Description:

 

The young woman’s mouth is slightly parted, as if waiting to speak. Her body is frozen in ice and her blue eyes stare at the sky, perhaps wanting to look at the stars one last time…

When the body of a woman is found in the frozen Neponset River, just where it meets the sea, Jessie Novak and her partner Detective Sam Dallas rush to the scene. When Jessie sees a flash of a familiar silk scarf, she’s shocked to realize the girl in the ice is Sheila Logan, who she worked closely with for years at Boston City Hospital. Jessie desperately wants to find out how this young and talented nurse ended up an innocent victim.



But who would want to kill her? As she digs into Sheila’s past, Jessie realizes she was having an affair with a colleague and may even have been pregnant. Was her lover unwilling to be a father to her child? The pain of Sheila’s death threatens to tear open Jessie’s old wounds—Jessie’s own mother walked out on her when she was just a baby and never looked back. She can’t change her own past, but she’s determined to get justice for Sheila.

When Sheila’s neighbor is found dead, also wearing a distinctive scarf, Jessie sees a lethal pattern forming. Next, someone breaks into Jessie’s car and she knows she’s being warned off the case. But with the killer in her sights, will she take the deadliest risk of her life? Can Jessie catch him, before he catches up to her?

This utterly addictive novel will keep you up all night! Fans of Lisa Regan, Rachel Abbott and Tess Gerritsen will be totally hooked until the last heart-thumping page.


Author Bio: 

 

Roberta Gately, lives in Boston where she works as a nurse at the Boston Medical Center. It was in the ER where she developed an interest in the investigations behind the crimes and the victims she encountered. Working in a busy ER is much like being a detective—the search for answers is a methodical process, not unlike the work required to solve a murder! 

 

Her crime series with Bookouture stars the brave and brilliant ER nurse Jessie Novak who teams up with her detective friend to solve tricky Boston murder cases. Expect addictive mysteries, breathtaking suspense and a gutsy heroine you’ll never forget. When she’s not writing or working at the hospital, Roberta enjoys reading, working out and spending time with friends and family.

 

She has also worked in humanitarian aid, providing medical care in some of the world’s bleakest spots ranging from Africa to Afghanistan. Her two previous novels, Lipstick in Afghanistan and The Bracelet were based upon her experiences of nursing abroad. Her memoir—Footprints in the Dust tells the true stories of some of the extraordinary people she met.

Review

Heidi Lynn’s Book Reviews


First, I want to thank Roberta Gately, Bookouture and NetGalley for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review. 


Roberta Gately is back with her second installment of her Jessie Novak series entitled The Frozen Girl! Oh how I loved how fast paced this book was. The Frozen Girl combined my two loves of all things medical and criminal into one book. 


This book is dedicated to Roberta’s twin sister, Susan Richard, who has nurtured her, listened to her, and taken care of her since before she was born. She can’t imagine her life without her by her side. 


Roberta hooks us into her prologue with such an unbelievable sickening scene that would scare the living daylights out of me!! 


Oh I am craving pizza like crazy now and must go get some! Roberta mentions pizza a lot in this book. 


I love how the motto Boston Strong is used in this book. 


Having worked in the medical field as a Medical Assistant I was familiar with terms Roberta used like EMR. Infact, I used the EPIC system that was mentioned in the story. 


The story that pulled hard on my heartstrings in so many directions was Jessie and her Mom. What an emotional story that you just couldn’t help feel empathy for both of them.
