Snowstorms in a Hot Climate

31st December 2005

Snowstorms in a Hot Climate : A NovelWhile Mapping the Edge was my favorite book by Dunant, this one was my least favorite. Marla travels from England to New York at the request of her friend Elly. Elly’s relationship with her cocaine-dealing boyfriend, Lenny, has gone sour, and she wants Marla’s help. But leaving Lenny is not as easy as Marla thinks it will be, and soon Marla is entangled as well.

While the book is somewhat suspenseful, it doesn’t really draw you in. You have a hard time sympathizing with Elly, as she knowingly and happily began a relationship with a coke dealer. And although you want Marla to help Elly, Marla’s actions don’t always make a whole lot of sense. All in all, I wouldn’t recommend this book.
