Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s bagsed on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well!
The setting kinda drew me to this, snowy weather and a gorgeous Inn all nestled away in Updtate New York. Then, after I got reading the blurb and learned about the blizzard and dead bodies turning up, I knew this was right up my alley. (Don’t look at me that way. lol ) I am always on the lookout for a great psychological thriller. And this is one that I can’t wait to see who did it and do they make it out alive!!
How about you, what are you waiting on?
A remote lodge in upstate New York is the perfect getaway . . . until the bodies start piling up.
It’s winter in the Catskills and the weather outside is frightful, but Mitchell’s Inn is so delightful! The cozy lodge nestled deep in the woods is perfect for a relaxing–maybe even romantic–weekend away. The Inn boasts spacious old rooms with huge wood-burning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a book and someone you love.
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 for the long haul. The power’s down but they’ve got candles, blankets, and wood–a genuine rustic experience!
Soon, though, a body turns up–surely an accident. When a second body appears, they start to panic. Then they find a third body.
Within the snowed-in paradise, something–or someone–is picking off the guests one by one. They can’t leave, and with no cell service, there’s no prospect of getting the police in until the weather loosens its icy grip.
The weekend getaway has turned deadly. For some couples, it’s their first time away. For others, it will be their last. And there’s nothing they can do about it but huddle down and hope they can survive the storm.
There’s a couple of different covers for this one…
What do you think of the other covers? Which do you think matches the storyline better?
