She may be a bestselling author, but ex-librarian Jacqueline Kirby's views on the publishing biz aren't fit to print. In fact, she's thinking of trading celebrity for serenity and a house far away from fiendish editors and demented fans when her agent whispers the only words that could ever make her stay: Naked in the Ice. Seven years ago, this blockbuster skyrocketed Kathleen Darcy to instant fame. Now the author's heirs are looking for a writer to pen the sequel. It's an opportunity no novelist in her right mind would pass up, and there's no doubting Jacqueline's sanity...until she starts digging through the missing woman's papers--and her past. Until she gets mixed up with Kathleen's enigmatic lover. Until a series of nasty accidents convince her much too late that someone wants to bring Jacqueline's story--and her life--to a premature end.… (més)

The brash and decisive ex-librarian, now a best-selling author Jacqueline Kirby is back once more.

While meeting with her agent Chris at the Tavern on the Green, she learns he intends to retire. She will need to find a new agent. He suggests she interview Booton Stokes as one possibility.

Chris offers her the carrot at the end of the stick if she selects Stokes, a chance to write the sequel to Naked in Ice. One of the most well-known and loved books of the past decade. Kathleen Darcy the author has finally been declared dead by the courts. Booton Stokes and Kathleen's heirs will make the selection based on outlines produced by competing authors. What a prize this will be for the chosen author.

Jacqueline is chosen to write the sequel!

But can she keep her detecting in check? She already told Patrick O'Brien that she suspects Kathleen didn't commit suicide but was murdered.

A suspenseful but fun mystery with many threads going in several directions. ( )

I am so sad that there are no more Jacqueline Kirby books since they always made me laugh with their wit. That said, this was a good end to the series. It was a challenging mystery; I was surprised at the ending. I laughed at some of Jacqueline's observations. It also skewered the publishing industry, not so gently.

If you've enjoyed other books in the series, you'll like this one. If you like well-written mysteries with clever humor, read the series. ( )

Jacqueline Kirby is a writer who is chosen to write a sequel to a book by Kathleen Darcy who disappeared seven years earlier. But as she was researching and interviewing Kathleen's family and friends she got it into her head that Kathleen was not really dead,so Jacqueline begins then turns into a sleuth rather than an author. As she investigates the same accidents that happened to Kathleen begin to happen to her. Jacqueline is a likable ,little eccentric and slightly rude but persistent. If you want to know more please read this wonderfully written book with great characters and a fine storyline.
Thanks again to Net Galley and Grand Central Publishing. ( )

Moderately entertaining mystery involving the disappearance of a well-known author and the questions surrounding her presumed death. ( )
  turtlesleap | Jul 6, 2011 |
Jacqueline's transformation from straight-laced librarian to flamboyant writer is complete in this last book in the series. The mystery was suitably complex, though like all the mysteries in this series, the reader doesn't get all the clues until the requisite 'winding up' scene where Jacqueline lays out all the pieces. Overall, the series is entertaining but not the best example of Ms. Peter's writing. ( )
