I've read and enjoyed most of Tess Gerriten's books and especially enjoyed the Rizzoli and Isles series.
Ice Cold begins with Maura running from a love affair that's hurting everyone involved. At a medical conference in Jackson Hole she encounters a man she knew in med school. Figuring her tight control over her life is making her miserable, she takes a chance and accompanies the man, his daughter, and his friends on what is supposed to be an overnight trip to a lodge with easy cross country skiing.
Things go wrong - and then get worse in classic mystery/thriller fashion.
Each new disaster seemed inevitable, and yet a fresh twist, until the midpoint of the story. Minor spoiler alert - I had a problem with Maura in the initial stage with Rat when Gerritsen emphasized her weakness after being held in ropes for several days only to have her take off through deep snow, following Rat toward the fire. Not believable. Immediately after this, in the early stages of the law enforcement investigation into Maura’s confrontation with the crooked deputy, so much didn't add up, I couldn't believe no one was questioning it.
Eventually Jane does question the 'facts' around Maura's encounter with the deputy and it's once again a sprint to determine what's going on with The Prophet and what really happened to the compound's residents. All in all another great story from a master story teller
