Publisher's Summary

She didn’t see the patch of black ice until it was too late. The car started to spin, and as it veered off into the deep ditch and the mounds of snow beside the road, she saw him. The little boy frozen in the ice.  

When the remains of two bodies are found in an open grave along a desolate highway in Stillwater, Minnesota, Special Agent Nikki Hunt knows exactly who they are. The bright blue jacket lying on the frozen earth belongs to Kellan Rhodes, the missing boy she’s desperately been trying to find for the last two days. The other body is his mother Dana, who had been Nikki’s lead suspect. 

Although the wounds on Dana’s body suggest she murdered her son and took her own life, Nikki finds evidence that suggests she was a victim too. Dana was desperately trying to regain custody of Kellan, and Nikki finds boot prints at the scene that belong to someone else. 

When another child is reported missing, local journalist Caitlin Newport claims the cases are linked: Zach Reeves was taken away from his own mother in a custody battle, just like Kellan was. 

Caitlin once helped Nikki find out the truth about her own parents’ murders, but her desire for a story nearly cost Nikki her life. Now, Nikki must decide if she can trust Caitlin again, before time runs out to find the killer and bring Zach home alive....

A thriller that will make your heart pound until its final, shocking conclusion. Perfect for fans of Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter, and Lisa Gardner.

"Addictive. I read this in one sitting. It's unputdownable.... Filled with intrigue and deceit, The Girls in the Snow is guaranteed to keep you up all night." (Lisa Regan)

One Perfect Grave

I figured out this killer at the beginning of this story. As with the first book, we’re told how great Nikki and her team are but she makes stupid mistakes that take away from that description. So far each of these books have been half personal drama for Nikki and half the murder mystery. For my personal tastes, I prefer way less personal drama In this type of book.

This novel is 90% romance and 10% mystery

As with all romance novels, the main female character is weak, annoying, and pathetic! Same goes for the novel.

The narrator is excellent

Beaten strangled and concussed

A little tired of FBI protGinist being hit and concussed at the climax of each story. pushes credibility.

Can't wait for book 3!!

Stacy Green has certainly created a great new crime series with FBI Agent heroine Nikki Hunt. Nikki is complex, imperfect, believable and addictive. The narrator, Kate Handford, of books 1 and 2 is fantastic. I hope that she will continue with the series in book 3.

Great thriller

I’m liking this series. Can’t wait for more. However— I’m begging whomever is in charge of the audiobook to find another narrator. Kate Handford simply cannot perform a masculine voice. I got so confused at the Miller character— I thought he was a girl. Ugh.

Outstanding

First, I must say the editing was much better than the first Nikki Hunt story.
I found myself mildly obsessed with this story. I ordered it on Audible so I could listen while driving and on Kindle to read on my free time.
The Narrator does a fantastic job of portraying the characters.
The story had several unexpected twists and kept me captivated.
I've already bought the Kindle version of Lost Angels, the third book, but I'm disappointed that there is not an Audible version. I intend to start book three right now.

I Found My New Series to Devour!

After finishing four or five series that I’ve enjoyed very much, I’ve been a little lost while casting about, looking for a new one, and now I’ve found it!

I very much enjoyed my first book by author Stacy Green. I was still guessing at who was guilty until the author revealed it, and even then I was surprised! The final two chapters were excellent.

Only at the very ending in the credits, did I realize that this is Ms. Green’s second book in the series. I’m delighted to find there is the first book I have the pleasure of listening to before moving on to the others in the series. I am always so sad when I reach the end of a series (almost as if I am saying goodbye to longtime friends, as silly as that sounds), so I am delighted to find more “friends” with whom to spend time in this series.

If the other books in this series are as good as this one, I will not be disappointed! It is my understanding that this author has another series with a different main character, and I will happily be reading those as well!

My only regret is that Audible gives only one stingy credit per month in their premium membership as I go through a book at the rate of one every two days or so. Because extra credits are VERY expensive, I am forced to wait for Audible’s big sales to stock up on my favorite series (soon I will no choice but to get a part time job to support my Audible addiction if I keep finding authors and series I like as much as I do this one).

Another Case Wrapped Up

FBI special agent Nikki Hunt gets pulled into another case in her home town when two bodies are found in a shallow grave alongside a remote highway. A murder/suicide easily explains the bodies of a young boy and his mother, but Nikki proves nothing is as at seems. Another great crime read with a touch of romance by Stacy Green.

Not bad

Took a while to get into the story, but after a few chapters I got invested. Good whodunnit that kept me guessing and interested. Well done
