Book Tour: Dead on Ice by Lauren Carr
Dead on Ice - Lauren Carr

Dead on Ice is the first book that brings Joshua Thornton and his new girlfriend Cameron Gates together. This being that Cameron Gates is on the scene and investing Thorntons cousin home and finds a bomb in the home. Who planted it? Also who planted Cherry Pickens in the freezer in Joshua Thornton cousin Albert home.

 

Joshua goes along with Cameron while she investigates Cherry Pickens and then runs to have to solve Angie's murder. They do quite a few things. Donny gets involved a bit as well. What would all of Cherry Pickens friends want her dead? Cameron Gates has to figure out who and why all would want Angie and Cherry dead?

 

There are twists and turns to the end. Suspects are all over town in Hancock county. Will they find the killer of both Angie and Cherry? You will want to read to find out.


Lauren Carr is one talented writer. She brings you along to find out who the killer is. One thing I love about her mysteries is that you never know who the murderer is? I have read a few of her books already and reviewed a few of them. You are welcome to read my reviews that are part of this audiobook palooza. My reviews are Cancelled Vows, A Fine Year for Murder, Killer in the Band, The Murders at Astaire Castle, Candidate for Murder, 3 Days to Forever, Kill and Run, Old Love Die Hard, 12 To Murder, Open Season for Murder.

Read-a-thon: 24in48 July 2017 Starts Now!


At least for me it starts right now... er, well, in about thirty minutes, but who's counting?

 

Beginning at 12:01am on Saturday morning and running through 11:59pm on Sunday night, readers read for 24 hours out of that 48 hour period.  You can split that up however you’d like: 20 hours on Saturday, 4 hours on Sunday; 12 hours each day; six 4 hour sessions with 4 hour breaks in between; whatever you’d like.
 


24in48 overlaps one day with COYER's Summer Reading List readathon for reading physical books only off of our Reading Lists--starts on July 23rd and ends on July 30th.  I promise I won't start either readathon until the actual day/time (24in48 in about thirty minutes; COYER in about 24 hours).

Currently I'm reading...

 


And while I know I don't have much of a goal for 24in48, I DO hope to get around to reading the next book in the Steele Street series, mainly for COYER's readathon, once again, starting on Sunday.  Meanwhile, I have family in town this weekend, so may not really get much time to read.  But if I do, I'd like to continue knocking off books from my COYER Summer Reading List, assuming I finish my Booklikes-opoly books first.

Obviously, I'm not going to get to read all of these books, and mainly I want to make sure I finish the above two books, especially The Pretender so I can roll again for Booklikes-opoly.  So, I'm also kind of projecting for the COYER readathon as well.


Readathon Hopefuls:

 


What's everyone else reading this weekend?

DNF: GIlded Cage
Gilded Cage - Vic James

I received a copy from Netgalley.

Another one for the DNF pile. I couldn't get into this one. The society baffled me. I can't get my head around the concept. It was weird and annoying. In this British novel society is still split by huge class divisions. The elite aristocrats at the top run everything and all have some sort of magic ability. The working class have to complete ten years of slavery, where they don't get paid. They an either work in something called slavetowns in factories or domestic work. There's lots of different characters, lots of plots and different agendas, and it's all really really boring. Didn't care about any of it. I made it to 40% but I just don't have any interest in figuring out the plot or the characters. I just can't get my head around ten years of forced slavey in a modern world. Don't get it. At all. And really just don't want to read any more, so DNFing.

Thank you to Netgalley and Pan Macmillan for approving my request to view the title.
