Booksmith is proud to host Danya Kukafka as she introduces her debut novel Girl in Snow. With Danya in conversation will be fellow author Val Brelinski (The Girl Who Slept With God). Please join us!
Set in the small suburb of Broomsville, Colorado, this addictive thriller begins with the discovery of high school freshman Lucinda Hayes’s dead body near a playground carousel. With the town’s golden girl murdered, accusations quickly spread, drawing three outsiders from the shadows.
Oddball Cameron Whitley loved—still loves—Lucinda. Though they’ve hardly ever spoken, and any sensible onlooker would call him Lucinda’s stalker, Cameron is convinced that he knows her better than anyone. Completely untethered by the news of her death, Cameron’s erratic behavior provides the town ample reason to suspect that he’s the killer.
Jade Dixon-Burns hates Lucinda. Lucinda took everything from Jade: her babysitting job, and her best friend. The worst part was Lucinda’s blissful ignorance to the damage she’d wrought.
Officer Russ Fletcher doesn’t know Lucinda, but he knows the kid everyone is talking about, the boy who may have killed her. Cameron Whitley is his ex-partner’s son. Now Russ must take a painful journey through the past to solve Lucinda’s murder and keep a promise he made long ago.
