The Ice Man Succumbeth
Private-eye-in-training Mira James loves Minnesota's crisp January days, as long as she can spend them in the arms of hunky Johnny Leeson. But when Mrs. Berns' erratic Zamboni driving uncovers an icebound dead man, Mira's cold-weather tranquility threatens to melt away.
With a frozen corpse in the lake and a freak January thaw descending on town, neither Johnny nor generous portions of high-octane comfort food are enough to ease Mira's frazzled nerves. If Mira can't figure out who's behind the murder, the next time she feels sub-zero temperatures, it may be because she's sporting a toe tag in the town morgue.
January Thaw is perfect for readers who love to escape into the humorous mysteries of Sarah Strohmeyer, Janet Evanovich, Denise Grover Swank, Gina LaManna, Margaret Lashley, Amy Vansant, Carl Hiaasen, Chelsea Field, and Stephanie Bond. If you love to laugh while reading a heart-pounding mystery, then this series is for you
