I've really enjoyed both of this authors books & look forward to the next one ... but, can't the publisher afford a decent editor? JEEZ, I'll do it for free! It's very distracting when sentences don't read right and you have to go back to fix them in your head!!!

Writer delves into a mysterious death and reveals fascinating characters and families in an adirondack town. The people and their emotions ring true in this well-written novel.

Sanarac Lake in the Adirondacks is a place where snow and ice accommodate many winter sports, and tourists who just want a fun winter retreat.  It's a place so cold that cars drive over frozen lakes in the winter, and tears freeze on you face before they can fall off.  Troy Chance is a freelance journalist who lives in her home with numerous roommates who do their own thing, and that suits her just fine!  Troy is sent to cover the set up of the Winter Carnival, where an Ice Palace is being built from carved out slabs of ice from the lake.  As she's snapping pictures, see finds herself looking into the frozen face of, Tobin, one of her roommate's boyfriends.  Did he die by accident, suicide, or murder?  The local newspaper editor wants Troy to write a series of articles on Tobin's life.  Troy had not liked Tobin before his death, and she wasn't exactly sure how she felt about him as she learned about his childhood, family, and recent friends.  But for sure, she learned a great deal about traumas, kindnesses, and more about this run away playboy than she could have imagined.  Not being overly fond of media reporting in general, I found this book fascinating as much for the journalistic investigating and reports, as I did for the mystery.  Both good and bad sides of reporting facts and interpretations of facts really developed the mystery for me.  I especially appreciated Troy's take on her decision making---"Sometimes letting the truth out let's people heal, and sometimes it makes things worse. And you couldn't really know which, until you did it, and sometimes only later." This is Troy's second adventure.  Though not necessary to read the first before this one, there are references to LEARNING TO SWIM in this book that would be spoilers if you choose to read the first book later----and the first book was an excellent multi-award winner that I would highly recommend reading first.  Sara Henry captures character and atmosphere excellently.  Even in my warm house, I felt frosted while reading these books.  I was also surprised to find myself in some of the same dilemmas as Troy in deciding how I might report a situation.  Definitely more than just your average mystery!

I’d like to read more from this author featuring this character. Troy comes across as both spunky and vulnerable. Each time there was something of a denouement another part of the story remained, to my relief, to be resolved. A great mystery read.

279 pages, book two in a series. Cost $5.99 plus tax, which is a little steep.frirst person. First book had 260 pages and cost $2.99. It needed an efitor, but was good also. I rated it four stars. This was much better, with better editing, more definitive characters and a smoother flow. It is stand alone, but but left enough room for a third book to enter the fray seamlessly. This book was published in 2013, as yet a third book has not been released. I am looking forward to book four and with a book of this caliber, I do not mind spending a bit more. No sex, religion, politics, there is only a knock to the head, in the form of violence. A thimbleful of romance, a slight nod toward a homosexual person and no profanity. This was an excellant book. For adults, but mystery lovers as young as 15 or 16 will find this book enjoyable as well. Not chick lit. Men will enjoy it also. AD

A poignant tale of family, loss, finding the truth and ultimately love and friendship found. Great story.
