Heart of Ice – Lis Wiehl and April Henry

About the Book 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?

My Review Book three in the Triple Threat Club novels gives another exciting ride. The authors take a different approach in this book, by revealing our villain early in the book. This book becomes a game of cat and mouse as Elizabeth Avery attempts to manipulate her way to the man of her dreams. Once again, the authors weave sub-plots drawing us into the lives of our trio. In this installment Nicole faces the challenge of her life. As you follow her journey you can feel her pain and understand her fears.I’m not sure I enjoyed this book as much as the first two, the story quickly drew me in. It was a fast paced story that only took me a couple of days to read.

Again I feel the need to give the disclaimer that this book is for an adult audience. The authors tastefully handle the sexual exploits but they are there.  We are dealing with a villain who uses her beauty to manipulate those around her. Also, there is once again scenes where the main characters are participating in social drinking. You will not find a strong spiritual overtone to this book either.  These things do not personally bother me, but in fairness to readers felt the need to address this issue.

I would like to thank Thomas Nelson for the opportunity to review the book, I do this knowing they want my honest feedback, which I have provided.  Blessings!

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.
