A cozy and devious mystery read with lots of wintry Gothic atmosphere and a romantic suspense heroine who defies the cliches. There are references to Daphne du Maurier and Agatha Christie in the story but this is a new world take on vintage mystery, with a well-described Eastern Townships setting made famous by Louise Penny. If you like your femme fatale stereotype served upside down you'll love the conclusion to this book. I'm looking forward to book 2, The Au Pair!
