Blackthorn Winter--YA Murder Mystery!

Blackthorn Winter
by Kathryn Reiss

Genre: YA Mystery

Review: In the artist's village of Blackthorn, rain falls and murder surrounds. Teenager Juliana is moving from California, away from her father, with her mother to England, along with her "twin" siblings Edmund and Ivy. Juliana is adopted, but she doesn't remember much of her past. This book follows two mysteries: the memory of Juliana's past and a murder in town. Juliana investigates, jeopardizing new friendships and love interest Duncan. I couldn't solve the mystery and the characters were interesting and well-developed. The antics of Edmund and Ivy were funny, and the romance between Juliana and Duncan was sweet yet realistic.
