Ice Cold Murder is the second novel in the Charlie Kingsley Mysteries series by Michele Pariza Wacek. It is a murder mystery with wit and suspense that will keep readers hooked until the end. Charlie Kingsley is back, and this time, the mystery hits a little closer to her than she anticipated. Accompanying her friend Claire to her grandmother’s will reading should not have been exciting, just a simple weekend spent with her friend. However, when a blizzard marooned Claire, Charlie, and the seven other people in a supposedly haunted house, things were bound to heat up. Before they knew it, someone was dead, and chaos ensued. Once again, Charlie was left to take responsibility and figure out who the murderer was before they all wound up dead. Could she figure it out before it was too late?
What a fantastic story. Right from the start, author Michele Pariza Wacek lured readers in with Charlie’s witty dialogues and dry humor. I felt an instant connection with Charlie and loved her immediately. That was my first sign that Ice Cold Murder was going to be exceptional. My second clue was how interwoven and intricate the story was. I was unable to guess who the killer was, even if the motive behind the killing was somewhat guessable for me. I loved the scenarios, situations, and the overall feel of the story. You hardly come across novels like this that give you an Agatha Christie feel. The mystery enveloped me, the main characters had me hooked, and the fast pace of the narrative maintained my interest in the story until the very end. Well done!
