Reviews of Ice on the Grapevine by R.E. Donald

Robert Miller reviewed on Aug. 23, 2012

This is a well-written, well-developed traditional mystery. The characters are very down to earth and engaging and this is especially true for the main character who is very patient and has lots of flaws. I look forward to learning more about Hunter Rayne as I read the other novels in the series.

I enjoyed the return of the hero sleuth in a different mystery to solve but with the same integrity and once again I was kept guessing. The author has chosen characters that really seem true to life old and new. I would have liked to see his romantic side explored just a little more but otherwise equally as good as the last book.

Another enjoyable mystery by R.E. Donald which explores themes of fragile relationships contrasted by the violent world of drugs and murder. The story moved me forward at a good pace and kept me wanting more! I found the glimpse into the world of cross border police jurisdictions and the trucking industry fascinating.
