I've read few cozy mysteries so I won't address if or how well "The Body In The Snow" fits that category.
And due to personal time constraints, the time it took me to read the book reflects only on my circumstances, not the book.
I will say I always looked forward to reading the next snippet of story I sneaked in at bed before no longer pretending I could still see the print well enough to read (smiles). The leisurely style of the story plus the relatively short chapters did make it easier to pace myself reading.
My only regret was that the story finished; I hope the author does create a series (as indicated by the title).
I enjoy shifting points of view and each chapter rotated through an increasingly more interesting cast of characters. Pacing as I mentioned was steady yet with moments of acceleration. Descriptions were crisp and clean adding punch and clarity.
This was a fun read. My solid 4.5 for this story easily rounded to a five.
My short and minor wish list includes a desire for a few well placed metaphors or similes. Like a spritz of lemon or sprinkle of herbs on fresh cooked vegetables, short emotional extensions of a description or the garnishing of a stream of consciousness, would have I think widened my imagination.
Beyong that, I thought the third person deep povs worked really well. It made relating to - and suspecting - nearly every character in the book easy (smiles).
Surprisingly, the mystery of identifying the opening scene's murder victim mid-book layered the mystery-level as a whole to an even more tangled level.
And finally, not meeting Beth, the protagonist, till well past the beginning of the book, created such a sense of relief and footing, I don't know how else this potentially first in a series could have been written.
In other words, the story unfolded naturally and unforced.
An easy to read yet complex tale.
The story starts with a prologue where there's an intense relationship and one of the parties is beaten and left in the snow. The story goes back in time and the intensity builds as the characters are introduced with the action beginning right away, at first with personalty clashes that really bring the cast alive. As the plot unwinds back to the scene in the prologue with the body in the snow the reader is left to wonder will the detective finally solve a case and will what's happening risk Bebe's chance at renewed fame.
I've read and enjoyed several of this author's books but this one was a real treat. Who doesn't love a good mystery. Looking forward to more.
She’s ready to stage a comeback. Approaching sixty years old, she knows it’s now or never.
Her comeback is threatened on all sides. Her agent may be steering her in the wrong direction. Her neighbor Dora is a decade younger and stunningly beautiful…an forgivable sin in Bebe’s book. Her daughter is courting scandal of her own, which could negatively impact Bebe’s image.
A body frozen in the freak blizzard near Bebe’s home threatens more than her return to show business. Bebe is a suspect. Can she help solve the mystery before it’s too late?
Christoph Fischer is best known for his critically acclaimed and award winning historical fiction. As a Fischer fan, I loved the The Luck of the Weissensteiners, Sebastian, and The Black Eagle Inn. From a global perspective, the books offer scope and breadth on difficult social, economic, political, and religious issues. From the human perspective, the trilogy delves into family conflicts and issues.
One house holds a former music star. The next house has a busy husband and wife. The third home houses a divorcee, glamorous.
During a historic snowfall, to everyone's shock, a woman is found under the snow in front of the couple's home, dead. Dead from a shovel trauma.
We get to know these members of the community, and also the police assigned to the case.
I would call this cozy a mixture of police procedural and amateur sleuths.
I truly enjoyed this book. I also hope that the series continues as I would like to follow their lives as they progress.
