4 Stars from me

This put me in mind of ‘The Chalet‘ and it’s fair to say that if you enjoyed The Chalet then you will love this!

Also, is Snoop / Choon a real product? What an amazing business idea if it isn’t!

This is very clever, virtually a locked room murder mystery, with a largely unlikeable cast – I loved it!

The story flips mainly between two of the central characters and you are left trying to guess who (and why) the murderer is as the story unfolds.

One thing is for sure – it doesn’t make me want to go skiing!

Blurb: Getting snowed in at a beautiful, rustic mountain chalet doesn’t sound like the worst problem in the world, especially when there’s a breathtaking vista, a cozy fire, and company to keep you warm. But what happens when that company is eight of your coworkers…and you can’t trust any of them?

When an off-site company retreat meant to promote mindfulness and collaboration goes utterly wrong when an avalanche hits, the corporate food chain becomes irrelevant and survival trumps togetherness. Come Monday morning, how many members short will the team be?
