Naomi Mortenson (naomimort) | 1 comments I started reading this murder mystery, probably around 2012 or 2013, that I believe was set in Russia. My vague memories of the cover are rose petals in the snow (super helpful, I know). The opening scene is a husband arriving home to his wife and young son. He's bought them chocolates, and he's brought his wife flowers. There's a lot of tension between them, and everything about the other annoys them. The wife and son both eat a chocolate, and then suddenly start foaming at the mouth, vomiting, and—if I remember correctly—the wife at least keels over dead. Immediately the husband is suspected as the one who poisoned the chocolates.
That was only the first chapter. I didn't get much farther into it before having to return it. I honestly don't remember the genre, but I believe it was somewhere in the mystery/murder/thriller/potentially-spy novel genre.
Any and all leads t'would be most helpful : )
