Hmmmm, not a bad book, just a very short one. I too am hoping for something better in her upcoming books. This one seems out of place in a hardcover. I think it would have been better to have presented it either as a single mass market paperback or perhaps with other short books in an anthology. I honestly laughed and thought "You've got to be kidding!" when I saw how small this *hardcover* book was.
One other thing that didn't work for me was the jumping back and forth between what was going on with the h/h and then with the bad guys. I had a problem with this in her previous book, Burn, and here it was again. Call me shallow, but beyond the build-up of how bad a bad guy is in a book, I don't really need to know (or even care about) what they're thinking or doing every second. They're bad, they're a threat, and there you go - get back to the main characters. Don't get me wrong, some inside info is good, but not this much in such a short book. In this sort of scenario, I think the time would have been much better spent developing the two main characters and their relationship a bit more. As it is, I was left feeling that both were somewhat lacking and rushed.
Was very disappointed, it seemed like a very poor copy of her novella "Whiteout". I usually love her books but the last couple of books I haven't been thrilled. Hope her next book is better
The title of the book has a double meaning. First, there is a horrid ice storm. And the sheriff sends his son Gabe, on furlough from the service, to check on a gal that was Gabe's nemesis in high school. However, when he arrives at her place, he finds that two Meth-heads (street name ICE) have her hostage. He helps her escape, but the bad guys come looking for them.
A short story, but very suspenseful with some romantic moments sprinkled in. I enjoyed it!
Wow, riveting story line and plausible outcome. That doesn't happen often in a romance. The thrills are fantastic, no slow spots in this one. The characters are well developed and believable. ALl in all a quality thriller with a touch of steam.
What happened to Howard? She used to be one of the greats!
This was a cardboard rendering at best. No depth to any of the characters. It would have been better as a Harlequin or Silhouette except even those are better than this.
She'd been off my radar for awhile but I thought I'd give her another chance. Not again. I'll go back and reread her old stuff which had some depth!
