I'm always searching for the next great murder mystery/serial series. This book was quite intriguing, and kept me very engaged. I didn't feel it was too scary, though it wasn't boring either. I also feel like this would be the perfect winter horror read, because it's based in the dead of winter.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a good thriller...
Well, the #24in48readathon has officially come to a close. I only read for one day this time so I only got to finish 1 book (though I‘m SO close to finishing my audiobook too) and I gotta day, 14 hours and 40 minutes isn‘t too shabby a time considering I spent yesterday crafting with the girls! I can‘t wait for the next #24in48!
So objectively this was not a good book. In fact it was prett bad - as a thriller the attempts to create intrigue were transparent and as a police procedural it really needed police who followed some sort of procedure. And yet.... I stayed up late to finish it and really liked the characters. I‘d probably give another of the series a go if only to check in and see how they get on !
I was walking through Target the other day and had to stop and take a picture because it would work for the #shessocold prompt. People probably thought I was crazy.

The covers to this series are really eye catching, & I was looking forward to reading them, but after this one I have changed my mind.
The characters were more like moody teenagers than adults, police officers to boot. Basic errors & ‘shake your head‘ moments such as attempting to question a potential witness in a pub where anyone could overhear are frankly ridiculous. 2⭐️
This is a well played out mystery that will keep you guessing till the end.
I used real ice and a frosty filter to get desired effect for this picture #bookphotography
Kate was tasked with tracking down a vicious serial killer, until he found her.
Kate lives a quiet life on the English coast. One day she receives a letter from someone in her past, she is pulled back into the twisted mind of a murderer she knows only too well - and into a case only she can solve. Twists, turns and a shocking ending, NINE ELMS is unputdownable.
NINE ELMS is now available to pre-order, and is set to be released 5th November 2019.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Very good thriller that I could not put down! Definitely recommend for anyone who loves a good “who-done-it”

So good! I couldn't put it down. Erika Foster has nothing to lose because she's already lost it all and her drive for justice makes for a gripping story.
#WinterWonderland Found this title yesterday while going through the #BookBargain section of #BookDepository
This title caught my eye; a woman is found #Frozen in a sheet of ice in a London park. Her hands are bound, similarly 3 prostitutes have all been discovered in the same manner, strangled, bound & #frozen.
The Girl In The Ice is a gripping read with many 'where is this going?' moments. Foster leads a zealous murder investigation to find out the truth. She's not a likeable character; brash, rude & unrelenting but she is about getting the job done right! I was gripped by the good pace which shows the frustration of an investigation slipping away.
It is another rather warm day so I'm starting a book that promises to chill you to the bone. A body found in the ice turns out to be a socialite but how does she link to the deaths of 3 prostitutes? DCI Erika Foster must uncover the truth before the killer can close in

When the body of a woman was discovered beneath a thick sheet of ice in a South London park, she appeared to be a beautiful young socialite with a #perfectlife . Investigations led by Detective Erika Foster revealed a connection between the victim and the killings of three prostitutes, all found strangled, hands bound and dumped in water.
Sounds like a good crime thriller with good reviews on GR. Stacked! 😊
#TheGirlInTheIce is a fast-paced mystery featuring Detective Chief Inspector Erika Foster, a brilliant cop who takes risks that don't always pay off. A second installment from #RobertBryndza is forthcoming.⭐⭐⭐⭐
Thanks to #NetGalley for an Advance Reader's Copy. #NetGalleyTBRAttack
Day Two: #ReadingResolutions photo challenge -#CreepyCharacters I had a hard time picking this morning. There are sooooo many books with creepy characters. I almost picked You by Caroline Kepnes because Joe creeped me out a ton. Felt like I needed 17 showers after reading each chapter. The Girl in the Ice is also a good one too tho!!! Anyone else think this was creepingly good? 😁
🐈Decently paced thriller w/good suspense & intrigue.
🐈MC is gutsy & empathetic towards victims.
🐈Women could‘ve been written more realistically; certain traits show the author is amateur when writing from female perspective.
🐈Lesbian officer w/family who‘s portrayal felt natural & normal.
🐈Decent 1st instalment.
🐈TW: rape, animal & physical abuse, ableist language, racist commentary towards Eastern Europeans, mildly sexist comments.

I nearly ran out of time to read this as it was due back at the library so did speed a little to the end. It was a good read though. Erika is not your typical detective, she's been through a lot and isn't quite through it all yet. We see her make mistakes and develop as a character as the book goes on. I did suss out who was behind it but not right away which was good.
Tried this one awhile back and couldn't get into it. Debating trying again but when I saw it was due at the library, I was happy to give it back. Just couldn't get into it. Part of the reason was the English/ British spelling. I'm a stickler for spelling and seeing words like "kerb" instead of "curb" was bugging me. #cantwinthemall

Altro giro altro thriller, anche questo novità del 2017. Sto raccogliendo libri per le meritate vacanze estive e mi sto facendo prendere un po' troppo dalla smania da acquisto compulsivo!

The blurb on the cover doesn't lie--this is a gripping thriller! I couldn't put this down! Erika's coming back to the force after being off for a bit after losing her husband. The case she comes back to is a doozy, and you won't want to stop reading it! #bookrecs
