Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When a young girl is found dead, frozen in the backyard of local busybody Lenore Featherjohn's B&B, many presume her an angel because her body looked to be "praying." This tragedy throws the mostly Christian town of Fog Point into shock, fear and endless gossip about who might have committed the terrible murder. Longtime novelist Hall (Dark Water) offers readers an intense mystery against the wintry backdrop of a town cloaked in ice and snow, among Fog Pointers who have long-buried secrets of their own. Unfortunately, she leaves readers not only with the task of figuring out a murder, but also keeping track of what seems an endless cast of characters—business partners Jake and May of the Purple Church; the local minister Ben and his unhappy wife, Amy; Lenore Featherstone and her deadbeat sons, Earl and Carl, to name just a few. Each ultra-short chapter switches point of view and even abruptly jumps to the first person, present tense occasionally. But if audiences can weather the task of flipping back and forth to remember who's who, they will be rewarded with an engaging mystery set in a town experiencing a crisis of faith in more ways than one.

Most of my novels have something to do with the sea. I grew up near the ocean and my love of the ocean was born when I was a child. When I was a little girl I remember sitting on the shore and watching the waves and contemplating what was beyond. I could do that for hours.

One of the things my husband and I enjoy is sailing. In the summer we basically move aboard our 34' sailboat aptly named - Mystery.

Both my husband Rik and I have achieved the rank of Senior Navigator, the highest rank possible in CPS. The U.S. sister organization is the U.S.P.S. My Senior Navigator diploma hangs proudly on my office wall.
What this all means is that I know how to use a sextant and can 'theoretically' find my way home by looking at the stars.

Linda Hall does it again in the latest installment of the Fog Point Series. When Lenore Featherjohn finds a girl frozen in a snowbank, it seems long-hidden secrets are about to see the light of day, leading to dangerous and wide-reaching consequences. Crisp, intense, filled with suspense and intriguing characters, BLACK ICE is a read you won't want to miss.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on March 24, 2007
Format: Paperback
In Fog Point, Lenore Featherjohn welcomes guests to her B&B not caring whether the visitor is alive or otherwise. She simply cares about anyone who passes through her door. She especially goes out of her way when a child regardless of whether the youngster still breathes enters her inn.

A young female ghost receives the royal treatment from Lenore who finds her corpse in a praying like position. While the townsfolk of Fog Point adopt the child as an angel, Lenore hires Jake Rikker to investigate who Jane Doe was when she lived and what happened to her that led to her death. While Minister Ben McLaren fears that the person who killed an apparent innocent lamb could murder again if anyone like the owner-hostess of the B&B gets to close to the truth, his wife Amy is unhappy.

The latest Fog Point thriller (see DARK WATER) is a fascinating tale of fear and belief though the multitude of players with the changing perspectives can be difficult to follow. The story line is action-packed as everyone reacts differently to the deceased "angel". Readers will enjoy Linda Hall's return to Fog Point with this fine Christian thriller.

Linda Hall has done it again--provided her faithful readers with a novel rich in descriptions, filled with real and unique characters, and a mystery that keeps you turning the pages. Black Ice, the second book in the Fog Point Series brings back Fog Point's quirky cast of characters that we all came to care about in Dark Water.

Black Ice opens with Fog Points' local busybody Lenore Featherjohn's discovery of a young girl frozen outside her bed and breakfast entrance. Fearing her sons involvement in the murder of this unknown girl, Lenore moves the body, and positions the girl's hands together as if in prayer. Lenore's decision to alter the body's location and position the hands fuels the local gossip and draws media attention, as they ask, are the folded hands a sign that she is an angel? Does she have mysterious healing powers? Who is she? Who killed her and why?

Thus begins a mystery that involves a cast of thoroughly developed Fog Point characters that includes the resident minister, his wife, and his adopted daughter, along with the local PI team of Jake Rikker and May Williams. But Hall doesn't stop with the locals, as she delves into the girl's past and through varied points of view she brings us characters who unravel the far reaching mystery.

A fan of Linda Hall's writing for years, it wasn't difficult for me to thoroughly enjoy Black Ice. I am drawn to Hall's work because of her rich characters and her ability to engage them in fast moving yet intricate plots. Black Ice is no exception. Hall breaks the stereotype of a minister's wife with Amy who battles her burgeoning unbelief and gives us a glimpse into the real life of a minister's wife.

Format: Paperback
Back then it all seemed so innocent. But now the web of deception has stretched into the future, stealing another life.

This winter Fog Point harbor was unusually crammed with ice. Reporters and photographers snapped endless pictures while snowplows constantly cleared the streets. Most of the locals stayed indoors, and it was rumored that the ice was a bad omen. But that was before the shocking discovery.

Lenore glanced out the back window of her bed and breakfast. She noticed a dark spot in the snow. Had her sons carelessly tossed the garbage outside? It seems they were so lazy at times. Lenore marched outside in a huff. When the truth struck her senses, she inhaled sharply and covered her pounding heart. There, in the wintry snow, was the lifeless form of a young woman. Kneeling beside her, Lenore gently brushed the snow from her icy cheek. A scattering of freckles appeared. Her hair was in a ponytail. She seemed so young. Why, Lenore thought. Why would someone want to hurt her?

No one came forward claiming to know the young woman. But rumor quickly spread that she was an angel, sent by God, to protect Fog Point from impending doom. Had the entire town gone berserk? People were lining up in droves behind Lenore's Bed and Breakfast. They wanted to see where the angel miracle happened. Many prayed in the snow bank, some left gifts, and others came in search of inner peace. Guests arrived and left on a daily basis, but the TV reporter and cameraman stayed for several days before disappearing suddenly. When Jake and May, two part-time investigators, discover that danger still lurked, fear spread like a rushing flood.

After the snarled past eventually connects with the present, the elusive answers are just a stroke away.
