The perfect guests / Emma Rous.

Rous, Emma, (author.).


1988. Beth Soames is fourteen years old when her aunt takes her to stay at Raven Hall. The Averells, the family who lives there, are warm and welcoming. Beth even feels like she's part of the family... until they ask her to help them with a harmless game -- and nothing is ever the same. 2019. Sadie Langton is an actress who lands a well-paying gig to pretend to be guest at a weekend party. When she sees the stunning manor she'll be staying at, she figures she's got nothing to lose. But there's something off about the glamorous guests who arrive, and as the party begins, it becomes chillingly apparent their unseen host is playing games with everyone... including her.-- Back cover.
