Who Is Mistral Dawn?

#CheckOut #Ice by Jessica Wren!

Hey Everyone!! :-)

If you follow this blog, you may have noticed that lately I've been trying to highlight some books by some amazing indie authors.  Well, here's another one!!  Ice by Jessica Wren is a really fun read that takes you into the little town of Minterville where something strange is going on. ;-)  Here's the review I wrote for it several months ago:

Something is rotten in the state of Georgia, or at least in the little corner of it called Minterville. A quiet, sleepy town with an innocent secret that makes the residents a little...different...than the residents of most of small-town America, Minterville seems an unlikely place for unexplained disappearances to occur. But that's just what happens: twenty of the women in the town suddenly vanish! It's up to the town sheriff, the mayor, and the rest of the town to find the missing women, and save them if they can. Unfortunately, doing so may just mean having to face the past, and revealing secrets that aren't quite as innocent as the one that makes the town unique. Will they have the courage to face up to past mistakes? Will they get to the women in time? You'll have to read to find out! ;-)

I enjoyed this story very much. At first, I thought it was a supernatural thriller, but after a while it became clear that it's more of a mystery/crime drama with supernatural overtones. The supernatural elements are important to the story of the town, but not central to the drama that unfolds in this tale. In this way, the book is almost as unusual as the townspeople, which makes for an interesting read. Five stars, and I'm very much looking forward to what Ms. Wren comes up with next! :-)

As I said, it's an entertaining story with a fast moving plot.  Want to find out more?  Why don't you check it out on Amazon here:
