Editorial Reviews


One of PopSugar and Bustle's "Most Anticipated Books of January"

“[A] gripping debut thriller… Reynolds writes with the same fast-paced intensity of an energy drink-fueled trip down the slopes. Alongside its central mystery,

Reviewed in Australia 🇦🇺 on July 19, 2022
Filled with plenty of twists, thrills & chills, plus a few subplots to keep things interesting, I could almost feel the frostbite on my fingers as I devoured the pages over 2 days.

Allie’s background as a former pro freestyle snowboarder provides a notable element of depth and authenticity to the story. While there is a lot of technical lingo which initially went over my head, a quick google and a few minutes watching tricks on YouTube were all it took before I felt like I was right there in the thick of it.

The short, snappy chapters and alternating timeline work cohesively to create a sense of unnerving tension and intrigue. Through the past tense chapters set in the winter season 10 years prior, we come to really get a sense of who each of the characters are, and uncover the catalyst for the group's present day predicament.

I enjoyed everything about this book. I loved that all the characters were kinda sketchy in their own way, but at the same time, I was rooting for a certain pairing. I also learnt so much about snowboarding that I feel totally confident I could slay a 720 🏂. Ignore the fact that I have never even bloody seen snow let alone skied or snowboarded in my life. 🤣

If this is what a debut novel from Allie looks like, then I am hella eager to start her new novel, The Bay.

Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on May 26, 2021
SHIVER is an atmospheric, engaging and well-written, locked-room debut thriller by Allie Reynolds.

Told in dual timelines, we follow the lives of a group of competitive snowboarders in their 20s and then again in their 30s when they reunite and are forced to confront the choices they made 10 years ago. Set in France, the ski resort is where the group first became friends. 10 years later, they’re estranged. Each of them receives a message inviting them back to the ski resort for a reunion where they end up trapped in the building at the top of the ski hill. What secrets will be revealed? Are they the only ones at the top? Who killed their friend 10 years ago? Who’s toying with them now?

The author does a fantastic job of building and maintaining a suspenseful atmosphere throughout the book. I was hooked from the prologue —
“...𝘴𝘰 𝘐’𝘷𝘦 𝘣𝘦𝘦𝘯 𝘤𝘩𝘦𝘤𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘭𝘰𝘤𝘢𝘭 𝘯𝘦𝘸𝘴 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨. 𝘛𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦’𝘴 𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘱𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘶𝘭𝘢𝘳 𝘣𝘰𝘥𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘐’𝘮 𝘸𝘢𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘧𝘰𝘳.”
I couldn’t guess who the culprit was. I was suspicious of everyone and had a new suspect with each turn of the page — so maybe I did predict who it was since I suspected everyone at some point. Both timelines were equally engaging and perfectly executed. The characters were well developed and the story has the perfect mix of ingredients for a thriller - secrets, lies, trust, loyalty, romance, a snowstorm and the ego and drive of athletes in competitive sports. The tiny twist at the end was the cherry on top of a perfectly moist cake with smooth, delicious frosting. 🍒

I tripped over some snowboarding lingo at the beginning but I dusted myself off and kept going and it got better. The map at the beginning of the book was VERY helpful as a visual aid, especially for someone like me who has never been to a ski resort and isn’t a fan of playing in the snow.

Recommend to a friend? Yes! Treat yourself to this edge of your seat snowy thriller.
