Ellie Christie is more than ready for a new chapter. She's always dreamed of running her family's historic bookshop, the Book Chalet, with her sister Meg, and after the last few years, returning to Last Word - a peaceful, Swiss-style hamlet nestled in the Colorado mountains and accessible only by ski gondola - seems like the perfect solution.

And it is, until a deadly blizzard blows through, and
a man is found dead on the gondola. Conditions worsen as the police open their investigation, and soon the town is left stranded with a murderer in their midst.

Ellie and Meg may not actually be related to their favourite novelist, but they
do know a lot about solving mysteries and when the police start to close in on their friends, the Christies decide to act before the killer turns the page one last time . . .

Cosy up and escape to the Colorado mountains in this witty, addictive and unputdownable series debut. Fans of Agatha Christie, Victoria Walters and Fiona Leitch will be hooked from the very first page.
