“Heart of Ice” By Lis Wiehl with April Henry
“The Triple Threat Club novels follow three fiercely intelligent women—a TV reporter, a Federal prosecutor and an FBI agent—as they investigate crimes as current as today’s headlines.
The Triple Threat women have faced intense situations before…but never such a cunningly cold-blooded murderer.
Elizabeth Avery is a stunningly beautiful woman. But her perfectly managed exterior hides the ice cold heart of a killer. She ingeniously manipulates everyone who crosses her path to do exactly as she wishes–from crime reporter Cassidy Shaw, who thinks Elizabeth is her new best friend, to a shy young man Elizabeth persuades to kill for her.
As Elizabeth leaves a trail of bodies in her wake, Federal prosecutor Allison Pierce and FBI agent Nicole Hedges must piece together clues from seemingly unrelated crimes. Can they stop her before she reaches her unthinkable, ultimate end-game?”
This is an intense, page-turning book. While the FBI and Federal prosecutor try to figure out the murder of a want to be TV reporter and the bringing of a local house. Another TV reporter digs deeper into the case. Little do they know how much they will find in common on these instances or how close they are to the actual murder.
I love the parts where we see the unconditional love Allison has for her drug addict sister and how she isn’t afraid to open up her house for her. Even after Allison’s carriage.
A few things I didn’t like. Was being left hanging on whether or not Allison and her husband will finally be blessed with a child. What happens with Lindsay, Allison’s sister? Does Nicole find God? Will Nicole open her heart to a Man, Leif? What happens with Cassidy’s career after she “makes the news”? These were all questions I was looking forward to having answered as I read and didn’t.
I did love that everything can together in solving all the murders. And how they worked together in different way. And how Allison trusted God in a lot of what she was doing.
I just felt like I was left hanging for a lot of it. Maybe there will be another book? I hope so. I really fell in love with these characters and want to see them more.
This was a great, Christian, women, crime book. If you love a good clean crime book I would totally recommend it to you.
