Book Feature-One By One by Yawatta Hosby

Today I’m featuring a book by the wonderful author Yawatta Hosby. Check it out.


Rae faces a dilemma when her brother, Kenan, announces a man wants to buy their log cabin in Virginia. A place abandoned after they helplessly watched their parents tortured and killed inside.

Rae reluctantly agrees to travel with her brother to sign over the deed once he mentions their six friends are tagging along for moral support. Before the road trip begins, Marissa, Rae's best friend, picks up a stranger for a weekend hook-up.

The next morning, two of her friends have disappeared from their room. And worse, someone has sabotaged their two Jeeps, leaving them stranded.

Alone in the woods, thirty miles from civilization with no cell phone reception, the weekend turns into a deadly game when a killer hunts Rae and her friends. They struggle to stay alive and discover the truth.

Is someone stalking them, or is there a killer among the group?

Reminiscent of "Harper's Island," ONE BY ONE is a disturbing mystery thriller where a group of friends let paranoia get the best of them. With suspense and betrayal, it'll also remind readers of "Scream." Someone never intended for them to leave the cabin and will follow through with the plan by any means necessary.


Kenan leaned against the Jeep while Tobey pumped gas. They stood alone. "Brady made a point in the car. What if Adam is dangerous?"

Tobey cracked his neck. "We could take him," he said matter-of-factly. Not cocky. Not aggressively. He wasn't the kind of guy to jump into random fights or shouting matches to prove his manhood, but if he needed to protect himself or loved ones, that wouldn't be a problem for him.

Within the few minutes he spent outside, Tobey hadn't noticed any cars pull into the parking lot or drive past. Was this a ghost town? One of those places where crazy locals took turns tormenting, terrorizing, and murdering outsiders, who foolishly stopped in this No Name, NoHintOfItOnAMap town? Or worse yet, what if the town was full of racists?
