    Olympic pairs figure skating hopeful Christine Allen arrives in

    Olympic pairs figure skating hopeful Christine Allen arrives in Cabot Cove to train with her partner, Russian skater Alexei Olshansky, under the instruction of former gold medalist Brian Devlin; one a perfectionist with a quick temper and the other a chauvinist, both of whom manage to offend many people with Christine caught in the middle. A series of "accidents" begins to occur, making it apparent that someone wants one or all three of them to fail and when one of them is murdered, mystery writer Jessica Fletcher tries to discover who is behind it all and why, putting herself in harm's way as she gets closer to the truth.

    For the most part, this had a good storyline. A lot of time is spent on the characters and relationships but not in a way that really adds significantly to the plot. One problem I had with it is that it took several chapters to get to the murder and I was starting to get bored with everything leading up to it. Once I got to that part of the story though, the rest went pretty quickly and kept me interested to the end when the killer is revealed.

    Overall, I think fans of this series and the Jessica Fletcher character will enjoy this story.

    I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

    an engaging whodunit

    In Cabot Cove, Maine, Olympic Gold medalist Bruce Devlin trains promising figure skating pair Christine Allen and Russian Alexei Olshansky. Christine does not like either male as her coach is a demanding perfectionist who rejects anything less than the best; her pompous partner believes he is Russia's gift to the American female population. Still at the Cabot Cove Ice Arena she endures both as they are her platform to success in skating pair competition.

    However, accidents begin to occur with a frequency that makes local Dr. Seth Hazlitt feel they are deliberate. Soon afterward Alexei is murdered and another skater Jeremy is hammered into a coma. Sheriff Mort Metzger and novelist Jessica Fletcher investigate Skating on Thin Ice.

    After the mostly recent road tour (see A Slaying in Savannah, Madison Avenue Shoot, Queen Jewels and Nashville Noir), Jessica returns home to Cabot Cove where she investigates the Alexei homicide and related felonies. Her being back in Maine is a two edged sword as that locale has been the prime place for the myriad of books and the TV series, but also brings a deja vu feel to the plot. Still this is an engaging whodunit in which readers will never look at a Zamboni in the same way.
