Britt Pheiffer 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.

Britt is forced to guide the men off the mountain, and 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 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, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally?

Review: I have read two of the Hush, Hush books by Fitzpatrick before and loved them. (I have a weakness for angels and demons.) A friend of mine from back home in Colorado recommended this book to me about two years ago. I add this to my list and it stayed there for a while obviously. This Christmas I was assigned a book buddy in one of my groups. My buddy sent me this along with a cute bookmark. I decided since I have this now that I need to get to read it.

On the way to Wichita, KS. I brought this along for the hour drive to get started. At first it started out a little slow for me, but it soon picked up.

Britt wants to prove to her ex boyfriend that she can hike the Teton Range without help. She has been training for the last eight months. On her way up with her friend Korbie to Korbie’s parents mountain home, they get stuck in a freak blizzard. When they can’t drive any further and the storm not letting up, they hike an hour till they find a cabin.

Inside the cabin dwell two men, Mason and Shaun. (I can’t remember how she had it spelled his name.) Mason tries to turn the girls away but Shaun invites them in.

I loved the story. It flowed well. Yes it started out a little slow for me but it soon picked up. This is a little romance but it’s not till after halfway and doesn’t really play a big part. At first I thought I knew who the killer is but then after half way I had to start to rethink about who was the killer. Certain things weren’t adding up and I had to recheck things. I will definitely read another book by Fitzpatrick.
