On the blog today I have a review for Cover Your Tracks by Daco S. Auffenorde on tour with Suzy Approved Book Tours!
Release Date: October 20, 2020
About The Book:
Margo Fletcher, eight months pregnant, is traveling by train from Chicago to Spokane, her childhood home. While passing through an isolated portion of the Rockies in blizzard conditions, the train unexpectedly brakes. Up ahead, deadly snow from a massive avalanche plummets down the mountain. Despite the conductor’s order for the passengers to stay seated, former Army Ranger Nick Eliot insists that survival depends on moving to the back of the train. Only Margo believes him. They take refuge in the last train car, which Nick heroically uncouples in time to avoid the avalanche. The rest of the train is hurled down the mountainside and is soon lost forever in a blanket of snow. Margo and Nick, the sole survivors, are stranded in the snowstorm without food, water, or heat. Rescuers might not arrive for days.
When the weather turns violent again, the pair must flee the shelter of the passenger car and run for their lives into the wilderness. They must fend off the deadly cold as well as predatory wild animals foraging for food. We learn that both Margo and Nick have secrets that have brought them together and threaten to destroy them.
Cover Your Tracks is a chilling story of love and hate, the devastating power of nature, and the will to survive.
Miss W’s Review:
Cover Your Tracks was quite the thrilling read! I do love a novel that is written in dual perspectives, for me personally I get to see the whole story more than only one perspective. We meet Margo who is a VERY pregnant doctor and Nick who is former military who both are traveling on a passenger train to Washington state. There is an avalanche and everyone perishes except Margo and Nick. That credit goes to Nick as he knew to run to the back of the train. I found the dual timeline interesting as we learn more about Margo and Nick’s pasts as they were trying to survive in the wilderness. Two strangers on a train to a WHOLE new twisted level. I enjoyed the excellent descriptions of the scenery and outdoors. The characters were well written. I didn’t like Nick, but I am pretty sure I wasn’t supposed to. This is a page turner you won’t want to put down.

It sounded great until I read your comment, ” I didn’t like Nick, but I am pretty sure I wasn’t supposed to.” I’m pretty spooked now but you gave it a four out of five so I’m sure I’ll enjoy this book, Cover Your Tracks. The title alone was my warning. Thanks for the good review!!
