Their Frozen Graves by Ruhi Choudhary

Two women are dead. They both look like you.

The giant stretch of frozen river was melting and the light made the lake glitter like crystals. The women lay side by side on the shore, eyes open and glassy. Their long, dark hair was like tangled rope, their faces a reflection of each other…

When two bodies are found dumped in a vast lake in Lakemore, Washington, Detective Mackenzie Price is first on the scene. She identifies one of the victims as Katy Becker, a local known for her work helping the community. The other victim looks strikingly similar.

Still grappling with a shocking revelation from her past, Mack is only too happy to throw herself into the case. But when she goes to break the news to Katy’s husband, the investigation takes an unexpected turn: Katy is very much alive, and has never met the women who resemble her so closely.

Now the race is on to find the killer before Katy becomes the next victim. But when Mack unearths a disturbing connection to a sixteen-year-old suicide, she realizes they could be hunting someone whose crimes span decades—and there are more lives than just Katy’s at stake.

Addictive, pulse-pounding and packed full of jaw-dropping twists, fans of Lisa Regan, Angela Marsons and Karin Slaughter will love the Their Frozen Graves.

My thoughts

This is the first book I have read by this author. It is the second book in the series but it was fine jumping in with this one. I picked up on the threads of the main character’s life quite easily.

I liked the characters. Detective Mackenzie “Mack” Price’s life is thrown a curveball when her assumed long-dead father turns up on her doorstep. There are reasons why this is extremely unsettling and Mack has to play things carefully throughout the book as she tries to figure out why and how he has reappeared in her life.

Alongside this story is the mystery of the bodies that were found in the frozen lake. They are strikingly similar in appearance, not just to each other but to a well-known local woman. Mack and her team have to figure out what is happening and who might be at risk next.

I love trying to figure things out and seeing if I guessed right, but this story line had me guessing until the end. The writing style has a nice flow to it and I’ll look forward to the next book in the series.
