agenda by pushing a lucrative but contentious buyout offer, tensions simmer and loyalties are tested. The storm brewing inside the chalet is no match for the one outside, however, and a devastating avalanche leaves the group cut off from all access to the outside world. Even worse, one Snooper hadn’t made it back from the slopes when the avalanche hit.
As each hour passes without any sign of rescue, panic mounts, the chalet grows colder, and the group dwindles further…one by one.

My Rating: 4 Stars
Tropes: Murder Mystery | Thriller | Suspense
If you want to keep cool in the hot summer heat, then make sure to pick up One by One by Ruth Ware- this book will most definitely bring on the chills! In Ruth’s latest novel, she carefully navigates a “locked room” style mystery novel as the characters are all trapped on in a chalet in the Alps after an avalanche. Ware carefully and methodically builds the tension as one by one, these characters are killed off by an unknown person who isn’t revealed until the shocking end. I know some readers who read early copies of this novel figured out “who-dun-it” fairly early on, but I was so consumed with the detailed writing and the way everything panes out that it slipped right past me. I’d say that’s a winner and Ware succeeded big time!
This is a snappy thriller that’s quick to get into and easy to navigate as the chapters are short and the plot is intense. I found no problem with reading this book in one sitting and that’s not only due to the fantastic writing (I honestly loved this book; the setting, the plot, etc.) but the quick paced scenes that play out like a movie.
I encourage readers who have enjoyed the authors previous novels to give this one a try despite the varying reviews by other readers. I don’t think this book will be a favorite of everyone’s (not all books are!), but it’s sure to be a hit among others. I personally recommend it!
