Colfax Avenue: Jenny Milchman, the founder of Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day, will read from and sign her critically acclaimed debut thriller Cover of Snow (Random House). Waking up one wintry morning in her old farmhouse nestled in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, Nora Hamilton instantly knows that something is wrong. When her fog of sleep clears, she finds her world is suddenly, irretrievably shattered: Her husband, Brendan, has committed suicide. The first few hours following Nora’s devastating discovery pass for her in a blur of numbness and disbelief. Then, a disturbing awareness slowly settles in: Brendan left no note and gave no indication that he was contemplating taking his own life. Why would a rock-solid police officer with unwavering affection for his wife, job, and quaint hometown suddenly choose to end it all?
"Reading Cover of Snow feels like racing across a frozen lake: heart-pounding, exhilarating, frightening.” ~Louise Penny
“A terrific debut.” ~Harlan Coben
“A suspenseful story of switchbacks and surprises…Cover of Snow is a darkly atmospheric first novel that challenges all sorts of romantic notions we might harbor about small towns and the people we think we can trust.” ~Laura Lippman
