I don’t want to spoil this one, so I will skip my usual summary and try to keep anything that gives it away out of the review. I will post the blurb at the bottom.

This one came recommended to me in KU, and it hooked me from the start. Normally when there is a large cast of characters, it can get confusing keeping track. The only time that happened for me was when I had to put the book down for a while. But when I picked it up, it all quickly came back to me and was easy to follow along. White did a great job of establishing their personalities right off.

The setup of a luxury resort gone awry creates the perfect, creepy atmosphere. Especially because things go wrong right from the start. I liked the way White told the story in alternating timelines and narrators, from members of the party headed out to the resort, to Callie and Mason who are investigating what has happened. I know some people didn’t like that, but I love when an author can split a book into two, and White did it very well.

The storytelling here is wonderful. From the characters to the setting, and the mystery, it’s a fast-paced thriller from the start and a super fun read.

In the Dark is available on Amazon for $4.99, it’s enrolled in KU.

Read this review on Amazon, Goodreads, and Bookbub.

Blurb:

A secluded mountain lodge. The perfect getaway. So remote no one will ever find you.

The promise of a luxury vacation at a secluded wilderness spa has brought together eight lucky guests. But nothing is what they were led to believe. As a fierce storm barrels down and all contact with the outside is cut off, the guests fear that it’s not a getaway. It’s a trap.

Each one has a secret. Each one has something to hide. And now, as darkness closes in, they all have something to fear—including one another.

Alerted to the vanished party of strangers, homicide cop Mason Deniaud and search and rescue expert Callie Sutton must brave the brutal elements of the mountains to find them. But even Mason and Callie have no idea how precious time is. Because the clock is ticking, and one by one, the guests of Forest Shadow Lodge are being hunted. For them, surviving becomes part of a diabolical game.
