Murder heats up this cold village My first exposure to this author and series I certainly want to read her previous books The story got interesting as it progressed Lots of emotion along with the murder and mayhem.

As winter comes to a close, a high school English teacher is found, shot dead, on a hiking trail and Constable Molly Smith sets out to determine whether the killing is intentional or random This new police procedural, the sixth in the series, lives up to the earlier novels that so many readers have acclaimed It s great, once again, to be taken back to Trafalgar, British Columbia and the fascinating cast of characters that make up the town A great read for those leisurely days over Christmas.
I like this series It s lovely to read a good book set in Canada
Several female characters presented in poor light Emotionally weak Some male characters physically and or mentally weak Not my favorite in series, but will continue to read.

On a cold wintery day, I like a good cozy mystery, but sadly, I m all caught up with Louise Penny s Three Pines I accidentally started in the middle of this new to me series, but I was easily able to get familiar with all of the main characters in the mountain community in which it is set The reoccurring characters felt a little flatter than the ones unique to this book, but they have likely been developed previously in the earlier books, so that s my own fault for starting in the middle Delany [...]
I think I liked this book as much as any of the previous books in this series As usual the setting and atmosphere are described very well and become part of the story I think this one had a bit better police investigation procedures than the earlier books and I have grown to like John Winters a bit with each book even though he did have a few minor regressions here but none that are unforgivable I actually liked Eliza than in any of the previous books And I still love Lucky It was kind of nice [...]
I have enjoyed this series and grown to care for the characters They have all grown and changed as the series continues The story line was good and kept my interest and had just the right amount of suspense for me This story I found myself yelling at Molly and telling her not to be foolish I have been listening to the story while in my car and often did not want to turn off car and would put on headphones and listen while eating my lunch All in all enjoyed this book and looking forward to the ne [...]
This book advances the lives of Molly and Lucky but the mystery is dissatisfying A woman is convinced an adult man is her son who was taken from her at his birth Because a mother just knows Why not say that he bore a striking resemblance to her father Or one of her brothers That could be the case, whether or not he is her son, and would be so much reasonable I like to have a light mystery to read before bed and will try the next book.
An enjoyable mystery series with believable characters and settings.
A school teacher is shot while out hiking.
I m getting hooked on this series, but I think I only have a few to go I think the books get better with each new addition to the series
Too many subplots Mystery a bit unbelievable Not much focus on the mystery Didn t care for the series, will not read another.
Vicki Delany writes standalones and the lighthearted Klondike mysteries, but my favorites remain the Constable Molly Smith mysteries set in Delany s Trafalgar, British Columbia These mysteries combine the best of traditional village mysteries and police procedurals If you add in the fascinating setting and the wonderful characters, these are books that should be better known than they are A Cold White Sun, the sixth in the series, could be read without having read earlier novels, but why would y [...]
I have a few little qualms about this generally enjoyable book which cause a hesitation in recommendation The main issue is one which probably won t cause a serious problem for a lot of readers, because they re not nutty about detail in my own specific way the murder weapon caused me a certain amount of teeth grinding That it s an unlikely weapon is less of a problem than the way in which it s used, and there is sufficient inconsistency in the description of the effects and the operation of it t [...]

I love a good murder mystery and this book certainly fits the bill It is the sixth book in the Molly Smith series Molly is a police officer in her hometown of Trafalgar, British Colombia Trafalgar is a resort community so there is a mix of permanent residents and vacationers making it a great setting for a murder mystery series since there is a reason for large numbers of strangers to be in town There are several important characters police working to solve the murder Friends and family members [...]
I really loved this book The plot is interesting a young mother of two goes out early one morning to walk the dog in the frozen woods of Trafalgar, British Columbia and is shot by what police determine to be a sniper s rifle Why would anyone want such an ordinary person dead Was she even the real target In a sub plot, the development of a wilderness area had been stalled, but is now in full swing again, and not too many of the locals are happy about that Our heroine is Constable Molly Smith inex [...]
I am unfamiliar with Canadian authors so this was a new mystery series for me The action takes place in a small mountain ski town in British Columbia where a high school teacher is shot one morning while walking her dog through the woods Various characters are introduced including Constable Molly Smith, Detective Sargent John Winters, Smith s boyfriend and cop Adam Tocek and various townspeople As the police work the case, it becomes clear that this is a woman with no enemies and there is no evi [...]
I ve been reading this series from the first Was hoping eventually the writing would improve The storyline is good, the characters are believeable, but there are always some really odd disconnects.This time, the most telling is near the beginning when an employee of a main detective s wife, decides at one glance that a man, about 44 years old is the same child that was taken from her at birth.Half the time Molly is referred to by her first name and half the time by her last I could almost unders [...]
Thanks to an unexpected afternoon at the pool I got to finish my book Strange story to many sub stories going on and I felt like too many new characters were all of a sudden introduced Not bad though It s the end of March and Trafalgar, British Columbia, is preparing for the last influx of the seasonal skiers Teachers, parents, and students are preparing to relax at home or head off on vacation But for high school English teacher Cathy Lindsay, the week of relaxation doesn t work out as planned [...]
I just finished reading this book a week ago and already I can t remember some of it I just remembered that main summary is that a lady went for a walk and was shot to death That is how it begins and then after that, the main character Molly and other police folks are working to solve the murder mystery Unfortunately it s not very memorable for me as I can t remember exactly what happen and what the end result is like who the murderer is The one thing I do remember is that Molly was having marri [...]
