Cover of Snow Read Online Free - Waking up one wintry morning in her old farmhouse nestled in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, Nora Hamilton instantly knows that something is wrong. When her fog of sleep clears, she finds her world is suddenly, irretrievably shattered: Her husband, Brendan, has committed suicide.
The first few hours following Nora’s devastating discovery pass for her in a blur of numbness and disbelief. Then, a disturbing awareness slowly settles in: Brendan left no note and gave no indication that he was contemplating taking his own life. Why would a rock-solid police officer with unwavering affection for his wife, job, and quaint hometown suddenly choose to end it all? Having spent a lifetime avoiding hard truths, Nora must now start facing them.
Unraveling her late husband’s final days, Nora searches for an explanation—but finds a bewildering resistance from Brendan’s best friend and partner, his fellow police officers, and his brittle mother. It quickly becomes clear to Nora that she is asking questions no one wants to answer. For beneath the soft cover of snow lies a powerful conspiracy that will stop at nothing to keep its presence unknown . . . and its darkest secrets hidden.

My car crunched over the combination of salt, pebbles, and grit that served as a parking lot. I avoided the gas pump, pulling into a space a fair distance from the row of gray cop cars. Their shadowy forms made my red car look like the afterimage of some alien sun.

I very much wanted to like Cover of Snow. I really did, and so despite my doubts continuing to mount as I read more and more, I persevered to the end, to the bitter end. The more I read, the more of a chore reading this book became. It started out so promisingly and ended so disappointingly.

Just short of five stars
What 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 gre...

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 c...

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 act...

I can't do it. This book makes no sense what so ever.
