2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: A Frost of Cares by Amy Rae Durreson (230-07-28-2016)

1) A Frost of Cares was a very fascinating story. It was suspenseful and I couldn't stop until I had finished it. I fell in love with the two main characters, you could just feel how much they loved each other. I was really sad when it ended. I especially enjoyed the writing style. I will definitely read this one again.

2) Right from the start A Frost of Cares pulled me in and kept me fully engaged to the very end. The characters are fully three dimensional, and their voices individual. Very well written with an effortless flow that made this story a pleasure to read. Highly recommended , and I will definitely read more by this new to me author.

3) This story rates up there as one of the best I've read this year. The writing style made it a very easy to get sucked into it, and I spent a couple of late nights because I had to know what happened next. Atmospheric, and creepy in places, Part ghost story, part romance with a very satisfying ending on both fronts. I loved the characters - not just Luke and Jay but the supporting cast too. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

Military historian Luke Alcott leaps at the chance to live in the seventeenth-century country mansion of Eelmoor Hall, home of the Royal Military School of Medicine, after being offered a job cataloging the school’s archives. Luke believes he chose the perfect place to start a new life and put his broken past behind him. But soon after settling into the old house, he hears strange noises—like footsteps—and he begins to suffer from terrible nightmares.

The only person Luke can turn to for help is the taciturn caretaker, Jay, a veteran of the Afghanistan war who carries an old battle wound. Together they try to understand Eelmoor Hall’s history and decipher what could be causing the haunting. As the weather grows colder and snow dusts the countryside, a child goes missing. Luke needs to deal with his own demons and learn to trust in love again if he hopes to face down the angry spirit and find the missing girl.
