About the book: Following the trauma of her estranged husband’s untimely death, Emma Lowell is happy with the life she has rebuilt for herself. She’s engaged to a wonderful man and anticipates a fresh start, free from her troubled past. Only one persistent obstacle remains: Margaret Lowell, her former mother-in-law. Margaret continues to be a demanding presence in Emma’s life, and her requests have become increasingly disconcerting. When Margaret asks Emma to accompany her on a sentimental journey to the family’s mountain cabin, the young woman reluctantly agrees. After all, her fiancé is out of town. No one will miss her. Emma could never have suspected the horror that awaits in the snow-bound cabin, for beneath Margaret Lowell’s elderly façade lies a sinister and terrifying nature—and a plot born of insanity. Alarmed by the dark plan that unfolds, Emma struggles to escape the isolated cabin in a chilling game of cat and mouse. As the danger escalates, and with little hope of rescue, Emma must engage in a battle of wills if she is to avoid becoming the final piece in Margaret’s twisted puzzle . . .
My review: Wow, this book was super suspenseful! I loved the way the plot of this book was. I really liked Emma, but she really needed to learn to tell her ex-mother-in-law "no" sometimes. I think she did learn that by the end of the book. I also liked her fiance Landon, it was obvious how much he cared for her and how concerned he was when she was missing. I really thought that Emma's friends, Jess and Cassie, were amazing. They went above and beyond in trying to figure out just what had happened to Emma. And Margaret, wow! She was a terribly evil and really well-written sinister character. She gave me the creeps! It probably didn't help that I read a great deal of this book at night in the dark on my kindle.
I thought that the plot was really well done, it kept me guessing and I didn't want to put it down. The ending was great too! I love Michelle Ashman Bell's suspense books and I can't wait to read the next one!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
