Solving A Crime at A Ski Resort can be All Downhill! P.I. Regan Reilly has high hopes for her Aspen vacation. But a mystery soon has the chic detective snooping rather than skiing. Million-dollar paintings have been disappearing, and an old friend of Regan's-a folksy ex-con named Eben Bean-has vanished too. Everyone except Regan believes Eben has gone bad...again. Her hunt Solving A Crime at A Ski Resort can be All Downhill! P.I. Regan Reilly has high hopes for her Aspen vacation. But a mystery soon has the chic detective snooping rather than skiing. Million-dollar paintings have been disappearing, and an old friend of Regan's-a folksy ex-con named Eben Bean-has vanished too. Everyone except Regan believes Eben has gone bad...again. Her hunt to find him leads away from the tourist crowd into the founding families of this former frontier town.

    Five fully deserved stars for Iced. I read it partially a year ago then picked it up again recently. I found myself being endeared to many of the characters in there. There are many loose threads that are kind of resolved at the end. Regan Reilly is exactly thirty years old and has often received the favors of many a potential life partner. But this book is not a romance one. It's a characteristically old fashioned mystery. It's a full blown mystery. Half the fun is watching Regan inch closer to t Five fully deserved stars for Iced.

It's a full blown mystery. Half the fun is watching Regan inch closer to the truth about the kidnapping of an ex jewel thief. Despite the title, no one dies in this jolly book. That's not a spoiler, instead it's a pointer to the atmosphere of the book. Give the latter a chance.

    i like this book but i feel like the first two book in the series were better because of the great storyline . i thought that this book took awhile to have anything happened that made you want to keep reading the book . but i am happy that i kept reading the book till the end because when all kinds things start to happen in the book. i hope the next book in the series will be better than this one. i give this book four stars because i all the things that happened near the end of the book . if mor i like this book but i feel like the first two book in the series were better because of the great storyline . i thought that this book took awhile to have anything happened that made you want to keep reading the book . but i am happy that i kept reading the book till the end because when all kinds things start to happen in the book. i hope the next book in the series will be better than this one. i give this book four stars because i all the things that happened near the end of the book . if more things had happened sooner in the book i would have get it five stars . i have to say that i like mary higgins clark writing lot better because she has a lot more action and mystery in her books . but carol higgins clark is a great writer too. but they sure do have different style of writing but that is a good thing. if they did have the same style of writing then i would not read there books because they would be boring to read.

    I bought this book for our family's recent trip to Washington State. I didn't have time to read it during our trip, and afterward I had a hard time getting into it. When I finally had the time to read it, the book really whizzed by. It was a really interesting read with a couple of surprising twists. Having read a lot of books, I'm not easily surprised, or rather, not easily majorly surprised, but this book did just that.

The only thing I'd wish the author would do is go into more depth into the main character, Regan Reilly's, emotional story. The story felt like a standard old mystery, which is great, but Clark would take it to another level if she explored Regan's character more fully. I.e., go beyond the surface and explore her inner story. (Review written August 2008.)

Unfortunately for our villain, Regan Reilly happens to be a guest in Aspen and thru a turns of events gets involved in catching the villain.

I really enjoyed following Regan and other guests as they try to put together what happened before their arrival and the truth was incredible and really threw me for a loop but I loved it all the same!

    I read these Regan Reilly books some time ago, so I decided to listen to them. Regan and her parents have traveled to Aspen, Colorado to spend time skiing and visiting friends over the Christmas holidays. Instead of the relaxing vacation she had been dreaming of, Regan finds herself in the midst of million dollar art thefts. What makes it worse is the one person missing is Eben Bean an ex-con whom Ragan had helped get a job as a caretaker for a wealthy friend of her parents.

    I enjoyed the character of Eben Bean - finally a good main character who's a blue collar; that seems to be missing in a lot of Higgins Clark books - Carol's as well as her mother's. Blue collar characters in most of their books always tend to be greedy and desperate hoodlums whose only motivation is money - so it's very refreshing to see someone like Eben Bean - blue collar ex convict with a good heart with some funny, clumsy quirks. As for the story, it took me some time to really get into it.

Like her mother's books, its a cozy mystery that'll keep you hooked - but the humor in it, plus Regan's fun personality, really makes it distinct and fun.

    One of my favorites in the Regan Reilly series. This one takes place in Aspen. Having gone to high school in Basalt, I am familiar with some of the places in the book. Regan gets herself tangled in high form this time. In Aspen to celebrate the holidays, you get enmeshed in the fun of finding Eben and watching them go in circles to find him. Yet, in the end, success with the addition of finding family. Always a batch of laughter with some thrills and mystery, once is rarely disappointed.

    For someone who is related to one of the best mystery writer's, Carol keeps letting us know at least some of the guilty party from the beginning. The only suspenseful part is who is paying them, who has a secret identity and the small moments of threats. Seriously though, I'm only still reading because of 2 reasons, one is I love Luke, which is Reilly's dad and I do like the humor. The second reason is I am waiting for my reading buddy to get back to our book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. My thoughts on Iced: 1. Similar to her other books, it’s not as suspenseful but I enjoyed the mystery. 2. I thought Coyote was Stewart because he was sketchy but I was wrong. 3. Didn’t expect it’s going to be Tripp, the Coyote. 4. Geraldine Spoonfellow having twins was a shock. 5. Even and Bessie being the missing twins was more shocking. To think they’ve been in Aspen for a long time. 6. Geraldine reunited and getting married were a sweet way to end the story.

    Somehow I missed reading two of the books in the correct order. This was one of them. It was my least favorite of all 10 I've read so far. It seemed like someone else wrote it - the style and language were really different from the others. Somehow I missed reading two of the books in the correct order. This was one of them.

    I needed a beach read - something breezy to take my mind off studying. Dialogue is cheesy and a lot of the content was delightfully nineties. End of the day the twist ending surprised me and tied everything together quite nicely

    A Good Casual Read. Surprises abound in the conclusion of the book. I found it a bit slap stickish and way over done in obvious analogies. But this is just my opinion & story bias.

    It was a cut cozy style mystery. As usual, a lot of different sub plots intertwined to come together at the very end, in almost a comical manner. I liked it.

    A very simple easy read. It's very formulaic but with the stress of the holidays, that is sometimes what I need. A very simple easy read. It's very formulaic but with the stress of the holidays, that is sometimes what I need.
