Do I have a treat for you today. Remember awhile back I posted the first chapter of Christine Amsden's latest novel FROZEN. The author is now on tour, and I'm excited to host her today.

Frozen (Cassie Scot Book Seven)
Apparently, life doesn’t end when you get married.
When a couple freezes to death on a fifty degree day, Cassie is called in to investigate. The couple ran a daycare out of their home, making preschoolers the key witnesses and even the prime suspects.
Two of those preschoolers are Cassie’s youngest siblings, suggesting conditions at home are worse than she feared. As Cassie struggles to care for her family, she must face the truth about her mother’s slide into depression, which seems to be taking the entire town with it.
Then Cassie, too, is attacked by the supernatural cold. She has to think fast to survive, and her actions cause a rift between her and her husband.
No, life doesn’t end after marriage. All hell can break loose at any time.

My Thoughts


BY Christine Amsden

A young couple found frozen inside a house covered with ice, when the temperature outside is fifty degrees. A large number of suicides have occurred recently. The sighting of a werewolf, or is it something else? Weird things are happening in the area and the sheriff asks Cassie and Ethan for help in solving the mystery. Yes, Cassandra (Cassie) Scot is back in Author Christine Amsden’s latest novel FROZEN, Book Seven in A Paranormal Mystery series. And I’m so happy to see her and her interesting family again.

Now, Cassie and Ethan are married and have an adorable one-year-old daughter named Ana, and they’re one happy family. Or are they? Cassie’s mother has not recovered from her husband’s death and is unable to care for Cassie’s siblings that range in age from seventeen to twins two years old. Cassie feels guilty for not helping them more. And now, with the mystery of the murdered young couple, the sighting of hell hounds and fairies, her life is about to get even more complicated.

Christine Amsden is an expert at creating characters that seem real, with problems like normal people have: family, children, love, and just trying to survive in an often unfriendly world. Add a touch of magic and you have a story where almost anything can happen and does.

FROZEN A PARANORMAL MYSTERY BOOK SEVEN is a delicious addition to the series and the perfect ending. Or is it the end? Will Cassie, Ethan and friends be back? Only the author knows. Recommended for readers who enjoy a great novel.  

Happy Reading

Here are the new covers for some of the books in the series. Aren't they lovely? I think so.
