Woooowww! This book was so intense. It had EVERYTHING! Romance, sexy times, suspense. MURDER! What a thrilling book to read. Another hit from the amazing Carrie Aarons!

Before I divulge how much I love me some Nathan Rush, and I do love him oh so much, let's talk about Camille. Nothing compares to the pain and guilt she is feeling due to what has happened to her family. I'll be super honest, at first I really didn't like her. I was super put off by her attitude towards everyone, and I know it was

I got the ARC of this book from the lovely author herself in exchange for an honest review :) and to be honest, I have some mixed feelings about it... let me try to explain :) I gave this book 3,75 stars, although I had some real trouble when it came to give it a rating... don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Carrie's writing style, and it was still really good in this book as it was in her previous ones... my general problems were about this particular story... or to be more exact, the heroine ...more

I enjoyed this book but I expected more. Maybe it was the lack of attention to details that got me. Scratch that, it was exactly the lack of attention to details. The storyline, the characters, the romance all were ok, they just needed more work and deffinitly more research into police investigations.
I liked Nate and his small town charm and sincerity. His words about people in small towns being a community and how they care about one another, as opposed to big cities, rang true. Maybe not all

On Thin Ice is a standalone novel. I have read five other novels by Carrie and so far On Thin Ice has been my favorite! I fell in love with the cover the moment I saw it and knew it was going to be a different kind of story. And I was right...I was sucked in from the from beginning until the very end. This is a story about an ice princess in her castle and a man that wanted to melt her heart...

I'm not going to lie, the cover is what drew me in for this book. This was my first Carrie Aarons book and it didn't disappoint. I was sucked in from page one. I was curious where this book where going to go once I read the blurb. This is a standalone, so you if you're like, you don't need to read the rest in the series prior to starting this one.
Camille and Nathan has to be some of new favorite characters. Their attraction was one that would be considered forbidden. What started o

First, I'm happy that I got this ARC and couldn't put it down. What a beautiful story.

Camille lost both her parents to a horrendous murder and didn't have any other family members. Enter groundskeeper, swoony, handsome Nathan Rush.

Nathan took his time with Camille being her friend and helping her heal and trying to make her "live" again. Camille experienced with Nathan things she's never experienced before. He opened up her eyes to different things and made her see the world thru different eyes

The first thing that attracted me to this book was that cover. It is amazingly beautiful and had me eager to start. Then I read the blurb and I was hooked. Carrie Aaron is an author I can count on for a great story that will keep me guessing. Her writing is always clean and exciting, her plots unique and her characters well developed.

On Thin Ice was full of suspense with a stellar romance to boot. Nate and Camille have wonderfully chemistry It is clear when you start that this will be different

On Thin Ice by Carrie Aarons is a beautifully written romance with a thriller edge to it and a twist I didn't see coming. Carrie has stepped out into a different subgenre here and it's perfection. Nathan & Camille's story is one of trust, respect and protection while falling for each other in the picturesque area of upstate New York. Following their story was a complete pleasure and I couldn't put this story down. Camille & Nathan's connection is undeniable and even as they fight it you know it' ...more

On Thin Ice is a romantic suspense novel that chronicles Camille's life as she deals with the murder of her family and a threat against her own life. With this book, Carrie Aarons has crafted a story of love and heat laced with the danger and suspense.

The two main characters of the story, Nate and Camille, have a chemistry that will draw readers into the story. The way he cares for her, the way she opens up under his tenure as the house manag

I am a fan of Carrie Aaron's books. I think I have read almost all of them. I am a fan of the baseball series. When I saw she had a new book out, I was dying to read it. This is unlike her other books. A little darker and more mysterious.

Camille is a rich and sheltered young socialite who is escaping her life in upstate New York. Her parents were killed in a house fire and she is on someone's radar as their next victim. Without any family or friends to turn to, she hides n a place only f

On Thin Ice is a romantic suspense packed with emotion but it still has its light hearted fun moments. Between all that, there was a good balance showing all the pain and healing Camille was working through. She's not only lost her parents but it was in a murder and the killer is now after her. She's fled to a secret property run while this killer is still on the loose. Nathan is the groundskeeper of her secret hideaway and is in instant helpful mode. He is just a down right man's man and is abs ...more

'On Thin Ice' is a beautifully written book overflowing with emotions and intense suspense. This is one book from Carrie that you will not be able to put down.

I fell in love with the synopsis and the cover for this book and Carrie did not disappoint one bit.

The characters were very well developed and the story was just gripping which flowed perfectly.

I sat down to try to type out my review and seriously, my mind is just still so BLOWN by it.

This book was incredible! I loved the characters, the setting, the mystery, the suspense of it all. It was really amazing. The slow build, the anticipation, the unknowing of it all really just drew me in. It was such a refreshing book.

I won't go into details because honestly, this book is one you should read. It was spell binding from page one.

Beautifully written, overflowing with sensuality, emotion and gripping suspense. Camille and Nathan find love in the midst of tragedy and danger. This story had me crying, panicking, swooning and laughing. It's a little bit different than anything I've read from this author so far and I loved it! There were so many clever hints and twists. This story had all the feels, a swoon worthy book boyfriend, an inspiring heroine and the perfect HEA! ...more

Another solid read from Carrie Aarons. I liked the suspense part of the storyline, since it kept you guessing. The romance between Nate and Camille was a little slow going and then jumped to warp speed, but the last part of the book made up for me questioning if a relationship was really what Camille needed given everything she had been through.

That’s that, then…

I completely LOVED the ending of this book. I think Camille ended up surprising me at the end, I seriously saw her for the damsel in distress. A woman unable to handle her own. I was happy to be wrong. I also loved to see Carrie’s take on a romantic suspense/mystery… which are my absolute favorite books!!

We have Camille Valon whose life has taken place in the spotlight. I believe the book said she had a large silver spoon in her mouth and never really took it out. You can tell

On Thin Ice by Carrie Aarons is the story of Camille Valon and Nathan Rush.
Camille has lived a sheltered life as a international Ice skater with just her and her parents. But then her parents were murdered and she had no one. Camille went to what she knew to be a safe haven for her family the Hollis Home. There she ends up meeting Nathan who is the grounds keeper for the place. Normally the family doesn't come to the house but now the daughter is here. Feelings are engaged between the two, but

i liked it more than i was expecting to, but i did hope that it would have been more thriller based instead of merely a romance surrounded by the mystery deaths. after reading the author's note at the end, i can't but wonder whether she lost track of what she was writing, because the book certainly wasn't about the healing properties of small communities: camille barely went to the town twice, and it was always with nate, as a date. the story itself is good, camille is not unlikeable (as i was a ...more

Author of romance novels such as Fool Me Twice and Love at First Fight, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.

When she isn't writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner.
