Heart of Ice by Lis Wiehl and April Henry


STORYLINE:

Elizabeth Avery could easily be the girl next door. But what she has planned will make your blood run cold.

At first glance, the crimes appear random. Arson. Theft. Fraud. Murder. But these are more than random crimes. They're moves in an increasingly deadly game. And the one element they have in common: a woman who is gorgeous, clever . . . and lethal.

Elizabeth Avery has a winsome smile and flawless figure, but underneath is a heart of ice. She's a master manipulator, convincing strangers to do the unthinkable. And she orchestrates it all without getting too close. Until now.

When Elizabeth ruthlessly disposes of an inquisitive young reporter, her crime catches the attention of Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce, FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges, and crime reporter Cassidy Shaw. They know they're dealing with a cold-blooded murderer who could strike at any time. What they don't know is that they're already on a first-name basis with the killer.

And one of them may be next on her list.

MY THOUGHTS:

I got this book without realizing it was the third in a series. And it certainly felt that way. Generally, there's nothing wrong with that, but the first part of the book is about the characters' personal problems. I'm OK with that in small doses and if I already know the characters--neither of which was the case here.

The villainess was scary. The plot was pretty good and moved at a quick pace, pulling me along toward the finish. But I just wasn't a interested as I could have been.

I'd give this book two stars.

I received this book for free in exchange for a review from Booksneeze
