ARC August Review #1: Girl in Snow
Title: Girl in Snow
Author: Danya Kukafka
Publication Date: August 1, 2017
Genre: Psychological Suspense
Recommended If You Like: multiple-character perspectives, musings on love, characters who feel real, complex characters
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinion of the book or my review itself.
When high school student Lucinda is murdered, it brings out repressed feelings in her own town-especially for Cameron, Jade, and Russ, three characters caught up in painful memories and lost loves of their own.
What I Liked:
This is a beautifully written book. Kukafka has a great writing style that makes you think and makes you feel. It was like I was right there along with the characters, feeling what they were feeling, trying to figure out life and love as they did.
Anything I Didn't Like?
The resolution of the mystery of who killed Lucinda felt a bit rushed. The build up was so suspenseful and mysterious, and the revelation was definitely a big surprise, but I wanted more from it.
I definitely liked this book. It's not the best in this genre I've ever read, but Kukafka has a writing style I really enjoy.
