Blurb (from Goodreads):
There may only be one killer, but no one is innocent in this new thriller from Natasha Preston, author of The Cellar and Awake.

When Mackenzie treks to a secluded cabin in the woods with six friends, she expects a fun weekend of partying, drinking, and hookups. But when they wake to find two of their own dead and covered in blood, it's clear there's a killer among them.

As the police try to unravel the case, Mackenzie launches her own investigation. Before long secrets start to emerge, revealing a sinister web of sins among the original seven friends. The killer is still free. Every one of them is a suspect. And Mackenzie starts to realize that no one is innocent…

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Cabin“They’re dead. They’re dead! No, no, no, no!”

This was a YA mystery story, in which 2 teens were murdered in a cabin in the woods.

Mackenzie was an okay character, and I could understand why she didn’t want to believe that one of her friends was capable of murder. She did stand up and try and find the murderer herself though, even if she did put herself in danger because of it.

The storyline in this was about Mackenzie finding two of her friends murdered in the cabin in which they were staying, and trying to figure out which of her friends had done it. I had no idea that this book was a re-write though, of the previously published ‘Covert’, and I’d have been pretty annoyed if I’d already read that previous to this. I did enjoy the mystery in this though, and it did take me a while to work out who the killer was.
We did also get a bit of romance between Mackenzie and the dead boy’s brother, and this did take the front seat at times.

The ending to this was a bit messy, and we got thrown a bit of misinformation, and then a cliff-hanger type ending which I didn’t really appreciate.

  1. Oh no! I HATE cliffhangers when you don't know they are coming. Great that you included that in your review, because this is a book I have seen around and would like to read. Now...
