I got a letter from a cozy mystery book reader who wanted some help with the following theme. Right off the top of my head, I thought of Patrick Ruell‘s (aka Reginald Hill) Red Christmas. Can any of you think of others?
“I am wondering if you know of any new releases that have as their theme –at least in part –winter/cold/bad weather?
I know that probably most Christmas- themed mysteries would have snow,etc. as part of their story, but I’m interested in books that really use howling winds, winter, etc. as a key component? (I know that Diane Mott Davidson often has the weather as a key part of her drama, so that kind of book is good.)
I am in a writing class, and want to write a little essay about such books.
