"Deep Freeze" by Lisa Jackson
"Deep Freeze" is my last Blogroll Game book. I kinda liked it. It was a little big long (500 pages) to give too few clues about who the serial killer was. The red herrings were too obvious so you knew the actual perpetrator was someone seldom mentioned.
Jenna Hughes was a famous movie star who gave up Hollywood after her sister's death on a set. She takes her two daughters and moves to a small town in Oregon. And a "fan" begins killing women trying to make a wax museum of sorts out of the bodies in a process too complicated to get into here. Enter the predictable taciturn sheriff.
This was supposed to be one of those "romantic-suspense" mysteries, but the romance was very scanty. The murder plot was very suspenseful and kept me glued to the book. Jenna's teenage daughter was the typical rebellious teenager, but there was just a little too much rebellion. She was just so hateful I kept hoping she would wind up a victim.
And the end really pissed me off. In the last chapter, after the resolution, a child disappears. This is to set up the plot for the next book from the author. I mean really!!! One book at a time, please.
