New Release Book Review: Cold Blooded by Toni Anderson
About COLD BLOODED
Searching for the truth…
Disgraced investigative journalist Pip West is devastated when she discovers her best friend’s body face-down in a tranquil lake. When cops and federal agents determine that her friend overdosed then drowned, Pip knows they’re mistaken and intends to prove it.
Special Agent Hunt Kincaid doesn’t trust journalists and has no patience for Pip’s delusions, especially since her meddling could reveal why the FBI is interested in her friend’s last days. The dead scientist worked at the cutting edge of vaccine research and might have a connection to a new, weaponized, vaccine-resistant anthrax strain that just hit the black market.
…just turned deadly.
Pip is thrown off her game by grief and her unexpected attraction to the handsome federal agent. Hunt battles the same unwelcome pull, determined to resist the heat that threatens to consume them both. But the more Pip digs, the closer she gets to both the sexy FBI agent, and to a bioweapons terrorist who’s more than capable of cold-bloodedly sacrificing anyone who gets in his way.
I really enjoy Toni Anderson’s book plots, and Cold Blooded
is no exception. Once again, we get a multi-faceted story that moves in a
variety of directions but in the end it all merges into a satisfying end.
The relationship between Pippa, a journalist, and Hunt, an
FBI agent starts off as hostile as they find themselves on opposite sides of an
investigation into the death of Pippa’s best friend Cindy. As Hunt and his
colleagues investigate, his path often crosses Pippa’s. She is not satisfied
with the official ruling about Cindy’s cause of death and decides to do her own
Hostility aside, there is an attraction between Pippa and Hunt
that they both recognise is not a wise thing for them to pursue. They are wary
of each other, and their past experiences have coloured their view of the
opposite sex and relationships in general. I liked the romantic journey we took
with these characters as little by little they begin to trust in themselves and
in each other.
Alongside the romance, the ongoing discoveries during the
investigation drive the suspense elements of the story at a great nail biting
Cold Blooded is a terrific addition to the Cold Justice
