My Review:
Lauren Carr has knocked it out of the park this time. I enjoyed every second of this book, not that I don't enjoy all of her books. This one for some reason was just really great to me. Winter Frost has it all, Spy's, murder, espionage, undercover agents, faked deaths, a touch of romance, and the Geezer Squad. I love that Lauren does not overwhelm us with graphic language and sex scenes. These things do not need to be added to make great books. I love Lauren's writing style, her books are fast paced and not filled with descriptions of people, places, and things that bring nothing to the story.

Chris Matheson buried his wife or at least thought he had 3 years before. Until he runs into her face to face one day. While still in shock over Blair being alive a few days later Chris learns she really has been murdered this time, and in their old back yard. Chris and the Geezer Squad set out to answer a lot of questions. Why he was told she was dead to begin with. What she uncovered to fake her death and to end up murdered for real this time. And why is his family is being targeted by hired killers. As the mystery unravels so does the hurt of Blair leaving them in the first place.
