Snow Place to Die Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Snow Place to Die

Judith McMonigle Flynn is getting tired of the B&B business, but her cousin Renie convinces her to help cater a weekend for one of her graphics customers. The annual winter retreat for OTIOSE is at the secluded Mountain Goat Lodge and with a breathtaking view this weekend could turn out to be a great way to earn money and relax. There is just one problem-the caterer from last year is missing, that is until Judith and Renie find his frozen body. Judith's inquisitive nature means she can't help but try and find out what happened. Since it is an annual retreat the murderer had to return. Could it have been Leon Mooney, vice president and comptroller, wanting to protect the company from a possible merger? Or Nadia Weiss, an administrative assistant for Frank Killegrew, CEO, who could be dating him on the side? When a blizzard leaves them stranded, they find themselves stranded with a homicidal manic killing the OTIOSE board members one by one. It's up to them to find out who it is before they come after her and Renie!
