The only thing left in his cot, is his teddy bear. Detective Jessie Blake rushes to the family’s modern home in the rugged Scottish highlands. She notices instantly that Darren avoids eye contact and Claire seems disconnected. Jessie knows their is no normal for losing a child, but something doesn’t feel right.

I give this book a rating of 4 stars. I recommend reading this book. I did not read the first book in the series. This was a very good book which was able to be read as a stand alone book. There was many twists and turns that I did not see coming.

Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka

Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka
Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Thanks to NetGalley and publisher Simon & Schuster for the ebook ARC of Girl in Snow by Danya Kukafka.

When a beloved high schooler named Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her sleepy Colorado suburb is untouched – not the boy who loved her too much, not the girl who wanted her perfect life; not the officer assigned to investigate her murder. 

In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three indelible characters – Cameron, Jade and Russ – must confront their darkest secrets in effort to find solace, the truth or both. 

I give this book a rating of 3 stars. The story is told in three different perspectives; Cameron Whitley, Jade Dixon- Burns and Detective Russ Fletcher.

The story drew me in from the beginning and it kept me wanting to read. But as the story went on, I kind of felt like it dragged on. The book was well written.
