Format: Kindle Edition
Knowing nothing about the author or her previous works I requested this book to review solely based on the blurb, and the blurb makes Winter Chill sound like a fast paced mystery. Sadly that wasn't the case. Very little action happens in the first half of the book, the early chapters are dedicated to the humdrum of the Larsens life - from shopping to cooking (after some research, I found out that Joanne Fluke is famous for a series of culinary mysteries, which explains the heavy presence of food). There are glimmers of what is to come, such as Dan's sleepwalking and Marian's mood swings, but these only really add to the story much later on, when they build into something more significant. The pace improves towards the end of the book, as does the action as we start getting `accidents' happening to those close to the Larsen family, but the really good stuff is not until the final chapter.

Whilst slow, the story generally flows well, moving seamlessly between perspectives. There are two exceptions, both in the form of unneeded and out of place sex scenes. The adultery between Marian and Drew would be more fitting in a Mills and Boon story than in Winter Chill. It made uncomfortable reading (no, I'm not a prude), and what's worse is that is simply swept under the rug after a few pages, despite Marian having confessed to Dan. The second scene between Cliff and Connie makes more sense, but doesn't really advance the plot apart from providing a simple excuse to allow the killer access to them at the same time. Plot wise, there are some sticking points for me such as the lack of forensics and the seeming disinterest of the local sheriff in doing any investigation, despite clues pointing squarely at one family.

Never expected this to be as gripping, held in suspense to the last chapter, a total thrilling read from start to finish

This is NOT another Lake Eden Novel!! 27 Aug. 2013
By jmcbride1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you are looking for ANYTHING like the Hannah Swensen mysteries, DO NOT BUY THIS! However, if you are looking for a darker mystery novel, you may want to give this book a try. Reading all the bad reviews, they all say the same thing, "this isn't like her other books" No, it's not, but that certainly doesn't make it bad, it's just different. It seems the book jacket alone will tell you this is not a Lake Eden book. I liked this book. There were moments of complete sadness and sorrow and if you want an upbeat book with laughs and happy ending, do not read this. This is a completely different genre and i wish people would recognize that before purchasing the book and then giving a horrible review. Also this book was written in 1984, so yes this is an "early work" and re-issued. It was no Hannah Swensen, but it was still a good book!!

Upsetting 16 Dec. 2013
By Kathy aka The Mad Stitcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have never before wanted to un-read a book but this one is one that I wish I could un-read. It left me completely shocked and upset. I have never felt this way before and I read all types of literature.

Shocking!!! 15 Aug. 2013
By Ruth A. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book shocked me. I have read all this author's books and have thoroughly enjoyed them. They have been mystery cozies. This book was dark and scary. I still don't know which of all the characters was the really bad guy. Book was well written and moved right along. But I almost had to look under the bed when I was done. I am giving it a five because of the way it was written, but I never want to read one like it again.

Very disappointed 9 Aug. 2013
By Pearl S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read and enjoyed Joanne Fluke's books in the past. I expected something similar to the Hannah Swensen series, which I found fun and entertaining. Winter Chill was not only basically depressing, it wasn't even particularly well-written. I don't believe there was a happy moment in the whole book - I'm sorry I spent the money to buy it.

the fake story 12 Sept. 2013
By laurie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I know that this was Ms Flukes second story she wrote back in the days before her cookie mystery's. What I don't understand is how she has continued to write. At first it started out very promising, setting up the two characters, however, that's all there was, just two stupid people, doing stupid things and feeling sorry for themselves. Just a few good chapters and the rest was boring, hovering beyond "why was I reading this story", to down right closing my kindle and not finishing it and not caring I actually paid for it. Ms Fluke stop re-issuing your old books, they are not good.
