I've been reading other bloggers' posts about this book for months and now I've been reading that Mystery in White is becoming a best seller. They had me at the cover illustration, although I downloaded Mystery in White as an e-book. I finally read it last week and I loved it.
What could be cozier than reading about passengers on a train stuck in a terrible snowstorm? Some of them leave the train to hike to another station. They get lost in the storm but find a welcoming, warm, cheery house in the country. Fires lit, kettle boiling, tea laid - but no one is home.
The travellers dry off, get warm, have something to eat, and wait for the owners to return. But they don't. There are some suspicious people among the strangers from the train and a few more people arrive later. Then the bodies start appearing.
I liked this book a lot. I liked the writing style, the characters, the atmosphere of the house in the snowstorm, and the plot. The author wrote many other mysteries and I'm hoping I can track some of them down.
