Présentation de l'éditeur

Dead on Ice is the first installment of Lauren Carr’s new series (Lovers in Crime) featuring Hancock County Prosecuting Attorney Joshua Thornton and Pennsylvania State Police homicide detective Cameron Gates.

Spunky Cameron Gates is tasked with solving the murder of Cherry Pickens, a legendary star of pornographic films, whose body turns up in an abandoned freezer. The case has a personal connection to her lover, Joshua Thornton, because the freezer was located in his cousin’s basement. It doesn’t take long for their investigation to reveal that the risqué star’s roots were buried in their rural Ohio Valley community, something that Cherry had kept off her show business bio. She should have kept her hometown off her road map, too—because when this starlet came running home from the mob, it proved to be a fatal homecoming.

A new series involving Joshua Thornton and his new love interest, detective Cameron...
Unfortunately it is much the same as his other investigations, cold cases being brought back to life, involving him or his family, with a large number of interrelated characters, twisted plots, somewhat improbable... too bad other characters are not more researched and involved as well, such ad cousin Tad.
Another thing too... Joshua Thornton is much too teenage like in his amorous relationship with Cameron. Her cat is cute but a childish detail...
A bit disappointing, I hope the next installment will be more convincing.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Dead on ice 21 mai 2013
Par Clare O'Beara - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Elderly Pennsylvania State lawyer Albert Gordon dies quietly in his rural home - and is found under a mound of junk that the compulsive hoarder had collected, unknown to his neighbours. The Hookstown police get involved when the townsfolk narrowly escape death on cleanup day - a bomb has been planted in the cellar, which explodes.

Local police detective Cameron has her hands full when the body of a woman is discovered hidden in a freezer in the cellar. This porn star named Cherry Pickens disappeared in the 1980s. Cameron's boyfriend is local prosecuting attorney Joshua, widowed. Between his kids and her large black and white Maine Coon cat, which draws shrieks of 'Skunk!' when people notice it, their personal life is hectic. Joshua is also executor to the Gordon estate so Cameron shares case information. The dead woman's fingerprints prove that her real name was Cheryl Smith, a girl who left Hookstown decades ago after she was implicated in the disappearance of another girl in a bout of jealousy.

DEAD ON ICE feels hard to get into: scenes switch and townsfolk are introduced in large numbers at the start; it was hard to figure who the main protagonists were. Only when matters settled down to a straight investigation did I settle in the location. After that the detective work seems solid and the cold cases which arise are linked to the brooding presence of a grudge. "Loyalties have a way of dissolving over the years," comments an older detective, and gradually the truth will out. The couple visit a computer shop and a wealthy winery, a small homestead and a Sunday school class. But matters quickly turn bad, with a shooting, arson and assaults muddying the waters.

DEAD ON ICE is Lauren Carr's sixth mystery and she has filled it with twists and turns. Perhaps the most enjoyable character for me is the large cat, Irving; he livens up many scenes and his meeting with an actual skunk dismays all concerned.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I liked her other books better :) 7 janvier 2013
Par Silver's Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
When poor Albert was found dead in his house under piles and piles of magazines and other things he couldn't throw away, an investigation began. The investigation didn't begin just because of Albert's death but because a dead body was found in the freezer of his basement. A body of someone who disappeared more than 20 years ago.

The investigation went from one character to another, and when I thought I had it figured out it turned out I was wrong each time....I didn't even guess the real murderer in the end. That being said, there were so many characters in this book that I really couldn't keep track of who was who.

The characters were comical in their own ways and likeable, though. I would consider this book to have more of a theme of comedy and love along with an embezzlement going on in the middle of everything instead of a murder.

I like Ms. Carr's books about Mac Faraday much more than these characters, but perhaps they need to grow on me. 3.5/5

I received this book free of charge without compensation from the author in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Author's New Series Kick-Off Book 13 mai 2013
Par Janet - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have never read a Lauren Carr book, but having read this book, evidently the first in a series, I will be reading more.
Evidently the main characters Joshua (small town DA) and Cameron (Local law enforcement, love interest) were introduced in a prior series. I will have to backtrack through the author's catalog and discover their roots. I liked both characters. Joshua is a widower with mostly grown children, strongly linked to the town, having grown up there, and has a well developed sense of humor. He puts up with Cameron's Skunk Twin cat, the evil Irving (Irving definitely brings the funny, and I like that!.
The mystery was paced well, the towns "characters" believable, if not exactly likeable,and the dialogue suited me. I am glad to have discovered a writer who doesn't telegraph their ending! I won't say that I couldn't put it down, but it did hold my interest over several days.
The only thing i found difficult was the wealth of characters introduced. Ms. Carr is probably setting the stage for the series, but it was a bit overwhelming.

I love reading books set in my hometown, but I love it even more when Lauren Carr fools me again. Every time I think I have it all figured out - I don't. She never disappoints.
