WoW Pick of the Week [3]

Waiting on Wednesday (WoW)
is a weekly event hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My WoW feature is:

Cover of Snow by Jenny Milchman
Expected publication: January 15, 2013
Publisher: Ballantine Books

Synopsis
Waking up one wintry morning in her old farmhouse nestled in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, Nora Hamilton instantly knows that something is wrong. When her fog of sleep clears, she finds her world is suddenly, irretrievably shattered: Her husband, Brendan, has committed suicide. The first few hours following Nora’s devastating discovery pass for her in a blur of numbness and disbelief. Then, a disturbing awareness slowly settles in: Brendan left no note and gave no indication that he was contemplating taking his own life. Why would a rock-solid police officer with unwavering affection for his wife, job, and quaint hometown suddenly choose to end it all? Having spent a lifetime avoiding hard truths, Nora must now start facing them.
Unraveling her late husband’s final days, Nora searches for an explanation—but finds a bewildering resistance from Brendan’s best friend and partner, his fellow police officers, and his brittle mother. It quickly becomes clear to Nora that she is asking questions no one wants to answer. For beneath the soft cover of snow lies a powerful conspiracy that will stop at nothing to keep its presence unknown . . . and its darkest secrets hidden.

How much do I want to read this? TONS!! First off I'm a sucker for a great cover and I love this one. Secondly this book just sounds so good. I'm not one for a thriller/mystery but I cant help myself in wanting to read this one. Recently got it at Netgalley so I cant wait to read it.
So what's your WoW of the week? Please share.
