Spring Thaw is part of an anthology of short whodunits by Lauren Carr, but for this post I am only reviewing the Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery, Spring Thaw. A clever whodunit regarding the death of a clergy.
This series is brilliant. One of my favorite Sherlock Holmes retellings EVER! The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas is the third book in the Lady Sherlock series. I picked up all three audiobook versions, and FINALLY in November listened to them all for a challenge.
Ice by Lauren Carr is the first novel in the Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery series. After reading another blogger’s review, I one-clicked and while looking for books that qualified for the #HoHoHoRAT I discovered it on my Kindle. Murder, cold cases and a secret club of retired law enforcement meeting in the library delivered a stellar story.
River Bodies by Karen Katchur is the first novel in the Northampton County mystery series. Multiple POVs, childhood flashbacks and a suspenseful buildup provided an entertaining mystery in Portland, Pennsylvania, a small river town that borders New Jersey, where neighbors keep their heads down and look the other way.
Set on Widow’s Island off the Pacific Northwest. Close to the Bone by Kendra Elliot is the first of four scheduled novellas. Each book contains a murder-mystery and there is an overall arc about a missing person from twenty years ago. From the characters to the island history I quickly slipped into this series.
The first novel in the Mercy Kilpatrick series, was a Prime book selection. An FBI agent returns to her hometown when someone murders doomsday preppers. Suspense, a little romance and a great mystery kept me flipping the pages.
Author, Anne Frasier, reunites readers with Detective Jude Fontaine in her newest novel The Body Counter. I soon found myself pulled into this suspenseful murder mystery.
