Here’s what Reviewers are saying about Dead on Ice
Mystery and Suspense Galore
I love reading mystery, suspenseful books! When I read the synopsis for Dead on Ice, I knew immediately that I wanted to read this book! Dead on Ice includes romance, mystery, suspense, and murder! When your past catches up to you, you have no choice to but to face it.
We first meet Joshua Thornton in court, who is up against his own cousin Albert. Even after the case is heard, they are still friendly with each other. Later, Albert is found dead. We soon meet Cameron Gates, the homicide detective, who is dating Joshua. Cameron and Joshua work together to solve his death. As they both dig deeper, they discover more dead bodies, secrets and lies that come to light in their investigation.
The whole town’s history comes back to the present and everyone is forced to face how they behaved. Some characters have not changed, while others have moved on and grew up.
Dead on Ice kept me guessing until the very end. Dead on Ice is certainly a page turner. I read this book in less than two days!

Exciting New Series for Lovers of Crime
I’ve had the pleasure of reading the Mac Faraday series and also the Joshua Thornton mysteries, so I was excited hear the author decided to create a new series just for Joshua, Hancock County’s Prosecuting Attorney and Cameron Gates, a homicide detective for the Pennsylvania State Police. The two met on a previous case, and it’s good to see that they are now going to be working together in the Lover’s in Crime mystery series.
The story actually begins many years ago when eighteen-year-old Angie disappears following an evening at the local roller skating rink. The year? 1978.
Years later, Cheryl Smith, the prime suspect in Angie’s disappearance, is found in an abandoned freezer at the home of Joshua’s recently deceased cousin. Cheryl, now known as Cherry Pickens, spent many years in the pornographic industry. How her body ended up in this location prompts another look into the original unsolved case so many years ago.
What Cameron and Joshua find are a trail of lies, deceit, murder and cover-up, as they search for the truth.
This novel has more twists and turns than I’ve seen in a while, but it all adds up to an interesting and unexpected reveal. Many more people are involved in the original disappearance than first expected, and it seems everyone has their own secrets. Trying to unravel the truth from the twisted lies that have remained hidden for so long leads the investigators on quite an interesting chase.
Family and friends of the couple help lighten the mood and provide a homey feel to the story. It will be interesting to see where Carr takes the two next. Although the Mac Faraday series is still my favorite by this author, this new duo has the possibility of ranking a close second.
