As Emily digs into the villa’s complicated history, she begins to think there might be more to the story of that fateful summer in 1974. That perhaps Pierce’s murder wasn’t just a tale of sex, drugs, and rock & roll gone wrong, but that something more sinister might have occurred––and that there might be clues hidden in the now-iconic works that Mari and Lara left behind.
Yet the closer that Emily gets to the truth, the more tension she feels developing between her and Chess. As secrets from the past come to light, equally dangerous betrayals from the present also emerge––and it begins to look like the villa will claim another victim before the summer ends.
Inspired by Fleetwood Mac, the Manson murders, and the infamous summer Percy and Mary Shelley spent with Lord Byron at a Lake Geneva castle––the birthplace of Frankenstein––The Villa welcomes you into its deadly legacy.

READ MY BOOK REVIEW
The Villa is the third bingeable and highly addicting thriller from Rachel Hawkins! This book was perfect to me. Well, pretty much perfect. I feel like the ending was a little bit rushed and could have had a little more added to it to make it feel more stunning and cohesive, but I appreciate the entire novel as a whole and can’t even deduct star points for it because I loved it so much. Told in dual timelines with a murder that seamlessly weaves together the past and the present, this book was very hard to put down. I was thinking about it when I had to and immediately picked it back up when I was able to. If you enjoyed books like Verity and The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo but with a shocking murder and twisted ending, then this is a must read for you! It’s perfect for a winter read if you want to warm up after a cold day as it takes place during the summer in an Italian Villa! I highly recommend it!
