Cold As Ice by Stephanie Black...My Review
I always think I am going to figure out "who-dunit" sooner when I read one of Stephanie's books. I always get so involved in the story I forget to be studying out the finer clues. Of course this is another fantastic book from author Stephanie Black. You are led into so many different directions that you are kept guessing until the very end.
There was a lot of head banging (I am not talking about the rock and roll kind) when it came to the main character, Abigail's, brother. Derek made me want to hit him, feel sorry for him, shake him and help him all at the same time. The situation that Derek gets into is very scary. You can see how someone could be framed for a crime so easily.
Stephanie creates strong characters, plenty of maddening bad people and a
story that takes off at the beginning and doesn't let up much until the very end. I read this book fast and enjoyed it a lot. If you have not had the chance to read Cold as Ice you should. This mystery is one that will leave you shaking your head and shouting out- loud at the characters. I am not going to say which characters that you will be shouting at. You may yell at different characters than I do. Or you may just read the book like normal people and not yell at characters in the book at all.
I borrowed this book from the library, but I will soon be adding it to my Stephanie Black collection. Thanks Stephanie for another fantastic mystery! (Yes, I did have the Foreigner song running through my head while reading this book. )
