Overview

Heart of Ice (Triple Threat Series #3) by Lis Wiehl, April Henry

Elizabeth Avery could easily be the girl next door. But what she has planned will make your blood run cold.

At first glance, the crimes appear random. Arson. Theft. Fraud. Murder. But these are more than random crimes. They’re moves in an increasingly deadly game. And the one element they have in common: a woman who is gorgeous, clever . . . and lethal.

Elizabeth Avery has a winsome smile and flawless figure, but underneath is a heart of ice. She’s a master manipulator, convincing strangers to do the unthinkable. And she orchestrates it all without getting too close. Until now.

When Elizabeth ruthlessly disposes of an inquisitive young reporter, her crime catches the attention of Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce, FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges, and crime reporter Cassidy Shaw. They know they’re dealing with a cold-blooded murderer who could strike at any time. What they don’t know is that they’re already on a first-name basis with the killer.

And one of them may be next on her list.

Heart of Ice was my very first Triple Threat Novel and I can honestly say I don't intend for it to be my last. While I do tend toward young adult books more often than not lately (as my TBR pile can attest), I love a good thriller, horror, or suspense novel as well, and Heart of Ice fit the suspense novel bill nicely. Lis Wiehl and April Henry hit the nail on the head with this novel - the Triple Threat Club, Cassidy, Allison, and Nicole are perfect characters and a great way to rival another famous group of women crime solvers - the famed Women's Murder Club created by James Patterson. With Federal prosecutor Allison, FBI Agent Nicole, and crime reporter Cassidy, the only thing missing is the coroner, but I found that the lack of the fourth member of the club didn't make a bit of difference and truthfully, while I love James Patterson, I've never been able to read any of the Women's Murder Club novels in their entirety like I was this novel. I have a favorite character already - Nicole. She is tough on the outside because that is expected of her as an FBI agent. But she's still a human being and when it comes right down to it, she is just like you and me. She gets scared, she cries, she is a human being. When she gets some life-altering news, you get a taste of just how real she is. I also love Allison and her interactions with her sister Lindsay. There is another story within a story there and it is wonderful. Cassidy and her problems are another matter entirely and frankly, I love that while they are not focused on in this novel, enough background is given to let the reader know that Cassidy is definitely not without her faults. Add to the mix a charismatic villain and you have the makings of a great novel. The stories within the story are ones that can be carried on to other novels in the series and do not detract from the general story itself. I can't wait to read another Triple Threat novel.

The first thing I noticed about this novel is that it has quite a misleading cover--or at least, it fooled me into believing this was going to be a fantasy novel. My own fault for being so presumptive, heh. The second one was that, it was about three women who didn't seem that much different from the characters of James Patterson's Women's Murder Club. The third one is that it is a suspense/thriller novel that has already revealed who the culprit it right from the, well, blurb. To be honest, I didn't really have much faith in this book. But when I started reading it, I found it quite easy to get hooked. The writing was good, the phasing also made for more questions as I expected, given that the culprit's identity has already been revealed. It was different to get into the mind of the criminal and know who she really is from the get-go. But the things she did and the life she lived all still made for an interesting read. Not to mention the three women that make up the "Triple Threat Club". They have been depicted just as well, with their lives efficiently woven into the web of the plot, giving them both depth of personality, and the strength to move forward. The Christian aspect of the story was added in just the right mix without having it rub itself in your face. All in all, it was an unexpected good ride. I can't wait to read this author's next novels! I got a free electronic copy of this book from Booksneeze's review program.

And one of them may be next on her list. The third book in A Triple Threat Novel series, this book can easily be a stand alone. This book is not for the faint of heart. Three women, who work very different careers, unite together to solve murder mysteries. With action packed drama, a fast paced storyline and some pretty graphic descriptions, this book will keep you flipping page by fast page. Some parts were a bit too descriptive and graphic for me, but overall, I would definitely read another of Lis and April's books. Book Sneeze sent me a complimentary copy of this to book to review for them. All opinions are my own.

The killer was just too creepy. It took me a long time to get through this book because of the disturbing storyline. The only reason I finished it was because I had purchased the book and didn't want to feel as if I had totally wasted my money. The Triple Threat Club members were not up to par; Cassidy was completely duped by the main character. The first two books in the series were excellent; this one makes me not want to read anything else by this author.

This is the first book I have read in this series. It was a bit difficult for me to read because of how well it gets into the head of the psychopathic killer. She is a master manipulator using everyone she meets to accomplish her sinister plans. She covers her tracks well (luckily not enough in the end) and lures even the most unsuspecting victims into her web with her beauty and charm. There was quite a bit of violence with a lot of death. It was very well done. It is really a suspense crime novel. I did like the way the 3 triple threat club women work together to solve the crimes. I felt however that there was a large portion of the story that was left untold. I think it ended to abruptly.

I had a chance to read Heart of Ice by Lis Weihl, it is the second on in the series, and I have enjoyed the series so far however I did think this was more intense and a bit more creepy. It was fast moving and kept me on the egde of my seat. If you are into intense thrillers pick this one up. You will not be able to put it down. I got this book from booksneeze, so a thank you to them for another good read!

This was a really fantastic novel! The mystery-even thought we were told the bad guy pretty much right from the get-go-was insidious, the lies, and the people-watching it required, well, it was well crafted, and such a wonderful book! Loved it! The characters all have their various issues going on at the start, like a sister who's made a lot of bad choices, to a lump, to volunteer who doesn't do her own work in making her path, she just takes Cassidy's path and tries to run her over. And as the book goes on, the conflicts rise and rise along with the plot, adding a more personal level to the book, seeing what they're dealing with in their personal lives, and what they're dealing with in their professional lives, and how in some cases, those 2 lives intertwine. The plot, and the way she planned everything, well, Elizabeth was very smart, and conniving, and the thing that made me hate her as a person, was that she thought that she deserved the money and attention instead of a 5 year old boy. That she deserved to take money from a tip at a restaurant, from a collection of money to buy a baby stroller. Well, she certainly deserved what she she got in the end! Yeah, this was a really great book! Check it out, it has great writing, characters, and a plot!

This is my first book about criminology so I was excited for the arrival of the book. Let me tell you something I got kind of scared reading this book because this is actually the third book of the Triple Threat Series and I thought I might get lost between events, even so I gave it a try and let me tell you at first I got a little lost but then I just couldn’t put the book down. This is definitely an amazing/great/well written book. Now I can’t wait until I buy the first two Triple Threat books in the series. Bottom line… YES! I would recommend this book to you.

Elizabeth Avery is a sociopath. She wants what she wants and will stop at nothing to get it. The Triple Threat ladies-Allison-federal prosecutor, Nicole-FBI agent, and Cassidy-news reporter-have no idea who Elizabeth really is and how she is playing everyone in her deadly "game." I loved the first two mysteries in this series. But this one was totally different. It read like a suspense novel, not a mystery. The Triple Threat ladies are there, and it was fun to read what was going on in their lives. But there was no mystery in this story for the reader. We knew who the criminal was from the start. And it was really tough to read her point of view scenes. They were powerfully written, but I just didn't want to. I guess I'm not so comfortable being inside the mind of a sociopath. I wanted to skim her parts but couldn't, because her scenes were the ones with the story in them, if that makes sense. So while I'm glad I read this book, because I love the Triple Threat ladies, it was a tough read and not my favorite way of telling a mystery.
