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.

The Book:

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.
