“From the first page to the last, Julie’s mysteries grab the reader and don’t let up.” – Sally Berneathy, USA Today Bestselling Author
Ellison Russell’s life resembles a rollercoaster ride. And rollercoasters make her ill. Her daughter Grace has a crush on a boy Ellison doesn’t trust and she’s taken to hosting wild parties when Ellison goes out for the evening. Worse, the bank which represents Grace’s inheritance from her father may be in trouble.
When a meeting with the chef at the country club leads to the discovery of a body, Ellison can’t afford cold feet. She must save the bank, find the killer, and convince Grace (and herself) that powerful women don’t need men to rescue them.

Julie Mulhern is the USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders.
She is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean–and she’s got an active imagination. Truth is–she’s an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.
Thank you NetGalley and Henery Press for my copy of Cold As Ice- Book #6 in The Country Club Murders. This was my first Julie Mulhern novel, but it won’t be the last!
Ellison Russell has a problem; her late husband’s bank is in danger of foreclosure, which would ruin her teenage daughter’s legacy, and she keeps finding bodies.
Set in nineteen seventy-four Kansas City, Mulhern brings the era to life with witty dialogue, a rich cast of characters, and a handsome police detective, Anarchy Jones. (Love, love that name!)
The story touches on real life issues such as adultery, family dynamics, and teen pregnancy.
Hope is the cruelest of emotions.
The jagged shards of dreams I didn’t know were mine swirled around me. They pricked my armor, my skin, my heart.
I give Cold As Ice 5+ lovely kisses. This is a must read novel!
