Don't Let in the Cold
Lottie trusts no one. Friendships fade fast when you’re always moving. People only let you down. So, when her mom remarries, Lottie’s not thrilled to be forced into hanging out with her new nature obsessed step sister, while her mom and new step dad celebrate in Reno. Still, how hard can it be to spend for one night at a ski-cabin in Tahoe?
But that night a solar flare causes a massive black out, stranding them with no cell signal or power. Alex, a cute fast-talking Asian teen, arrives with the first flakes of snow, claiming to be lost, but his dog seems to know its way around the cabin a little too well.
When the trio are forced into the blizzard, Lottie discovers freezing to death isn’t their only worry. Asthma, bears and white-outs take their toll, but that’s nothing compared to being hunted down by Alex’s ‘friends’. If they don’t get what they bribed Alex to deliver, all of their lives are in danger.
After an avalanche of bad decisions, Lottie must get this last one right, and live up to the trust placed in her, even if the life she saves is not her own, or none of them will survive.
