So I’ve learned that I am a sucker for books with purple and blue covers, and apparently ones with snow as well? Perhaps that is merely the sort of thriller I crave when it gets cold, as there are many believable elements within. Anyway, Hide by Nell Pattison is the latest thriller I decided to dive into.
What would you do if you were trapped in a cabin (in the middle of nowhere, mind you), and you found out that one of your friends was a killer? That is the situation seven friends find themselves in, and it will quickly become a fatal situation.
Hide is a claustrophobic and chilling (literally) thriller novel that perfectly suits those creepy cravings we all feel like the colder months set in. I’ll admit that half the reason I wanted to read it is because of the Agatha Christie vibes, but I’m okay with that!
This book is split into seven perspectives – one for each member of the friend group. It really helps readers get a feel for the situation while feeling just as lost for who could have done it. I personally adore that blend and will never get enough of it!
I’ll admit that there were times where I wanted to smack some common sense into a character but isn’t that always the case during thriller/horrors? You find yourself screaming “don’t go into the basement” or some such nonsense. At least this way, you know you’ve invested in the story.
Hide is the first novel I’ve read by Nell Pattison, but you better believe I’ll be adding her to my list of thriller authors worth keeping an eye on!
