ESCAPE WAS NEVER AN OPTION
Charly Highsmith is a survivor. Abandoned by her parents, she spent her teens looking after her autistic brother on the bitter streets of Denver, Colorado, with nothing but a jacket and a backpack.
But things are better now. Charly and Jacob live in a two-bedroom apartment near a mall, and with the passing of their long-lost father, they've inherited a cabin high in the Rocky Mountains. Charly's eager to go there. Relive the good times she had as a child, running through the forest with Jacob and her cousins.
Amanda the Overachiever. Cam the Recluse.
But when they arrive, the cabin isn't empty.
Barry the Millionaire. Kennedy the Social Media Magnet. Randall the Hunter.
Standing by the fireplace, Charly sees that look in her neurodivergent brother's eyes. There are too many people. He's going to run. He's going to burst into the unforgiving snowstorm, sprint around the frozen lake, and hide in the forest like he did when they were young.
So much for reliving the good times.
Randall the Hunter goes to the window. Opens the curtains. The blizzard rages outside. He says no one is leaving. He says nothing will stop the hunt. Nothing will stop the excursion.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC.
Wow. The twist and turns in this one got me. Charley and Jacob are trying to survive what turns into a road trip from hell.
And the twist at the end I kind of wondered if it was going to happen with Lance (trying to avoid spoilers) but I was still surprised when it did.
