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!

"ICE is a strong start to a new series that will have fans of Lauren Carr thrilled to be introduced to another set of memorable and entertaining characters. Carr's Geezer Squad has brought sexy back to mature men and women, whose kickass attitude and smarts sizzle as they melt the clues to those cold cases!"  Laura Fabiani, Library of Clean Reads

"For the whodunit mystery buff who loves ever-increasing suspense and danger, Lauren Carr's newest series offers up a big dose of both. Murder and mayhem seem to be Chris's new companions after returning home following the loss of both his wife and his father. Juggling the parenting responsibilities of his three daughters with his mother is not something Chris was expecting at this point in his life, but life isn't something that goes as planned." 5-Star Review at Blooming with Books

Ice (A Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery Book 1)Ice by Lauren Carr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I do enjoy a good mystery, it just takes the right one to hold me. ICE by Lauren Carr is a page-turning, edge-of-your-seat kind of book. Every detail was pin-pointed. I loved follow Chris though his profession and his lifestyle.

The audio was fantastic. High quality sound. I didn't hear any breathing against the microphone. The narrator, Mike Alger, was really great. This is the first time I listened to him.
