"Heart of Ice" by Lis Wiehl with April Henry

  

The Triple Threat Club is once again put to the test as they attempt so solve seemingly random crimes crimes across their home city of Portland.  Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce works to solve the murder of a local news intern, while FBI agent Nicole Hedges works to prove that murder suspect Colton Foley was indeed responsible for the deaths of women around the city.  News reporter Cassidy Shaw seeks to boost ratings and secure her position by being the first to scoop the other anchors - and by following the life advice of her captivating new friend, Elizabeth Avery.  With murder, arson, and drownings making the headlines, can the trio put aside their own health issues and relationships in time to find the killer - before one of them becomes the next victim?

I was worried about reading this book before the others in the series, but Wiehl does a fantastic job of catching the reader up at the beginning.  While I knew I was missing backstory, the author rapidly and smoothly fills you in on the highlights and keeps the plot moving right along - and it does move!  This story is a terrific blend of murder mystery and everyday life - which makes it seem very real.  From health scares to family problems and weight gain, Wiehl puts the reader in the middle of a believable and fast-paced tale.

As soon as I finished this book, I went in search of the first two - and you will, also.  This page-turner is not to be missed!

I received a free copy of Heart of Ice from Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest review.
