This instant New York Times bestseller follows Maya, a young woman who witnessed her best friend Aubrey’s sudden death seven years ago. With only hazy memories of what happened that fateful day, Maya has spent her life trying to forget about it and move on. However, things take a turn when she comes across a YouTube video of a young woman dying in a diner while sitting across from the same enigmatic man named Frank who was with Aubrey before her death. Suddenly, Maya’s memories come flooding back, and she sets out to uncover the truth about her friend’s death and the mysterious Frank.
From the get-go, “The House in the Pines” packs a powerful punch with its unique and captivating storyline. Ana Reyes weaves together different elements of suspense, mystery, and psychological drama in a way that keeps readers constantly guessing. As Maya delves deeper into her past and uncovers hidden messages, the tension builds up, and the reader cannot help but get pulled into the story.
Maya is a relatable character that readers will root for from start to finish.

As she uncovers more and more about what happened all those years ago, Maya’s character also goes through significant growth and development, making her journey even more compelling.
One of the biggest highlights of this book is the setting. Reyes has brought to life the small town of Berkshires with such vivid detail that it feels like a character in its own right. The descriptions of the dense woods, the dusty old bookshop, and the eerie silence all add to the novel’s atmospheric tone, making it even more thrilling to read.
But what truly sets “The House in the Pines” apart is its twists and turns. Just when you think you’ve figured out what’s going on, the story takes a sharp turn, leaving you reeling.
