A COLD AND LONELY PLACE (2013)
While she’s watching the crew build the Winter Carnival ice palace, Troy Chance sees a body encased in the frozen lake—a man she recognizes as the boyfriend of one of her roommates. Assigned to write a feature on his life and mysterious death, Troy discovers he was the missing son of a wealthy Connecticut family.
Trying to unravel what brought him to this Adirondack village, she joins forces with his girlfriend and his sister, who comes to town to find answers—and as Troy digs deeper, it’s clear someone doesn’t want the investigation to continue. When she uncovers long-buried secrets that could shatter the serenity of the small town and many people’s lives, she’ll be forced to decide how far her own loyalties reach.
