Authors & publishers:
I've decided to stop accepting review copies. The downside of getting buried in free books is that reading increasingly becomes an obligatory act. After some seven years of blogging books, it's time for me to return to the simple pleasure of reading only the books I want to read, when I want to read them.

Loreth Anne White, In the Dark

  Amazon  

In the Dark is a story about what happens when a group of people is put in a real-life Survivor-type situation. Eight guests and their pilot are invited to go on an all-expenses-paid trip to a secluded lodge in British Columbia, but the lodge is not the luxury destination they expected, and it turns out that the various guests share some dark ties with one another. Their story at the lodge is overtly patterned on the Agatha Christie novel And Then There Were None. Creepy stuff happens. Chapters detailing the dark goings-on at the lodge alternate with an account of the search and rescue operation that would occur later. This is lighter fare, but still not very light. It pairs grieving RCMP officer Mason Deniaud, who's new to the wilderness of Kluhane Bay, with grieving search and rescue expert Callie Sutton. There's potential for romance here, but she's off-limits for now, which of course adds some welcome tension to their relationship. Anyway, these two parts of the story mesh together nicely. The only boring bit was at the very end, when there was too much explication. I don't know if there's a sequel in the works, but I think the relationship between Mason and Callie was interesting enough that I'd stick around for a second Kluhane Bay novel.
