Blog Tour (Review): Ice by Lauren Carr

Book Details:

Book Title: ICE (A Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery #1) by Lauren Carr
Narrator: Mike Alger

Category: Adult fiction, 9 hours, 54 minutes
Genre: Mystery
Publisher: Acorn Book Services
Release date: April 25, 2018
Content Rating: PG-13 (Lauren Carr’s books are murder mysteries, so there are murders involved. Occasionally, a murder will happen on stage. There is sexual content, but always behind closed doors. Some mild swearing (a hell or a damn few and far between). No F-bombs!

“Lauren spins an amazing web of lies, murder and love that will have you on the edge of your seat…I love the way Lauren spun this novel – I could not put the book down! I had to know what happened to Sandy and her unborn child and how this disappearance was tied into a string of other murders. I never saw the end coming but it was perfect and suited the novel. A definite must read novel!” 5-Star Review by Carla at Working Mommy Journal

Book Description:
When Sandy Lipton and her unborn child disappeared, the court of public opinion found young Chris Matheson guilty. Decades later, the retired FBI agent returns home to discover that the cloud of suspicion cast over him and his family has never lifted.
With the help of a team of fellow retired law enforcement officers, each a specialist in their own field of investigation, Chris Matheson starts chipping away at the ice on this cold case to uncover what had happened to Sandy and her baby and the clues are getting hot!
I received a copy of Ice by Lauren Carr for an honest review. What follows is my opinion and mine alone. There was no compensation for this review.

Ice is the first in a mystery series by Lauren Carr. Set in the same world as her Thorny Rose and Mac Faraday series’, the reader follows a retired FBI agent now living with his mother in a West Virginia farm.

This isn’t the first Lauren Carr book I’ve read/listened to and it’s definitely not the last. The fun thing about Carr’s books are the quirky characters and animal sidekicks. It’s something I enjoy and helps if the mystery ever feels just a bit much. For Ice, the mystery was great.

There was so much going on, but the way everything tied together was interesting and fun. The Geezer Squad, the book club of retired sleuths Matheson joins, are fun and have great personalities. It felt like a TV show you would see in the same docket of Leverage.

Out of the four audiobooks I’ve listened so far in the series, Ice is my second favorite. It’s a perfect first book, introducing the characters and pulling enough strings to hold the reader. No joke, I listened the whole way through in two days. Perfect for those long road trips.
