On Christmas morning, Holly Judge wakes up late with the phrase "Something followed them home from Russia" gnawing at her. She thinks maybe she will find time to write again at last, but after she is left at home with her adopted daughter Tatiana while her husband goes to pick up his parents from the airport, nothing about the day goes as planned.
It's hard to say much about this book without spoiling it, as the day unfolds and the reader is left to puzzle out if there is something supernatural happening, if Tatiana is suffering from some kind of more mundane breakdown, or if it's Holly's perception that can't be trusted. At the end, there were still some details I was unsure how we were supposed to interpret, or if there was meant to be a right answer, but after the reveal on the last page I decided the author did "play fair." This is a book that will keep you wondering right to the end.
Mind of Winter will be available March 25.
