August 10, 2019

Advance Reviews: 

"This holiday punch of a story is laced with toxic exes, jealous siblings, dangerous accountants, and even a Christmas ghost bent on revenge. Where the Ice Falls is a haunting tale that probes the mysteries of life and death even while it entertains." 

"Intense and intriguing,  
Where the Ice Falls is a vividly spun tale 
of ghosts, grief, and greed"
