really liked it
Read in December, 2011

I love the protagonist and the setting, a lesbian ex-cop who finds herself snowbound in an isolated hotel and must solve the series of murders, but she's also a wheelchair user, soher ability to follow up on clues and such is restricted even further. I'm sure some readers find the character dislikeable, because she definitely is reluctant to get emotionally involved inother people's lives and just wants to be let alone, but I found her reasons for this very understandable. Also, it's really refreshing to read about female characters who are not preoccupied with getting men to likeher; along with _Watermark_, which also features a lesbian protagonist, these were two of my favorite mysteries of 2011.
