Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
At the start of Logue’s tepid eighth mystery featuring Pepin County, Wis., deputy sheriff Claire Watkins (after 2008’s Point No Point), Dan Walker, who’s been celebrating New Year’s Eve alone in his cabin’s new sauna, finds himself locked out of his cabin after a brief naked roll in the snow. Subzero temperatures ensure that he’s frozen stiff by the next morning. Miraculously, Dan revives, but is unable to recall what happened to him, though it appears someone deliberately locked him out. Suspicion falls on Dan’s soon-to-be-ex-wife, Sherri, as well as his spoiled daughter, Danielle, but other suspects soon emerge. Meanwhile, a possible change in Claire’s long-term relationship with Rich Haggard, among other personal issues, complicate Claire’s hunt for who wanted Dan dead. Series fans may enjoy the rough Wisconsin winter and revisiting old friends, but Logue fails to generate much suspense or excitement. (June)
Library Journal
Rushed to the hospital after being locked out of his sauna on a frigid New Year's Eve and almost freezing to death, car mogul Daniel Walker clings to life. If this was an accident, why were his cabin doors locked? In her eighth series outing (after Point No Point), deputy sheriff Claire Watkins investigates. VERDICT Logue captures the biting cold of a Wisconsin winter as Claire follows a trail of clues to a very dangerous denouement. Sure to appeal to Logue's fans and readers who enjoy regional Midwestern mysteries.

Frozen Stiff was a pretty good book, but the mystery here is far too easy to solve. Good read for a day when you don't really want to have to put in much effort.
