However, accidents begin to occur with a frequency that makes local Dr. Seth Hazlitt feel they are deliberate. Soon afterward Alexei is murdered and another skater Jeremy is hammered into a coma. Sheriff Mort Metzger and novelist Jessica Fletcher investigate Skating on Thin Ice.
After the mostly recent road tour (see A Slaying in Savannah, Madison Avenue Shoot, Queen Jewels and Nashville Noir), Jessica returns home to Cabot Cove where she investigates the Alexei homicide and related felonies. Her being back in Maine is a two edged sword as that locale has been the prime place for the myriad of books and the TV series, but also brings a deja vu feel to the plot. Still this is an engaging whodunit in which readers will never look at a Zamboni in the same way.
The dialog, settings, characters - they all seem recycled from previous novels.
With that being said, this book isn't "bad", but it's not a book you have to really focus on while reading - I guess in a word: Hollow
I'm not entirely writing this series off, it's a good summer read if you're stretched out on a beach, but it's not a novel you can sink your teeth into and lose yourself in either.
