Winter Takes All by ML Erdahl

4.5 Hoots

Crystal Rainey decided to shake things up in her life by quitting her job and becoming a wilderness guide. Little did she know that she would soon by trying to solve a murder.

What can I say? I am a sucker for a good cozy mystery! Especially when it makes sense for the amateur sleuth to be trying to solve the mystery. Someone died on one of Crystal’s outings and her company was not allowed to continue providing wilderness tours until the case was closed…unfortunately the local police were known for being incredibly slow to solve this. Normally this might not be a problem but Crystal gave up her old job and really could not afford to be without work. Yes, the company said she could work in the store but 16 hours a week was not exactly going to pay the bills. So, she kind of really had no choice!

Crystal did some research on the internet on how to question people and off she went! I loved the way Erdahl would give up glimpses into Crystals mind while she was questioning people. She was doing her best and probably was a little obvious at times, but she did her best. Overall, I enjoyed the book. Crystal was smart and honestly without her the police probably would not have solved this one. The different characters were well written and some of them were not very likeable which was kind of the point. If you are looking for a cozy mystery to read check this one out πŸ™‚


I love reading all kinds of books but have no one to share them with....that was until now. My favorite genre's are: Cozy mysteries, Fantasy, Horror, and thrillers.
