for Cold Winter Nights:
"Cold Winter Nights will freeze your toes and heat your blood as Mayor Loren sets out after the killer of a beautiful woman. Snow squalls and icy swims in Adirondack waters create a dynamic sense of place, filled with delightfully offbeat locals like the mysterious old Woodsman. And be sure to have a hot toddy in hand as you approach the bone-chilling, heart-pounding denouement! Another winner for author Anne White."
—Nancy Means Wright, author of MIDNIGHT FIRES: A MYSTERY with Mary Wollstonecraft.
"The serene backdrop of Lake George seems an unlikely place to find Cold Winter Nights' ugly snarl of infidelity, deception and murder. But we willingly follow White's deft transformation of that idyllic Adirondack setting into center stage for the killer's desperate attempt to silence the too-perceptive (and delightful) Emerald Pont mayor, Loren Graham."
—Persis Granger, author of ADIRONDACK GOLD, A SUMMER OF STRANGERS, and editor of SHARED STORIES FROM DAUGHTERS OF ALZHEIMER'S.
for Secrets Dark and Deep:
White’s delightful mystery, set around historic Lake
George, is a lively puzzler worthy of Agatha Christie. Tightly
plotted, with more red herrings than a can of sardines, SECRETS
DARK AND DEEP is White’s best yet.”
Spencer-Fleming, Edgar finalist and author of ALL MORTAL FLESH.
DARK AND DEEP is exceptional, so skillfully written the reader
gets lost in the flow and it ends all too soon. The story
moves at a fast pace, nicely building suspense until a climatic,
nail-biting ending. As part of the Lake George Mystery Series,
past and future books ensure a building relationship with
likeable Loren Graham and her cozy resort town. White delivers
a colorful cast of characters readers will not easily forget
and a galvanizing plot that guarantees edge-of-the-seat involvement.”

on of Mayor Graham's lakeside community. I feel as though I've
driven through it—walked along the shores of its lake—shopped
in its stores."
M. Albert. Art by The Lake Columnist. Lake George Mirror,
“A well-structured novel highly enjoyable.
Its clear style never gets in the way of the plot and the characters
are pleasant to spend time with. Most likeable of all is Loren
herself who can be witty without crossing the line into terminal
sweetness. Compassionate and savvy, Lake George couldn’t
ask for a better mayor.”

technique of using Lake George as the unifying element in her
series allows readers to get to know a beautiful area of upstate
New York through her polished writing. The minor players represent
a cross-section of society, some well-to-do and others struggling
to get by. Best Laid Plans may
be White’s best book so far in this well-bred series.”

so perfectly, makes the quest for a girl’s killer all
the more urgent. Beneath The Surface churns with suspense.”

The Surface feeds my appetite for
codes, puzzles and manipulating letters. White’s cryptography,
like her writing, is right on.”
Suit, Crossword Constructor
crafty plot with spine-tingling sensations that practically
jump from the pages [and had] this reader spellbound. A compelling
read with twists and turns that is hard to put down.”
Sanders, Coffee Time Romance. 5 cups.
White’s novel, Beneath The Surface submerses the reader
in the chilly depths of resort-town politics where deadly
sharks glide beneath the sunny waves of tourists and attack
at the first hint of blood.”
