    One thought on “Shelf Ice”

    1. I did enjoy this one to the best of my recollection, but when I finished I dinged three stars so I will have to leave it at that. I was on a strange vacation off the grid and think I had better circle back and try another to see why I wasn't awarding more stars. Heck, how can one complain with this kind of dialogue: "What was he doing here in the middle of the night? Perhaps he was killed somewhere else and brought here for cremation." "That would have been considerate," said Sue. "Bring him to [...]

    2. Murders and mysteries in Northern MichiganThis is the fourth in the Ray Elkins series set in a non-specific Northwestern Michigan locale (somewhere in the Traverse City region) which adds to the interest I have in the series! In this book, there is a lot of detail regarding winter kayaking on the big lake-enough to let me know I'll never be brave enough to try! Interesting character development, a lovable dog and a new love interest for Sheriff Ray.

    3. I got through this by gritting my teeth. First, the good stuff The author does a really good job with description, not too verbose so that the story drags, but enough that I could really see what was happening. Also, an interesting mystery. Unfortunately, the mystery just kind of fizzles. (view spoiler)[When Elise dies accidentally in a brief firefight (loved the description of the fire following the flare gun), the mystery is magically solved? What about Gunne's involvement -- he had the strong [...]

    4. I got this as a daily special on Kindle because it looked interesting and I know Michigan well. And I enjoyed it. The unnamed tiny town setting is somewhere reasonably close, but north of Traverse City. It's winter when these occurrences start and turns into much more than anticipated. The atmosphere and the feelings and relationships of the main characters are revealed in giving the reader an insight into the peoplewhere they are going and where they are coming from. It starts with a murder and [...]

    5. Well writtenI enjoyed this book very much. It is a good mystery with interesting characters. I wish the author had written just a little more to tie up some lose ends but over all the ending left me satisfied.

    6. I enjoyed his book until the end. It didn't wrap things up and left them open ended. I am thinking I may have missed something. There were references to people in other books and a little hard to keep track of where they fit in. Basically it was an easy read.

    7. Shelf iceI chose this rating because I didn't like the way it ended. you are left dangling because there is no solid ending.

    8. I am really getting into this series. The sense of place is amazing located in the fictional Cedar County in the northwest of Lower Michigan encompassing much of the Lake coastline. I have never traveled to that part of the state and not sure I ever want to between the horrible winters and mosquitoes the rest of the year. But my husband spent much of his childhood near Hicks Lake and has many fond memories of the area.This mystery is set in the late winter when shelf ice is prevalent up and down [...]

    9. Good Book but major cliffhanger.Just found this author. The plot and characters seem to come together fairly well, although it seems the writer got distracted while writing and left one thought for another. There seemed to be more than one plot going one but only one was being discovered. I am usually generous with giving stars where they are deserved but this book ended with no resolution. End of page going on a road trip and that's it. Never got full meaning of story and ending.

    10. Generally, I prefer books set in areas I'm familiar with. Even though I lived in Chicago until I was 9, I've spent most of the rest of my 72 years in Puerto Rico and Florida. the idea of kayaking around on a frozen lake is foreign to mebut the descriptions in this book put me right in the middle of the actions. The characters are likable despite their flaws and the plot is ok's the weakest element of the book. I've read 4 of the books in this series and plan to work my way through to the end.

    11. This was one of the monthly freebies from - otherwise, I didn't know the author but thought a thriller might be fun for a change of pace. The writing was not outstanding, but I was not able to guess the outcome until the last few pages. Even then, as the main character stated, there were still a lot of loose ends, leaving me feeling surprised when I turned the last page and realized the book had ended. Oh well like I said, it was free!

    12. I liked the way the story developed and gripped you so you had to finish. An artist texts her friend who works dispatch on nights. Someone is breaking in and help is needed then the line goes dead. The police have to go in heavy snowladen roads to a cottage. But no one expects a large snow plow to run them down as they are in dd

    13. Good read but sketchy ending.Always enjoy Stander's books. This was better than most as there was less time spent learning about kayaking and cooking. Overall a good, pacy whodunit. If i have any criticism it is that the end didn't seem properly finished, almost as if the author wasn't sure it would stand up to scrutiny.

    14. A who dunnit to intrigue everybodyWho killed the artist then nearly killed a sheriff and his Deputy. Who is the mysterious man and where is he hiding. Things get out of kilter as body after body is discovered and what has the 'new religion guy' got to do with it all? A mystery from start to finish. Hard to put down once started.

    15. Love it!!Kept me engrossed, and focused from beginning to end. So many twists & turns!! I loved not seeing ahead of the characters, and having the same puzzle pieces to put together they did. Looking forward to the next book. Was an excellent trip to Michigan in the winter, home sweet home.

    16. Shelf IceShelf Ice is set in Michigan. I knew exactly where the author was talking about. The Towns and Lake Michigan. It makes it even more interesting. It's a good mystery that keeps you engaged from page to page.I would suggest you read the first novel in this series before Ice Shelf.

    17. Think winter cold up north in a rural area. Think of cops, murders, new wave ministries more concerned with presentation than content. Think sex and drugs and rock and roll, but not a major part of the story. Think depressed economy, scarce jobs, long winters, kayaking despite the weather, and missing people. Pretty interesting story. Enjoy.

    18. Good mystery This is the first book by this author and it was a very good mystery. I will look forward to the next book.If you like mystery that keep you wondering who did it then you will like this book.Yes I would recommend this book.

    19. a sheriff in a small norther country, where there is a LOT of ice and snow, has a murder in his town. His girl friend(?) leaves to go to the city, but there seems to be a couple of other ladies ready to step into her shoes. A televangelist builds a church in his town.

    20. I am really enjoying this series. I read #6 first and it has prompted me to go back and read the entire series. They are best read in order but can be read as stand alone novels too.

    21. Interesting readInvolved characters with thoughtful descriptions. Believable story line. Apt descriptions of Michigan. Looking forward to reading more of the series.

    22. Incomplete case remains unsolved!My ebook was incomplete. Very disappointed, case simply was not solved. No idea if I have any remedy available? Why?

    23. I miss the lakes, but not in winter. Kindle is discounting this series, which is why I read another one, and I have to say Stander does a much better job wrapping up loose ends in this one.

    24. ComplicatedGood basic plot, though unnecessarily complicated. Should have tied up all of the loose ends at the end. Enough said.

    25. PageturnerPure Michigan. Realistic characters that are easy to like. Fast paced and exciting. Sheriff is relaxed and likeable. Looking forward to next book.

    26. Wow.This book has so much depth. A real page turner. I would recommend it to all WHO loves mystery. Excellent.

    27. Another good story in the UP (I think) where weather and food are as important as the other characters, the local sheriff and his deputy. This one relates how the dog becomes a shared companion.

    28. A resounding mystery.What a great read. Clues, clues and more clues with nothing given away. Beyond scenic with great descriptions and weather.
