Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Woah!! This book was all kinds of creepy with different sub plots linked in a macabre way. I loved it!!
Detective Megan Carpenter had only one case to begin with to find a sister and her husband. Searching for them led her to a charred body and then neighbors Regina and Amy with their own story which is so horrendous that you would have to read it to believe it. Megan too had a past which chilled me completely. OMG!!
My first book by author Gregg Olsen, I was simply blown away by this master game planner who could put the scenes in such a way that I couldn’t look away from my kindle even when I wanted to. The story took me by my throat making me gasp every few chapters.
I had no idea how Megan remained sane after seeing and going through so much horror with the victims. I was glad her personal story was left for book 2 as I wouldn’t have been able to stomach it. Evil had never been better written that what this author did with the hints of disturbed minds. I was completely shaken up, thrilled to the core.
Snow Creek was both a compelling place in its worldbuilding and a captivating read in its story. This had something extra, a zing in the story as compared to other police procedurals. Wow!!
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Throughout his career, Gregg Olsen has demonstrated an ability to create a detailed narrative that offers readers fascinating insights into the lives of people caught in extraordinary circumstances.
A #1 New York Times bestselling author, Olsen has written ten nonfiction books, ten novels, and contributed a short story to a collection edited by Lee Child.
Footprints were scattered about like fallen leaves. She looked down into the ravine, and once more her lungs filled with fear. A body, blackened and motionless lay splayed out in the bushes.
Detective Megan Carpenter is no stranger to evil. Escaping the horrors of her old life, she’s vowed never to let anyone hurt her or those she loves ever again. Joining the small police force in Jefferson County’s Port Townsend, Megan is determined to get every victim of a crime the justice they deserve.
So when Ruth Turner walks into the Sheriff’s office claiming her sister Ida Watson has been missing for over a month, Megan’s instincts tell her that she needs to do more than just file a report.
Arriving at a secluded farmhouse in the hills above Snow Creek, she finds Ida’s teenage children alone and frightened.
Then a few days later, close to the Watsons’ home, the blackened body of a woman is discovered in an abandoned pickup truck.
Megan must unravel the disturbing secrets of the isolated Snow Creek community if she is to catch the killer.
But Megan has dark secrets of her own too…
Hidden in the back of her closet is a box of tapes containing every single recording of her therapy sessions with Doctor Albright over thirteen years ago. As Megan begins to play the tapes, she’s taken straight back to her terrifying childhood, back to the time she was a kid called Rylee, fighting to survive.
Can Megan finally confront the past she’s spent years trying to block out and will listening to her own painful story help her solve the complex case she is now entangled in?
