They were only supposed to be on their own for one night. When her mother remarries after an all-too-short courtship, Lottie and her new stepsister must house sit for a night while their parents honeymoon in Reno. Lottie feels out of place at her new stepdad's fancy ski cabin in Tahoe, especially since her lone companion is her new smart and sullen stepsister, Jade, who she's only met briefly once before. And when a solar flare causes a massive blackout-no cell signal or power-Lottie knows they've got a long night ahead of them. Then, in the dark, someone else shows up at the cabin-a cute, fast-talking stranger named Alex with his dog, claiming to be lost and needing shelter from the developing snowstorm. Lottie's suspicions about him grow throughout the night, but when a fireplace malfunction causes a fire, the three of them are forced out into the blizzard and must rely on one another to find shelter and safety.. In the remote, freezing woods with no way to call for help, the wary trio encounters the perils of the wilderness as well as two mysterious young men who seem to know Alex. Now Lottie must decide who she should trust in order to survive.

This YA thriller may be set at the end of October, but the blizzard makes this feel like a wintry read meant for a snowy night! Lottie‘s not looking forward to a night of forced bonding with her new stepsister, Jade, at the remote Tahoe cabin while their parents enjoy a 1-night honeymoon. A solar flare & storm turn this into a survival adventure against not only the elements but also human villains. A pageturner where things go from bad to worse!

Mehso-so

For a survival thriller it was a bit boring. I honestly thought it would be over around 47%, it was simply too long! I did end up enjoying the story, it was just very slow-moving. The narrator was excellent. I would have liked a resolution to the father mystery as well. The characters were fairly likable, but I wouldn't say lovable. I did like that both female MCs had health issues. That added an urgency element as well as a diversity element.
