"A perfectly paced and tautly plotted thriller...and an incredibly accomplished debut" (Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train and Into the Water), about a beloved high schooler found murdered in her sleepy Colorado suburb and the secret lives of three people connected to her.
How can you love someone who's done something horribly, horribly wrong? When a beloved high schooler named Lucinda Hayes is found murdered, no one in her community is untouched—not the boy who loved her too much; not the girl who wanted her perfect life; not the officer assigned to investigate her murder. In the aftermath of the tragedy, these three indelible characters—Cameron, Jade, and Russ—must each confront their darkest secrets in an effort to find solace, the truth, or both.

In crystalline prose, Danya Kukafka offers a brilliant exploration of identity and of the razor-sharp line between love and obsession, between watching and seeing, between truth and memory. "A sensational debut—great characters, mysteries within mysteries, and page-turning pace. Highly recommended" (Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels). Hailed as "Gillian Flynn of 2017" (Yahoo! Style), compulsively readable and powerfully moving, Girl in Snow is "engagingly told... its endearing characters' struggles linger in memory after this affecting work is done" (The Wall Street Journal).

Took me a while to get through the book as I would get tired of reading about the characters. The last 73 pages is when I felt things began to get good. The first 280 pages I just could not connect to in the book, nor the characters as I was wondering where the hints to Lucinda's killer would start to appear. The book was more about the characters than the murder itself. Between Cameron, Russ, and Jade, it was like the book was about them. Thought the book would be more a mystery.

More of a story of the social outcast, jealous girl and cop than of the girl in the snow. I did not enjoy this book as much because all of the story was mostly of these three unstable personalities. But at least there was closure at the end with the killer being identified. I think the author just got caught up too much in the psycho of the characters instead of the story.
