The Cabin by Natasha Preston

There may only be one killer, but no one is innocent in this new thriller from Natasha Preston, author of The Cellar and Awake.

When Mackenzie treks to a secluded cabin in the woods with six friends, she expects a fun weekend of partying, drinking, and hookups. But when they wake to find two of their own dead and covered in blood, it's clear there's a killer among them.

As the police try to unravel the case, Mackenzie launches her own investigation. Before long secrets start to emerge, revealing a sinister web of sins among the original seven friends. The killer is still free. Every one of them is a suspect. And Mackenzie starts to realize that no one is innocent…



They think they're invincible.
They think they can do and say whatever they want.
They think there are no consequences.
They've left me no choice.
It's time for them to pay for their sins.

From that prologue and the blurb, I thought I was going to love this book. It sounded like a B scary movie and I love those. As most of my friends on goodreads know, I very rarely 1 star a book, some 2 stars, but I always try to pick books I think I will like, but I missed the mark on this one.

I liked a couple of the character but even they started to get on my nerves.

Mackenzie, Aaron, Courtney, Megan, Kyle, Josh and Blake are all going out to Josh's cabin to hang out for a couple of days. They were all still sort of reeling over losing two of their best friends (Gigi and Tilly) in a car accident several months ago.

I was thinking, a cabin in the woods with a killer! Yes! NO..

There was a murder in the cabin but everything else takes place outside the cabin. After the cops came and took the bodies away, everyone went back to their lives. All of them were scarred even more than before.

Mackenzie decides to do a little investigating herself. She doesn't want to believe that anyone she knows or cares about killed others they cared about! Mackenzie does start to unravel all kinds of crazy stories. It seems her friends have lots of secrets.

When I find out the reasons behind the killings I had a hard time trying to figure out what I was feeling. On the one hand, I can see how the person would want to kill them. And I say that only because of the way there was some mocking going on with certain deaths. But it still wasn't all that exciting for me. And I so very much wanted to like this book!!! I think it was more of the - YOU DID IT - NO YOU DID IT - WAIT GO BACK, YOU DID IT.

The book did remind me of some books I read and loved as a child so don't let anyone's review deter you from reading a book. You might just find your own gem! 

**I would like to thank Netgalley and Sourcebooks Fire for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.**
