A Chilling Encounter in a Blizzard in the Tetons

Britt and her friend, Korbie, set out for a spring break camping trim in the Tetons where Korbie's family owns a luxurious cabin. Britt has been training for a trek through the mountains. Her ex-boyfriend, Calvin, is Korbie's brother. He loves to hike the Tetons and Britt wonders if that's the reason she is so committed to this hiking trip.

The girls set off in sunshine, but as they drive into the mountains, a blizzard forms. They abandon the car and set off to find shelter. Two handsome men are already in the cabin they discover. Korbie is all for flirting, but Britt senses something is very wrong. She met one of the men when she was getting a slurpie before they left. He was friendly to the point of flirting, but now he's cold and distant, trying to shove her out the door.

The mood of this novel is very dark. The author does a good job using the blizzard to heighten the tension between the girls and the men in the cabin. The plot is filled with twists and the suspense keeps you wondering until the very end.

While the focus of the book is on the danger and the blizzard, there is also a romantic interest. Calvin is already at the family camp, and Britt is hoping he'll come looking for them when they don't show up. I enjoyed the book. It's a YA novel, but it can also be enjoyed by anyone who likes a fast paced thriller.

I reviewed this book for the Amazon Vine Program.
