When I choose a detective novel or a police procedural I do so because I'm interested in seeing how the clues are developed to catch the perpetrator. I don't want to read about someone's love life. If I did, I'd search for romance novels. I know that sometimes putting a bit of a romance in a story is a way for an author to further develop some of the character's personalities. However, many authors do this exceptionally well without including the element of romance. Some people who read this book will not be bothered about this, and that's their perogative.
The story itself flows smoothly, and has a few interesting developments, but it was not a "grab-you-by-the-seat-of-your-pants" read. I am sure that many people will have enjoyed this more than I did. Without spoiling the ending, I will say that certain things occur which indicate that Kendall will get her man Nash back in book 3 of this series, so I won't be reading that one!
I didn't find typos or any really offensive words or disgusting murders being carried out in which the reader has to digest a person being mutilated and murdered in the most awful way. Murders, yes... but the reader has to deal with most of them after the fact.
Only one complaint about the writing. Most people reading this review will find it picayune, but I think that authors should have good grammar. There is one sentence which reads, "They're all older than her." It should be "she." "They're all older than she." I guess I'm of the generation which had grammar pounded into our heads in school.
If you get all cosy and warm-feeling reading about a lovelorn woman pining for her man, along with a fairly good mystery and an actually well-written book, then you will enjoy this.
Iced Malice is one of the best e-books that I have read this year (2016). Once Ibegan reading I couldn't put it down. The story was ell thought out, balanced and focused. I hope to read more by this author.
Enter Courtney, a writer fascinated with the Fiance Murder case, and she's determined to write a book about them. When she talked to Ross and an old investigator from the case she wasn't expecting to get more than she bargained for. I really enjoyed the character of Courtney, I think it added depth to the story and gave us bits and pieces about the cold case we wouldn't have gotten otherwise.
While all of this is going on Kendall is going home to an empty apartment night after night. The man she has fallen in love with, Aadm Nashland (you meet him in Relative Malice) has taken an undercover assignment in Milwaukee. With him out of the picture for a while Kendall spends her free time with Brynn, an albino with more computer skills than Steve Job. When she's doing some preliminary research for Kendall she comes up on some information she hadn't bargained for. Determined to prove to Kendall she can play with the big girls she follows the leads and you have to wonder if she's walking to her death or stumbling upon the truth.
Just when you think Ms. Madison can't possibly throw another thing at you, she does. Another girl goes missing at the same time Adam is found, beaten and near death. She must choose between the cases on her desk or the man in her heart. When she's told that Adam doesn't remember anything and needs to remember things on his own time, Kendall is angry and throws herself into her work. She must find the missing girl before she ends up dead in a dumpster too. With the help of Courtney and Brynn Iced Malice is brought to a crescendo that leaves you holding your breath and wondering who will come out alive.
Being from the Eau Claire area I really enjoyed reading this book because I could picture all the neighborhoods and places they were from the libraries and churches to the hospital and Water Street. The author does an excellent job describing the backdrop, so even if you aren't from the area you will enjoy this suspense novel. I haven't read Relative Malice, but it's my next read on my kindle. Ms. Madison is an expert at alluding to events that made me want to find out more about Brynn, Adam and Ross in Relative Malice.
