Fun read, written by my friend Tom Kelly. I am sucker for plots based in the Pacific Northwest and high school sports/basketball related stories, and this book did not disappoint. Also interesting to see connections in the story woven throughout to my understanding of many of Tom's life experiences. Great book.

Ernie Creekmore was well known for his nineteen years as the head basketball coach for the local high school in the north Washington state community of North Fork, near scenic Lake Wilhelmina, especially the year his team went to the state championship with one of the best athletes the area knew, Linn “Cheese” Oliver. However, many remember that “Cheese” missed the final shot that would have won the game and faded during his years at the University of Washington, playing for the Huskies. Now, ...more

Very good start to a new series. I didn't really have any choice about reading this book. Mystery? Check. Sports? Check. Local author? Check. Local setting? Check. And the funniest thing was that after I started reading it, I noticed posters advertising the book on the Bainbridge Island ferry. It gave me a mental giggle to know that I was sitting next to or in front of a poster for the book I was reading. Okay, I'm easily amused.

The details of the story rang true, whether it was sports, real est

This was a Goodreads win. I enjoy mysteries and wasn't sure how'd I do seeing as I'm not a sports fan. I grew very fond of Ernie Creekmore who retired from coaching and went into Real Estate. He had such a genuine fondness for his players that they remained important to him even after retirement. I struggled some with the fluctuation in time. As I progressed I understood the author's purpose. I'm a contented reader and wonder if there will be a sequel. Ernie Creekmore could be Harlan Coben's ...more

Reading Cold Crossover was thrilling not only for the story, but also to spot so many familiar places. Tom is incredibly skilled at weaving in the setting and local history into his novel. He captures the essence and energy of the PNW, as well as its inhabitants, perfectly.

This is a book to curl up with. Best read on a rainy day, preferably while sitting in a cabin, deep in an emerald forest. I'm looking forward to the next books in the Ernie Creekmore series!

Started off well

Rural, small town readers can relate as sports in the high school was the main excitement in most communities before t.v., computer and video games. The tying in of the early settlements was also interesting, it started losing me with booster club murders. In most booster clubs i have known they were predominantly females and parents

A little too tangled (confusing and overdone threads) for me to rate higher. Basically a good plot and well written, just a little overdone on several fronts.
