"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"
"coolly calculated murder with...friends who pull together in the face of tragedy, illness, or...a steaming hot cup of tea."
