One by One
by Ruth Ware.
Yes. She churns them out. This one takes place at a boutique chalet hotel in the French Alps. Off-piste skiing adventures and lots of salopettes. Murder & mayhem.
The Guest List by Lucy Foley is a better version of the genre. However, Ruth Ware’s story lines around modern technology, like the “smart house” in The Turn of the Key and the Snoop app in this one are interesting to learn about.
The Snoop app lets you know who is listening to what playlist song in real time. I thought the chapter headings would have had more meaning than they did in terms of the music choices and numbers of snoopers and subscribers. The cast of characters is diverse and fun. Always hated skiing and ski resorts, so there was that. Lots of silly plot holes. Like just lock the door!
Could see this being made into a Netflix mini-series or movie for its setting.
