Mini Thoughts

Today is my tour stop for Cover Your Tracks by Daco S. Auffenorde.

Wow this book is intense!! Imagine yourself 8 months pregnant and you’re traveling by train through the mountains when it stops.  A stranger then tells you that there is an avalanche heading down the mountain towards you, and you need to follow him to the last train car to survive.  What would you do?!  I remember being that pregnant, so I would probably cry, ugly cry.  Thankfully and unfortunately our pregnant female character, Margo, is the only one who listens and she along with Nick, the stranger are the only survivors.   Now all alone in the middle of the blizzard the fight for survival is on.  Man versus Nature! Who will win?!

I felt like I was holding my breath the entire 260 pages of the fast paced/intense read!  I felt for Margo because help is not coming, so she places all her trusts in Nick to help her survive.  At first I really liked Nick and his knowledge of what to do in that unimaginable situation.  He tried to save others, but nobody would listen.  Then Nick’s other side comes to light.  Thankfully we do get the background of how he became the man he is today, but I wouldn’t want to be stranded with him in the middle of a storm anymore!

If you’re looking for your next heart pounding read, look no further!

Synopsis

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.
