Their Frozen Graves
Their Frozen Graves is the second novel in a series that features Detective Mackenzie (Mack) Price of the Lakemore, Washington Police Department. Having read the first book Hidden Lake, I was keen to read this one too.
Their Frozen Graves
Two women are dead. They both look like you.
The giant stretch of frozen river was melting and the light made the lake glitter like crystals. The women lay side by side on the shore, eyes open and glassy. Their long, dark hair was like tangled rope, their faces a reflection of each other…
When two bodies are found dumped in one of the vast lakes in Lakemore, Washington, Detective Mackenzie Price is first on the scene. She identifies one of the victims as Katy Becker, a local known for her work helping the community. The other victim looks strikingly similar.
Still grappling with a shocking revelation from her past, Mack is only too happy to throw herself into the case. But when she goes to break the news to Katy’s husband, the investigation takes an unexpected turn: Katy is very much alive, and has never met the women who resemble her so closely.
Now the race is on to find the killer before Katy becomes the next victim. But when Mack unearths a disturbing connection to a sixteen-year-old suicide, she realizes they could be hunting someone whose crimes span decades – and there are more lives than just Katy’s at stake.
Addictive, pulse-pounding and packed full of jaw-dropping twists, fans of Lisa Regan, Angela Marsons and Karin Slaughter will love Their Frozen Graves.

I was very eager to read the book to see where Detective Mack’s story was going as well as to know what new and challenging case she was handling. My first book this year, and Ruhi Choudhary didn’t disappoint.
This was a gripping read as Mack and Nick race against time to find the killer of the two women with identical faces. Now they have a kidnap of one of the twins and missing women to deal with too. Are these related? How does a somewhat similar case from years before tie in to this one? How can they restore the confidence of the town in the Police Department which is seen as being corrupt and compromised? Working under pressure and trying to deal with her personal demons, Mack continues to impress with her determination and bravery.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book that kept me glued to the end. An absorbing mystery and good pacing. The author has a gift of creating great characters -including villains who send shivers up your spine!
In Hidden Lake we were told about the burden Mack carried from her childhood regarding her father’s murder. And in this book we have her father turning up. Also her confusion about the relationship she has with her husband continues. Will she be able to forgive him for cheating on her? I enjoy how the thread of these two personal stories of the detective run parallel to the case she’s solving and flow from one book to another. Now waiting for them to continue in Book Three!
