Hello, readers! Last week, I said that all those horror-thriller style books seemed to get better trailers overall than the other genres, and this week I was proved horribly, terribly wrong with this new trailer for a book called The Cypress Trap. Usually there's at least one thing that's really good about each trailer, but there's not much here to be impressed by. A bunch of still pictures, the text is uninteresting and a copy of the summary nearly word-for-word, and for a thriller in the wilderness, they decided to use a strange panelly-pixelly transition? The last bit wouldn't matter so much if they didn't decide to do so many of them and keep the grid in place in front of all the pictures! At least the music was okay, and the summary isn't bad for a plot.
A good vacation delivers you home alive.
This is not a good vacation.
When Rayanne commandeers her husband’s weekend fishing trip, she knows it’ll take work to adjust Owen’s attitude. She has no choice. Since the tragedy, they lost so much. They need to reconnect.
Without her knowledge, Owen texts his best buddy, Daryl, to join the getaway. The three of them aren’t alone in the backwoods of Georgia, though.
Owen took something that didn’t belong to him. Something that changed their lives. And now the owner wants it back. By any means -- including a posse led by a killer dog.
At first, Rayanne is clueless about the item and its value. One thing becomes crystal clear: If it’s not returned, they might not make it home alive.
It seems a bit superfluous to have Owen "sneak" Daryl into their trip, instead of just having him coming from the beginning. Wouldn't a good friend be helpful in mending whatever emotional problems they have? And when did Owen take this object, sometime before the trip or during it? It seems a bit like before, since it had time to change all their lives. My favorite bit is the fragment about the posse, as if that's a logical extension of "any means" that anyone would use. Why not just say murder, or is the posse really too important to leave out? But it does definitely interest me. We'll see whatever other means this owner uses on this book's release of August 16! See you all on Monday!
