Thom Racina has written the most exciting thriller I have ever read. Maybe it is his soap opera background that made his writing of this book so compelling. I lived through this book like no other I read before or since. I thought in the beginning that if I knew "whodunit" up front, where would be the mystery, the intrigue? No need to worry about that! Racina made it easy for me to slip into Julia's role and feel what she felt. This really gave mixed feelings to her relationship with Matt, knowing what I knew but she didn't. The ending was a heart stopper - and perfect. His handling of Maggie's heroism showed his sensitivity to animals. I wish he would write more like Snow Angel.

Not an especial fan of the murder-mystery tale, I was surprised to find myself seduced completely and happily by Mr. Racina's bone-chilling story of human slaughter, life-shattering lies, no-holds-barred revenge, and nail-biting suspense. I was even more surprised to be captivated by "Snow Angel" because the first chapter reveals who done it, how, where, and why it was done. The author's years of grinding out network television soap operas has hone him into a master of the cliffhanger.
Start to finish, I was loathe to set down this totally compelling tome. Now I want to read everything that Racina has written.

Snow Angel is one of the most intense, exciting thrillers on the bookshelves today. With its compelling plot, gripping pacing and perfect writing, the story rises far above the formula that a more compromising author would have fallen back on. Suspense and energy radiate on every page, and the ultimate ruse carried off by the story's very appealing "woman-in-jeopardy" will stay in my mind forever. I can't say enough about this book. Buyers will not be dissapointed!

Books that I usually read are about how the murder was done and the whole "whodunit" thing, so this book surprised me because I didnt expect to like it that much beacuse I found out who the killer was in the beginning of the book. It is one of my favoite books now!! The whole book was great and I thought I knew what was going to happen and it was surprising to find out what was really going on. I would highly recommend this book!!

Snow Angel was such a good book, it was hard for me to put it down becuase I always wanted to know what would happen next. Some parts in the book like the death of Julia's Parents and the sex parts are a little to descriptive but it just shows you how sick Matt Hinson is. I liked it becuase some times your hateing the main characters and sometimes your cheering them on. Great book, highly recomended.

I loved this novel! Just when you think you know what's happening, Racina throws you a curve--and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The element of breast cancer is odd for a thriller, but it works here and done masterfully. The author has created a psychopath you almost want to like, and it's very very creepy. The ending is sensational, guaranteed to leave you breathless. Read this book!
