Frozen In Motion
Callie Cassidy Mysteries, Book #3
Lori Roberts Herbst
A murder at the local hockey rink leaves photographer Callie Cassidy nursing a few injuries of her own, but that won’t stop her from trying to catch the killer—before someone else gets iced…
When hockey coach Renata Sanchez asks for Callie’s help exposing her ex-husband’s nefarious activities, Callie hesitates. After all, Renata’s brother, Detective Raul Sanchez, has been known to bristle at Callie’s interference. But with her own second-chance romance on rocky turf and her best friend’s engagement to a man Callie doesn’t entirely trust, she could use the distraction of an investigation.
Before she can even begin her research, a confrontation involving the ex, Renata, and Raul erupts right outside Sundance Studio. Then later in the day, the ex-husband literally drops dead and falls from the hockey arena catwalk—landing with a thud on top of Callie. Renata immediately takes the top spot on the suspect list, with Raul’s name not far behind. With time running out to save her friends, Callie enlists the help of her inquisitive cat and her loyal golden retriever to develop a picture of the true culprit. (Goodreads)
The characters are well rounded and well developed. This time, Callie has to figure out who killed Renata’s ex to keep Renata out of jail. She has lots of suspects and it will not be an easy task. She will need help from her friends and her two pets if she is going to solve the mystery.
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and because of this, I was able to see in my mind’s eye all of the action taking place. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The mystery was well plotted and I was very surprised at who the murderer was.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. Besides the murder, Callie has to figure out what to do about Sam, her boyfriend. I really enjoyed this book and I think you will too.
