    One thought on “Harbor Ice”

    1. I gave it two stars because the story line was good enough to keep me going and finish the book. The Writing was painful in its level of detail. Annoyed me endlessly. Instead of "she put on her coat and left" we'd get " she put on her coat that was kept in the closet. She hung the hanger back up. Left arm, right arm then buttoned up. All four buttons. She found her purse on the kitchen counter near the blue bread box. Walked back to the front door where the knob was on the left. Opened the door. [...]

    2. I liked this one a lot. I would read another in the series as it kind of leaves you wondering what will happen next. Glad I took a chance on this one. Also liked how it was set on the seacoast.

    3. Mason's initial book in the Jack Beale mystery series revolves around a pair of murders: one in the New Mexico desert, and one in the freezing waters of Rye Harbor, New Hampshire (the latter being the book's main setting). Jack must unravel the mystery behind the murders before his friend and prospective lover Max falls into danger."Harbor Ice" contains an interesting backstory behind the murders that spans generations and nations. I enjoyed trying to figure out the significance of a certain pie [...]

    4. This review was first published on Kurt's Frontier.Synopsis:In Rye Harbor, New Hampshire, a woman’s body is found under the ice. This murder is linked to another woman who was murdered in New Mexico. These two women had been companions. The woman killed in New Mexico was the aunt of Max, a feisty redheaded bartender at Ben’s Place in Rye Harbor. Jack Beale begins poking into the mystery as the threat to Max’s life increases. Jack has a personal reason to jump into action. Max is a woman he [...]

    5. Being that this story takes place in Rye, New Hampshire, I had to read it. I'm glad I did. It held my interest though there really wasn't much of a twist. Jack has been crazy about Max but is afraid to let her know his feelings. She keeps going back to Andrew every time he shows up even though he keeps breaking her heart when he leaves without so much as a goodbye. When that happens, Jack is there to pick up the pieces while Max vents her frustrations. A body is discovered in the water off the d [...]

    6. K.D. Mason has woven together wonderfully a realistic murder mystery and a touching love story. The events are exciting and the characters understandable as they race through the action and the drama. With the sad passing of Robert B. Parker the torch may have been passed to this new voice from the backstreets of New England. I eagerly await Mr. Mason’s next tale of suspense and mystery!

    7. Disappointingly vague. We never really get a sense of the scene, or of what the characters look like or what they're about. We only get the action that takes place in a scene. Plus, the representation of coastal NH is way off with details that do not suspend disbelief. I was hoping for more and got none.

    8. It took me a bit to get into this book but once I did I couldn't put it down. I will be getting the second book soon. I bought this book at a hotel in York, ME and hope to purchase my next one there too.

    9. The book interested me as it is set in Rye NH, so I downloaded it. It was okay. Liked recognizing some of the places in the book. The story has some twists that I liked. But too much of something that just doesn't work for me

    10. A local NH writer, writing a mystery that takes place in seacoast NH. One of the things that intrigued me was a friend told me you can see his progress as a writer as the series continues. He has the method down, I think with a few tweaks he could be a good mystery writer.

    11. Jack and Maxenjoyed the book until the end. it ended too quickly. needed more dialog at the end.have it a 4 stars

    12. Interesting, both romance & mystery. Hoping author tries again. Don't know why he included artist colony's relationship unless he wanted to stay fashionable though. TTS-enabled eBook. ©2010

    13. Nice to read a mystery set on the NH seacoast, but the plot is very thin and the dialogue is stilted. Plus, the author keeps shifting perspective.

    14. I liked reading this book because it is set in NH. I know the places in the book. The mystery was good. A bit too much predictable romance. Will read more from this author
