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.

geeesh, nicknames are hard. ,

Well written. I liked it. Spoiler alert - how could you be at altitude, at a quaint hotel, during a vicious snowstorm, and an even more vicious ice storm and be so woefully unprepared. The writer must be a Southerner. I could maybe believe no backup generator but nobody would be that unprepared in that environment. Just a nagging thought that detracts from the story. Grumpy. Geeersh, nicknames are hard.

Good, until...

As a reader it’s easy to blast an author’s work. Something they have put tremendous amounts thought and energy can be reduced by a biased opinion. I want to love every book I read.

I wanted to love this book. I really enjoyed the setup and interplay of the characters. But I was disappointed in the method of the reveal. It felt a bit lazy and uninspired. I wanted a great revelation where things fell into place, and the story got elevated in the end. Instead it had to be explained with a secondary story that played in the background. The final twist was fun, but not profound enough to save me from blasting this review.

Couldn’t even finish this book

I was excited about this book because I loved this authors other, recent popular book “the couple next door” but sadly there is no comparison. This book was painfully boring, I read about half of it just hoping it would eventually Improve, but unfortunately it did not. I can’t believe this is the same author because The Couple Next Door was such a page turner... but this definitely was not, I don’t recommend.
