Just finished A Darkness Absolute, part 2 Rockton series by Kelley Armstrong.

Casey and her fellow Rockton sheriff’s deputy Will chase a cabin-fevered resident into the woods, where they are stranded in a blizzard. Taking shelter in a cave, they discover a former resident who’s been held captive for over a year. When the bodies of two other women turn up, Casey and her colleagues must find out if it’s an outsider behind the killings or if the answer is more complicated than that…before another victim goes missing.

Another scary story, read it in a couple of days.  Lots of crazy plot twists again, very good reading for cold winter nights.
That sounds like a good one! I'll have to look for it.
Make sure you start with the first one, City of the Lost.  It helps explain what the town of Rockton is about.  Our libraries have all five books in the series.  Just finished the 3rd one Thursday, very intense :unsure:

Thanks for the tip!

If listening to an audio book counts, "Running The Light" by Sam Tallent.

Sure it counts! I'm a heavy user of audio books.

David Baldacci, Split Second.
I am not a mystery/detective reader, by any shot. But I read Split Second, and now want to keep reading more.
The writing is great (45 languages?) and didn't notice any typos in a rather long first book.

Now starting Hour Game, two ex Secret Agents take on the world! And want to start their own agency? Cormoran Strike - look out!
Very well written, if not my go-to style of book.

He's got a long list of books,  was very popular at the library where I worked.  He's a type like Cormoran (haven't read the new one yet) but I bet you will like it.

Just finished Watcher in the Woods by Kelley Armstrong, #4 in the Rockton series.  Starts up from the crazy cliffhanger ending from #3. Casey has smuggled her sister into Rockton for help with a patient.  Then an outsider is seen in the forest, spying with binoculars and they are out to find him and stop whatever he is up to.  As usual, I didn't figure out who the baddie was and there was another murder of course.  These books are so good, I have to make sure I have time to read, because once I start I have a hard time stopping.  :D

Yes, I never knew a single thing about him. So many authors?!
But maybe I am starting to read less seriously, more entertainly (not a word, but should be?)

I didn't know a lot about certain authors until I started working at the library.  When people ask for a certain author or say I finished this series, they want you to recommend something new for them.  I really enjoyed that because I learned so much about all kinds of genres I really never read before.  Now that I am retired, I do miss that part of it, keeping up on who has a new book coming out and other trivia.  Goodreads helps me a bit too.  I find I am falling back on certain genres now that I am not so involved in keeping up with the trends.

Finished Alone in the Woods, #5 Rockton.  This was good, not as many twists to the plot but suspenseful nonetheless.  Finding a newborn baby in the snow brings all kinds of troubles for Casey and Dalton.  We learn more about the others groups in the woods: Settlers (people who left Rockton years ago and set up their own settlements) Traders and Hostiles (more settlers that have become more primitive and violent).  Trying to untangle this mystery is their job.  This time I figured out who the killer was but I still enjoyed the story.

Now I am on the wait list at the library for #6.. :eh:

That's very true. I work in a public library, and it's a perfect place to see what people like to read. We update a list of books that are most demanded in our library - both fiction and non-fiction - and sometimes it's almost heart-breaking to tell people that if you want to make a reservation now you'll end up being #754 on the waiting list... Of course we buy in a lot of copies of the popular books but managing a versatile collection is an art of balancing.
