In the Bleak Midwinter... the hunt for sequels begins.

In the Bleak Midwinter - Julia Spencer-Fleming

I liked it, just not enough to write a proper review:


Construct a three or four step murder mystery. Add a dash of red herrings and a congregation of suspects. Mix them up with a character driven slow burn—emphasis on the slow—romance and voilà. You've just mastered the recipe for a delicious book in a genre that has seen everything.


Serve in intallments. Dammit.
