The author did a great job of describing the setting in this book. I could almost feel the freezing touch of snow. I was glad I was tucked in at my warm home while reading it! The characters (the two main leads, not the bad guys) were sweet and likable. Sometimes, the writing seemed a little stilted and I wish there had been more clues for the reader to figure out the main mystery. Overall, though, it definitely kept me turning the pages.
