I bought this book for our family's recent trip to Washington State. I didn't have time to read it during our trip, and afterward I had a hard time getting into it.

When I finally had the time to read it, the book really whizzed by. It was a really interesting read with a couple of surprising twists. Having read a lot of books, I'm not easily surprised, or rather, not easily majorly surprised, but this book did just that.

The only thing I'd wish the author would do is go into more depth into the m

I picked this up at a second-hand bookstore because the jacket specifically mentions it's a good "beach read" and I was looking for a pool read costing me $1. It was a really quick and easy read. Unfortunately, it was also unsatisfying. While it managed to stand alone separate from the rest of the series, it didn't suck me in nearly enough to suspend my disbelief. I found myself constantly saying "What does that have to do with anything? No one acts that way." I was hoping it would all come toge ...more

Another great entry in the Regan Reilly series. Regan is on vacation with her folks (Nora and Luke) and her friend Kit, in Aspen. There's a string of art thefts, including a theft from the home of the Reillys' friends the Woods. Everyone believes that the Woods' caretaker, Eben, is the thief, but Regan isn't so sure...

'Iced' is a great little mystery, although the readers find out who the real thieves are almost immediately, the thrill lies in whether Regan is going to track them down, and in th

I forgot all about this series. I haven't read one of the Regan Reilly mysteries in years. Iced was located in Aspen just around the Christmas Holiday.

Some paintings are stolen and one of the help is suspected of orchestrating the theft. He is missing and everyone assumes he left town.

Regan doesn't believe that the person who everyone suspects actually heisted the paintings because of certain things that she notices, such as; freezing food, not taking all his belongings, just little things lik

This was an interesting mystery set in Aspen. Regan and her parents were visiting friends and skiing but also attending the opening of a new restaurant by another friend. The theft of some very valuable art in the area and the unexplained disappearance of two persons resulting in suspicion that they were involved in the thefts adds to the questions and confusion as Regan investigates. Older residents of the area and historical figures also play a part in the story. There were some unique charact ...more

I do not think I have ever read one of Carol Higgins Clark's books before. If I did, it was long ago. I used to be a fan of Mary Higgins Clark, her mother, until I overdosed on her books and moved onto other authors.

Yet, when a challenge required a one-word title, I decided to give Carol Higgins Clark a try. Pleasant surprise. She tells a really good tale. I will read more of her books, I am sure.

ok for YA. Fun, fast.
This is what I think about Carol Higgins Clark: Her plots are great. Her characters are quirky or smart alecks or self-obsessed, but not well rounded. There is plenty of action, but no drama, nothing tense, emotional, and nobody that I really care about. Regan Reilly (the private investigator star of this series) is arrogant and annoying. Carol does have some writing potential, but she is NOT her mother. If you want to read a mystery that will have lots of characters that yo

This is book #3 in this series and while I enjoyed the first two, this one just left me cold. This is a cozy mystery so I knew not to expect hard-hitting crime, but still, there should be something that felt dangerous or thrilling. There just wasn't. This book was awkward and felt amateurish at times. There were very cheesy jokes, cheesy dialogue and even a cheesy plot. As a reader, you are aware the whole time that this is a book; none of it felt remotely real.

Iced suffers from some of the same things the previous two books did, including little character development, the sometimes useless/unnecessary multiple point of views and of course being set while Regan is on 'vacation'. I will say that Regan did more investigating in this book in the previous two - though still not enough for me to accept her as a good P.I. We're told she's experienced but she still comes off as being more amateur - she asks questions, but at times didn't pursue what even I co ...more
I enjoy Carol Higgins Clark's writing. Her books are on the light side, and easy enjoyable reads. This is an earlier book by Carol. Regan was married in the other books I have read. She and her friend, Kit, are single in this book, and they are looking for men, when Regan learns of artwork that has been stolen. She doesn't believe the man who is thought to have committed the crime, is guilty. Nice light read.

++ Finished 05/25/2012 (again?). Regan is on a ski holiday in Aspen with her family as well as numerous friends. Another friend has grandiose plans for the grand opening of his restaurant and hotel which involve a lifelong Aspen resident and some classic paintings. Art theft reigns. ++

If you need proof that mysteries can be written without reliance on lots of gratuitous sex or unnecessary profanity, this author provides that proof. Amateur leuth Regan Reilly comes across throughout this series as a genuinely nice person despite her somewhat privileged upbringing. In this book, she must find out who is stealing works of art from homes in Aspen dring the Christmas season. To make matters worse, the main suspect in the thievery seems to be a caretaker she recommended for the job ...more

Carol's books are lighter than her mother's, and I love both, depending on my mood. I also enjoy the sense of humor Carol instills in her stories. I thought this was one of her better stories.

There is something comforting about reading Carol Higgins Clark. Pretty much the same thing every time. Three or four stories that end up being intertwined. Since each part of the story is only 6-10 pages long, the books are generally a fairly swift, incredibly light, highly enjoyable read. This book, of course, is no different.

I couldn't finish this book. The writing style and characters both left me feeling I was reading an amateur attempt at writing a murder mystery.

I always enjoy a story by this author. Her tales are filled with fun and a slight touch of humor, even in her most serious books.
This is another book based on Private Investigator Regan Reilly. She finally decides to take a much-needed vacation, only to once again be caught up in a mystery. Of course, everyone thinks one particular person has stolen a display of priceless paintings … except Regan. And even though the suspect has a criminal background, Regan believes that, in this case, he’s inno

Recommends it for: EVERYonem especially if you like art or skiing
Iced will melt any qualms you may have about mysteries! As I am reading Carol Higgins Clark's Regan Reilly books in order I find they keep getting better. Humor, danger, romance (between characters you would not expect!) and many hidden twists come together in the telling of this tale.

Set in Aspen, Iced tells the story behind a series of high profile art heists, while introducing the reader to a cast full of characters whose motives are not all that they seem.
