HEART OF ICE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Thriller
This novel has a lot going for it, including primary characters who are fully developed and likable, and two strong and compelling plots. But herein is a distraction: The two plots are unrelated except that they involve members of the same family, and they receive equal emphasis, resulting in the impression that two books are being read simultaneously. The engrossing plots proceed apace, but occasionally the time frame of the stories becomes unclear. For this reason, some plot twists confuse. Still, this is an absorbing, enjoyable read.
Mandy Crawford, who's pregnant with her first child, is missing and, surprisingly, her husband seems unconcerned. But Sheriff Emily Kenyon vows to find out what's become of Mandy -- with or without her husband's help.
Meanwhile, Kenyon's daughter Jenna, who works as a consultant for her sorority's national office, may be in danger. The death of a member is followed by another, so suspicions arise that members of the sorority are being targeted. (PINNACLE, Mar., 460 pp., $6.99)
