    I very much wanted to like Cover of Snow I really did, and so despite my doubts continuing to mount as I read and , I persevered to the end, to the bitter end The I read, the of a chore reading this book became It started out so promisingly and ended so disappointingly.This is a debut novel, and it certainly shows As I read, I kept wondering are there no editors at Ballantine Books Cover of Snow as it is published now is a diamond well, maybe a turquoise in the rough A good editor could have [...]

    Some of the writing in this book shows that the author may have a good story inside of her yet, but this particular book isn t it.Nora Hamilton, 35, wakes up one morning to find out her husband hasn t woken her up AND he hasn t made her coffee Oh, and incidentally he killed himself the night before No, it wasn t because he was tired of waiting on his wife, but the real reason which we don t discover until the end wasn t a much better explanation.After Nora s gruesome discovery, the rest of the b [...]

    I just spent a chunk of my evening writing a thoughtful review for a book I actually liked, so I m going to keep this short and.ere I just don t have it in me to write anything thoughtful for something I found so effing boring me, listening to this audiobook Nora wakes up one snowy morning to find that her police officer husband has hanged himself But she refuses to believe he would have ever committed suicide, especially after the night of great sex they just had So Nora sets out to uncover wha [...]

    Just short of five starsWhat a page turner This is one of those books you decide to read a few pages in before falling asleep and several hours later you re still reading until sleep attacks It s frigid, set in an upstate New York small town winter Everyone knows everyone else Many people grew up in the small town of Wedeskyull where it s set though Nora only moves there after she marries her college sweetheart Brendan, a policeman in this village Nora has just started her business restoring old [...]

    I wanted to like this book because it had an interesting premise but it never lived up to its promise I have tried to put my finger on it and I think that the characters are not fully developed You never really root for Nora because there s really no reason to get in her corner.Nora s husband commits suicide and she tries to find out why It s a natural reaction She discovers he got a sleeping pill the week before so she knows he planned the deed His mother is openly antagonistic towards her and [...]

  9. Bern

    This book was the most hideous exercise in thriller writing I have ever bore witness to The writing was very stilted and clipped, the descriptions felt crude and abrupt, and it just was extremely amateurish overall The mystery wasn t enticing, the characters felt like cartoonish versions of actual people, and there were tons of convenience to go around and not in a forgivable way.I was so bored midway through it that I just skimmed lazily over its latter half, and even skimming took such hercule [...]

    A woman wakes up to discover that her husband has committed suicide Having no clue that he had been unhappy, she starts investigating what might have been troubling him, and uncovers secrets in the small Adirondack town.It was tough to get past the first few chapters As Nora wakes up, she is immediately afraid that something is very wrong because her husband is not in bed beside her But surely that happens fairly often in normal life especially if hubby is a police officer who may be awoken in t [...]

    Finally I finished this book You know that feeling you get, when you are reading a crap book and you get to the last couple of pages and you are so excited, cause you know you won t have to read any about this silly story or these stupid characters That s how I feel times 10 Things I thought upon finishing God this character likes tea, why do I have to hear about it so freaking much I hated everyone in this story All of them Not one real redeemable person Teggi the most So all that coverup was f [...]

    Nora Hamilton wakes up one morning and finds her husband dead from an apparent suicide He was a police officer in the small town they live in and Nora can t help but ask the question of why her husband would take his own life when he had appeared to be happy.I found Cover of Snow compelling even though I had some issues with it The writing took getting used to at first In the beginning, I didn t care for the way the characters broke off their sentences while talking to each other This primarily [...]

    Nora Hamilton wakes up one morning to find that her husband has hung himself This is especially surprising to her because just the night before they were getting busy with each other and everything seemed fine Apparently a lot was going on with Brendan than he let on to his wife.The first hundred pages had me hooked Was Brendan murdered or did he commit suicide and if so why After that the plot wore thin and it ran out of gas for me Nora spent too much time dilly dallying all over the place wit [...]

    This book was a train wreck, yet I couldn t put it down The writing is laughably bad, with nonsensical dialog and loosely linked events I got this for review and am trying to figure out if I can write it up without totally trashing it But the fact that I finished it says something since I normally don t finish books I can t stand.

    I just finished Cover of Snow by Jenny Milchman.It was so much better than I anticipated I had read negative reviews.It had twists and turns Some of them were predictable, some were not.At first, I wasn t a fan of the author s writing style Then, it smoothed out All was good.I will be reading from Jenny Milchman.

  16. Ronya Misleh

    I was psyched when I read the comparisons between Milchman and Bohjalian and Flynn What book, last year, was better than Gone Girl Wow, whoever wrote that was sorely mistaken.This book took the reader on a very erratic journey, one with a lot of side trips that made no sense when they happened and ended up never making sense at all Despite the fact that it took 10 years to write, it was a disjointed story, with what would appear to be plot twists but what, in reality, were just ways to annoy an [...]

