Editor's note: This giveaway is now closed.

A trip to a remote cabin can be a needed break from daily stressors and an endless stream of responsibilities. Doesn’t sitting next to a warm fireplace, drinking a cozy cup of tea, and watching the snow slowly fall outside your window sound comforting?

That's...not exactly what's in store for Christa, her boyfriend, and a group of strangers in an abandoned hunting cabin after a blizzard forces them to wait out the storm.

Perhaps it wouldn’t have been too horrible of a detour if not for the fact that the following morning, the group finds their missing tour guide’s severed head outside the cabin. It appears like someone in the group has found their own twisted way of fighting boredom in this “fast-paced thriller aimed at readers who enjoy a hunt” (Kirkus Reviews). 

This month, five lucky people will win a signed copy of Dead of Winter, the exhilarating thriller by USA Today-bestselling author Darcy Coates.

About the Book


Dead of Winter

By Darcy Coates

Christa has always been anxious but, at this moment, life seems oh so hopeful with her hand in Kiernan's as the tour bus climbs a narrow road up the side of the Rockies. Blue skies turn bitterly cold mid-afternoon as a blizzard pushes the group of 8 strangers out of their bus and to take shelter in an abandoned hunting cabin.

Deep in the night, their tour guide goes missing…only to be discovered the following morning, his severed head impaled on a large pine tree outside the cabin. Eight drops to seven and it becomes clear that someone in the group is killing for sport.

"The plot is squarely in the tradition of locked-room mysteries...Coates is also a horror author, and there's a good dollop of that genre woven through this novel of high suspense. Keep a cat or two on your lap when reading this one." ―First Clue
