Firefighters race to put out a blaze at a remote farm-house, only to discover two young girls alone in the house.

Their mother is gone — and in her place is the dead body of a man, frozen into a foetal position. Two chess pieces made of ice are arranged on her doorstep. Then it happens again. A missing woman. A frozen body. Chess pieces made of ice.

DC Dove Milson and her team are on the case, but time is running out to stop the killer. Then ice sculptures are left outside her front door.

Is this check or checkmate?

THE ICE DAUGHTERS is the utterly gripping follow-up to GLASS DOLLS in D.E. White’s bestselling Detective Dove Milson series.

D. E. White’s first cosy crime series, the Ruby Baker Mysteries, was published by Joffe Books in 2017/18, under Daisy White. This was followed by two psychological thrillers in 2019 and GLASS DOLLS (Joffe Books) in 2020. The first in the Detective Dove Milson series, GLASS DOLLS, became an instant Amazon bestseller and will be available in audiobook in 2021.

“The DC Dove Milson series was inspired by a meeting with a police source handler.”

“I started out writing by scribbling ideas on napkins when flying as cabin crew.”

“As a working mum, I’ve trained myself to write anywhere: by the local swimming pool, in the car, on the train, at skating lessons . . .”


My Review

This is book 2 in the Detective Dove Milson series but the books do work well as stand alone.

Dove is called to a crime scene:  A missing mother, the frozen body of a man, a fire and chess pieces made from ice.  A bizarre scene if ever there was one.  The team begin their search for clues but there are very few and even less suspects the only possibles have solid alibis.  Every single little clue must be investigated in order for find pieces to form a picture of what is going on.  Then another crime scene with another fire, frozen man, missing mother and chess pieces.  Will the team be able to find enough clues to show the way forward?

I like Dove she is an unusual character damaged in an earlier case and her fiance, Quin is also struggling to deal with the people he couldn’t save.  The pair are very caring and dedicated to their jobs.

The team is made up of a variety of different but well defined characters that offset each other perfectly to make an effective team.

I really enjoyed this book it is packed full of intrigue and we really get into the nitty gritty world of detective work.

A gripping read.  Thank you to Joffe Books, Netgalley and the author for the advance digital copy of this book.  This is my unbiased review.
