REVIEW – Where the Snow Bleeds by Wendy Dranfield

Where the Snow Bleeds

“You want to know what I’ve learnt after living in Lone Creek all my life? I know the snow bleeds here …”

Former police officer Dean Matheson has been playing it safe since the case that cost him almost everything. But working as a PI doesn’t quite cut it, that is until a British woman walks into his office with a job that Dean can’t resist.

The woman’s daughter, Hannah Walker, and her friend Jodie have gone missing whilst working at a ski resort in Colorado. It’s clear there’s something sinister about the girls’ disappearance, but then why are the local police department being so unhelpful?

So begins Dean’s journey to Lone Creek on the trail of the missing girls – and he’ll soon find out that in Lone Creek, everyone has something to hide …

Jade’s 5⭐️ review:

This is the second book in the series about Dean Mattheston. I would say that they need to be read in order as they have a underlying storyline that follows on.

I did wonder if the author would be able to top the previous book, but she did. In Where the Snow Bleeds, Dean is trying to move on and recover from what happened back home. He’s moved away for a fresh start and is working as a PI. But his last case turns out to be the most exciting one yet for him.

This book had me captivated from page 1 until that last page. It had me gripped, I stayed up late and got up early just so I could carry on reading. This book took me through so many emotions. There were so many twists and turns in this book that I didn’t see coming.

I book ended with a good ending for there to be a 3rd book and I can’t wait to see what the author brings next!
