Publisher Comments:

Heavy Snow...Icy Desires...Cold-Blooded Murder

Clare Fergusson, St. Alban's new priest, fits like a square peg in the conservative Episcopal parish at Miller's Kill, New York. She is not just a "lady," she's a tough ex Army chopper pilot, and nobody's fool. Then a newborn infant left at the church door brings her together with the town's police chief, Russ Van Alstyne, who's also ex-Army and a cynical good shepherd for the stray sheep of his hometown. Their search for the baby's mother quickly leads them into the secrets that shadow Miller's Kill like the ever-present Adirondacks. What they discover is a world of trouble, an attraction to each other-and murder...

"Superb!"

-Library Journal

"Terrific action scenes...what really distinguishes In the Bleak Midwinter, however, is the author's skillful portrayal of her protagonist's inner conflict."

-Washington Post Book World

"A riveting page-turner from start to finish."

-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Review:

"This debut mystery is set in the tiny Upstate New York town of Millers Kill and features as protagonists Claire Fergusson, a newly-arrived Episcopal priest, and Russ Van Alystyne, the chief of police. The two are brought together when a newborn baby is left on the church steps. Efforts to trace the child lead to the discovery of real villainy in an otherwise serene, snow-covered landscape and the priest and the policeman each learn something new about human nature. The author knows more than a bit about small town life and her characters ring true. All in all, this is a solid effort and a promising beginning." Reviewed by Andrew Witmer, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
