Cold River

Cold River - Liz Adair Cold River is an enjoyable story. Mandy Steenburg makes a move to a small town to take over as superintendent, but nothing has prepared her for the opposition she meets. At first I wasn't sure I liked Mandy all that much. She did come off very strong in the beginning, as if she was going to come in and save everyone. But, as I read the book, I began to like her more. She wasn't afraid to stand up for her beliefs, but she was also able to allow people to change her attitude about the town.

I was under the impression going into this book that it was a romantic suspense. I would have said it was more of a suspense novel. The romance in the book is almost non-existent. I'm not even sure when Mandy and Grange were supposed to have fallen in love. So the HEA in the end of the book seemed off and forced to me. I did have a hard time figuring out who the bad guy was and was surprised in the end.

Cold River is worth picking up. Give it a shot.
