As part of this book tour, I had the opportinity to read all four books.

Book Details:
Book Title: ICE  (A Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery #1) by Lauren Carr
Category:  Adult fiction,  364 pages
Genre:  Mystery
Publisher:  Acorn Book Services
Release date:  February 26, 2018
Content Rating:  PG-13 (Lauren Carr's books are murder mysteries, so there are murders involved. Occasionally, a murder will happen on stage. There is sexual content, but always behind closed doors. Some mild swearing (a hell or a damn few and far between). No F-bombs!
"Lauren spins an amazing web of lies, murder and love that will have you on the edge of your seat...I love the way Lauren spun this novel - I could not put the book down! I had to know what happened to Sandy and her unborn child and how this disappearance was tied into a string of other murders. I never saw the end coming but it was perfect and suited the novel. A definite must read novel!" 5-Star Review by Carla at Working Mommy Journal
Book Description:
When Sandy Lipton and her unborn child disappeared, the court of public opinion found young Chris Matheson guilty. Decades later, the retired FBI agent returns home to discover that the cloud of suspicion cast over him and his family has never lifted. 

With the help of a team of fellow retired law enforcement officers, each a specialist in their own field of investigation, Chris Matheson starts chipping away at the ice on this cold case to uncover what had happened to Sandy and her baby and the clues are getting hot!

I received an advance review audiobook for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Lauren Carr and iRead Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

I am a huge fan of Lauren Carr’s previous series’ and jumped at the chance to be a part of this tour. I love her writing style and ability to weave and intricate mysteries that immediately suck the reader in and doesn’t let go until the story ends.

I listened to this book on audio while doing Sunday chore and cooking routine. I enjoy listening to books while doing these types of tasks because they allow me to immerse myself in the story. Ice is the first book in the Chris Matheson Cold Case series. In this book, we meet Chris, now retired,  as he returns home to find out the cloud of suspicion cast over he and his family never lifted.

When rumors of Chris’s past start circulating his oldest daughter’s school, Chris must defend himself while keeping his family safe. With the help of the women in his life (specialists in their own areas), Chris starts chipping the ice off this cold case to find out who is responsible for the disappearance of Sandy Lipton and her unborn baby.

This book is a delightful blend of family saga and mystery filled with twists and turns you won’t see coming. I highly recommend and can’t wait to listen to book 2!
