Book Review: A Cold and Lonely Place by Sara Henry

It’s nice to see the blue skies today after all the snow we’ve been having here in Newburgh, but there’s still a chill in the air.    All of this freezing weather reminds me of coldandlonelyplacea book I read last winter by Sara Henry called, A  Cold and Lonely Place Henry, formerly a reporter for the Adirondack Enterprise up in Lake Placid, New York has written a thriller set in the beautiful but bone-chilling Adirondacks with a main character, Troy Chance,  who sounds similar to Henry’s younger self.  Troy Chance is a freelance writer who has just discovered  a frozen body in Saranac Lake as the town is getting ready for their annual ice festival.  She recognizes the body as someone she knows and one of her roommates is quickly “a person of interest” in the case. Of course, the victim turns out to be the son of  a wealthy businessman who was trying to disappear from his previous life.   Although this is a sequel to her first book ,  Learning to Swim,  I hadn’t read that novel and had no problem getting involved in the plot.  Henry delves into the characters  and the intrigue thickens as Chance tries to solve the mystery.  I look forward to reading more novels by this author and the main character, Chance, who had me equally intrigued.  Curl up with a blanket and start reading, A Cold and Lonely Place. – you won’t regret it!
