As the story continues, we learn more about Brooke and why she left Seattle. We also meet Special Agent Jack Strickland, an agent with the Homeland Security department. Why he is curious about Brooke Breckinridge, and how they react to increasing acts of vandalism at her new home begins the story of Blue Ice.
The first two chapters of the book establish the characters and setting, but are a slow read because of the descriptive language used to set the stage. Establishing that the female lead, Brook Breckinridge, loves fashion is set early with longish descriptions of clothing and her surroundings. It isn't until well into the story that the fact Brook is a lover of clothing and its impact on others manifests itself. The story excels when the descriptive prose is spare and direct, creating a page turning ride through police procedures, inter-agency collaboration, and a solution to a convoluted story of international terrorism, with a bit of romance thrown in.
If you have patience to read through the first few chapters you will be rewarded with an fast-paced story of an international plot intended to weaken the country's agricultural and economic foundations. The author sets the hook for the second book in her series on the last page of the novel.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to anyone looking for an entertaining story. I am sure the sequel will be equally entertaining.
I have not read anything published by Oak Tree Press. Unfortunately, the author's great story is marred by mediocre editing and proof-reading. There are several instances of typos that cause the reader to pause to figure out what is really meant, thus creating a poor reading experience. The most glaring error is in the Table of Contents. Careful readers will find the Table of Contents does not match the pagination in the text. This may not be a problem in the Kindle version. Perhaps Oak Tree Press will do a better job with the next book.
