"A snowstorm, a stopped train, an avalanche, and only two survivors. How could a peaceful train ride turn into a nightmare? It can when an avalanche threatens to knock the entire train off of the cliff and it does. COVER YOUR TRACKS has a creative story line and will have you on edge from the minute the two characters escape the avalanche's wrath until you turn the last page."

"Wow. If you're looking for a fast-paced, gripping, chilling and suspenseful thriller from start to finish, this is what you should read. I really liked the premise of this book, lost in the winter wilderness, and I absolutely love that it was told with stories of the past woven into the present. So much suspense was built up, I did not want to put this down and wanted to keep reading ... I was very pleased that I did not guess the twist. This story was very chilling, and kept me guessing. It's one that I'll definitely be thinking about for a long time. This book will be staying on my shelf, and I'm already looking forward to my next read. I really enjoyed this thriller, and I can't wait to see what Daco writes next!"

"✨A fast paced, suspenseful read 📖.
✨A page turner, which keeps the reader on his wits end, throughout.
✨Intricately carved out scenes, keep-up the strain on the nerves & the excitement.
✨I have always believed, a mother- whose child is in danger, is the greatest warrior of all!
✨The end did relax my tense muscles but still left few questions unanswered, which I loved!
🎄🎅🔔❄ A PERFECT READ when Christmas is just round the corner! READ 📖it to know why!"

"As a Washingtonian myself, I was thrilled to see the main character was from Spokane, just a few hours from my home town. I've also been in Montana and so picturing the mountains, the amount of snow and wild animals really brought the story to life. As a reader not familiar with the area, you'll still get the imagery of the surrounding lands and terrors she describes.
This is an amazing phycological thriller that might just deter you from taking a train ride in the middle of winter."

"Daco is an extremely talented writer. She was able to paint the picture of the mountain backdrop so well that at times I swear I could smell the pine trees and the winter air (ignoring the fact that I live somewhere with a lot of pine trees and coldness)."
Trisha, Goodreads Reviewer, 5 Stars
"I was gripping the book so much as the two characters try to survive the treacherous conditions of the mountain! I mean, they are literally in the middle of nowhere trying to find a safe shelter during a blizzard!!! And on top of no food and water, there are wild animals to think of. Coyotes! Leopards! And let's not forget that Margo is due to give birth any time soon!!! 😱😱😱Having grown up in a tropical country, I am not really a fan of snow. I haven't even experienced a snowstorm so I was really in awe of the suvival skills that Margo and especially Nick, possessed."
Cess King-Azote, Goodreads Reviewer, 5 Stars
"So when this first started out I really thought we were going down the path of the movie the mountain between us. I was completely and utterly wrong. We start to get to know a lot about our main characters Margo and Nick, and I'm a lot more attached to them then I normally am with characters in thrillers. I really thought our thriller was going to be about being stranded a mountain, that was the tip of the ice berg."

"This was absolutely brilliant- from the start and throughout the story remained engaging! It was an awesome page-turner and one I would strongly recommend everyone to read 😊"

"𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐆𝐨𝐨𝐝: I loved this book right from the start, it reeled me right in with action and suspense and kept me interested with the continued journey of these characters.The book was told thru dual perspectives, while intertwining present and past experiences.
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐁𝐚𝐝: I was left questioning a couple of story lines. I felt so invested in the characters and their stories, I wish the loop was closed for me.
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐔𝐠𝐥𝐲: I highly recommend this book. It was a quick read that brought in fiction, suspense, thriller and even a little romance. I enjoyed both (yes both) characters and appreciated incorporating their past, as it really helped with character development and enlightenment to their thoughts and decisions."
Ashley Greg, Goodreads Reviewer, 5 Stars
"One thing I always look for in a book, is how my emotions play out throughout a story. And let me tell you, mine were a rollercoaster. This book kept me on my toes. Auffendore does a great job of transporting you through a story with a non-linear timeline to delve into the previous lives of the two main characters, Nick and Margo. Both Nick and Margo end up being the only two survivors from a train accident in the middle of an avalanche. They are two complete strangers who must trust each other to survive the wilderness.
Looking back on the story, I could COMPLETELY see this being turned into a film. It was the perfect mix of great imagery, thoroughly developed characters, and one hell of a storyline. I am here for it. 👏🏼👏🏼"

"I loved this book! There was a lot of suspense in it and I was constantly worried about Margo and Nick."
Stephanie Bevins, Goodreads Reviewer, 5 Stars
"Reading this book I felt like I was watching a movie. Fast-paced and exciting, every time the end of a chapter was getting closer, and I was: ok, let's see what happens next, there was something that left me: OMG I can't stop it now!!"
Kelly Garcia, Goodreads Reviewer, 5 Stars
"[T]hose first chapters went fast. Like, James Patterson-chapter-length fast. If you know my reading habits well, you'll know that I love a quick and snappy chapter. ... Auffenorde got down to business real quick, and personally I think most authors today haven't quite mastered throwing their reader into the story. When done properly, you can't help but get drawn in, and that's what Auffenorde does. She hooks you immediately in a way I, a creative writing major, admired and appreciated."
