Review of The Darkest Frost Vol. 1

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

The Darkest Frost by Tanya Holmes
Series: Volume 1
Genres: Mystery, Paranormal
Published by Virtual Acquisition Pages: 277
Format: eARC


When the ghost of her best friend begs for her help, psychic detective Denieve Knight goes undercover as a live-in domestic to catch a killer. She sets her sights on the most likely suspect: her friend’s mysterious employer, Doctor Braeden Frost.

Dubbed "Dr. Death" by the press, the notorious hematologist is linked to nineteen other suspicious fatalities—all are former patients. The brooding recluse is a man of many secrets, the darkest of which may be lurking beneath the leather gloves he never removes.

First Line

I’d watched Caryn’s boss closely. Waited for a chance to breach his inner circle.

What I thought of this book

The Darkest Frost is a bit like a Beauty and the Beast novel in the fact that Frost is very rude in the beginning. Psychic detective Denieve Knight goes undercover when she thinks that Braeden Frost killed her friend who worked for him. After getting there though she starts seeing her friends ghost and she is trying to tell her something.

Denieve knows that Braeden could be a killer but the more she is with him in the house the more she tries and brings him out of his mood. He is called “Dr. Death” by everyone and the media because several of his patients have died but there is more to it than what everyone thinks. He has been cursed because it’s something that happens when one person splits into two people and his touch is killer.

Braeden doesn’t want to like Danielle (Denieve) but he does start to like her, but things are complicated because he is an immortal. He is one half of two, his brother is the other half and they look like twins and they can also feel what the other feels. Sometimes they can even come together. It’s rather kind of strange.

The Darkest Frost started out pretty interesting but then about half way through it’s like it stalled and all that happens is normal stuff. It was like reading about someone going about their day today life and that is when it got pretty boring for me and I tend to skip around when I get bored.

By the end of the novel you still don’t know exactly what is going on because this was part one of two and so it just pretty much stops and leaves you hanging. There are things about  The Darkest Frost that I am curious about but not sure if it’s enough to make me read the second half. I would like to know what will happen between the two characters and the brother because they are all connected.

Overall it just didn’t impress me much so if you think it sounds interesting you can give it a try and maybe you will like it more than me. Not every books fits every person.

  1. Sometimes that happens with the first book in a series. The author builds the world and plot and the really good stuff doesn’t happen until the next one. I’m reading so many different series right now I’m reluctant to start another.
