What a good story! This was my first time reading a book by this author, but it won't be my last :) Even though it didn't grab my attention at first, the story does pick up and I found myself eager to know how everything gets solved. Lots of good clean action, Jesse was a good hero even though he was conflicted throughout most of the book, and Casey survives many close calls in this one. Part of her was terrified and part of her got tired of running and longs to fight back. The ice sculpting was ...more

This had a bit of a slow beginning, but once it started going I really got into it! So glad I stuck it out. The ending was definitely worth it!

I'm not surprised, though. Elizabeth Goddard has a gift for building together intricate mysteries full of unexpected twists. Freezing Point did not disappoint in that arena!

Jesse was undercover again, it was the first time since he had blown his last cover and he was tense. And now this reporter woman keeps showing up wanting to do a story on ice sculptors, which is his cover. Is she really looking for a story about that, or is she after a deeper story? He has to stay on his toes to make sure he doesn't blow this job. The biggest problem seems to be that this reporter can seemingly find trouble anywhere, from wandering around the ice plant, onto the loading docks, ...more

Freezing Point was another good Love Inspired Suspense novel. While predictable, I still enjoyed the story and liked the characters. I loved the whole undercover aspect - I always enjoy books with undercover agents! The romance seemed to move a little too quickly, but the book is only 214 pages, so that isn't surprising. Overall, I liked Freezing Point and look forward to reading more of Elizabeth Goddard's books. :)

I won a signed copy in a goodreads giveaway! This was a short read, but it was really good! My only complaint would be a slight lack of character development. Even so,it was a wonderful, suspenseful book! Thank you to the author for this copy!

"Freezing Point" by Elizabeth Goddard was a change of pace for me, since I don't read many cozy mysteries. That said, I'm not very familiar with the conventions of the genre, so I'll just be up-front about my main problems with this story. First, the back story overwhelmed me. I Googled to see if perhaps this book is a follow-up of another using these same characters. If so, I did not find it, but I read with the feeling that I was stepping into the middle of a series. Second, very little was le ...more

When uncover homeland security agent goes undercover as an ice sculptor things get heated when a journalist starts poking around for a story.
Freezing Point had me reaching for a blanket when Jesse Mitchell is carving his ice sculpture and again when Casey Wilkes finds herself in some terrifying situations.
This is a well-written book with many twists, lots of action and the romance is good too. No matter how uninvolved Jesse wishes to be with Casey, something always occurs to put him in her pres

I was thankful when I won this book through the Goodreads giveaways. I entered because it sounded really interesting.

It was not a bad story but it really stretched the believability scale. Our hero Jesse had been involved in several failed cases. No wonder. He is an undercover cop who does not like to lie to people. What? Get a new job. That is the nature of the profession.

There was a lot of action but when they started to bring God into the story it seemed forced. Then things got a bit better a

I have been reading these "love inspired suspense" novels for a long time, and this is either the worst or the second worst. For the second novel in a row, the editing is bad. The last paragraph of page 88 has a wrong tense ("ask" instead of "asked") In the last paragraph of page 117, there is a disagreement of tenses. On page 189, a sentence is written in such a way that chain saws and chisels are melting as well as ice. All those are livable. Having the hero, posing as an ice sculptor, actuall ...more

I like how Jesse and Casey meet, and his dog Simon is precious. However, I am once again distrubed by the timeline. Falling in love within a week and then getting engaged the next one seems too fast. However, the ice sculpting angle is fun.
