Lots of twists and turns, as you might expect in a mystery occurring at a house party, where you don't want any of the characters to come up guilty. But with a snowbound house and a dead body in the library, SOMEONE has to be guilty...but did they intend to kill THIS victim?
The one downside is that the love story between Kori and Peter wasn't as central as it has been in past books.
It is just before Christmas and the home of Peter and Kori Brichter is filled with guests. Along comes a blizzard, locking them all in and cutting off the power. By the time they manage to get the backup generator running, one of them has been murdered. Who did it and why? Peter Brichter is a police detective and one of the guests is a retired police detective and the two begin to investigate as the household continues preparations, albeit much more subdued, for Christmas.
Motives surface unexpectedly, but who did the deed? Extra brownie points to any reader who can figure it out even though the clues are there!
I enjoyed the main character Kori's, search for her history, thinking she had no relatives left. Even though this is labeled as a Peter Brichter mystery, it is really her story. Kori felt a little too gooey, a little too flat, a little too distracted.
None of the characters were too weird, and I could see stories in this series with any of them as the main focus. Harsh language was fairly limited.
This is the only book I've read in this series. It can stand alone, but it did leave my wondering why it was a Peter Brichter mystery.
Definitely worth reading, would make a good book for a rainy afternoon or even the beach.
I am also a character-driven reader and the character development is somewhat shallow for me as well. The previous book was in a setting I enjoyed that is rarely done accurately (horse show world) but this book had a few too many issues for me.
