Review: The Winter People

The Winter People
The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This novel by McMahon is a fantastic mystery/supernatural thriller. I thoroughly enjoyed it! For me, there was never a dull moment in the book.

It was spooky enough to please lovers of speculative fiction like myself without being so jarring that it would be considered horror. That said, I think that sometimes subtle creepiness is far more effective than overt shocks to the system and boy does McMahon bring the creepiness to the pages.

If it matters to you, there is no knight in shining armor to be found in this book. The women, strong and complicated and otherwise, manage to get themselves in trouble and see the plot through to its resolution just fine all by themselves. Great characters, all of them.

All around just a wonderful book from this talented author.
