This book started out very brutal and disturbing.... I wasn't sure I would make it past the 1st chapter. However, I gave it "one more chance" and ended up listening to the whole audio book. It was very well written and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series. ( )

Cold Mourning was an interesting read. The story is set around Detective Kala Stonechild. Her private life, present and past, her relationship with her boss Rouleau, and lets not forget crime. A good first Adult Crime Novel for this author. ( )

Kala Stonechild, a First Nations woman and police officer, has transferred from Northern Ontario to Ottawa to work in a specialized unit in major Crimes. But it is not just the job which has brought her here. As a child in foster care, she and her cousin, Rose, experienced an horrific event which has plagued both of them since. Now, Rose has disappeared with her young daughter and Kala is determined to find them.

In her first week on the job and just a week before Christmas, the body of a wealthy businessman is found frozen in the trunk of his car. Most of the unit is convinced that his murder was linked to his job but Kala is not so sure. She suspects that the family is harbouring secrets and she is convinced that the truth lies somewhere among these secrets.

Author Brenda Chapman has written a compelling mystery with some very interesting characters. Kala is strong-willed, smart, and sympathetic and her boss, Jacques Rouleau is kind, compassionate, and understanding. Chapman has also created a plot full of enough twists and turns that it was nigh impossible to guess the real perpetrator. Cold Mourning is the first in a new series by Chapman and it is certainly a fine beginning. ( )

I was immediately taken by with this book from the very start. Police recruit Kayla Stonechild, who has a difficult history and is from Northern Ottawa, is assigned to a new unit in Ottawa whose job is to return Tom Underwood, who has gone missing, home for the holidays. Kayla is a loner, used to striking off on her own to do her job. Her new boss, Detective Jacques Rouleau, must somehow control her and his team, keeping them from straying off track. To make matters worse, Detective Rouleau’s boss has a personal vendetta against Detective Rouleau and is determined to see the team fail. The team works diligently to solve the case, but old rivalries, personal relationships and a dysfunctional family work against them in their efforts to solve the case. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters in the story, especially Kayla and Jacques, whose chemistry in the job was perfect. The author has developed an intricate plot, filled with twists and turns that will keep the reader guessing until almost the end just who is responsible for Tom’s demise. A fascinating subplot in the story is Kayla’s past and her relationship with another indigenous native/aboriginal woman, and how Kayla is trying to tie up whatever loose ends there may be with this woman. I will definitely look for a follow on to this book, with more about the Stonechild/Rouleau working relationship. I received this from NetGalley to read and review. ( )
