"This book kept me enthralled. There is one part where I actually felt the rising panic that was gripping Sara as matters began to spiral out of her control. So clever was the writing that I put the book down for a moment and tried to think how I could have resolved the situation, and I could only feel panic. The sense of place, the cold, the fear, and the isolation seeps into your bones as you read. Highly recommended." Lizzie Hayes, Editor, Mystery Women Magazine (UK) Book of the Month Selection
"At the heart of Nadine Doolittle’s debut novel Iced Under is the frightening concept of whether seven-year-old Oralee Pelletier missing for the last six months has been abducted by a person or persons unknown or is, as an inquest concludes, a victim of 'death by misadventure.' It’s a mystery that ensnares about-to-be-finally-divorced Sara Wolseley and her two daughters, eight-year-old Darcy and thirteen-year-old Brittany (...) An actor-turned-mystery author, Doolittle shows a lot of potential for her new career. The plot is well managed with its mixture of mysteries and Sara’s deteriorating family circumstances as a nearly poverty stricken divorcee (...) Given her achievements here, Nadine Doolittle’s name is one to watch for in the future." M. Wayne Cunningham, Mysterious Reviews for Hidden Staircase Mystery Books
