    Wheee! What fun.

    What a funny, true picture of high stakes, international figure skating competitions. As a skater, coach and amateur ice show producer myself, as a volunteer at too many competitions to mention, I could feel the tension rise as the final scenes were played out. The descriptions of the various characters involved in the plot are wonderfully close to the real thing. I am looking forward to the next book in the series, 'Missing on Ice.' In the meantime, there are two other good murder mysteries about ice skating. These two, 'Nice Shows' and 'Judge Me Nottingham,' portray the skaters and coaches during the initial hard work and planning before the skaters reach national and international competition levels. And by the way, I'm the author of these two books!

    Combines murder and figure skating -- GREAT

    This is a great cozy mystery. It is the first mystery I've read that combines murder and figure skating and is very well written. Rebecca 'Bex' Levy is a figure-skating researcher for the 24/7 network. It is the World Figure Skating Championships in San Francisco -- the end of her first season. The Russian skater, Xenia Trubin, is awarded the Gold medal and the U. S. skater, Erin Simpson, is awarded the Silver medal. The 24/7 broadcasters, Diana and Francis Howarth, state on the air that they believe Erin skated better and should have been awarded the Gold. They go on to imply that the Italian judge was bribed to vote with the ex-Soviet bloc of judges. Bex is appalled. Then Silvana Potenza, the Italian judge, is found dead. The police believe it was an accident. Bex finds a printout of an email sent to Silvana the morning before the ladies' long program. It lists the ladies' finish order as Xenia first and Erin second. The email was signed Sergei Alemazov, Xenia's coach. Bex finds there are so many suspects and so little time -- she has promised her boss Gil that she'd figure out who killed Silvana before their big show in two days. I am a fan of figure skating, so merging it and murder together truly interested me. I like Bex, she¿s a very likable character. Her job as a researcher helps her have access to and information about the people involved that most people couldn't find. Ms. Adams has done a great job in creating this character. Bex' boss Glen is a bit over the top, but that's what makes him so great. The Howarth's are very believable and are utilized at the right times in this book. This was a great book in what I hope will be a long series. I can't wait to read the next one. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book.
