The Girl in the Ice by Robert Bryndza (Book Beginnings & Friday 56)

I'm still working on The Girl in the Ice and still loving it! It's entirely possible that I'll be finished with this by the time I get home from work. Once I was able to focus a bit it really started flying for me. I had forgotten how much I love a good police procedural. I've been stuck in the cozy/romcom mode for far too long! 

Erika Foster is a wonderfully complex and gloriously flawed main character. She's sometimes vulgar, often impulsive, and emotionally scarred. I kind of feel like I should be buying her shots in a bar just so we can have a good gab and get it all out. 

As always, Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice & Book Beginnings is at Rose City Reader. This week my "56" comes from the 56% mark of the ebook I was gifted, and the Book Beginnings is actually from the second paragraph since I used the first on Tuesday.

  1. Ah I downloaded this for my kobo ages ago because the synopsis (and the price) drew my attention! This reminded me to charge my kobo and get through some of the books on there. I hope you continue to enjoy it!!

    1. I got distracted by life yesterday so I've still got a couple of chapters left but I may have just added a new author to my "favorites" list!

  6. I love this genre and that cover and title would be hard to resist. Never read this author before either. So a double bonus for me!

    1. He also writes romcoms (which I have but haven't read yet). The ability to do both absolutely astounds me!
