Book Description:


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.



My review:
I first met Joshua Thornton and Cameron Gates in Lauren's book Shades of Murder. I really liked the character int at book so decided I had to check out Book and series to see how much I liked them as the main characters. I am so glad I did. I like them just as much as Mac Faraday and Archie if nt more. I really love Cameron's attitude. She is great. I am sure I am going t love the rest of the series as much I have this book. I will also have to get a hold to the Joshua Thornton series so I get a better look at his past.

Yep I am a huge fan of Lauren Carr's I have read or listened to several of her books. I cannot get enough. I love her writing style and the twists and turns she tosses in all through the book. I feel like I am investigating cases along with Detectives. Every time I think I have it figured out a new clue is dropped and makes me rethink my assumptions.

Dead On Ice is the 1st book in the Lover's in Crime Series. Joshua's Uncle passes away in a freak accident. While checking on his Uncle after no one has seen him for a few day not only do they find his body but they also find out he is a hoarder. While family and friends are helping to clean out the house a bomb is spotted in the basement. Everyone barely gets clear when the house blows up.

Cameron and Joshua set out to find out who and why the house was bombed they run across an old freezer in the basement. They are surprised to find the mummified remains of a woman. Once the body is ID'd they find out the woman in the freezer was a Porn Star in the 80's, but more then that she was the main suspect in a murder of a teenage girl she wen to school with. They are all left with more question then answers.

They have to figure out who killed Angie, the teenager. Who killed Cheryl aka Cherry Pickens the porn star. Who put Cherry's Body in the freezer. And the big question is WHY?

Put your seat belt on for this one and maybe take a Dramamine. This book is in high speed with tons of twists and turns.

I did listen to the Audiobook. Mike Alger is the narrator. I have listened to a few of the books he has narrated and love the expressiveness of his voice. He does a great job of letting you hear all the emotions in the story. I really enjoy listening to him.
