Publisher: Simon & Schuster  (7 Oct. 2014)

Format: Paperback (400 pages)

Source: This book was sent to me


All Britt wanted was a backpacking trip with no fuss and a chance to hook up with her ex-boyfriend, what could possibly stop her dream from coming true? But all it took was a little bit of snow. Freezing and desperate for warmth, Britt and her friend Korbie stumbled across a cabin and in it was two men named Mason and Shawn. Shawn seemed too friendly to be true and Mason appears to be warning Britt; however dark secrets are being laid. Falling in love has never been so dangerous.


This novel is a fiction YA (young adult) book. Having read the Hush Hush series by Becca Fitzpatrick, I was expecting her new work to be even better and Fitzpatrick never disappointed me. Her new work is set in mountains of Wyoming, Idlewilde, a cabin which Korbie`s family owned. Darkness, mystery and love are the themes which kept popping up they added suspense to the novel although without them the novel already seemed dark.

The writing was easy to read and Fitzpatrick`s way of writing drawn me in the moment I picked up the book. The characters were really easy to understand as they were portrayed as to what teenagers in America, if not every teenager, could relate to. For example with the character Britt, she has to work hard but she also notice things a lot (which help her in the book). The setting of this book is beautiful, mountains of snow what’s not to like? Yes thinking about it now might be wonderful for those winter/snow lovers, but for the characters, this is not really paradise.

There`re really things which I disliked about this book as it was a quick read; however I would love to see more of Britt`s father and brother, as they were mentioned quite a few times. Overall I can definitely say that everything was perfect. I cannot wait to read the final version of the book!

Would I recommend this book? Yes, I absolutely will! It is such an amazing book very fast paced, and I fell in love with the characters straight away, I want to know more and if you`re reading this Becca Fitzpatrick please write a squeal! The recommendations goes to those who adored the Hush Hush series as well as the mystery, romance, fantasy, thriller and contemporary lovers.

I rate this book ★★★★★
