Not too long ago, I had one goal: Win an Olympic Gold Medal but an injury took me out of the running for the Ladies Figure Skating competition at the last Olympic Games. Nancy Kerrigan was grandfathered in. I was not.
Translation: I was disqualified. DQ'd. I was out in the cold on my keister.
But when an offer to fill a spot on a pairs team lands in my lap, I take it. It seems like an answered prayer—that is until a competitor is found brutally murdered in her room at the competitor's village and my partner is the number one suspect.
I'm going to have to take matters into my own hands. Again. Sweet Kristi Yamaguchi, save me from overly c*cky men.
My name is Sophia Eleonore Dubois and holy mother of Dorothy Hamill my life is still complicated . . .

Layback is book two in Jennifer Rebecca’s Murder on Ice Mysteries. There is also a lot of crossover with characters from her Funerals and Obituaries series. And while Layback can be read as a stand-alone book, I highly recommend all books from both series. There is a hilarious backstory with the grandmas and the Dangerous Dames that you certainly don’t want to miss, and there is also Kane and Sophia’s backstory that is referenced some in this book that might be confusing if you haven’t read book one in the Murder on Ice Mysteries. Layback picks up where Attack Zone (book one) left off. It’s a few weeks later and Sophia is training for her last chance at Olympic gold. Will she make it this time, or will a murder take her out for good? Can her detective boyfriend, Kane f*%#@$! Green figure out who the real killer is before it’s too late? I kind of adore this author’s writing style. It’s personable and humorous and kind of reads like the old fashioned detective shows on TV. Only with lots of sarcastic humor and some sexy times added in. And the “swearing” that happens kind of cracks me up, too. I’m a huge romantic suspense fan but I also like a great romcom. This author’s books combine both and even though this wasn’t my most favorite book of either series, it still had me laughing out loud and kept me up way too late. (Side note: I’m no longer allowed to read Jennifer Rebecca’s books while the hubs is trying to sleep!) NICUnurse’s Rating: When I finished Attack Zone I immediately needed more of Kane and Sophia’s story so I was very much looking forward to this book. There were some parts that I think could have been fleshed out a little better, but all in all, this was a very entertaining story. And now I can’t wait for the next book in the Funerals & Obituaries series! I give Layback by Jennifer Rebecca 4 stars! Grab your copy today but just be sure to read it when other people are NOT trying to sleep or they will be pretty upset with you because it truly has LOL moments!