    I randomly came across this book browsing the online library content, and boy am I glad that I did This debut novel by Jenny Milchman was such a jewel to find I listened to this on audio and the narrator did such a great job reading the story from Nora s point of view I felt like I was literally listening to Nora tell her story It normally takes me a good while to get into an audio book, if I ever can at all, but not only was I able to get into this book, it captured me from the very beginning a [...]

    Interesting idea for the storyline, and there is quite a bit of suspense but the story tended to wander in other directions at key times The first part of the novel was somewhat choppy and seemed to jump in many different directions Still I am sure some of this was hopefully fixed with some judicious editing before publication Loved the title and cover and I will read this authors next work because I feel she has a great deal of potential and I liked the bare bones of the story ARC from publishe [...]

    More accurately this book would be rated as 3.5 if that were possible in the rating system.Looking through other reviews which I honestly do not usually do BEFORE writing my own feeling I was shocked to see how many truly hated this book and were very unkind to the author While this book certainly had a few faults I think it was a very well put together debut effort I wonder if a few people who rated it so poorly were turned off at the vernacular and speech patterns used in the writing I had a b [...]

    Police procedural and mystery about corruption in a small town up in the Adirondack Mountains in New York.This is Milchman s first novel An impressive tale.My TakeThis was excellently written and incredibly depressing I just cried and cried at the start, the middle, and the end at all the loss All the stupid, senseless loss.Milchman was amazing at how well she strung this out, how she built the suspense The reasons behind Brendan s suicide, those initial scenes as Nora goes back in her mind abou [...]

    3,5 5 Interestingly, the first thing I wanted to comment on as I sat to write this review was the cover for once, I feel the cover is a perfect image for what the book contains Nora and her husband live in a small town, where winter hits in full force every year The scenes are filled with cold, snow, wind and ice, characters fighting the elements on a daily basis Soon enough, Nora also realizes she has very few allies it s on her alone to find the truth and fight for it to finally come out I don [...]

    Cover of Snow is Jenny Milchman s debut novel.Nora Hamilton followed her husband back to the small New York town he grew up in so he could follow in his father s footsteps serving on the local police force She s found work as a house restorer and believes they are blissfully happy Until she wakes up one morning and finds that Brendan has killed himself Why What could have driven him to such an act Nora is determined to find out But his police force family seem just as determined to let things be [...]

  23. Erin

    The best thing I can say about Cover of Snow was that it was a quick, easy read I understood what the author was going for a tense thriller set in a corrupt, lonely, and isolated small town There were too many problems with the execution, though, for the reader to ever truly be in suspense First, the main character, Nora Hamilton, was completely irritating She was described as someone who never liked to question or probe too deeply The death of her husband motivated her to finally ask questions [...]

    Nora Hamilton is a restorer of old houses, in the midst of just starting a new business called Phoenix Her husband, Brendan, is on the local police department They have a happy marriage, one that is close and intimate One morning, after making love the night before, she wakes up feeling drugged and feels like things are not right in the house For one thing, she overslept and she knows her husband would have wakened her because she had an appointment with a new client She walks through the house [...]

    Nora Hamilton awakes one morning to discover that her husband, a respected police officer, has committed suicide Brendan Hamilton left no note and gave no indication that any thing was wrong leading up to his death and shortly after his funeral Nora sets out to discover why her husband killed himself.This story line has the potential to be a great thriller or mystery, but falls flat at every effort Nothing about this story makes sense, I kept waiting to find out why people in this small town had [...]

    Is Stephen King s Hearts in Atlantis or Under the Dome a thriller Many would say no, yet these books still come from the master of fast paced writing, who knows the slavering beast under the mask of humanity In this literary thriller tradition, so, too, comes Jenny Milchman s debut, Cover of Snow Some reviewers have said they didn t have a feel for the main character, Nora, but I felt that Milchman was allowing us to follow her on our own purposely not connecting the dots for us like a Kindergar [...]

    You might have heard this author s name before because she is the mover and the shaker behind Bring Your Child To A Bookstore Day, which is now celebrated in all 50 states and four foreign countries She s energetic, driven, and boy, can she write a spine tingling mystery This book begins with a shocking suicide of a small town policeman that leaves his devastated widow trying to understand It starts with her finding out her husband sedated her the night he hung himself More and strange things a [...]

  28. Seeley James

    An excellent debut A literary mystery that gets you inside the narrator s head The mystery is a why did he as opposed to a who done it that works very well It s reminiscent of Patricia Cornwell before Ms C started coasting.

  29. Heidi

    Three and a half stars A suspenseful read full of twists and turns, that will keep you turning the pages Nora wakes to a splinter of sunshine splashed across her pillow Confused, she peers groggily at the alarm clock It is already 7 30 A.M She and Brendan rarely sleep this late He always wakes her She jumps out of bed, eager to find her husband When she pushes the bathroom door open expecting a face full of steam, she is surprised to find it empty Then she hears the familiar gurgle of the coffee [...]
