Let me begin by saying if you are one of the people who get really wrapped up in a book, so engrossed that you almost feel what the character is feeling, and your husband is out of state, your son isn't home to protect you, you live in New England and it's dark, prepare to not sleep. Just kidding, well sort of! That's what happened to me when reading this story. Roberta Goodman will get you so wrapped up in the story of Allegra and her plight that you'll be double checking your locks, looking ov ...more

Ever since things didn’t work out with her ex-boyfriend Danny – he wanted to keep things simple, while she was convinced they had an actual relationship – things in the love department haven’t been working out for Allegra.

Rear Window, North By Northwest, Psycho, The Birds and Vertigo. What made this classic thrillers so classical and so thrilling? I personally believe it was the touch of Alfred Hitchcock. Ever since Hitchcock became known in the mainstream, many people have tried to replicate his style in movie making and even literature. In the case of Roberta Goodman's "Snow Escape", Hitchcock has been perfectly translated into literature. Like many people these days, hopeless romantic Allegra Maxwell decides t ...more

Roberta Goodman's novel Snow Escape is a real page turner of a mystery, but it could use some tweaking in the character development and writing style.

After about 25 pages in, Snow Escape becomes a real page turner. I seriously couldn't put it down. I had to know what was going to happen next. Goodman puts in several good red herrings that throw the reader off. I also wondered several times whether Goodman's protagonist, Allegra Maxwell, was a reliable narrator, or if she was not totally sane.

This was such a simple story, but quite chilling. Being trapped in an apartment building during a blizzard and being stalked by an unknown person, creepy tenants and a murder, this book left me with goose bumps.

Allegra is a young, single woman living alone in an apartment within a large apartment complex. Arriving home early from work because of the threat of an approaching blizzard, she prepares herself to be stuck home for the weekend. After checking her email and responding to a message fro

Roberta Goodman's Snow Escape was based around Allegra Maxwell, a single teacher, who's innocence is portrayed and threatened during a massive snow storm in New York.

Being a single woman, she feels the need for companionship. So she meets other single men through an online dating shop that she attempts to date.

Snow Escape is exactly the kind of novel I think would make a great thriller. Something like The Resident, if that movie were half decent.

Allegra, the main character, is a school teacher who lives in Brooklyn, NYC. Even when she was being whiny, I liked her. Because as annoying as her lamentations were, she’s was a very real, fleshed-out character. A lonely woman, innocent and a bit too naive for her own good, with insecurities and problems just like anyone else. And when push came to shove, she

Snow Escape starts off introducing us to Allegra Maxwell, a single school teacher who turns to an online dating site in hopes of meeting Mr. Right. In the beginning of the book I found myself drifting back and forth because I wished the author wrote it in the Allegra's P.O.V, instead of writing it in the third person felt kind of boring...I wanted to experience what Allegra was feeling, instead of being told how she felt.
BUT as I read on, I found myself wrapped in the story and w

Up until now, I've been reluctant to review my own work and I still won't, but I've decided to say a few words about it. The premise for Snow Escape came to me and I was powerless to fight it. I experienced an overwhelming inspiration to write this story. In fact, my fingers typing the words couldn't keep up with the thoughts that were flowing from my brain. I'm proud of the job I did writing it. Some readers might agree, others might disagree. Opinions are always going to be subjective, that's ...more

This book is absolutely wonderfully well written by a talented writer. The Story consist of an Erie feel of a well known familiar fear we all face when putting personal information online, much less when meeting a new person online or in chat rooms. The Novel takes a twists as she learns more of her stalker and is forced to questioned her own sanity. Under a snow storm she is forced to hide from her stalker, one of her neighbors gets killed. She later finds out this person is from her past. I wo ...more

Loved the premise, suspenseful, stuck inside a building during a snowstorm, possibly with your
"stalker" in the next apartment, and...downhill from there. Too out there, too many loose ends which were woven together even though they didn't fit...I really wanted to enjoy it, but it just wasn't that great.
