"The novel is delightfully salacious and rampant with suspense and sex, and there's a reason why Bartz is known as a hitmaker in the field."--Shondaland

"Andrea Bartz has returned to deliver. This suspense story set in a Virginia mansion features some eyebrow-raising twists, especially when protagonist Kelly finds herself charmed by her hosts--and welcomed into their bed."--Elle

"A fresh and sexy ride, perfect for reading poolside."--People

"Bartz always brings a healthy portion of social satire and incisive observation to her thrillers."--CrimeReads

"An enticing, twisty, and seductive thriller about obsession, desire, and revenge."--Nita Prose, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maid

"Bartz's latest showstopper kept me up all night turning pages. Propulsive and sexy, The Spare Room left me gasping for air as I followed its main character into the fiery heart of a dark, complicated romance. Kelly Doyle must contend not only with two new lovers but her own expectations surrounding relationships and sexuality. This is one visit you won't want to end."--Ana Reyes, New York Times bestselling author of The House in the Pines

"I love a story where a woman throws convention to the wind and has to deal with messy consequences, and The Spare Room does it brilliantly. I never knew what would happen next! This book offers a delicious mix of romance and mystery that I couldn't get enough of."--Marie Rutkoski, New York Times bestselling author of Real Easy

"With its dazzling prose, fascinating dynamics between characters, and dark, twisty plot, The Spare Room has all the trademarks of an Andrea Bartz novel--while being her sexiest and most exciting book yet. I couldn't stop turning the pages; some of these scenes will be seared into my brain forever."--Megan Collins, author of The Family Plot, Behind the Red Door, and The Winter Sister

"Rife with tension, taut desire, and jaw-dropping twists, The Spare Room lures us into a moneyed world as gothic as it is glamorous, where the difference between romantic dreams--and murderous nightmares--quickly becomes impossible to decipher. . . . A sensuous, spine-tingling thriller that's impossible to put down!"--Leah Konen, author of The Perfect Escape, You Should Have Told Me, and All the Broken People
