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?
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
