Heart of Ice

Title:  Heart of Ice (Triple Threat Novel #3)
Author:  Lis Wiehl with April Henry
Pages:  324
Year:  2010
Publisher:  Thomas Nelson
Cassidy Shaw has met a new friend and soon introduces her to her two other best friends, Nicole Hedges and Allison Pierce.  Cassidy will do anything for a story for her job as crime reporter.  Elizabeth Avery is Cassidy’s new friend and is a master manipulator.  She cons Cassidy into buying her new clothes and lies fly out of her mouth as easily as air. Cassidy has no idea her new friend is a sociopath, an expert liar, as well as a murderer.  Cassidy feels empty inside and thinks maybe Elizabeth’s friendship can help fill that void.
Nicole discovers something that will change her life forever.  She pushes away Leif Larson, who she had begun to think of as her boyfriend.  She tells no one about what is stressing her out initially.  She thinks she can handle it on her own.  She dives in to work, trying to find out who killed a young intern reporter at Cassidy’s TV station.  She is also helping Allison gather evidence to convict another murderer, who is also a medical student.
Allison is faced with a decision regarding her down-and-out sister, who has reappeared in her life and begins to live with Allison and her husband as she has nowhere else to go.  Lindsay promises she is clean and sober and has left her loser boyfriend behind.  Allison also knows something is wrong with Nicole, but can’t get a straight answer from her.  Once she finally learns what is going on with Nicole, she decides to pray for her and show her Christ by loving her and supporting her with mercy and compassion.  Allison is also intent on catching two criminals and putting them in jail for a very long time.
While there is a ton of action and lots of thrills, an interesting and entertaining plot, I really wish there were no sexual situations in the story.  The plot moves along quickly and I couldn’t put the book down.  I have really come to enjoy these three female characters and almost feel like they are friends of my own.  I hope the next book can maintain the high energy, but without the sexual situations.  The next book in the series is titled, Eyes of Justice.  I look forward to reading about the Triple Threat Club’s latest adventure in fighting crime.
My rating is 4 stars.
