Cami Brooks and her best friend Pinky are looking to hire some extra help for their two shops that are open into each other. They hire an old school friend and a customer to help them prepare for the holiday season. Unfortunately the old friend ends up dead in the bathroom from a poisoned cup of coffee. Emmy, the once customer, now employee is arrested for the murder but Cami doesn't think she could have done it. Cami is smart and asks a lot of questions to try to find the real killer. This puts her in danger which Clint, the local assistant police chief is not too happy about. The feelings between Cami and Clint run hot and cold adding lots of tension between them. I really like the dynamic between the characters. Cami and Pinky along with their old friend Erin have a solid bond. I enjoy the way they interact together in a believable way to enrich the story even more.

Dollycas’s Thoughts I liked these characters in Snow Way Out as you saw from my review yesterday. They are even better in The Iced Princess. I knew Cami was adopted by her aunt and uncle when she was just a little girl, after her parents had died, but the connection she has with her deceased mom really resonated in this story. You see pennies happen to appear out of nowhere when Cami is troubled or just needing a sign of love. I don’t know why this didn’t stand out to me more in the first book. I wish I had a connection like that with my mom, my dad, or my son. Reading about them in this story just gave me a warm feeling. We have 2 new characters in this story, Molly Dalton and Emmy Anders. Molly was one of Pinky and Cami’s classmates who married very well but is bored being home. Emmy is an older retired woman who has some time on her hands. Cami and Pinky had been talking about hiring some extra help for the holidays so they offer both a them part-time employment. On their very first day tension is in the air and one of them dies. The last body was found in the park, this one is right in their store. Can Cami get to the truth and find why someone was killed in her store on their first day of work? She finds out there are more than the obvious suspect but can she get the police to see that too? This story moves at a fast clip. Secrets from long ago are revealed and could have monumental consequences. There are several twists to keep us readers on out toes. This mystery was very well written and plotted. I liked the start of a new romance. I enjoyed the small bits of comic relief to keep the story from getting too heavy. The characters are growing too. I really like Cami’s adoptive parents. Beth is having chemo treatments and Eddie tries to stay by her side or keep her close by so he can take care of her even though she is a very independent woman. They are so upbeat and have such a positive outlook even after all they have been through, and they have raised their children to be the same way. Oh and don’t forget the beautiful snow globes. After reading this story and Snow Way Outback to back I wanted to give everyone snow globes for Christmas.

THE ICED PRINCESS is a cool second installment in the Snow Globe Shop Mysteries. Author Christine Husom has created a series that really pulls the reader in. I enjoy spending time in Curio Finds, protagonist Cam’s shop and Brew-Ha-Ha, her friend Pinky’s coffee shop. I can always envision myself walking through the open arch that divides the two stores. I love the interaction between the two friends. It makes me long for small town life with a quaint shop of my own. This second story in the series is steps above the first book, SNOW WAY OUT, which was a really good. THE ICED PRINCESS is a well written, wonderfully plotted mystery that had me eagerly turning the pages. With as many suspects as snow in a globe, Ms. Husom really had me flurrying for an answer. It wasn’t until the surprising reveal that it all became clear. I know I never would have guessed it on my own. Author Husom has a winner with THE ICED PRINCESS. Shake-up your reading list with this book today! A fun snow globe project can be found in the back of the book!
