She may be a bestselling author, but ex-librarian Jacqueline Kirby’s views on the publishing biz aren’t fit to print. In fact, she’s thinking of trading celebrity for serenity and a house far away from fiendish editors and demented fans, when her agent whispers the only words that could ever make her stay: Naked in the Ice. Seven years ago, this blockbuster skyrocketed Kathleen Darcy to instant fame. Now the author’s heirs are looking for a writer to pen the sequel. It’s an opportunity no novelist in her right mind would pass up, and there’s no doubting Jacqueline’s sanity…until she starts digging through the missing woman’s papers—and her past. Until she gets mixed up with Kathleen’s enigmatic lover. Until a series of nasty accidents convince her much too late that someone wants to bring Jacqueline’s story—and her life—to a premature end.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A charmer—funny, suspenseful…provocative mystery.” Phyllis A. Whitney
“An expertly made fun read.” Washington Post Book World
“Kirby, with her outrageous clothes and equally outrageous mouth, is a great companion to spend a couple of days with…Peters knows how to knit a good yarn.” Chicago Sun-Times
“Such marvelous fun…you’ll want to read it at a gulp—but don’t…Peters isn't merely magnificent, she’s also sneaky.” Charlotte Macleod
“[Kirby] risks mortal danger to unmask the culprit with panache and mastery remarkably similar to Peters’ own." Publishers Weekly
