One By One: An unputdownable psychological thriller Kindle Edition
One by one, they will get what they deserve...
"I stayed up all night reading this book and loved it!" --Amazon
A night spent sleeping on dirt and leaves is not how Claire Matchett expected to spend her vacation.
She thought this would be a break from the stresses of work and raising her young children. A chance to repair her damaged marriage. A week of hiking and hot tubs with two other couple friends. It sounded like heaven.
Then Claire’s minivan breaks down on a lonely dirt road. With no cell reception, the group has no choice but to hike the rest of the way to their hotel. But it turns out the woods aren’t as easy to navigate as they thought.
Hours later, they are lost. Hopelessly lost.
And as they navigate deeper into the woods, the members of their party are struck down mysteriously one by one. Has a wild animal been hunting them? Or is the hunter one of them?
But as more time passes, one thing becomes clear:
Only one of them will return home alive.
"A brilliantly written psychological thriller that has plenty of clues in it but not enough to really catch on to how it shall end.The dialog and humor between the characters is fantastic." -Sharon, Goodreads review
"What can I say but 'I LOVED IT'! I have yet to read a book by this author that I don't love. Her writing style alone is so engaging and her characters so vivid that once I start reading one of her books I can't put it down. This book was no different. And the twist was great, as they always are. If you like a story with a shocking turn you will definitely need to read this one!" -Barbara, Goodreads review

What can I say but I love Freida McFadden's books and this one was right up there with the rest...well almost. I have yet to read a book by this author that I don’t love. Her writing style alone is so engaging and her characters so vivid that once I start reading one of her books I can’t put it down. This book was no different. Her books are written as if a friend is telling you an engaging story. And the twist was great, as they always are. If you like a story with a shocking turn you will definitely need to read this one! However, i wasn't a big fan of the entire book centering around them being in the woods....for me that was a little boring....also the fact they couldn't find their way out...hmmmm for three days...that was a little unbelievable. But all in all a good book with a very nice twist indeed!
I’m not going to rehash the plot of the book since you’ve probably already read what it’s about, but the characters are so fleshed out in this short book that I felt like I knew them. Claire, the main character, has a great sense of humor that pops up at just the right times.
This review could be extremely long with all the praises I could extol OR I could make it short and sweet and just say you will not be disappointed in this Freida McFadden book. Do not mistake it for the book of the exact same name by Ruth Ware, which was convoluted, very predictable, hard to follow and the many characters were impossible to keep straight.
“One By One” by Freida McFadden is awesome! An exciting, hard-to-figure-out thriller!
Another great book by this author. The story follows a woman names Claire who goes on a getaway trip w her husband Noah, bff Lyndsay & boyfriend, and her husbands bff Jack & wife. They get lost though and one by one they all start dying and\or disappear. Someone or something is hunting them as they try to navigate their way to safety. The present is interspersed occasionally w chapters of an anonymous persons past which lends some creepy hints. It was pretty good if not a few times "how can they not tell" and when things come to light, why don't they carry on w that knowledge. One thing that wasn't explained or that maybe I missed, was the way everyone was sleeping so soundly; the husband said he tasted something chalky in one water but what about later w the second night? I probably missed it but I'm curious. That aside, I loved the whole murder mystery angle that was very reminiscent of Agatha Christie stories. It was fun making guesses and then seeing if I was right!

First, you don't need a phone signal for GPS. Then, who follows an impassable dirt road to an inn? They surely want their guest to arrive safely... It can't clearly be the right road, so why keep following it and the unreliable map that led you on it?
There are a few other things that made me wonder but I don't want to spoil anything.
And yes, some statements were repetitive (I want to see my kids, Warner is so good looking...)
But hey, the twists and guessing was good, although I guessed that 'anonymous' might not be the obvious who we were made to believe.
It was exciting and gripping I’m now a huge fan and plan on reading everything she has written,if they are anything like this one then I can’t wait!
