Blurb: Something is causing people to freeze to death in Florida during ninety-degree weather. Ancient Indian lore holds the answer to these mysterious medical aberrations. A newly constructed Florida male prison sits on ancient hallowed grounds called Forbidden Hill. Soon after the prison opens, two male inmates freeze to death without exposure to frigid temperatures. John Randall, a widowed prison doctor, meets Lena Windmaker, a single, off-duty sheriff detective at a local library. Their initial plutonic relationship soon kindles into a more amorous one. They hide a personal secret that could bring them together or destroy them. They uncover articles in local, post-Civil war newspapers describing residence succumbing to Frozen Death. John and Lena race to discover a cause before it chooses other victims
Review: Well, I must say it was a very good story. The entire mystery was very interesting and the final crack in the case was surprising to say the least. Botht he main characters were very likeable and the story was able to hold my interest well.
My only draw back was a few editing issues that have been reported to the publisher. I have no doubts they were taken care of, but as 50% of our score does reflect presentation, I had to mention them. Nothing to big, just a few snaffoo's. :)
Aside from that, I have to say the story was enjoyable. Check it out if you like a good mystery with a bit of a twist.
