AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
The twisty new thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door and A Stranger in the House
A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway . . . but when the storm hits, no one is getting away
It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery.
So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in and try to make the best of it.
Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic.
Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive the storm--and one another.

Not a fan of the narrator
The story seems good so far but the narrators voice is distracting. She’s got a great voice for a news caster or true crime show narration but I don’t like how she’s reading the book. There’s to much of a pattern with the emphasis and it doesn’t sound genuine. I should have listened to the preview first.
I kept reading in the hopes of it getting better and the end would bring the story all together. It did tie up loose ends but in the same predictable and stereotypical way the story was written. The plot was ok but the characters were one dimensional and the writing repetitive.
The reading was slow, painful and snide.
An unwanted guest
The narrators voice is awful almost computerized
