I believe that every experience, every wrong decision, teaches us something. That’s why we shouldn’t be afraid to make mistakes.”
Rizzoli and Isles is one of my favorite book series’. I got into it mostly because my mom would not let up about how much I needed to read it. At first I didn’t take her too seriously because a lot of the time we have vastly different tastes in books but once i picked up the first one, I couldn’t stop. Ice Cold by Tess Gerritsen, or The Killing Place depending on which version you have, is the eighth book in the series.
In this installment, Maura is away on a conference trip when she turns up missing, trapped in a mysterious valley called Kingdom Come where all of it’s inhabitants have disappeared with no way to contact anyone for help. When Jane Rizzoli gets word of her disappearance it is up to her, along with the help of Gabriel Dean, Daniel Brophy, and Anthony Sansone.
Tess Gerritsen continues to amaze me with every book she publishes. I love her characters, the relationships they share, and the plots she creates. Ice Cold started in a way that left me confused and longing for more information, slowly revealing the truth to me bit by bit, page by page, ultimately bowling my mind with the way in which each event, person, and place tie in together. Ice Cold is impeccably planned out and structured, leaving no loose ends untied.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series! I definitely give it a full five stars.
