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!

Book Description:

Dead on Ice is the first installment of Lauren Carr’s new series (Lovers in Crime) featuring Hancock County Prosecuting Attorney Joshua Thornton and Pennsylvania State Police homicide detective Cameron Gates. 

Spunky Cameron Gates is tasked with solving the murder of Cherry Pickens, a legendary star of pornographic films, whose body turns up in an abandoned freezer. The case has a personal connection to her lover, Joshua Thornton, because the freezer was located in his cousin’s basement. It doesn’t take long for their investigation to reveal that the risqué star’s roots were buried in their rural Ohio Valley community, something that Cherry had kept off her show business bio. She should have kept her hometown off her road map, too—because when this starlet came running home from the mob, it proved to be a fatal homecoming.

My Review
Dead on Ice (Lovers in Crime Mystery Book #1)by Lauren Carr was the first book in this series and I have to say that it was an exciting start at that!  I liked the fact that the book did not just follow a detective, but also a prosecutor as it added a depth to the book that many mystery crime books lacked. I enjoyed the legal perspective in addition to that of the detective. I am super excited to begin reading the next book so make sure to check out my review of Real Murder I'll stay away from spoilers so it'll be safe to read even if you have not read the book yet!
