A famous crime novelist is kidnapped, and tortured by a stalker. She manages to escape after 3 days but suffered a severe brain injury and is left with only a few flashback memories of her captivity, no memory of what he looks like and only what she thinks is his name. She decides the only way to survive is to disappear until he is found. Luckily she writes under a pseudonym and very few people know her real name so she changes her appearance and using her real name of Beth Rivers she chooses wh ...more

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Beth Rivers is a successful thriller author using the pseudonym of Elizabeth Fairchild. She has many fans but one fanatic took things way too far. Kidnapped and held in a van for 3 days, she manages to escape as the van was going down the road.

After being kidnapped and held captive for three days before escaping, Beth Rivers seeks a place to get as far away from her assailant as possible. Benedict Alaska seems like the perfect place. However, Beth hadn't expected to find out about a murder (or was it suicide?) upon arrival. Using the skills she'd acquired helping her grandfather, she works with local authorities to help solve the mystery, taking the reader right along with her. This was entertaining and fun. I cannot wait for the next ...more

6/27/19 Review of Thin Ice by Paige Shelton

4.5 stars

Likely because I’ve been a long-time fan of Shelton’s, I was lucky enough to score an ARC of this thriller/mystery which will not be released to the public until December, 2019. I received my copy at about 4:00 PM on June 26, 2019, read it in large chunks, and finished it at about 10:15 AM the next day. I intended to give it five stars, but it does have a few Chekovian issues, which would likely have been non-issues if the book had declared it

Being greeted into Benedict, Alaska by Gladys the moose was only the beginning to a fantastic new series! I’m thrilled I was able to read this one early, but boy is it hard to think about waiting for the second one...

Paige Shelton has bypassed my expectations on this new mystery series. I love her cozy mysteries, particularly the Scottish Bookshop Mystery Series, but her execution into the realm outside of cozy, is flawless. Her characters, locations, and quotable dialogue are on point. I only w

I’m so very happy to have received an advanced readers edition of this new series. Paige Shelton takes us into the wilds of Alaska to a remote town with a mystery that reads like a suspense novel at times. I literally could not put it down. About six paragraphs in I was hooked to the plot that was unfolding and intrigued about Beth and why she needed to hide in such a remote corner away from everyone with only one bag and a typewriter in hand...and a wicked scar on her head. The characters in th ...more
Another wonderful read from mystery writer, Paige Shelton. In this departure from her previous "cozies," Ms. Shelton does what she always does so well. She creates intriguing characters, all with a lot under the surface, and tells a compelling story embedded in place. In this case, the story takes place near Glacier Bay National Park in a well-crafted Alaskan village and surrounding wild lands. The strong female protagonist is someone you want to know...and get to know as the book progresses. As ...more

Paige Shelton has created an interesting mystery out of the beauty of Alaska. Beth has fled to a tiny Alaskan town after suffering a tramatic attack. While on her flight there, she discovers there has been a murder in this small town of less than 500 residents. Being a writer of mysteries, ala Jessica Fletcher, and having worked in her grandfather's sheriff's office, gives Beth certain skills and insight.

Weaving in clues from the current mystery and the assault, Shelton creates a light, but sus

I love the author's Scottish Bookshop mysteries so when I heard she was starting a new series I had to give it a try. I love the setting of a small town in Alaska and also all the quirky local characters. There were plenty of twists and red herrings to keep me guessing the answer to this mystery plus we get a backstory that is being slowly told in bits and pieces. The local mystery wraps up nicely but wow on setting up book two with that ending! I definitely will be checking out the next book! I ...more
