Winter at the Door: A Novel (Lizzie Snow Book 1) by Sarah Graves is a well-written suspense novel. Lizzie Snow was a Boston PD Homicide Detective. She has worked hard to get her current position; however, there is a lead on the whereabouts of her missing niece. Lizzie takes a position with the Aroostook County Sheriff’s office to track down the lead. Lizzie thought she would be out on the roads doing patrol, but the Sheriff gives her the position as the County Liaison Officer for Bearkill, Maine (not quite what Lizzie had in mind). Sheriff Cody Chevrier has his own reasons for wanting a homicide detective on the force. Lizzie adjusts to her new life and job in a small town, two suitors, looking for her niece, and helping the Sheriff with a string of “suicides”. I really enjoyed Winter at the Door. It is an easy book to read, and I was hooked right from the beginning. I do not read suspense novels that often, but I will definitely be reading this series (and looking for other books by this author).
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Winter at the Door is available for purchase on Amazon.com. It was released today (January 6, 2015). Happy Reading!
