Hmm, not sure what to think about this one. Sometimes I am in the mood for a real woman-in-jeopardy-menacing-killer suspense novel. Well, this isn't that. It is ostensibly a suspense novel but it read a bit lighter than, say, a Karen Rose. But that was o.k. actually. I read it in one sitting, almost and it was quick and enjoyable and Susan Andersen writes with a snappy wit.

This is my first Susan Andersen (but not the last) and only the second book set in the professional ice skating world I'd e

This is a great romantic suspense book. I really loved the main characters, Sasha Miller and undercover Agent Mick Vinicor are a combustible couple.

On Thin Ice by Susan Andersen
Sasha Miller was the Olympic medal skater. Her partner, Lonnie Morrison was just released from jail after 5 years for drugs. The cops were not able to charge her at all.
She had to leave the couples section and go back to singles and was on tour on the west coast with the winter ice folly shows.
At the same time the federal agency knows she did play a part and we keep an eye on her-the new manager is an agent.
She has a lot of secrets and finally confides in another s

I was initially going to give this 3 stars. The writing is pretty good, the characters are likeable, and there are mystery/suspense elements to keep the story moving along, and I have liked other works by this author.

However, I went with 2 stars. I got halfway through and just couldn't finish it. For some reason I never engaged with the characters; I just never cared enough about them to want to go all they way through to the end.

This was a light suspense story that kept my interest throughout. Sometimes Mick was a little too cave man aloha male and Sasha a little too perfect but it worked in the end. It wasn't tough to figure out whodunit but it didn't spoil my level of enjoyment. The story moved at a good pace with good dialogue and the right level of character development. Overall, it's a good story but not at the level of suspense that keeps me on the edge of my seat and speeds up my pulse rate.

This is a novel about figure skating. The author misspelled the word axel. (Tip: it's named after the first dude to compete the skill.) Some things are just unacceptable.

As a romance, I found On Thin Ice dull. As a murder mystery, I found it unconvincing. Major thumbs down.

I'd never heard of this author and actually found the book while searching for something else on the library catalogue. But it was a nice, light story and I felt it got better the farther into it I got. I'd read other novels by this author.

It took me a while to get back to this book and finish it. I actually really enjoyed it, good reminder that strength comes in so many different forms. Thatʻs what I took away from this book, and while I was and still am surprised by that, it was a welcome reminder.

I made it to page 122. I really tried to finish this book, I really did. I gave it one star based off of what I've already read.
With that being said, I am still going to try to read another book by this author. I know not all books are perfect. I hope I can find one that makes up for this.

I've liked other Susan Andersen books. This was not my favorite, but good. I liked the friendship between Sasha and Connie, and that Connie stood up for herself with Lon. Mick was redeemed from being too much of a jerk alpha-dude because he called his mother! lol

Even when this book was written I couldn't say I was a fan of the Neanderthal male type. Mick was a dick and Sasha deserved better.

Not a fan of men who are so bossy and aggressive, if if he was the good guy.

I liked this book, but it was predictable. By the 4th chapter you knew who was going to do what. I would recommend it for an easy read though.

This one just didn't live up to Andersen's usual style and content for me

I grew up in a household with two brothers, a daddy, and my grandfather. Too many men, in other words. They diluted M'ma's influence by diverting my attention to things like the danger of answering nature's call in the dead of the night. I've got a hint for those of you raised in a less spit-and-scratch world: check before you sit, because chances are that seat is gonna be up. And they don't even ...more
