Publisher's Summary

Note from the author: This is book nine in the award-winning LeGarde Mystery series, but it can easily be heard as a standalone, and all of the books can be heard in any order.

What do you do when your past comes back to kill you?

After escaping her abusive husband, life is finally good for Camille LeGarde and her daughter, Shelby. She has a great relationship with her new husband, Gus, who also loves Shelby like his own child. But the LeGarde family's fragile oasis is shattered when the man of Camille's nightmares is released from prison.

Greg Robinson never wanted to be a father. But he's playing the biological card for all it's worth to get close to Shelby, so he can realize his true goal - revenge against Gus LeGarde, the man who "stole" his wife and daughter.

Lured by the promise of connecting with her real dad, Shelby vanishes, sending Gus and Camille on a desperate race through the worst ice storm of the century to find her before Robinson can act on his chilling threat....

"If I can't have them, neither can you."

    "Welcome to the family!"

    --I was given this audiobook is exchange for an honest review.

    I loved that even though this is the ninth book of series, I was able to listen to this book and feel right at home with all of the characters. Gus makes you fall into his everyday life, taking care of Joe and dealing with his teenage stepdaughter, Shelby. I would love to be a guest at one of his meals! With that being said, getting to know the characters and meeting Shelby's real father as he gets out of jail, finding out what she thinks the relationship there should be and what he wants, and who is under the ice? So much going on, you get sucked in and just keep listening.


    Lou Hecker does n amazing job narrating this. His voice is very rich and warm, but is able to portray the young, old, accents...amazing portrayal.

    "A Decent Story, Feels like a Soap Opera"

    I started listening to this book because it was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBlast dot com.

    I did not realize that it was the ninth book in a very long series. At first I thought the author had left out a lot detail, for instance a one line mention that the daughter had been in a comma most of her life. I realized that I had jumped into the middle of a soap opera and the character development had been going on through the previous eight books.

    That being said, I am reviewing this from the position of this book as a standalone and not one of a series. I liked the book in that the story was relatively complete once you got to the end. Overall the story was interesting and it kept me listening to it each day until complete. I thought the author spent too much time on the relationships in the book, especially Gus's grandchildren. It was like sitting and watching someone play with their grandchildren and not being able to walk away after the initial cuteness wore off quickly. That combined with the sappy voice of the narrator was a little too much at times.

    The narrator's female voices were just plain annoying to me. His voice was either too high or too deep for a regular woman, and it felt like he was trying too hard to make the women dramatic, much more than the men.

    Overall the story is decent, the characters are interesting, but there is too much time spent on daily interactions that no one cares about, except if your into soap operas. The narrator adds to that distraction and adds too much drama to the book in his voice.

    "Slow start"
    Would you listen to Under The Ice: A Gus LeGarde Mystery again? Why?

    No. The dialog was a little awkward. I had trouble forming a strong sense of what kind of guy Gus is. At first he came off as a really sweet guy (loving husband, good step dad, grandpa, son-in-law, chef, prof), then there were section where I really wanted him to toughen up..into a Jack Reacher kind of guy. It never really happened. His reference to "pal" and "buddy" made me think he was talking to a child or a pet. Not a good friend or mentor.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Aaron Paul Lazar? Why or why not?

    No. Though it was fun to listen to a book based around an area which I am familiar.


    Did Lou Hecker do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Eventually. Mr. Hecker had a nice character range. Unfortunately, some of the characters (Matty, Sig) were too much and took away from the story. Too many pauses threw off the overall rhythm. Some breaths were unnecessary and distracting. I would like to hear some of Mr. Lazar's work in the future. He has a nice sound.

    "A LIttle Disappointed"

    Family and friends are a very important part of Under the Ice. The relationships among the characters was warm and believable. Other than that, the rest of the story was slow going. Since this is the 9th book in the series, I wonder if I would have liked it more if I had read the other books in the series first. The narrator was ok, but the voices of some of the characters were fake and whiny.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It takes way too long to develop.

    He did a fine job a slow moving book.
