"exhilarating romantic suspense"
After an intruder enters her home, Holly Mathews manages
to kill him. However, she realizes the culprit needed
help to break in as he disabled the security system by
punching in the code and had the front door key.
Concluding that her husband Randolph wants her dead, Holly
flees her home taking their son Mikey with her. Holly
relocates under the guise of a widow with a son Harry (for
Potter), calling herself Elizabeth Baker in Brisbee,
Her dying mother informs Meredith Rawson that she has a
half-sister, who she wants treated right by splitting a
trust fund between them. Meredith confronts her father
who is in denial. He, in turn, calls someone to warn them
what occurred, but is told to fix it or else. Now someone
wants Meredith dead with only Detective Gage Gaynor who is
attracted to her and is working a cold murder case that
ties to her powerful family, keeping her safe.
COLD TARGET is an exhilarating romantic suspense with ever
increasing tension as the half-siblings who did not know
the other existed are in danger from powerful interests.
Though the climax seems shaky, the story line moves at
full speed so that the audience has quite a ride while
waiting to learn the truth. The romance takes a somewhat
back seat, yet is not neglected as readers receive an
entertaining action-packed thriller.
