Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book: 
Wow, did I love this book! This sat on my To Be Read pile forever–I just couldn’t seem to find the will to pick it up. Once I did I couldn’t put it down! I loved the characters, Ash and Pia, then I hated them for a bit, then loved them again–I kept flip flopping. The author manages to make The Storm justifiably terrifying but reasonably realistic as well. The story was completely plausible. I would read a few chapters, then set down the book and try to think about how I would react in that particular scenario. How often do you find a book that captivates you AND makes you think at the same time?!?

 

Would I recommend it: Absolutely! This book was well researched and well written. I was immediately drawn into the story, and I could not put this book down. The few times I had to put it down, I found myself dwelling on the characters and the story, trying to anticipate what would happen next and how they would respond. Read this book! Now!

About the book – from Goodreads: Ash and Pia’s move from Brooklyn to the bucolic hills of Vermont was supposed to be a fresh start—a picturesque farmhouse, mindful lifestyle, maybe even children. But just three months in, news breaks of a devastating superstorm expected in the coming months. Fear of the impending disaster divides their tight-knit rural town and exposes the chasms in Ash and Pia’s marriage. Ash seeks common ground with those who believe in working together for the common good. Pia teams up with “preppers” who want to go off the grid and war with the rest of the locals over whom to trust and how to protect themselves. Where Isole had once been a town of old farm families, yuppie transplants and beloved rednecks, they divide into paranoid preppers, religious fanatics and government tools
