finished reading

I picked this up after reading The Gal's review, and my interest was piqued.  I love a locked door mystery and this didn't disappoint!  So many suspectable characters--everybody has a secret!  The setting and claustrophobic atmosphere of the book worked and you could feel the nerves of the guests fraying as they are cut off from the outside world, from electricity and heat, and begin turning on each other.  There were a few slow parts but overall the story worked.

I was not fond of the audio narrator.

From the publisher:
A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway . . . but when the storm hits, no one is getting away

It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery.

So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in and try to make the best of it.

Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic.

Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive the storm--and one another.
