The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Turn of the Key and In a Dark Dark Wood returns with another suspenseful thriller set on a snow-covered mountain.
Getting snowed in at a beautiful, rustic mountain chalet doesn’t sound like the worst problem in the world, especially when there’s a breathtaking vista, a cozy fire, and company to keep you warm. But what happens when that company is eight of your coworkers…and you can’t trust any of them?
When an off-site company retreat meant to promote mindfulness and collaboration goes utterly wrong when an avalanche hits, the corporate food chain becomes irrelevant and survival trumps togetherness. Come Monday morning, how many members short will the team be?

I have really enjoyed reading Ruth Ware’s books over the years. They don’t take much concentration and are wildly entertaining. That being said, there are a lot of characters in One by One that you have to pay attention to in the beginning. Don’t fret! There was a list of characters and their job descriptions in the first chapter that will help you keep everyone straight. This book was just what I needed during this dreary February. It was a contemporary, mindless “who-done-it” that takes place at a ski resort in the French Alps. It was great escapism. I am jealous of all that are going skiing over Winter Break. Be careful- don’t get murdered out in Park City.

I do enjoy reading Ruth Ware’s mysteries, and she reminds me of a modern day Agatha Christie, this particular tale reminiscent of And Then There Were None. This is a quick and fun read – nothing too scary, too offensive, or too violent, just a good ol’ mystery to solve. Enjoy! And don’t ski off-piste!
