Beth and Donovan are expecting their first child. Life couldn’t get any better…until a stalker makes his presence known. This person sends disturbing messages and unsettling items, but it isn’t long before his menacing goes too far.

Hoping for a peaceful Christmas, Donovan takes Beth to Michigan. Days into their trip, a winter storm named Nemesis moves in with the goal of burying the state. Snowdrifts surround their house, and the temperature drops below freezing.

Except, the storm isn’t the only nemesis they must face. Everyone’s lives are at stake—especially that of their unborn child. Will they survive, or will they become a frozen crime?

PRAISE:

“While this installment isn’t my favorite of the series, it might be in second place. I want to say so much but am afraid I’ll go on a rant and spoil it for others. I will say that while Beth has always been a strong-lead female character, she has evolved throughout this series to show the kind of strength female characters rarely get to exhibit in these kinds of stories, and she’s not the only woman kicking butt and taking names.” Toi Thomas, Lit Carnival Reviewer

“Chrys Fey’s FROZEN CRIMES is a nail-biting, high energy, emotional tale that will send chills through one’s bones[…]Loved the feisty ladies, Beth’s strength, and Donovan’s determination! For those who have no idea what it is like to be snowed in…wonder no more! Another fabulous romantic suspense tale from Chrys Fey! ” – Tome Tender

“I have read each and every one of Chrys Fey’s Disaster Crimes novels and I have to say that this was an AWESOME conclusion to an amazing series. Beth and Donovan are extremely likeable characters and the chemistry between them will melt your heart… although that’s the only thing melting in FROZEN CRIMES.[…]The entire series gets 5 stars (or wine glasses) from me!” – The Novel Lady

“Chrys Fey’s writing flows smoothly, leading me deeper into the story, anticipating something bad coming, just not sure what it is going to be. She does add the good with the bad. She creates suspense and adds some heat to spice things up.” Sherry Fundin, reviewer at Fundinmental.com

QUESTION:

In Seismic Crimes and Frozen Crimes, Beth and Donovan had a Thanksgiving dinner. Do they still celebrate Thanksgiving?

After their Thanksgiving dinner in Frozen Crimes, they learned more about Thanksgiving, such as it’s true history and how it hurts Indigenous Peoples to see celebrations on this day (i.e. it’s their day of mourning). That was the last time they had a big feast on this day. Now, they acknowledge Truthsgiving, donate to Indigenous-run organizations, support Florida tribes (like the Seminoles), and get takeout.
