About the Book
“A terrific, twisting romantic thriller that will keep you guessing until the end! Don’t miss this one!” ~#1 NYT Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy.
When Darby O’Roarke wakes up in a strange house with a dead man – with no memory of what happened – she knows who she has to call: FBI Supervisory Special Agent Eban Winters…the man she fell for, and who rejected her, last summer.
A negotiator isn’t supposed to get involved with kidnap victims, and Eban has been trying to avoid the temptation that is Darby O’Roarke ever since they met. One frantic phone call has him racing to Alaska to uncover the truth, but he faces stubborn opposition from the local police and a growing media frenzy.
Getting Darby released from jail and keeping her safe is his first priority. When another woman is brutally slain, evidence emerges that suggests Darby is being framed, and that the culprit is a vicious serial killer who has eluded the FBI for more than a decade…and, now, the killer has Darby in their sights.
NICUnurse’s Review of Cold As Ice by Toni Anderson
I am a long-time fan of romantic suspense, thanks to my unfailing love of Nora Roberts books. And I’ve been a fan of Toni Anderson’s books for quite some time for many of the same reasons. Her plots are complex, engaging, and well thought out, which always equals an exciting and entertaining read. Cold As Ice is the 5th book in her Cold Justice-The Negotiators series. Usually, I’d tell you it can be read as a standalone book. While that’s mostly true, to understand Darby’s former trauma and where she and Eban first met, as well as the nuances of their relationship at the beginning of Cold As Ice, it’s best to pick up Colder Than Sin (book 2) to get the most out of this story.
I’ve been (not so) patiently waiting for Darby and Eban’s story since we were first introduced to her in book 2. After their first meeting, I honestly thought their story would be more of an explosive one, but it turned into more of a slow burn, mostly due to Eban’s fairly concrete desire to always do the right thing, especially where she’s concerned. Sometimes it takes something big happening in our lives before we realize who is most important, which is precisely what it takes for these two to move beyond the self-imposed barrier of the friends only label on their relationship.
Now, as far as the suspense, I never quite figured out all of the pieces of the puzzle until the author put them into place for me. In my opinion, that’s the best thing about a well-written romantic suspense book. If I can figure it all out long before the story’s arc and conclusion, I’m bored and disappointed. I was not bored or disappointed. There’s a reason Toni Anderson is near the top of my favorite romantic suspense authors list. I know when I dive headfirst into one of her books, it’s going to suck me in and keep me engaged to the point where I let everything else go until I’ve reached The End. And Cold As Ice did just that.
NICUnurse’s Rating: 5 out of 5 propellers!

She is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, RITA® finalist, science nerd, professional tourist, dog lover, gardener, mom.

Originally from a small town in Shropshire, England, Toni studied Marine Biology at University of Liverpool (B.Sc.) and University of St. Andrews (Ph.D.) with the intention she’d never be far from the ocean. Well, that plan backfired and she ended up in the Canadian prairies with her biology professor husband, two kids, a rescue dog, and a laid-back leopard gecko.
Toni started writing while pregnant with her first child and never stopped. Her greatest achievements are mastering the Tokyo subway, climbing Ben Lomond, snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef, and surviving fifteen Winnipeg winters (fingers crossed). She loves to travel for research purposes and was lucky enough to visit the Strategic Information and Operations Center inside FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C. in 2016. She also got to shove another (police) car off the road during pursuit training at the Writer’s Police Academy. Basically she has way too much fun!
