Sum It Up! Overall, an adult mystery reader would really enjoy this novel.


Others may dread the chill of winter, but he relishes it. The way the frigid water preserves his victims, the feel of their icy skin beneath his fingers... And soon the world will see their beauty—and his vengeance.

The town of Grizzly Falls is on edge in the wake of a serial killer, and Detective Selena Alvarez is no exception. That case was solved, but a new nightmare is about to unfold. There are two victims so far—their bodies found frozen solid and deliberately displayed. Both are women she knew. And each wears a piece of Selena’s jewelry…

Selena’s partner, Detective Regan Pescoli, and the entire department are on the case, as is P.I. Dylan O’Keefe—a man Selena got too close to once before. But this killer already knows too much about Selena’s secret terror, her flaws, and the past she’s tried to outrun. And soon he’ll show her that she has every reason to be afraid… (Goodreads)


Looking for a spooky book for the Fall? Lisa Jackson produces yet another spine-tingling thriller that will have readers avidly turning the pages. Selena Alvarez is the main character. She is intense and very driven, a great female main character who needs no saving from anyone else. When Selena learns of the latest case, she is chilled-literally. Two women are found dead in the cold water and Selena instantly recognizes them. However, her connection to the victims is far from the creepy part; the victims are found wearing a piece of her jewelry. Whoever is behind this case just made it personal to Selena.

Selena's character is as strong as ever. She remains intelligent and witty. The reader will learn far more about her than he/she had known before and Selena reveals more of her past. Apparently, Selena's past is something she'd prefer to remain firmly behind her. The killer seems to know Selena on an intimate level and leaves Selena afraid for herself and what may come to light next. The reader will revisit with familiar characters such as Regan and Dylan, both will help solve the murders.

Lisa Jackson keeps the reader guessing throughout the story. There are numerous twists and turns; the character development in the case of Selena makes this book worth reading in and of itself. Selena will rapidly become a favorite character of the readers'. This plot is very convoluted, but the author does a terrific job of explaining in detail. Overall, an adult mystery reader would really enjoy this novel.
