  • An excellent who-done-it

    I received a free electronic ARC of this excellent police procedural novel from NetGalley, author Carolyn Arnold, and publisher Bookouture. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read Her Frozen Cry of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work. I am always pleased to recommend Carolyn Arnold to friends and family. She writes excellent who-dun-its, with personable protagonists and enough twists and turns in the story to keep us on our toes. I try to set aside enough time to finish the Arnold book I've last received as otherwise, I lose too much sleep. Her Frozen Cry is the fifth of the Amanda Steele Series. The novel is completely stand-alone, but the series is rich with intrigue and emotion. We are back in with the Prince William County Police Department, riding with Amanda and Trent, homicide detectives who are faced with the sudden death of a fairly young, healthy woman. Alicia Gordon was a wife, mother, and CEO of New Belle, a very successful cosmetics company located in the county. Lab works tell them she was killed by poisoning, an overdose of Phenobarbital. Phenobarbital is the drug used by veterinarians to put ill or aging pets to sleep. It is occasionally prescribed for people in much smaller doses to combat depression. Where it was obtained and how it was administered are unknown, but her death is now considered murder. And the 'how' and 'why' questions are where Amanda and Trent shine. But this time, they must work without the support and encouragement of their Sargent - Malone is in Intensive Care in a coma. And at home, Zoe is showing signs of obvious stress, but her problem is not shared with either Amanda or Zoe's twice-weekly session with her counselor. Amanda knows that this case is taking too much of her family time, time that should be spent helping Zoe adjust to the death of her parents and the new circumstances of her life, something Amanda didn't have to consider for the seven barren years between the death of her husband and daughter, and the adoption of six-year-old Zoe Parker after the murder of her only family, her parents. Thank goodness for the assistance they are receiving from Zoe's Godmother, schoolteacher Libby Dewinter. And for Trent's understanding. Much as she loves her job, Amanda has to prioritize Zoe's needs.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Cracking Read

    Her Frozen Cry is the fifth instalment in Carolyn Arnold's Detective Amanda Steele series, set in Virginia. With its excellent plot and comfortable pacing, I had difficulty putting this book down between chapters. Her Frozen Cry was such a compelling read, and I relished every moment. Detective Amanda Steele is really well-drawn - a determined, passionate though sometimes a reckless woman who had an inclination to be acerbic with her colleagues. In Her Frozen Cry Alicia Gordon, a thirty-odd successful entrepreneur and the owner of her cosmetics company, a mother, and wife to Tony, is found dead in a log cabin in Gainesville, Prince William County, Virginia sitting on a couch and partially covered by a wool blanket. This riveting tale was complex and Carolyn Arnold brilliantly builds the suspense. The intoxicating story also allowed the reader to learn more about protagonist Amanda, especially the dynamics of her home life around her adopted six-year-old daughter, Zoe. Danger, drama, along with several twists and enough mystery and intrigue to compel me to read late into the night, this was an absolutely cracking piece of crime fiction, superbly delivered and the ending is surprising. I'm keen to devour book 6, Last Seen Alive. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Obsessed with Carolyn's Books!

    I finally figured one out! I am a huge fan of Carolyn Arnold’s writing and have read several, several of her books. Never, before Her Frozen Cry, had I solved the crime before the characters, but I did this time! Her Frozen Cry was a superb mystery with several suspects surrounding suspect circumstances that almost didn’t piece together. {Keyword: almost} I love that Ms. Arnold’s books read together, almost like a soap opera. Previous books have set us up for things that occurred in this book, and things that occurred in this book have set us up for the future. The story brings pieces of Amanda’s past to the present, as well as reunites us with her partner, her chief, her family, and her adopted daughter Zoe – as well as pieces from Amanda’s past books in the series. (Don’t let that stop you from reading Her Frozen Cry. Carolyn Arnold does a fantastic job of filling in any gaps that may have been mentioned in the past so that each book can be read as a stand alone or can be read as a part of the bigger series.) Her Frozen Cry held a big mystery, a bit of drama, a hint of romance, and a heart stopping scare. It took no time to read because I never wanted to put it down! As mentioned previous, I am a big fan of Carolyn Arnold’s mysteries and highly recommend all of her books!
