Heart of Ice


In “Heart of Ice” by Lis Wiehl, we are once again drawn into a murder mystery and the ladies of the Triple Threat Club soon find themselves in the middle of it. Elizabeth Avery appears to be a nice, attractive young lady to most people, but those that know her best know that she has a heart of ice and does not care who is standing in the way of her dreams. Elizabeth will stop at nothing to have the man she wants, even if it means killing his ex-wife and young son. What she does not count on is that the man she has hired to do the job has a change of heart. When he tries to tell his story to a young reporter, they both end up dead. In the midst of all the killings, Elizabeth befriends Cassidy. Cassidy is also a reporter and a part of the Triple Threat Club. Cassidy, Nicole and Allison are all involved in the murders. Cassidy reports them, Nicole investigates them and Allison prosecutes the alleged murders. The ladies do not realize what is going on right under their noses and that Cassidy’s new friend is behind it all. Will they be able to solve the case before one of them is the next victim? I received a free copy of this book to review from Thomas Nelson.

When her mother, who is also her boss, starts to worry about her health, Abigail is forced to take the summer off. Abigail goes to Montana to stay with her great aunt, Lucy. Abigail is supposed to be there for rest and relaxation and to look after her aunt. Abigail meets a young girl named Maddy and quickly becomes her friend. Maddy talks her father, Wade, into hiring Abigail to look after her while she is out for summer vacation. Wade did not realize how young and pretty Abigail was when he agreed and Abigail did not count on Maddy’s father being such a handsome cowboy. When Abigail realizes just who Wade is, she decides to write an article that could help save her magazine. Abigail tries to find out the truth about Wade’s past and in the process she starts to fall for him. And even though Wade tries to stay away from Abigail, he finds himself drawn to her and finally realizes how deep his feelings are for her. But when Wade finds out what Abigail has done, he thinks she can’t be trusted with his heart or his daughter. I received a free copy of this book to reveiw from Thomas Nelson.
