The Winter People is a fascinating mystery thriller that's got all it takes to become the new fan favorite. Jennifer McMahon created a suspenseful, fast-paced, gripping story that will linger on long after you turn the last pages. West Hall is a small town in the middle of nowhere that's always been known for ancient legends and mysterious disappearances. For example, back in 1908, more than one hundred years ago, Sara, an honest working woman, died on her own property a few months after her daughter tragically passed away.
Today, Ruthie, a 19-years-old girl, lives on that same property with her younger sis and mom. Alice, the mother of the two girls, has always wanted to live somewhere far away, off the grid, so to speak, however, when she disappears one day into thin air, Ruthie doesn't really know what to do and where to go.
In a desperate search for any clues as to where her mom could be, Ruthie finds a copy of Sara's diary hidden in her mom's room. She starts reading the diary, hoping to learn about something that could help her find Alice, and that's when she realizes that she's not the only girl who's looking for someone who disappeared. But, at the same time, she could be the first person who can stop this vicious cycle and save her mother.
Jennifer McMahon created a riveting page-turner that's both exciting and blood-chilling. It's one of the greatest mystery thrillers of the year - scary, breathtaking, enthralling and shocking. The author constantly keeps you guessing and second-guessing, and, just when you think you've got it all figured out, she delivers a mighty twist that destroys all of your theories. A truly outstanding novel!
