Blackberry Winter: A Novel

Amazon says:   Seattle, 1933. Single mother Vera Ray kisses her three-year-old son, Daniel, goodnight and departs to work the night-shift at a local hotel. She emerges to discover that a May-Day snow has blanketed the city, and that her son has vanished. Outside, she finds his beloved teddy bear lying face-down on an icy street, the snow covering up any trace of his tracks, or the perpetrator’s.

Seattle, 2010. Seattle Herald reporter Claire Aldridge, assigned to cover the May 1 “blackberry winter” storm and its twin, learns of the unsolved abduction and vows to unearth the truth. In the process, she finds that she and Vera may be linked in unexpected ways…

I really enjoyed The Violets of March and The Bungalow and I have no reason to think that this book won’t have the same slightly surreal mystery. Her support characters are usually very charming and I wouldn’t mind having them for my neighbors.

What are you waiting on?
