A Read & Review Club Review: Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick

The CHB Read & Review Club is a chance for high school and middle school students who enjoy reading to share the joy of reading with others through reviewing and recommending books. As a bookshop, we often receive special review copies of books in advance of their release dates so that we can review them. However, since we can only read so many books and we value the thoughts and opinions of other readers, CHB is recruiting high school and middle school students who would like to read and review advance reader copies (or arcs) of middle grade and young adult books that we receive, and we'll be posting their reviews on the Read & Review Club Blog!

Samantha B. (15) is a Read & Review Club member, and she has written a review of Becca Fitzpatrick's new book, Black Ice! From the author of the Hush, Hush saga comes a new thriller: Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick. From the publisher’s summary: “Britt Pheiffer has trained to backpack the Teton Range, but she isn't prepared when her ex-boyfriend, who still haunts her every thought, wants to join her. Before Britt can explore her feelings for Calvin, an unexpected blizzard forces her to seek shelter in a remote cabin, accepting the hospitality of its two very handsome occupants – but these men are fugitives, and they take her hostage. Britt is forced to guide the men off the mountain, and knows she must stay alive long enough for Calvin to find her. The task is made even more complicated when Britt finds chilling evidence of a series of murders that have taken place there...and in uncovering this, she may become the killer's next target. But nothing is as it seems, and everyone is keeping secrets, including Mason, one of her kidnappers. His kindness is confusing Britt. Is he an enemy? Or an ally?”

Check out what Read & Review Club Member Samantha has to say about the book: Black Ice is amazing! I was hooked by the first page. Fitzpatrick really knows how to make her characters come to life and make you feel what they are feeling. The ending was not what I expected, but I was pleasantly surprised. This book is fantastic, gruesome, intense, and heart-stopping; I could not put it down! I didn’t want to sleep until I finished this book. I was up from dusk till dawn reading to see what would happen to Britt Pfeiffer! Would Calvin, her ex-boyfriend who haunts her thoughts, find her before it was too late? Mason was absolutely perfect in a kidnapper-but-awfully-kind way. I had trouble trying to figure out if he was Britt’s enemy or ally. I could only hope he was an ally when Britt makes a discovery that could make her a serial killer’s next target! You will not regret buying this book. If you loved Hush, Hush, you’ll love Black Ice. This novel is perfect! A thriller with just the right amount of romance, Black Ice is going to grip you and not let go until the ride is over.

Thanks to Samantha for her review!
