“I stayed up most of the night reading this one. Frozen Footprints
I just could not go to sleep until I knew the ending.”

“The suspense ratchets up page by page until it becomes so achingly taut that you wonder if either the reader or the characters can stand much more. There’s not a dull moment as the action, the physical and emotional pain, and soul-searching moral challenges steadily increase. Just when the suspense is stretched to the breaking point, the author springs upon the reader an ending that is both surprising and satisfying.”
– Gerard D. Webster, award-winning author of In-Sight and The Soul Reader.

“Warning: do NOT pick up this book if you have (a) life responsibilities, (b) less than 24 hours to commit to reading it continuously, and/or (c) the inability to walk away from a stirring and compelling storyline…. This is a fast-paced thriller by a Catholic author, though calling it a ‘Catholic book’ makes it sound like faith is shoved down your throat, which it is NOT.”

“Mrs. Heckenkamp has outdone herself with her latest young adult novel…. I absolutely loved Frozen Footprints, and would highly recommend it to all those looking for a book that is wholesome without being boring, exciting without being inappropriate, and leaves you with a satisfied feeling. I’m looking forward Mrs. Heckenkamp’s future novels, and hope she will continue to produce books which are as thrilling as Hitchcock films, but still succeed in teaching valuable lessons.”

“After getting about two chapters in, I found myself having trouble putting the book down and finding every excuse I could to get back to it! I won’t ruin the ending, but let me just say that it is a jaw dropper that leaves you wanting more!”

“[A]t first I thought it was going to be a story too young for an older adult. Not so.”

“I read Frozen Footprints in a few hours. Yes, it was suspenseful, a type of story I wouldn’t normally read. But it was not overly graphic, gory, or descriptive where it shouldn’t be. Nor did it contain swearing, inappropriate language, or content that I wouldn’t let my teen daughters read – and I’m picky about things like that.”

“I read it in a single sitting and didn’t even notice the hours passing by… All the cliches for ‘nail-biter’ and ‘edge of my seat’ fiction apply when it comes to this book.”

“I read Therese Heckenkamp’s previous novel, Past Suspicion, and really enjoyed it, so I knew I’d probably be pleased with Frozen Footprints as well. Not only was I pleased, I was blown away…the reader is kept on the edge of his seat wondering how things will sort themselves out… Ms. Heckenkamp, I’ll be waiting for another like this, but I’ll be sleeping with the lights on!”
 AnnMarie Creedon, author of Angela’s Song.

“[Therese Heckenkamp] creates characters that are believable–almost frighteningly so. They are so realistically flawed and yet so convincing in their faith journeys…. It may sound cliche but I couldn’t put it down!”
 Amy M. Bennett, author of End of the Road.

“Therese Heckenkamp’s second novel is an exciting page turner with non-stop action… Frozen Footprints has all the elements of an edgy thriller with Catholic references interspersed throughout the novel… Therese Heckenkamp’s talent as a storyteller is the ability to create a plot, characters and setting that are realistic and at the same time entertaining. Her writing style is crisp and varied and she keeps the reader on the edge of his/her seat.”
– Ellen Gable, award-winning author of Stealing Jenny, In Name Only, and Emily’s Hope.

“It is a chilling novel…a well-written book with engrossing characters…Therese does an amazing job seamlessly weaving in the Catholic faith into the book. I highly recommend this book for all lovers of suspense novels.”

“I freely admit, suspense is not my genre of choice, but Heckenkamp once again managed to keep me interested and invested in this story.”

“[Heckenkamp] knows how to write effective antagonistic characters. More importantly, she knows how to keep the reader guessing.”
