"Winter Frost was an entertaining, at times humorous read with suspense, some surprises, and even cute animals in the mix." Review of Winter Frost by The iRead Review
It all started with a chance encounter in the city with Blair, his late wife.
Chris Matheson and the Geezer Squad, working under the guise of a book club, dig into the events surrounding his late wife’s supposed death halfway around the globe. A state department employee shoots himself in the back three times. A CIA operative goes missing. A woman is targeted by an international assassin three years after being declared dead in a terrorist attack overseas.
Nothing is as it seems.
In his most personal cold case, Chris fights to uncover why the state department told him that Blair, the mother of his children, had been killed when she was alive. What had she uncovered that has made her a target? Who terrified her so much that she had gone into hiding and why are they now after him?
Winter Frost is the second installment of Lauren Carr’s Chris Matheson Cold Case mystery series, and it did not disappoint! In this book, Chris, and the Geezer squad tackle Chris’s most personal cold case as they try to uncover why the state department told him his late wife and mother of his children is dead, when she’s not.
Under the guise of a book club, they dig into the details surrounding his wife’s death on the other side of the world. When a state department employee dies and a CIA agent goes missing, and his late wife targeted three years after her death. Nothing is as it seems.
I listened to this book as well. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing this story to life. The characters are eclectic, and their diversity brings depth to the story which allows me to completely immerse myself. I absolutely adore the Gezer Squad! Their antics had me laughing out loud as I read.
As I’ve said before, 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. This series continues to be 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 3!
