Thin Ice - Irene Hannon

In the past 6 months, Christy Reed has lost her entire family.  First, her parents were killed in a tragic car accident.  Then, her sister is killed in a house fire.  Or is she?  3 months later, Christy receives a terrifying yet, in some ways, hopeful, note...insinuating that not only has her sister not died in the fire, but that she is still alive!  She is also instructed not to go to the authorities.  With the fear of what could happen to her sister (if she truly is still alive) hanging over her, Christy decides to call the FBI instead, from a pay phone.

Being as this is, apparently, a mystery suspense, you can pretty well guess what happens from here out: who the FBI investigator is (handsome, but with baggage), how they decide to approach the case (as a dating couple, basically), and what follows...only I don't want to give out any spoilers.  

I did finish this book in one sitting...which means that it at least mostly held my attention.  I was curious who exactly Christy's mystery stalker would turn out to be, but really, I didn't think it was very suspenseful at all, since I was pretty sure main characters weren't actually going to be killed or anything.  Also, the last chapter really didn't even need to be in there...I was bored after the mystery was solved.  

I was given this book by Revell Reads (Baker Publishing) in exchange for an honest review.  As you can see, this is honest...I didn't really like the book, and don't really recommend it.
