The Fear of Winter

This book starts out as a search for a missing daughter but turns into so much more. It’s the story of what happens to a married couple when tragedy strikes, the desperation of lives marred by drugs and alcohol, and the splinter between children and parents.

At one point I had a hard time keeping track of all the characters since the book doesn’t use chapters to separate points of view but combines them into their own sections within the chapters. But once the story got going and I sorted everyone out, I was hooked.

As Marshall, Hannah and Tom’s search converges with possible suspects and witnesses, the tension increases up until the end. Prepare to wrap yourself in a warm blanket as Sterling describes the Colorado winter so realistically, you’ll feel yourself shivering with cold and suspense! I can see multiple story lines coming out of this, the first book in the series.

Thanks to NetGalley, Hidden Gems Books and No Bueno Publishing for an advance reader’s copy.
