I’m once again blown away by Fay Lamb’s writing!
Frozen Notes is book four of the Amazing Grace series. I was assured, since I hadn’t read the other three in this series, that it could be a stand-alone, and it can.
The opening scenes were difficult for me due to PTSD (just a warning for others). However, I wanted to read the story, mainly out of curiosity, to see how an author I thought of as a romance writer handled a mystery suspense novel. I wasn’t disappointed. Fay Lamb has a unique talent for bringing any genre she writes to life.
Once I got past the first chapter, I was unable to put Frozen Notes down! I read it in one sitting over the course of a couple of hours. I was so drawn into the story and the lives of the characters that EVERYTHING in the background disappeared.
Frozen Notes is a hard-hitting tale dealing with addiction, murder, lies and abuse, and that’s just a tiny glimpse into the lives of the major individuals living with Amazing Grace, North Carolina. Fay Lamb takes gritty, ugly and petrifying circumstances, with no apparent chance for redemption, and turns them into moments of deliverance, recovery and salvation. She masterfully intermeshes the disparate, but linked, lives of each person and brings healing and hope.
I admire how she interposes profound messages of faith and deliverance throughout, in an artless way, never leaving you feeling preached to or beaten over the head with the tenet or belief. Her style opens the way for natural and genuine knowledge of biblical principles.
I received Frozen Notes from the author. However, I was under no obligation to write a review.
Fay Lamb is a gifted writer who creates wonderful, three-dimensional characters in the midst of an action packed story. ~Margaret Daley, USA Today Bestselling Author

Lyric Carter’s dreams of fame and fortune in a rock band ended the day Balaam Carter left to pursue their dreams without her. When Balaam’s brother promised to love and protect Lyric and to love her son, Cade—his brother, Balaam’s child—as his own, she believed him. But Braedon turned her dreams into a nightmare by killing Balaam’s best friend, turning the gun on himself, and placing Lyric in the middle of a criminal investigation that could leave her and Cade dead.
Balaam Carter’s every dream has come true, but he’s living in a nightmare of addiction and regret. The famous rock star would give everything he has to return to the girl he once held in his arms—back when his only crime was running moonshine for his father. Now, he’s seeking redemption for all the destruction his dreams have brought to the people he loves.
No one said the road to recovery would be easy, but Balaam is also desperate to protect Lyric and the little boy he left behind from a state full of drug lords who believe Lyric has the evidence that will tumble their lucrative cartels. Balaam’s continued sobriety, his natural ability for finding his way out of trouble, and his prayers to God above for the strength to never let them down again are all that he has to protect Lyric and his son, and still, he doesn’t know if he’s up for the task.
