Goodreads:  What happened while they were sleeping?
A school for the deaf takes an overnight trip to the snowy woods. Five teenagers go to sleep, but only four wake up. Leon is missing, and a teacher’s body is found in the forest…

Sign language interpreter Paige Northwood is brought in to help with interrogations. Everyone at the school has a motive for murder – but they all have an alibi.  

As Paige becomes increasingly involved, she suspects there’s something sinister going on. With the clock ticking to find Leon, only one thing is certain: the killer is among them, and ready to strike again…

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in this mystery series with Paige Northwood returning to work with the police department as a principal of a deaf student is found dead on a trip with some of the students and staff and one of those students has gone missing.  While the mystery is contained within these pages, there is character development from book to book with Paige and some of the recurring cast where it is worth it to start at the beginning.  

First, I love how Paige is connected to the police department, so she gets great access, but she isn't a professional detective.  And just like in the first book, the author writes the story so well, so the reader is aware what is being said in sign language and how having deaf characters and sign language make this book so unique and enjoyable.  

This plot went up and down and there were a few moments where I would maybe have made some cuts to make the story move a little faster, but in the end I was satisfied with the villain and loved the journey to the conclusion.  

Tomorrow, I will review the third book in the series.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
