The Lion’s Den

The Lion's Den by Katherine St. John – 3.5/5 Stars

Read this if you:

· are looking for a light thriller
· love a summer in the south of France
· have ever had an evil frenemy


When Belle is invited on her friend Summer’s birthday trip, she doesn’t realize this means a private jet, a private yacht, and her very controlling, ever-present boyfriend who owns it all. While the trip has a rocky start, Belle tries to make the most of it until it starts to seem like the guests are being treated like prisoners aboard the yacht, and she has to formulate a plan to make it home alive.

My Thoughts on the Book:

Welcome back to “I Thought This Book Was A Thriller And I Would Be Too Scared To Sleep After Reading It But I Was Wrong”!

This book had so much potential! I actually loved most of it, especially how well the actual yacht trip was built up – I truly felt like I was on the Riviera! Belle is such a relatable and likeable character, I really enjoyed reading her perspective on all the insane amounts of wealth she was experiencing on this trip. I also enjoyed the back and forth of time periods in this book, and learning about Belle and Summer’s friendship through little snippets of their past.
The end of this book really fell so flat for me. I felt as though there was so much build up, and then the ending was so anticlimactic. Everything fell together really perfectly, which I appreciated, but it made the whole plot way less exciting.
