"A remote lodge in upstate New York is the perfect winter wonderland getaway... until the bodies start piling up. It's winter in the Catskills and the weather outside is frightful, but Mitchell's Inn is so delightful! The cozy lodge nestled deep in the woods is perfect for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. The Inn boasts spacious old rooms with huge wood-burning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or just curling up with a book and someone you love. 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 for the long haul. The power's down but they've got candles, blankets and firewood--a genuine rustic experience! Soon, though, a body turns up--surely an accident. When a second body appears, they start to panic. Then they find a third body. Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. They can't leave, and with no cell service, there's no prospect of getting the police in until the weather loosens its icy grip. The weekend getaway has turned deadly. For some couples, it's their first time away. For others, it will be their last. And there's nothing they can do about it but huddle in and hope they can survive the storm."-- Provided by publisher.

A fantastic murder mystery that reminds me of classic Agatha Christie who-done-its.

Ten guests arrive at a remote Inn during a snow storm. When an ice storm seals everyone in for a cold, dark weekend things get terrifying as someone begins a murder spree picking them off one by one.

Tension mounts as people suspect each other and staying awake and alert is the only defence.

When the psychopath is revealed it was a complete surprise!
