Cover of Snow: A Novel by Jenny Milchman

Cover of Snow goes on sale,  January 15, 2013.

Nora Hamilton wakes up on what is a seemingly ordinary,  January morning. She calls out for her husband and can't find him --- that is until she finds him hanging from a light fixture in the stairwell. 

Nora looks for answers to her husbands death--- she is desperate to learn about the days leading up to his suicide. As, she begins to uncover secrets buried long about by her husband, his family and the town, she finds out more than she bargained for. These very secrets might just result on her own demise.

Overall this is an interesting novel  and since it is, Milchmans debut novel I suspect her writing skills will only improve. It's not nearly as clever as one would expect from a suspense novel. It is predictable yet it manages to keep you captivated and intrigued. It is definitely worth reading.

Grade: B-
