Book Five

Who would expect a killer to do in his/her victim while riding a chairlift at a peaceful alpine ski resort in full view of a throng of skiers gathered to watch the Christmas torchlight parade? Certainly not stress-reduction therapist, Carrie Carlin, who has come to her biofeedback convention in the hope of meeting this year's honoree, pain management guru, Adonis-like Dr. Hubert Freundlich. Of course, Carrie hadn't expected to find Dr. Freundlich's wedding-banded hand creeping up her thigh in the outdoor hot tub either. Nor had she anticipated hearing hints of wrongdoing drunkenly whispered in her ear by his brilliant young associate.

Then the associate is murdered, the police discover that her scarf is the probable murder weapon, her roommate develops amnesia about a possible date rape, a close colleague and friend is attacked, there's a suspicious accident on those slippery slopes, and her significant other starts talking wedded bliss. Carrie's stress level shoots into the stratosphere as she finds herself dodging not only Cupid's darts, but bullets and a ski-masked killer with a heart as cold as Vermont black ice.

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Praise for this book

"Wow! Don't miss this stand-out-from-the-crowd cliffhanger with its slightly frazzled, commitment-phobic, in-your-face heroine who'll tickle your funnybone as she steals your heart. I loved every fun-filled minute of Carrie's wild slide down those slippery slopes." - Janet Evanovich

"I have loved all of Nancy Tesler's books and this one is the best. Her writing is witty and clever and the story is a nail biter. The atmosphere is so real, I could feel the swing of the chair lift, and those slippery slopes sent a murderous chill through me." - Lee Harris
