Afraid to Die by Lisa Jackson

Someone is freezing women to death and sculpting the ice that covers them.  The most chilling part is that the victims are all wearing a piece of Selena's jewelry...

Zebra, a division of Kensington, sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can find a copy at your local bookstore now.

Ms. Jackson has created two strong female cops.  They are very different in personalities and each has a romanic interest that they are trying to ignore.  Having a man is a good thing, but they aren't sure they want commitment.  Soon, they won't have time to worry about that.

As the missing women turn into murder victims, the hunt becomes more aggressive.  Serena can think of no reason why someone would be that angry at her and want to kill her.  The person who threatened her was still in jail.  But someone sure wants to hurt her.  Add in a son she hasn't seen since birth and Selena's own mental anguish when she wants to make love and you have a very interesting subplot.  

Both of these female cops are intense and determined to find the killer.  This is a tense, suspenseful tale of death and destruction that features more than one bad guy.  It'll keep you in your seat as you keep reading to see who wins in this game of cat and mouse...

Happy reading.

Love books with interesting twists, and the whole ice thing sounds right on the mark for a good twist along with the jewelry. Where do people come up with their ideas?! Very scary if you ask me but I would definitely read this book. Some more to add to my to find and read list. Thanks.
