Five Stars of Cold Entertainment!
Aptly titled, “Ice Blue” is an action packed page turning mystery thriller with a steamy romance thrown in to keep things interesting. Susan Rea drops the reader right into the middle of the action with tension and suspense that builds and builds.
Rae tackles an important theme and uncovers the ugliness of human trafficking in this story that takes place during a Chicago winter. When the lovely and capable paramedic, Angela DeLuca arrives at the scene of an accident on an icy highway, she meets up with ICE agent Troy Deavers. Their paths cross several times before Angela and Deavers end up in a predictable and cliche’ romance. When Angela finds an abandoned baby on her doorstep, the mystery of where it came from begins.
I really enjoyed the tension between all of Rae’s characters, but I especially appreciated the courage this author took to expose an important issue plaguing our society. Rea is my hero for placing the human trafficking issue in the United States at the forefront of good fiction. James Patterson can stand aside as I can’t wait to read the third volume of the DeLuca series when it comes out next year.
Thanks Susan Rae for providing me with a review copy.
