When 17-year-old Amanda Christie is invited to a cousins-only weekend retreat at her aunt's Austin, Texas, estate, she doesn't know what to expect. She soon finds though, that the weekend will be anything but boring. One of the guests is responsible for the death of Amanda's uncle and when a dangerous storm traps the teens inside the secluded mansion, Amanda becomes determined to uncover the killer. But when their cell phones go missing and guests begin to disappear, Amanda realizes that the killer isn't finished. With time running out and no way of knowing who to trust, she must either uncover the murderer or risk being the next victim.


This was a thrilling read. I can honestly say I had no clue as to who the killer was until it was revealed. Gauget wrote the story like any other mysery author would. She threw me off track and I didn't even know it.

The setting was described amazingly. I felt creeped out just reading about it. It didn't help that I was reading at night though.

Each of the character brought different clues and suspicions to the table. I was completely wrapped up in the story.
