Bad Call by Stephen Wallenfels

It was supposed to be epic.

During a late-night poker game, tennis teammates Colin, Ceo, Grahame, and Rhody make a pact to go on a camping trip in Yosemite National Park. And poker vows can’t be broken.

So the first sign that they should ditch the plan is when Rhody backs out. The next is when Ceo replaces him with Ellie, a girl Grahame and Colin have never even heard of. And then there’s the forest fire at their intended campsite.
But instead of bailing, they decide to take the treacherous Snow Creek Falls Trail to the top of Yosemite Valley. From there, the bad decisions really pile up.

A freak storm is threatening snow, their Craigslist tent is a piece of junk, and Grahame is pretty sure there’s a bear on the prowl. On top of that, the guys have some serious baggage (and that’s not including the ridiculously heavy ax that Grahame insisted on packing) and Ellie can’t figure out what their deal is.

And then one of them doesn’t make it back to the tent.
Desperate to survive while piecing together what happened, the remaining hikers must decide who to trust in this riveting, witty, and truly unforgettable psychological thriller that reveals how one small mistake can have chilling consequences. @goodreads

When I first read the sampler to the book I thought it sounded awesome and the summary didn't sound too bad either. But unfortunately, this was a "Bad Call" for me.

The story is about a group of people: Collin, Ceo, Grahame and Ellie going out on a camping trip together. Now another friend was supposed to go with them but he backed out. He was the lucky one.

There ends up being fights, fires, snow storms, maybe a bear, an axe and a very strange adventure in my opinion.

I know plenty of people will love this book so pick it up and decide for yourself.

Happy Reading!

  1. Ah man! The synopsis drew me in too! But my reading tastes and yours usually line up, so I'll skip this one as well. Nice review though! :)
