Killer Nashville’s Book of the Day / Tuesday, March 19, 2013 / “Heart of Ice” by P.J. Parrish / Reviewed by Clay Stafford

Today’s featured book is Heart of Ice by P.J. Parrish

Heart of Ice by PJ Parrish

I save books from P.J. Parrish for when I know I won’t be interrupted. For “Heart of Ice” even sleep had to wait. I can’t say enough superlatives about this writing dynamic duo. P.J. Parrish is the brainchild of two sisters, Kristy Montee and Kelly Nichols. In all their books, plot and character reign supreme, but where they excel is their wonderful use of location. In every book, including “Heart of Ice,” which takes place on Mackinac Island, location itself becomes a character. I loved this book. Excellent incorporation of past and present on many fronts, all organic to the story. Every story they write … simply … flows. They write stories to get lost in: Realistic. On the edge. Dramatic. Thrilling. Powerful. Unfolding. I’ve seen it written by other reviewers that P.J. Parrish gets better with every book. Not true. P.J. Parrish has been at the top of their game since their very first novel. I salivate when I hear a new Louis Kincaid novel is about to go to press and “Heart of Ice” just tripped me over the top. I’ve read it once; I’m reading it again. Readers: This is a book (and a series) you don’t want to miss. Writers: Studying P.J. Parrish is equivalent to an M.F.A. in creative writing. They are two of the best writers on the planet today.
