Review by Anniek
Crystal has embraced the fact that she has special abilities. She helped a girl from school before and now she is helping her mother's fiancé Teddy to, hopefully, solve the abduction of a young child. Crystal can see ghosts and she can see into the future. She is also very good at connecting with people on a deeper level. Crystal and her mother will be spending Thanksgiving with Teddy's parents, who live near the sea. They are looking forward to a great short holiday. Robin, Teddy's cousin, is also joining them on this trip. He's a little older than Crystal and plays in a band. She remembers Robin being rude to her and she isn't prepared to meet a kinder version of him. The fact that he is also easy on the eyes doesn't make things any better for Crystal.
After I read Fire in Frost, the first book in this series, I knew that I wanted to read Desire in Frost as well. Alicia Rades knows how to keep your interest throughout the entire story. It's fast-paced and there aren't any dull moments. I kept wishing for Crystal to find the young girl who went missing from her bedroom. I like that Crystal and her mother believe that everybody is born with psychic abilities, but that some people are more connected than others. Emma, Crystal's best friend, has adopted the possibility of being more connected herself and works very hard to get better. It was a bonus for me that she actually did improve and that she was able to help Crystal because of it.
Desire in Frost is an easy read that will keep you fascinated from beginning to end. If you like to read about paranormal occurrences, friendship, love and a little crime to complete the story this is definitely a series you have to pick up.
