ARC Review: Buried Under Ice by Cynthia Eden

Once she was falling in love with him, but now she hates him.

FBI Special Agent Oliver Foxx lied to Lark Lawson. Lied, used, seduced, and betrayed her. Four ultimate sins. The special agent got close to Lark just so that he could prove her twin brother was guilty of murder. Correction, multiple murders. The deceitful special agent believed that her brother was a serial killer, and now, because she let the wrong man get close, Lark’s brother is rotting in a jail cell. Her fault, but she’s going to fix things. Or die trying. Though she’d really, really prefer not to die…

It’s up to Lark to prove her brother’s innocence.

Lark knows her brother isn’t guilty. He is the only family she has left, and she is not about to watch him go down for crimes he never committed. So now she’s determined to hunt down the real killer. No one seems to believe that she’s up to the task, but when danger begins to stalk her, it’s clear that Lark has attracted someone’s attention. To a deadly degree.

She also has an annoying special agent suddenly shadowing her every move.

Oliver never planned to get emotionally involved with the passionate and too lovely Lark, but his best laid plans went straight to hell when she entered his world. Oliver is used to profiling killers. He doesn’t know how to win back the only woman who has ever touched his heart. Especially when he broke hers. But when it becomes apparent that Lark is in the crosshairs of a dangerous killer, there is no way that Oliver can stand on the sidelines.

He played dirty before, and he’ll do it again.

Losing Lark isn’t an option. Winning her back? Convincing her to love him again? And—most importantly—keeping her alive? Absolutely on Oliver’s agenda. He will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. The hunt for a killer has never been more personal for him. And the desire he feels for Lark? Never been stronger. He doesn’t just want her. He’s obsessed with getting her back.

But someone else is obsessed, too. And time may be running out for Lark…

The Ice Breakers are ready to solve another cold case, but things will get blazing hot for Lark and Oliver. Desire. Deception. Danger. You just can’t trust anyone these days, and Lark is about to discover that the world around her is full of lies. Love and hate…sometimes, it can be hard to tell the difference between these two emotions. Just like it can be hard to tell the difference between the guilty and the innocent.
I can't believe here it is 2024 and this is my first review. I so glad it's for an author that I just love. Her books always make me happy. She has some of the best heroes. Her heroines rock too. 

I was really looking forward to Buried Under Ice. I couldn't wait to see what Oliver had done to Lark. I knew it was going to be a good story. I figured he had to do something really bad. Oh boy did he. I have to admit I was shocked at how badly it turned out for poor Oliver. For a minute there he had it all in the palm of his hand. A job he loved and a woman he was falling in love with. So why did he go and arrest her brother? The job of course. Can't be a good FBI agent and not do your job. Much can be said about Oliver but not being good at his job isn't one of them. 

I love Lark she is so sweet, and she loves her bother unconditionally. Now she has reasons for that that's more than just family love and you'll learn all about that as the story goes on. I'd love to say more but I want you to learn all this on your own. It would ruin the story. 

This story is a good one with so many twists and turns. You find yourself doubting what right in front of your face. Eden does a great job at making you follow along and she takes you on a crazy ride. I love Oliver and Lark together. They really work. And I get that she doesn't trust him totally at the moment but that doesn't stop them from loving each other. 

You'll enjoy the story and the new characters that we've met. I know I'm wondering about them. So much to learn. I'm hoping they both get their own stories. Fingers crossed.
