Shiver

 Shiver 


Author: Allie Reynolds

Publisher: G.P Putnam’s  Sons

Year: 2021

My grandmother always said death comes in threes. 

The same can be said for locked room thrillers set in remote mountain locations. First there was Ruth Ware’s One by One. Then Sarah Pearse’s The Sanatorium.
And now comes Shiver by Allie Reynolds. All in less than a year of each other. Weird how coincidences or publishing works! 😀

In Reynolds’ debut, five former friends are brought together to a French Alps ski resort. No staff are around and they can’t get back down the mountain. Disturbing things start happening and long buried secrets and lies are revealed about the ten year old disappearance of the former mean girl of their clique. 

The story unfolds across two times lines- present day at deserted ski resort and ten years ago at the same ski resort when the friends were competitive half pipe snowboards training and competing at the resort. The author herself is a former professional snowboarder so her knowledge of the sport lends authenticity to the story. 

The characters were interesting and the story’s pace kept the action moving. This is a solid debut and I liked that it was a female-centered sports-related thriller. Perfect for readers who enjoy locked room mysteries, fans of Harlan Coben’s Myron Bolitar series, or snowboarding enthusiasts. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

Happy Tuesday! What’s everyone reading today?
