Ice Cold Murder (Charlie Kingsley Mysteries)
by Michele Pariza Wacek
I found Ice Cold Murder to be a very entertaining read. Had I read previous books featuring Charlie this book would have been a Perfect Escape (5 stars) but because I need to get to know Charlie better it was An Enjoyable Giveaway (4 stars). Stay tuned as I get caught up on this character

Ice Cold Murder is an exciting, charming cozy mystery with wonderful characters and a thrilling mystery. I definitely recommend it!
~Christy’s Cozy Corner
When Charlie agrees to accompany her friend Claire to her late grandmother’s reading of the will, she assumes she is simply there for moral support.
She doesn’t expect things to get so … strange.
It’s odd enough that it takes place over a weekend, but that’s just the beginning …
They also need to stay in Claire’s grandma’s supposedly haunted house with Claire’s estranged family.
Things get even worse when a huge storm snows them in. No electricity, no phone, and no way out.
Throw a dead body into the mix, and there’s no question it’s now the world’s worst family gathering. Ever.
At least Charlie brought lots of tea, which she’s going to need as she races to solve this closed-circle mystery before her friend’s dysfunctional family get-together results in anyone else being murdered.
Meet Charlie. Better known as “Aunt Charlie” from the award-winning Secrets of Redemption series. She’s back, making teas and solving cases in this funny, twisty, cozy mystery series set in the 1990s in Redemption, Wisconsin.
The characters are well rounded and well developed. Charlie agrees to go with her friend, Claire, to have her grandmother’s will read. She thinks it strange that it happens over a long weekend but she goes to lend moral support to her friend. Little does she know that there is a blizzard that hits and strands them. And when the family lawyer is killed Charlie will have to figure out who in Claire’s family is a murderer.
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The mystery was well plotted and not easily solved. I was surprised at who the murderer was.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. There was a lot of tension in this book and I really enjoyed it.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
When Michele was 3 years old, she taught herself to read because she wanted to write stories so badly. It took some time (and some detours) but she does spend much of her time writing stories now. Mystery stories to be exact, ranging from psychological thrillers to cozies, with a dash of romance and supernatural thrown into the mix. If that wasn’t enough, she also hosts a virtual book club you can check out and join (for free!) at MPWNovels.com.
Michele holds a double major in English and Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Currently, she lives in the mountains of Prescott, Arizona with her husband Paul and southern squirrel hunter Cassie.
