This is the second effort by the husband-wife team, "B.D.Anderson" following their earlier WET FEET. Both novels are set on the small Dutch/French Caribbean island of St. Maarten/St.Martin. Begin here. This story is more satisfying and there are no typos (!) Former NY Detective Jack Donnelly along with bar and grill owner friends Andy and Dana are back (with their protective dog Coby) and some entertaining secondary characters. Chad, for one, is a recognizable stereotype - an exaggeratedly self-dramatizing jewelry store salesman just bursting to tell a good story. It's a familiar gay caricature but no less enjoyable for the brief time he is of use to the plot. A hot young, unfaithful "Desiree" and her tightly laced island cop husband are also familiar types.

Still, the key advance in this novel is a better use of the primary characters notably Jack as he asks the right questions of the local investigating detective J.R. Holiday to advance the investigation. But this is a character waiting for still further development.

And let's hear it for Miguel - a jewelry store worker with a survival instinct as strong as his libido. He is a hapless villain but also ruthless and devious - an increasingly desperate guy with an almost cat-like ability to survive another day. Pursued by everyone you are almost (almost) rooting for him. His rescue while floating in a black-skied Caribbean void is improbable but it's all in the service of an even darker humor as he finds himself lifted into "heaven" and then...well, why spoil the fun.

This talented couple has done it again! As a long-time annual visitor to the Virgin Islands, I can tell you they've captured the pace, beauty and fascinating multi-cultural Caribbean lifestyle to a "T" -- then wrapped it around one cracking good detective story!

From the cruise ship-driven business cycle, to the casual "no shirt, no shoes, no problem" mindsets and topless beaches, to the arcane and at times mysterious workings of island governments, reading "Island Ice" left me yearning for my next visit. I could almost taste that cold Carib beer sluicing down my throat as I sat on my favorite secluded beach in St. John watching the world go by.

And, their follow-on to "Wet Feet" gives readers a chance to get to know the main characters like Jack, Andy and Dana even better.

If you're a state-sider like me, do yourself a favor...let "BD" help you escape to the islands while they captivate you with trying to figure out the next twist in this page-turner of a plot. Confession? I read it straight through! That's just how good it is.

I live in Oregon and just finished the book and it is a great way to spend an Oregon evening reading a book about Caribbean living. It held my attention to the last page. Paints a great picture of life where the vacation never ends. How wonderful to wake up to the ocean every day. The book was fun to read and it put me there on the island with Andy and his wife. I think it would make a great made for TV movie like the lifetime movie network staring Kevin Costner and Cheryl Ladd. This one, like the first book, makes me want to get my passport ready to travel. I can't wait for the next book. Paula L. Oakridge, Oregon

Another great story with characters we adored from the first novel, Wet Feet. Again, fun and quick paced, never a dull minute. This is another page turner. I was glad it was longer! I wanted it to last for awhile. This is another great story with twists you don't quite expect. Kept me on the edge til the end. Looking forward to book 3!

Another good book about St. Maarten, which I have been to many times, and enjoy reading about.
The author BD Anderson have written a few books with the same characters, but just relating to the places in St. Maarten that is written, is a pleasure.
