This one is tense and twisted and -- my guess -- probably the last Britt Montero mystery, as she works with the characters who will lead a new series of books revolving around Miami's Cold Case Squad. "Ice Maiden" has a twist I really didn't see coming -- and it's not the ending (which some Edna Buchanan fans might not be ready for).

I never tire of Buchanan and Britt Montero. Buchanan injects humor into a genre that often takes itself too seriously. Start with early Montero so you grow to understand her character.

Entertaining mystery. It might have been rated 4 stars if the writer had just stuck to the mystery.

The two subplots were totally unnecessary and out of place. I just skipped ahead over most of those parts. Seriously. Totally unnecessary. The unnecessary romance subplot was particularly difficult to bear because the character didn't seem like she went in for male company... in that way. How can you not have chemistry between two characters when you're writing them BOTH?

I loved the supporting character of Lottie, especially her 'take' on the Queen Mum and Lassie
