Publisher's Summary

Beth Rivers is on the run - she’s doing the only thing she could think of to keep herself safe. Known to the world as thriller author Elizabeth Fairchild, she had become the subject of a fanatic’s obsession. After being held in a van for three days by her kidnapper, Levi Brooks, Beth managed to escape, and until he is captured, she's got to get away. 

Cold and remote, Alaska seems tailor-made for her to hide out. Beth’s new home in Alaska is sparsely populated with people who all seem to be running or hiding from something, and though she accidentally booked a room at a halfway house, she feels safer than she’s felt since Levi took her. That is, until she’s told about a local death that’s a suspected murder. Could the death of Linda Rafferty have anything to do with her horror at the hands of Levi Brooks? 

As Beth navigates her way through the wilds of her new home, her memories of her time in the van are coming back, replaying the terror and the fear - and threatening to keep her from healing, from reclaiming her old life again. Can she get back to normal, will she ever truly feel safe, and can she help solve the local mystery, if only so she doesn’t have to think about her own?

Good book, terrible narration!!

I very nearly quit listening to this story several times, even though the plot and setting were interesting. The narration is literally the worst I've ever heard. Its as if a robot from Google Search is reading the book. The cadence is off, its sing songy, there is no emotional depth or realism to the readers voice . Its a real shame because the characters are actually all pretty interesting, quirky and complex, and the story is engaging. I pushed on and am listening to the second book, with the same issues. The series has a lot going for it but whoever chose the reader really did it an injustice.

Thin Ice - A Review

This book starts out with some pretty boring exposition, the book chooses to beat around the bush with what is the driving part of the plot, and what the reader already knows if they read the summary, (If you want to go in blind there are spoilers from the summary from here on out). Specifically that a the main character is running from a kidnapper, the problem is since the main character doesn't remember what he looks like and doesn't mention a single malicious thing he did until past the halfway point that she tells us about something bad he did. The book felt like it was insulting me when it tried to make it seem like the kidnapper was tracking the main character but it was just a fluke, lowing the threat that the kidnapper's aura has. The final part of the book does a decent job of making him a good villain, but it felt too little, too late and I haven't mentioned the rest of the story yet. The other hook in the summary was a that a suicide-perhaps murder happened in the town before the main character arrived. This sub-plot was pretty well written, with some good red herrings, (review now entering spoiler territory) however, the part about the blood spatters being measured in inches. not centimeters was insane. It seems unreasonable that the ME and the main character could have missed that the blood was twice as big as the measurement stated, but regardless of that this was not a good twist because the story kept pounding us with that no one in the town thought that the death was suicide, making this twist feel several steps behind the reader. I also wish that the author alluded more to the actual murderer. The problem comes with that this is a sub-plot, and the book doesn't try to hide it, which makes me wonder why the subtitle "A Mystery" appears on the cover. The book seems much more interested in creating a new world for the author to write in then to make this a good, well rounded story, with the most depth going to to the vast selection of characters, the kidnapper, and the ending hook. I can't recommend this book, but I have a feeling that the next one will be better, so disregard this if the sequels end up being masterpieces.
