Reviews for Frozen Footprints:

“Suspense ratchets up page by page.”
— Gerard D. Webster, award-winning author of In-Sight and The Soul Reader

“Therese Heckenkamp’s second novel is an exciting page turner with non-stop action… Frozen Footprints has all the elements of an edgy thriller…. 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

“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.”
— Sarah A. Reinhard, author of Catholic Family Fun, A Catholic Mother’s Companion to Pregnancy, and more.

“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.”
— M. R. Zapp,

“…wholesome without being boring, exciting without being inappropriate…as thrilling as Hitchcock…”
— Abigail C. Reimel,
