    Gee, I enjoyed this thriller, it kept me up long into the night It s the third installment of Anne Frasier s Detective Jude Fontaine series, though it does read okay as a standalone It would probably be beneficial to have read the earlier books, but not really necessary.We have Detective Jude Fontaine, a damaged woman who holds her emotions close In this novel she s investigating a case of the body of a child found in a frozen lake in midwinter Minnesota, with another boy found soon after It soon becomes apparent that the boys have been dead for some twenty years But where have they been And why are they being found now More perplexing to Jude is the young child she finds freezing on her doorstep when she comes home one night Who is this boy And why has he been abandoned on her doorstep Lots of questions that need answering, a complex case for Jude, and it all leads to a smashing finale with a satisfying conclusion ...

    I have never read Anne Frasier before, and after reading this, in what appears to be the final part of her Detective Jude Fontaine trilogy, set in Minneapolis, Minnesota, I can understand why the author has such a huge and loyal group of readers The writing is so good, and so atmospheric, her rich descriptions of the endless snow, bitterly icy winds, and frozen winters experienced the residents made me feel as if I was right there, in the deadly wintery conditions Jude is a woman with a heartbreaking history of being abducted and tortured, cursed with a father that was nothing short of the worst of horror nightmares, it is unsurprising that she finds it hard to trust and shies away from any human contact Her strongest relationship is with her cop partner, Detective Uriah Ashby, the two have a relationship that displays their deep understanding of each other, with their ability to communicate with each other that so often needs no words Jude is gifted with the quality of being an empath, she can tune into the heart of what is going on within a p...

    Gripping Suspense And Non Stop Action I A frozen body is discovered beneath the ice in a lake while people are ice skating oblivious to the horror that has happened in their town and soon every person will be on edge in Minneapolis during this brutal and unmerciful winter Jude Fontaine and Uriah Ashby are the detectives assigned to the case of a frozen body found under the ice that may have been dead for at least twenty years and unbeknownst to them this will be the first of many murders that will be linked together in an unspeakable tragedy of events that will also have the two detectives in a fight for their own lives It had been snowing all day and turned into dangerous blizzard conditions, while on that same night a small four year old child is found outside an apartment building almost frozen to death creating another mysterious puzzle which will involve Jude in a complex and emotional journey that she does not want to travel on What a terrific action packed thriller Strong characterization and gripping tension I didn t realize this was book three in a series but it was a wonderful stand alone story and I will certainly read Anne Frasier s other Jude Fontaine books Hopefully there will be books to come because Jude is a riveting character and would like to see how she grows and develops in her personal life and her career I want to thank Thomas Mercer and Netgalley for allowing me the opportunity to read this very ...

    This book was incredibly addictive The moment I read the blurb, I was immediately intrigued I was hesitant at first, though since I hadn t read the first two books in the series That proved no problem, however, as the author still managed to make me still feel connected to Jude, Uriah and Elliot.I liked the writing style of the book, which was fairly straightforward yet descriptive The author does a fantastic job at buildi...

    I discovered this series through ads on my Kindle and devoured the first book describing Anne s harrowing ordeal The series is available through Kindle Unlimited and on Audible This was the strongest novel to date and perhaps the darkest as we delve into child trafficking when the frozen bodies of children appear in the lake and a young boy is left on a doorstepA blizzard, and discoveries regarding family gave us insight into this strong, broken, compassionate police detective We witness first hand growth, acceptance and trust as Detective Jude Fontaine is put to the test I was completely pulled into the story as Jude fought to find justice for these lost souls and devoured this in a single evening.There are triggers so be warned It was hard knowing what these children experienced emotionally, physically and sexually The story isn t graphic, and we aren t present when stronger elements of abuse occur but it broke my heart nonet...

    Thank you to Publishing for The Body Keeper EBook I won this in a Goodreads Giveaway and am leaving a review voluntarily.Wow, completely addictive I could not put this one down This is my first Detective Jude Fontaine mystery and will not be my last I definitely want to go back and read the first 2 as this one alluded to what had happened to Jude and I feel it would really help piece together her past and how it affects her present.This quote from the book really describes the book overall So strange how things intertwined in the most unexpected ways, and yet it shouldn t have been such a surprise There were definitely some surprises...

    One fabulous read Though The Body Keeper could be read as a standalone, I would highly recommend starting from the first book in the series Part of what I loved so much about this book and series, is the development of the MCs over the entirety of the series While the crimes themselves and the resulting plots were highly imaginative and required the reader to suspend reality a bit, the character development and their interactions with each other did not In fact, they were completely realistic, as the author took her time in revealing them and their growth over the series and contrasted nicely with the fast pace and gruesome nature of the crimes.Both Jude and Uriah have suffered tragedies Jude, especially, has physically survived the unimaginable Her mental survival is a bit questionable and reading about her struggle to cope and find peace in her ...

    How disappointing this book was, so much so I ll never read another in this series The number of coincidences throughout the book are so unbelievable it ruins the story and they begin within the first few pages Along with that unbelievable storyline, there is the problem of the author adding so muc...
