Reviewed by Bob Walch

P.J. Parrish is the pen name of two sisters, Kristy Montee and Kelly Nichols, who have collaborated on this popular mystery series. In this latest Louis Kincaid adventure the authors use their familiarity with not only the character’s home base, Florida, but also Michigan, where one of the sisters now lives.

Kincaid has returned home to bond with Lily, his ten year old daughter (he just recently discovered he was a father), and reunite with his former girlfriend, Joe Frye.

The trip takes an odd detour when, while visiting Mackinac Island, Lily stumbles upon the corpse of a teenager who has been missing for two years. This discovery opens up the cold case into what happened to the girl from a wealthy family who was vacationing on the island.

Kincaid is forced to work with a state investigator who once worked with Joe and that makes for more tension than any of them need at this time. What follows is a story of dark family secrets and a series of revelations that make Kincaid almost wish he never left Florida.

If you have been following this series you’ll definitely wish to read “Heart of Ice” to see how the relationship develops between Kincaid and Frye. First time readers will find this a spellbinding story that will make them want to go back and read some of the previous novels featuring these two characters.
