Blurb from Back of Book

Britt Pfeiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn’t prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants—but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage.

In exchange for her life, Britt agrees to guide the men off the mountain. As they set off, Britt knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there… and in uncovering this, she may become the killer’s next target.

But nothing is as it seems in the mountains, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally?

My Review

After reading the first 2 chapters I thought this book was going to be rubbish and was finding it hard to get in to and carry on. The only reason I carried on reading it was because I had to do a blog post review on it. But the more I read the more I wanted to continue reading.

If follows 17 year old Britt, who is plans on going hiking up in the mountains with her best friend Korbie, for Spring break. They were also supposed to be meeting korbies brother, Calvin and her boyfriend. But on the drive up to the mountain they are met by a strong snow storm and get their car stranded.

They are forced to walk to find help or shelter, and come across a small cabin with 2 men. But the men are wanted by the police and want Britt to help guide them of the mountain.

Soon Britt finds herself praying for her life, from the cold weather and her captures. But has things change, she finds herself getting closer to one of Her captures.

Things take a turn when she finds something hidden in her captures belongings, which makes her scared. But is their something she should be more scared of?

Even though the first couple of chapters didn’t grab me, I am glad I carried on reading as the last half of the book was really good. I can imagine watching this as a film. I’d give this book 3/5 stars. definitely worth a read

  1. What is your favourite book of all time? or what are you currently reading ………… my favourite book is ‘Clan of the Cave Bear’ by Jean M Auel

  2. I love reading, I think The Secret Garden as to be one from childhood that I loved dearly. As I get older I seem to like easier reads really like James Patterson and Ian Rankin, also love Karin Slaughter books. Kate Mosse’s Labyrinth and Sepulchre were really good but I still go back to childhood hooks which seem to have stuck, I would probably say Treasure Island and The adventures of Alice in wonderland x x

  3. So many! I’d have to say my favourite of favourites is Stephen King’s Dark Tower series. I’m currently reading Men of Men by another of my fave authors Wilbur Smith

  4. not a single book but adore the shopaholic series, have since I was growing up. Always made me laugh.

  5. like autobiographies, especially human interest, currently reading the girl without a voice by casey watson, couldn’t possibly pick out a favourite as i read so many and love most of them

  6. My favourite book of all time is called a year without Micheal, I read it as a teenager and I have never forgotten how I felt when I read it.

  7. My all time favourite is Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. At the moment I’m reading a rather steamy American detective story called Hot Pursuit by Jo Davis – a bit rubbishy but still a gripping story

  8. My favourite book is Clan of the Cave Bear. At the moment I’m reading The Worst Street in London by Fiona Rule. 🙂

  9. Difficult to choose but the most recent read where I was completely gripped was Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.

  10. It has to be Lavender Girl – By Paula Hickford!

    It’s her first book and I just couldn’t put it down!

  11. Favorite book of all time is Fantastic Mr Fox, brings back school memories and a great story aswell

  12. I’m currently reading “Elizabeth is Missing” and enjoying it so far, it’s a bit different as it’s from the viewpoint of a lady with dementia, which can be emotional for me as I have 2 grandma’s both suffering from this horrible disease.

  13. Favourite book is difficult but any of Jane Austen’s work I can read again and again and still see things anew.
    As for current reading I have just finished Summertime by Vanessa LaFaye which is based on true events and am about to start Not Quite Nice by Celia Imrie which, if it is as witty as the actress, should be some light relief.

  14. Currently reading “H is for Hawk” by Helen MacDonald (she’s giving a talk next month at a local independant book shop near me!)

  15. I have so many favourites, but if I had to choose I’d have to say any of the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich as they never fail to have me laughing out loud.

  16. I’m currently reading The Memory of Midnight / pamela hartshorne. I can’t really choose a favorite as there are so many I like but the one I have read the most is Stephen Kings IT
