Do you think that you have what it takes to be a crisis negotiator? You would have to keep your cool when the stuff is about to hit the fan. Whatever you do or say, can be the difference in saving the lives of the hostages or not.
In Cold & Deadly by Toni Anderson, Dominic Sheridan is a crisis negotiator for the FBI. Sheridan and FBI agent Ava Kanas have a mutual friend who has recently passed away. Everyone believes that the friend committed suicide, except Ava.
Her theory is that someone is targeting FBI agents. Of course, no one believes her. She only has her theory but her boss isn’t supportive of investigating the case much further. The only person that listens to her is Dominic Sheridan.
Of course, they are probably going to fall in love even though they don’t want to because falling in love is ridiculous. They are probably going to come too close to the person who is murdering their fellow FBI agents. They are each going to risk their life and career to save the other one.
I did like reading this book. The romance part was predictable but I think that is what people like about romance novels. We know that the couple is going to fight and seem mismatched but still profess their love at the end.
The part that I did really enjoy was the mystery. I did figure out who one of the accomplices was before he revealed himself. However, the main antagonist was a little more difficult to spot. When they revealed themselves, I was like, “How did I not see that coming?” I was just trying to enjoy the surprise.
So if you’re looking for a good mystery/romance, check out “Cold & Deadly.”
- I received an ebook from Inkslinger PR in exchange for doing a review. All opinions are my own. Obviously.
Whenever someone can say, “I didn’t see that coming,” that’s a HUGE plus. So much is easily predictable these days that being genuinely baffled and surprised is pure pleasure.
