Cold Girl by R. M. Greenaway
The publisher has provided a copy for review.
This is a Canadian novel. The language, insights into BC's culture and its people, and the way the plot unfolds is thoroughly Canadian.
I was surprised. I haven't lived in Canada for 30 years but I was transported to the winters in mid-province. I could hear the accent of my childhood friends in the conversations and the idioms.
I got lost a few times but in the end, the plot was full of satisfying twists and turns. (hence 4 stars) I kept going back to the next chapter.
And bam bam. Just when I thought I had it figured out, something in the plot surprised me. This is worth a read and worth a few winter evenings with the characters. Enjoy.
