✱✱Book Review✱✱ The Lion's Den by Katherine St. John

Lion's Den
by Katherine St. John

Sex, betrayal, and intrigue: A dream vacation on a luxurious yacht turns deadly in this pulse-pounding beach read "chock full of delicious characters who flaunt their sins . . . like the latest Birkin bag" (Adriana Trigiani).
Belle likes to think herself immune to the dizzying effects of fabulous wealth. But when her best friend, Summer, invites her on a glamorous getaway to the Mediterranean aboard her billionaire boyfriend's yacht, the only sensible answer is yes. Belle hopes the trip will be a much-needed break from her stalled acting career and uniquely humiliating waitressing job, but once she's aboard the luxurious Lion's Den, it soon becomes clear this jet-setting holiday is not as advertised.

Belle's dream vacation quickly devolves into a nightmare as she and the handful of other girls Summer invited are treated more like prisoners than guests by their controlling host-and in one terrifying moment, Belle comes to see Summer for who she truly is: a vicious gold digger who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Belle realizes she's going to have to keep her wits about her -- and her own big secret closely hidden -- if she wants to make it off the yacht alive.

Momma Says: 4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐

With a pandemic keeping most of us at home, why not while away a weekend with some backstabbing among the rich and famous and the wannabe rich and famous. The Lion's Den turned out to be a terrific little escape from reality for me. I kind of expected a lot of fluff but the story got suspenseful pretty quickly. And I'll just add here that there were some twists I did not see coming, which doesn't happen all that often, so it was super fun to be surprised. The book is well written, fast-paced, and perfect for a summertime binge read.
