Winter Chill by Joanne Fluke


The moment Marian Larsen sees the patrol car stop outside her house, she feels a shiver of foreboding. The news is even worse than she feared. Marian's husband and young daughter have been in a snowmobile crash. Dan is paralyzed and Laura is dead, her body broken on the icy ground.
. . .With A Chilling Secret
Friends and colleagues in Marian's Minnesota hometown rally around to try and ease her grief. But soon there are more horrible accidents. Then the rumors start—that these are not coincidences at all, that someone is picking off victims one by one. And as winter deepens, the search for answers will reveal a killer whose blood runs colder than the blinding snow. . .
Winter Chill is the first book that I have read by Joanne Fluke and I actually enjoyed it for the most part. It seems as if you can actually feel Marian Larsen devastation as her life is ripped into shreds and your heart just feels for her and her family. I felt the book was more of a psychological thriller then a murder/mystery. The book is very slow in the beginning but it does pick up towards the end. I did feel that some of the scenes, for example the sex scenes between Drew and Marian were not really necessary for the story line so I couldn't help but wonder why that particular scene was included in the book. The one reason I did not give Winter Chill four Hearts is that the killer was never revealed, so I was still left wondering at the end of the book. So I would recommend that if you are already a fan of Joanne Fluke then this is a book that you will enjoy, if this is the first book of her's that you have read then I would suggest starting off with another book she has written.
