"Heart of Ice" by Lis Wiehl and April Henry

The "Triple Threat Club" is at it again in this latest collaboration of Lis Wiehl and April Henry. Three friends: Allison - prosecutor, Cassidy - TV news reporter, and Nicole - FBI special agent; once again become embroiled in a case of arson and murder that will take all three of them to solve.There are also other story lines interwoven as: Allison is confronted with her very troubled sister Lindsay and the family dynamics that come with drug addiction; Nicole is faced with the possibility of breast cancer and its treatment; and Cassidy is sucked into a domination scheme by the fitness instructor, Elizabeth. Elizabeth likes to be better than everyone else, constantly looking for new "victims." Her goal is to get rid of anyone standing in her way, no matter what she has to plan for them. Then there is Jenna, the reporter who wants to make a name for herself but is caught on the wrong side of a gun. What will happen to each of these women? What is the truth about Elizabeth (Sissy), and will she ever be discovered?

I love this series and while I have read them in order, they can each stand alone as well. We get to meet three strong women who are faced with real problems and real decisions. When one falters, the others are there to pick herm up, just as we should be to each other. The characters are realistic, the storyline interesting, and this book has left me wanting to read more about these characters. I recommend this book to mystery/suspense lovers, both individuals and groups. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher, Thomas Nelson, for the opportunity to read and review this book on my Nook.
