In the Dark by Loreth Anne White ~ Book Review

Book Description: 

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.

What grabbed my attention to this book? The book description and that the author is Canadian. I was really excited that the book plot takes place in Western Canada, in the secluded wilderness. I love a good whodunit type stories, especially when it is Clue like. A group of "strangers" are dropped off at a cabin in the woods. Are they truly strangers? How are they all connected? 

I really enjoyed this story, the plot thickening between the secluded guests. What secrets they learn they share, each turning on each other. Who is safe? 

The story is told by each of the characters at the lodge as the plot plays out, then we get to experience homicide detective Mason Deniaud and search and rescue Callie Sutton side as they uncover what has happened to this missing group. Mason and Callie are characters that are very easy to like, enjoying how their relationship builds throughout this story. 

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars and look forward to reading more from this author.
