I felt really sorry for Helena at the end! Never thought that would happen as in the book I didn't really like her. You got her aloofness really well, and sometimes it's great to read about a character you don't like rather than one you do.

The murder at the end tied in well with the cold theme of winter, as most of the murders I've ever read have been described with words that make me think of anger, blood, passion, angst etc. In other words all things that bring hot/ burny images to mind. It was very subtle and you really felt the coldness. Made the wintery landscape feel that bit chillier. :)

Am looking forward to the other stories!

Author's Response: I'm so sorry it's taken me forever to respond to your reviews! I really shouldn't, as you are one of my most dedicated readers and reviewers and I appreciate it so much! I'll make it up to you somehow. :-)

I'm glad you were able to feel something for Helena. I wanted to redeem her a little bit, and create some sympathy despite her bad behavior.

The seasonal theme was actually pretty difficult to plan out for the four chapters of this (next few chapters coming soon!) The season could just BE there - it had to be an important part of the story. So I'm glad I was able to make winter carry some meaning in this one.

Thanks so much for reviewing!

xoxo
Melanie
