Review: Dead On Ice by Lauren Carr


I have enjoyed reading Lauren Carr's mystery novels. Dead On Ice A Lovers In Crime Mystery does not disappoint.
Joshua Thornton Hancock County Prosecuting Attorny is back. We even get to see more of his home life and Meet his 16 year old son Donny.
Also back is his girl friend Detective Cameron Gates, A Pennsylvania State Police homicide Detective. With her is Irving cat that looks like a skunk and does not like to be left alone.
Joshua and Cameron find dead in his house Albert Gordon. Albert was a criminal defense attorney and a distant cousin of Joshua. In his house they found it full of junk. He was a horder since the death of his wife.
He left his stuff to his church so the Church had a work party to clean up and go through his house before it could be sold. While cleaning it up Cameron spotted a bomb in the basement.
After the bomb blew up they found a body in an old fridge that survived the bomb blast.
Since Cameron was on the scene she got to work the case. The body had been in the air tight fridge for decades.
Thier are a lot of suspects and more crimes are uncovered I was surprised on some of the cases but others parts I guessed right.
I did not put the book down till I had finshed the book.
I like how at the begining of the book is a list of characters as we meet them. Though on a book you can always flip easy enough to return thier to refresh a point on the character.
The characters are a mixed bag some you hate and others you would like to see more of them. Thier are a lot of secrets to be had in the small town and country side.
Irving and Admiral are fun animals though we don't see too much about Admiral Joshua Irish wolfhound-great Dane dog. The two pets get along. Irving brings along some humor with him.
The plot has a bunch of twists and turns before we learn who killed or was killed.
I will read more books by Lauren Carr in the future.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by the Author.
