was different. In a scramble, I grabbed it up and found the page I last read. 

By chapter forty there was no doubt.
