Winter Chill

The moment Marian Larsen sees the patrol car stop outside her house, she feels a shiver of foreboding. The news is even worse than she feared.

Friends and colleagues in Marian's Minnesota hometown rally around to try and ease her grief. But soon there are more horrible accidents.

    "Quite a story"

    I haven't listened to any of this author's books before, but I certainly will order another one in the hopes that it will be as interesting as this one. I was a little concerned at the slow, long narrative arc in part 1 of the download. I felt it was a little slow and considering the novel was billed as a mystery, it was a little too long for the mystery and murders to get going. The character development is good, though, and that takes most of the first part. Then, the novel gets going big time in part 2. The ending is brilliant...so brilliant I caught my breath! Completely unexpected, by me anyway. This novel deserves a listen.

    "Good performance. Holds your attention."

    The story line is a variation on one used many times. Even so, it is well written and the performance holds your attention throughout. The ending made listening worthwhile.

    "What the heck?"

    I have read a lot of Joanne Fluke's Hannah Swenson books and they are entertaining. This was anything but! I was 3 hours in before anything "new" happened. Then ok I wanted to see "whodunit", well surprise, I still don't know. That was hours of my life that I will never get back. I just didn't care about any of the characters practically from the beginning.
    Don't waste your time or your money.

    "I thought this book would be a cozy mystery"

    I was expecting another, cozy mystery by Joanne Fluke-she is noted for writing such titles as the Devils Food Cake Mystery oh boy, was I wrong. Starting with the daughter is killed in a snowmobile accident and it just gets worse, I just kept listening thinking it would improve,it just got sad. I have to say if you are expecting that kind of mystery you would be so wrong.

    Story
    "Slow"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The first half of this story is so slow, goes on and on. Was ready to stop listening but when the second half started it got somewhat better.


    If you’ve listened to books by Joanne Fluke before, how does this one compare?

    This story dragged to much.


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Evan Welch – was your favorite?

    Don't have a favorite.


    Did Winter Chill inspire you to do anything?

    Not at all.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time unless you want to be bored for the first 4 hours.

    "Not Classic Joanne Fluke!"
    What was most disappointing about Joanne Fluke’s story?

    This book was so dark and depressing for so long, we just couldn't continue. When it became apparent that bad language was going to continue throughout the book, we just threw it away. We are VERY DISAPPOINTED!
