Wow!! I quite liked the book even though I thought I was Miss Smarty Pants for having guessed the ending. But wait… No, I didn’t… I missed the clues by a mile. Author Catherine Cooper on her debut caught me quite unaware when she wrote her twists.

4 couples separated by 20 years and connected by the same chalet in the Alps. A tragedy occurred in 1998, and its repercussions were felt in 2020 when Ria and Hugo entertained Simon and wife on a skiing week. A body was found on the slopes…

The story started with the usual unlikable characters in the present times where a bored housewife, a scared housewife and their business husbands went skiing together. The prose had them trying to get the upper hand over one another. They were all greasy and slimy, and sadly to say, quite pathetic.

The story became intriguing when a body was found in the mountains. The author turned the picture around, peeling each layer off, which slowly started showing their interconnections. Some of them escaped my sharp eye.

Different POVs in dual timelines painted me a new picture, which made the prose interesting. Interspersed among them was a story narrated by a child of the hardships undergone. I kept wondering who amongst all in the chalet was that child. I was wrong in my guess.

Obnoxious characters, yet a friendly, fast-paced prose, with twists in the second half made this a book I enjoyed. Another great weekend read.

Four friends. One luxury getaway. The perfect murder.

French Alps, 1998

Two young men ski into a blizzard… but only one returns.

20 years later

Four people connected to the missing man find themselves in that same resort. Each has a secret. Two may have blood on their hands. One is a killer-in-waiting.

Someone knows what really happened that day.

And somebody will pay.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
