Winter Frost by Lauren Carr-I Read Book Tour-Review

Winter Frost by Lauren Carr
About the book 

It all started with a chance encounter in the city with Blair, his late wife.

Chris Matheson and the Geezer Squad, working under the guise of a book club, dig into the events surrounding his late wife’s supposed death halfway around the globe. A state department employee shoots himself in the back three times. A CIA operative goes missing. A woman is targeted by an international assassin three years after being declared dead in a terrorist attack overseas. 

Nothing is as it seems. 

In his most personal cold case, Chris fights to uncover why the state department told him that Blair, the mother of his children, had been killed when she was alive. What had she uncovered in Switzerland that has made her a target? Who terrified her so much that she had gone into hiding and why are they now after him? 

And I thought
They just keep getting better and better!  I admit I am a fan of author Lauren Carr.
She has not written a book that I haven’t loved.  Each and everyone is a page turner.

One of the things I like best about how she presents her books is that she includes a
Cast of characters at the beginning.  Which is a huge help because each book
has a lot going on and a lot of characters.   As a fan I know all the regular characters so I don't get 
any confused but it's fun to read the cast.  And is helpful with the new characters.

The characters draw you in along with the plot.

Another thing I really like is how she crosses over the characters from the different series.

In this one Murphy and Triston from the Thorny Rose series are a huge part of the story.
Jessica Murphy’s wife and their dogs make a cameo appearance as well.

The story takes place when Chris and his girlfriend go into the city for a
weekend away.  But before than can even manage dinner Chris see’s his wife
who is supposed to be dead.  But sure enough she is alive and well and running for
her life! 

The suspense starts from page one and continues on a fast and furious ride to the

There were a couple of gasps along the way.  And a “No she didn’t do that”
referencing the author….and thankfully she didn’t ‘Whew’!  Giving nothing away
here….so if you wanna know exactly what made me ‘Gasp’ and ‘What made me
ask the question you’ll have to read Winter Thaw.  I promise you will love it
And you’ll be surprised and shocked as much as I was. 

Winter Frost is a super fun and fast paced ride.  It is super clean.  No bedroom
Scenes and no language. 

I received a complimentary copy.
