Another great thriller!

Wylie is a true crime writer staying at a remote cabin to finish her latest book. A huge snowstorm is raging outside when she encounters a small child who will not speak. Who is this child and why are they alone outside in a snowstorm?

The book also flashes back to the 1990s when the crime Wylie is currently writing about occurred. That is another mystery – who committed that crime and why?

This is the kind of thriller where I really can’t tell you much more about it without spoilers. Just trust me when I tell you that the twists are crazy. And the last part was so suspenseful, my stomach was in knots. Heather has a long backlist – I can’t wait to read more of her books!… (more)

This is a solid 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for me! It had everything I look for in a psychological thriller. 3 different scenarios going on all at once…. past, present and the other you will have to read to find out. How they came together and form what this story is was brilliant. Twists and turns and even a holy crap moment for good measure. A definite great read!
