Book synopsis: Lost in the frozen woods of New Hampshire, Penelope Chestnut discovers the wreckage of a small plane. An aviator herself, she sees clues to a conspiracy in the rusted-out remains. Rumors of her discovery bring Wyatt Sinclair to Cold Spring, determined to put to rest a family scandal and learn what really happened to his legendary uncle, who had disappeared with his adventuress lover years earlier. As Wyatt and Penelope investigate, old motives are uncovered and new ones created, including a growing attraction between the pair. But when an unknown enemy emerges with a violence rooted in desperation, uncovering the truth will be far less problematic than surviving it.
Mystery, intrigue, tension, secrets, surprising plots twists - Carla Neggers sure knows how to write them. I discovered Carla a year or so ago, when I came across The Black Falls Series and read the first two books: Cold Moon and Cold Pursuit. About to start reading Cold Dawn. She does a great job of world building and creating suspense, keeping you hooked and getting you invested in the story. Her latest "The Whisperer" was just released in paperback June 28th and is set partially in Ireland so of course I have to read it. Who can pass up a good suspense novel based in Ireland. The setting along makes it all the more worth while.
