Beautifully rendered and utterly magical, Wolf Winter is a gritty, dark, and atmospheric read set in 1717, in the Swedish Lapland.
Pine is unsettling.
What would you do if you find out your best - only - friend is a psychopath?
A coming-of-age, quirky story about the Brontes' last surviving ancestor, and the scavenger hunt her dead father sets for her from beyond the grave.
Considering the lower Goodreads rating on this book (3.01 out of 5), I didn't have high hopes for this story. I ended up devouring it...
A strong mystery that reads like an Agatha Christie. Intricate plot and characters, with each character having their own will and desires. It was hard to know who to trust, and to what extent.
Nothing like a dead great-aunt to haunt you. This book was a fun, flirty read, with a haunting ghost who happens to be your dead great-aunt who wants nothing more than to dance with handsome (living) men and get her stolen necklace back.
It did not disappoint.
What unfolds reads like a quintessential gothic novel. Not quite as gloomy or dark, but certainly has an atmosphere that lends itself to deep shadows and cold nights.
A disappointing thriller based on family lies, village ties, and an old unsolved crime.
