Winter Chill by Joanne Fluke (52)

A Small Town. . .

The moment Marian Larsen sees the patrol car stop outside her house, she feels a shiver of foreboding. The news is even worse than she feared. Marian's husband and young daughter have been in a snowmobile crash. Dan is paralyzed and Laura is dead, her body broken on the icy ground. 

. . .With A Chilling Secret

Friends and colleagues in Marian's Minnesota hometown rally around to try and ease her grief. But soon there are more horrible accidents. Then the rumors start--that these are not coincidences at all, that someone is picking off victims one by one. And as winter deepens, the search for answers will reveal a killer whose blood runs colder than the blinding snow.

REVIEW:
Wow!
For the first half of the book, I actually wondered if they got it wrong calling it a thriller. They didn't. It just took some build up, and after reading it you know it was much needed build up, to get to the thriller part of the tale. And oh what a tale it is!
I thought I knew who was the killer from the start of the thrilling parts. I prayed to God that I would be wrong though, I mean, no one would ever want to think it would be that person, but it was. It's still shocking to think I was right.
But what a story! You felt part of this web, you get weaved into it as a person watching on the outside, but BAM! It's with you.
I may be haunted by parts of it for a while. That's good writing for ya!
Joanne Fluke, I loved this intro, for me, into your writing, and you best bet it won't be the last. 

4/5

It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
