Leah (leahmichelle) | 3 comments I’m looking for a book that I read a while ago. I’m pretty sure it was a chick-lit book. From what I can remember it was written in first-person and the main character sees her dad go out into the back garden one night and kill himself (I think he freezes to death)- it could be a flashback. I know that sounds dramatic but in the context of the book I don’t think it was quite like that!

Leah (leahmichelle) | 3 comments Yeah, it's not that one, though, unfortunately.

Cynthia | 11 comments I remember a similar scene in Eyes of a Child by Richard North Patterson. It is a flashback by Teresa Peralta, I think she watched while her mother locked her drunken dad out of the house and he froze to death. It's a mystery/crime book though and I don't remember if it was in 1st person.

So it wasn't Eyes of a Child?

If you still want to find the book, don't forget to bump this thread every once in awhile. This gets new members to see your query and could help get it solved.
