Publisher's Summary

When Harper and Tolliver are hired to find a missing grandson, they learn that several teenage boys have disappeared from Doraville. Harper soon finds the eight bodies buried in the half-frozen ground, but as she becomes part of the investigation, she learns more than she cares to about the dark mysteries and long-hidden secrets of Doraville: knowledge that could make her the next victim to end up in an ice-cold grave.

    "Gripping Story, Entertaining Read."
    Would you consider the audio edition of An Ice Cold Grave to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version but I would after listening to the audio version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of An Ice Cold Grave?

    The moment when she realises who the real murderer is. Chilling! Also the moment when she realises how many boys are dead and how they died.


    Any additional comments?

    A great read with many surprises. Well read and very entertaining.

    Any additional comments?

    Great narration. I like to list this first as it can make or break a story.

    Loved this story. Easy listerning and very entertaining. Will be impatiently waiting for any new books in audio from this author.

    I really enjoy it when readers with similar reading interests list their favourite authors and series. It really helps me find new authors too follow. Mine are Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Jennifer Estep, Faith Hunter, Molly Harper, Ilona Andrews, Kresley Cole, Deborah Harkness, Nalini Singh, Coreene Callahan and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

    Happy Reading

    Story
    "I was surprised just how much I enjoyed this."

    This is my favorite book from the series. It isn't at all what I expected from a Chalaine Harris novel after reading some of the True Blood short stories, which if I'm honest disappointed me a bit after seeing the TV series. There is nothing flashy or brash about this novel. It is primarily, a very well written detective story which has a great, although very dark plot and held my interest all the way through.

    The paranormal element of the story is actually very subtle because the heroines abilities follow the extremely narrow focus of being able to locate bodies in the nearby area and give cause of death. This ability is exploited to its full potential by herself and her stepbrother/manager to provide a living for themselves but causes constant difficulties, particularly with law enforcement who either disbelieve, or do not understand the limitations of Harper's talents.

    I was talking with a taxi driver the other day and he complained that they never wrote stories about ordinary people in the movies, they're all high-flying, rich and beautiful. I've noticed that unfortunately this is often the case with paranormal fiction and particularly that aimed at women. Charlaine Harris' novels break through all of this. The hero and heroine come from a mostly trailer park background and deal with a multitude of people, in this case a struggling poorer community, with a few wealthier members who have managed to collectively raise funds for Harper's services and the territorial and conflicted local sheriff.

    The characterization in these novels is amazing. You'll end up liking a multitude of people despite their flaws and prejudices. While Harper and her brother have an extremely practical approach to her abilities, which often leads them to be viewed as parasites by others trying to help on the case.

    I've already bought all three novels in The Harper Connolly series available on Audible UK. You do need to read them in order to avoid spoilers but although the first book in the series is not available, reading it is not necessary to enjoy the rest. The narration while not quite five star is still really good. I will defiantly be listening to this series again and would really recommend it.

    Story
    "Not for me"
    Would you try another book written by Charlaine Harris or narrated by Alyssa Bresnahan?

    No


    What will your next listen be?

    Natural Causes: An Inspector McLean Novel, Book 1 by James Oswald [in the middle of it at the moment and it's brilliant!]


    What aspect of Alyssa Bresnahan’s performance might you have changed?

    Just found her voice quite irritating.


    Do you think An Ice Cold Grave needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, really wouldn't want to listen to any more.


    Any additional comments?

    The murder/crime seemed to be secondary to the romance between the narrator and her 'brother' who wasn't her brother [!]. First part ok, final part ok but the middle bit boring. Just not for me.
