Claire Hanover, her husband and their grown daughter, Judy, are vacationing at a ski resort in Colorado when Stephanie Contino, the sister of Judy's boyfriend, is found dead. Was it murder or just an unfortunate skiing accident? As Claire endeavors to find the answer, she uncovers some terrifying secrets about the Contino family and soon realizes that her own daughter's life is in jeopardy.
I highly recommend this book!
author--"Sounds of Murder"
The second in the Claire Hanover series finds her on the ski slopes with her family. Whats starts as a nice domestic vacation turns dark when a family friend is killed while skiing in an apparent accident. But Claire has some serious doubts, and even after a witness is killed right after talking to Claire, the police seem reluctant to tie the deaths together. By the time they finally begin to connect the dots, Claire's entire family is in danger, particularly her daughter, whose boyfriend may be linked to an international criminal gang. Can Claire solve the secret behind these killings, or will she join the growing list of victims?
This story will keep you on the edge of your ski lift until the end. The skiing scenes are done well, (even I could follow them), the characters are well developed and you can even get a lesson in basket design if you need a fresh gift idea.
Beth Groundwater also writes the Rocky Mountain Outdoor Adventures mystery series, where she puts her knowledge of the great outdoors to good use.
