The Chalet - Catherine Cooper || Blog Tour


French Alps, 1998

Two young men ski into a blizzard… but only one returns.

20 years later

Four people connected to the missing man find themselves in that same resort. Each has a secret. Two may have blood on their hands. One is a killer-in-waiting.

Someone knows what really happened that day.

And somebody will pay.

An exciting new debut for anyone who loves Ruth Ware, Lucy Foley, and C.L. Taylor

I was gifted my copy for the blog tour.

This was so so good! Even more so than i expected it to be. In 1998 two men go skiing in a blizzard and only one is ever found. 20 years later, four people who are somehow connected to the missing man end up on holiday in the resort, and two of those have blood on their hands and someone is after revenge.

Told over a timeline of the past, present and then from a third perspective we start to discover what happened on that fateful day in 1998. I really enjoy a past and present timeline where we discover what happened at first sight but over time we start to see there really is more than the initial narrative suggests.

I really enjoyed discovering the characters and their hidden secrets, why they behaved the way they did and i especially enjoyed discovering how they were all connected thats the one piece of the puzzle that took me the longest and was well worth the wait.

Overall this was a thrilling exciting debut that is the perfect winter thriller. Its tense, dramatic and so in depth. It was carefully weaved together over a long timeline that gave the reader a really enjoyable experience.
