Hi there and welcome to my stop on the exciting Blog Tour for Will Dean’s new book titled RED SNOW. Red Snow is the second book in the Tuva Moodyson murder mystery series and after reading the first book titled Dark Pines I was thrilled to read this book. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an advanced readers copy of this book for me to read and share my review with others.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
One suicide. One cold-blooded murder. Are they connected?
And who’s really pulling the strings in the small Swedish town of Gavrik?
Black Grimberg liquorice coins cover the murdered man’s eyes.
The hashtag #Ferryman starts to trend as local people stock up on ammunition.
Tuva Moodyson, deaf reporter at the local paper, has a fortnight to investigate the deaths
before she starts her new job in the south. A blizzard moves in. Residents, already
terrified, feel increasingly cut-off. Tuva must go deep inside the Grimberg factory to stop
the killer before she leaves town for good. But who’s to say the Ferryman will let her go?
MEET THE AUTHOR:
WILL DEAN grew up in the East Midlands, living in nine different villages before
the age of eighteen. After studying at the LSE and working in London, he
settled in rural Sweden with his wife. He built a wooden house in a boggy
forest clearing at the centre of a vast elk forest, and it’s from this base that he
compulsively reads and writes.
Wow this book! Tuva is one heck of a female heroine and is such a wonderful, charismatic, funny, and determined character. I loved reading about her adventures in this book and I truly love how hard core she is! She has a wonderful personality and it is clearly shown in Red Snow.
Red Snow takes place in the small Scandinavian town of Gavrik, where it is bone chilling cold and snowy. We are introduced to the liquorice factory owners and their family, where at the very beginning of this book a death takes place. Was it a suicide, or was something more sinister in play? Tuva is determined to find out.
Although this is the second book in the Tuva Moodyson series, it can easily be read as a standalone book. Some of the same characters from the first book, Dark Pines, are in this book as well which I quite enjoyed. Some of the characters are questionable at best and many have their own fair share of secrets and deceit that they bring to the story.
I do hope there are more books in this series, as I love Tuva’s character and I am not yet ready for her to leave just yet. We need more Tuva!
If you haven’t had your eyes on this series yet be sure to check it out and get your hands on a copy. You will not be disappointed.
MY RATING: 4/5 stars
