Description

Madison walked through the fallen snow, looking left and right. It had been Kaylee’s idea to use the trail through the forest; she said no one would follow them. But Madison lost sight of Kaylee for a moment and when she found her again she wasn’t alone…

In the remote forests of Stillwater, Minnesota, you can scream for days and no one will hear you. So when the bodies of two fifteen-year-old girls are discovered frozen in the snow, Special Agent Nikki Hunt is sure the killer is local: someone knew where to hide the girls and thought they would never be found.

Though Nikki hasn’t been home in twenty years, she knows she must take over the case. The Sheriff’s department in Stillwater has already made a mistake by connecting the girls’ murders to those of a famous serial killer, refusing to consider the idea that the killer could be someone from town.

Then another girl’s body is found, a red silk ribbon tied in her hair, and Nikki realizes that the killer has a connection to her own dark past, and the reason she left Stillwater.

Nikki is not the only person in town who wants those secrets to stay hidden. Will she be able to face her demons before another child is taken?

Gripping and spine-chilling, The Girls in the Snow will make you gasp, unable to put it down until the final heart-pounding twist. Perfect for fans of Karin Slaughter, Lisa Gardner and Robert Dugoni.

    I loved this book. Filled with anguish and unanswered leads, an incompetent sheriff with an ego and plenty of ignorance and stupidity. Things just spiraled and changed and sailed through into a different direction than you thought! All I can say is WOW! Ready for the next book now. Great story by this author.

    I'm so glad that I finally got to this one, and I'm eager for book two, "One Perfect Grave" coming February 25th! The Girls in the Snow centers around FBI Special Agent Nikki Hunt, still haunted by her parents’ murders years ago. When Nikki's called upon to return to her hometown to investigate the frozen remains of two young girls, she’s soon questioning everything she thought to be true and those she once trusted above all else. Mark, the man she helped identify as their killer, has appealed his conviction in light of new evidence brought upon by the Innocence Project. Meanwhile, his brother Rory has decided to plead with Nikki to revisit her memories and analyze the facts for herself. But what happens when her past collides with her current case? Nikki knows that while she's still on the hunt for a killer at large, the case of the girls found in the snow must take precedence. This was an incredibly atmospheric read, to the point that I felt chills both from the content and my perceived cold front! Now, while the mystery behind Nikki’s parents’ tragic demise didn't surprise me, I did enjoy the thrilling path leading up to that grand reveal. However, I was utterly shocked to find out what happened to the girls, the why, and the how! I loved the whodunit vibes as well as the beginnings of a romance. I'm hoping book two will further explore this relationship and those on Nikki’s team as I'm anxious to get to know them all a little better! As far as first books go, this was an excellent start to a new series! Perfect for crime thriller fans looking to get lost in a case while cozying up with a blanket and warm drink! An impressive example of how our actions ultimately affect not just our futures but others as well. Many thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for my complimentary copy of this title. I have voluntarily and honestly reviewed this title.

    I really loved this book. I like that the author didn’t complicate things. She writes a way that anyone could read along and enjoy. The book really took some twists and turns and while I knew the ended wasn’t going to be what she wanted me to think, I was super shocked, which is great! It was unpredictable, detailed, painted a perfect mental picture for me. I think it would be great as a movie! I really loved this book and look forward to reading more in the Nikki Hunt series!
