One by One by Ruth Ware

A thriller set in an avalanche wrecked chalet

Synopsis: The employees of a billion dollar tech company called Snoop go on a retreat to a mountain chalet. They get stranded by an avalanche and people start to get murdered one-by-one. Will they discover who the killer is before they are all dead? What motive does the killer have?

My thoughts/feelings: I could not stop reading this book. I will admit that the plot line of a group of people getting stranded in a remote house and murdered is not completely original. However, this not take away from my enjoyment of the book. I could not stop reading and my blood was pumping towards the end as things got intense!

Content warning: "Fuck" is said on pretty much every page. I counted over 100 uses of this word alone with a ton of other swear words. I found that to be a bit excessive, but it didn't take away my enjoyment of the story although it might take away from other's enjoyment of the book.

I have previously read Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware. I received it in a #onceuponabookclub box. That book was a "meh" read for me. I didn't love it. I didn't hate it. But I have many friends who told me not to give on this author. I was gifted The Death of Mrs. Westaway for Christmas and although I have yet to read it, this new book by Ruth Ware has made me eager to jump into that one!

If you like a fast paced, exciting thriller, I would definitely recommend this book.

Favorite Quotes:
