Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Heart of Ice by P.J. Parrish

Louis Kincaid a former cop who now is a P.I. finds himself precipitated into a very cold case on an island by no other than his long lost daughter, Lily. 

These authors seem to get better with each book.  I liked South of Hell better than the previous one and I liked this one even better.   Louis is shown as a character who is soul searching for an identity for himself and for a victim.  I like the way the show Louis’s susceptibility to seeking his daughter’s good will.   Rafsky is well done as a damaged person struggling to survive his personal ghosts.  

The sisters do a great job in capturing the emotions of a wide range of characters in this book.  Joe Frye, Louis’s love interest, does not have as large a role in this particular book. She has an iron grip on Louis’s heart that he does not seem to recognize.  Louis is a conflicted person, flawed and sometimes clueless.  I think that is one of the reasons he is easy to identify with.  The characters in these books are brought to reality by their flaws and foibles.   They seem real so the story seems real. 
I highly recommend the book.

 This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
