Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

Britt’s plans for this trip consisted of relaxing with her best friend Korbie and hiking alone along the Teton Range. However as the girls are driving up the mountain to Idlewild, Korbie’s family cabin they are caught in a huge white out snowstorm. Britt knows that if they keep driving they will run the risk of her car breaking down, or driving off the side of the mountain. So they decide to just pull over to the side of the road and wait the storm out. However soon they realize that if they stay in the car they will likely freeze to death. The only option they have now is to get out of the car and try to find a cabin close by. Soon the girls will come to regret this decision. They are elated when they finally stumble upon a cabin, and they are even happy to see the two men inside, Shaun and Mason. Britt almost immediately realizes something is wrong, Shaun is easily angered and Mason seems to be on edge. And then Shaun pulls out a gun, and he tells the girls that he will kill them if they don’t help them get off of the mountain. Then it all clicks for Britt, these must be the two men who are responsible for the murders of the local women, and she and Korbie will be next if they cant figure a way out. It is up to Britt to figure out how to get off of the mountain alive. With murderers, Kidnappers, and a huge snowstorm the odds are seemingly against her. Will Britt manage to get off of the mountain with her life? Find out in Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick.

This is one of my favorite books that I have read in quite sometime. This book kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. Usually I am not a big mystery or thriller reader, but this book is the exception. If you’re a fan of romance, don’t worry, this book has plenty of that too!

The overall quality of this books is high, the writing is wonderful, and there are no incredibly obvious plot twists. This is a book that will keep the reader engaged and constantly trying to figure out what is going to happen next. The cover of this book is also worth mentioning, it is very intriguing and eye-catching, and it is one that will definitely appeal to teen readers. This book while categorized as teen fiction can/will appeal to adult readers as well.

To rate this book I would give it a solid 4 out of 5 when it comes to quality, and a 3 out of 5 in terms of popularity. So overall I would give this book a 7 out of 10. Honestly this is a great book that with a bit of a push could appeal to a large number of readers.
