- Decent read3 star

Honestly better than I first anticipated. The characters keep it interesting however the end was almost predictable

- A Cold Dark Place5 star

Lots of twists and turns as Mallory finally discovers the truth about her kidnapped and assumed dead twin sister who had been missing for 25 years. Can Mallory, new FBI agent, find the serial killer who was responsible ? Her career choice was made with this possibility in mind. Mallory’s whole life is devoted to finding her sister and punishing whoever was responsible. No time for dating or letting anyone get close to her. Her focus was always on Payton since she was 5 years old. At least that was true until she met Alex Parker. She fell hard for him as he fell in love with her. He protects her as much as possible knowing his secretive life could send him to prison for life.

- Recommended5 star

Well written.

- Great book from a great author5 star

I am a big fan of really well written romantic suspense and Toni Anderson is one of the best authors writing today in this genre. Her books always include intricately created suspense, strong women and heroes with well rounded characters accompanying their muscles. There is just the right amount of jeopardy, sizzle and humour and every aspect is meticulously researched. I can’t recommend Toni Anderson’s books highly enough if you enjoy romantic suspense and we beautiful written yarn.

- Great story!5 star

Loved this book from beginning to end. It has everything I love in a good suspense romance story. I fell in love with Mallory and Alex from the start. I love how the story moved. The pace was perfect and the tension was just right. Always wondering who was on what side from beginning to end. The title is a perfect fit for the overall story. The romance between Alex and Mallory is hot, passionate and shows a deep bond between them beyond the physical. If you enjoy JD Robb or Sue Grafton then Toni Anderson is the perfect author for you!

- Great book5 star

I didn’t want this book to end. It was very captivating. Loved the whole thing!

- Kept me on the edge of my seat!!5 star

I enjoyed reading this book so much! For someone who has not picked up a leisurely book in months, I was able to finish this book in less than a week! A testament to how great of a book this was. I loved reading Alex and Mallory’s relationship. It is written tastefully and not like a cringe fairytale. At some points, my heart was racing, because of both the romance and the intense drama. It keeps you questioning the whole way through but leaves no loose ends in the end and is a satisfying read. I wish there were a few more chapters on Alex and Mallory’s life together, but I guess that is left for my imagination to conjure. I’m excited that this book has sparked me to read more books!

- A page-turner5 star

I downloaded this book on a whim because it was free, had good reviews, and I needed something to keep me entertained during quarantine. This book completely surprised me by how captivating it was! I wanted to read every second I could until I finished the book, and when I was done I felt sad that it was over. I will definitely be reading the other books in the series.

- Not the best...1 star

This book was poorly written...the plot wasn’t at all good, the main character Mallory barely has a personality besides crying about her dead sister and being hung up over a guy she’s physically attracted to...

- A Cold Dark Place5 star

This is a very good book if you like crime, suspense, and a little bit of romance. I’m not much of a reader these days but I was hooked and finished this book in less than a week. Definitely worth the read! I’m interested to continue the series!

- Intense5 star

Fantastic book! Couldn’t put it down. Fast paced enough to keep you interested and great character development.

- More than 5 stars!5 star

Could not put this book down from the minute I started it!

- Worth reading, No stringing on to buy another book5 star

I gave this book a five star review because I was very intrigued from start to finish. It’s a very interesting story and I found myself easily identifying with Mallory, the main character. I’ve read other books here from different Authors and found myself sorely disappointed by the way the books would just end, keep you in such suspense that if you wanted to know what happens next, you have to buy the next book. Not this one, I got all the answers and appreciated that very much. That in combination with what a wonderfully written story this is, actually has me preparing to buy the next book. Wonderful job! I’d definitely, highly recommend A Cold Dark Place!

- Exhilarating5 star

Was very hard to put down. It kept me on my toes. Very interesting and worth every page turn.

- A spine twinkling murder mystery5 star

This book has such a great story is is well written. You didn’t know who done it until the last chapter.

- Awesome read5 star

This is my first read by this author, I have to say “awesome”. This book kept me involved and wondering what would happen next. It is hard to define the line between bad and really evil. In this book the line blurred in many places but all worked out in the end. Really good story and I will definitely go back for another in this series.

- A Cold Dark Place5 star

Loved the book. Romance and murder mystery my kind of book. Didn’t figure out who was doing even though you do throw a lot of clues. Thank!

- Awesome5 star

A Cold Dark Place (Cold Justice Book 1) by Toni Anderson 5 +++ Stars Brand new author for me, and has already been added to the OMG must read everything available. I can't even put into words how much I loved this book. The character building, the flow, the storyline, the twists, the danger, the sitting on the edge of my seat moments...Everything was spot on for me. Every emotion...i felt every one and the ending *sigh*, I could just ramble on for days and I already loved this genre but now because of this author I believe it is probably my chosen genre...Don't get me wrong I love all the others too but I am a suspense fanatic and I love being a back seat crime solver. I will have everything this author writes on my kindle before it's over..I don't know how I've gone so long without reading her work but here I am and I can not wait!! Thank you Miss Anderson for an amazingly awesome story!! Loved It!!

- Murder...cold case...FBI4 star

An ex-CIA agent and FBI agent work together to help solve the serial killer cold case from eighteen years ago. Former CIA assassin Alex Parker is taking out serial killers and pedophiles. FBI Special Agent Mallory Rooney is a rookie detective tasked with tracing the killer, the anonymous caller, and the hitman. Overall: An abundance of characters to select from as suspects. I like Mallory’s determination and dedication to the task. I enjoyed her character. She was a strong, fierce, and courageous character. I liked the interesting twist of illustrating how the justice system failed many people’s lives, yet these two characters made it their mission to change the way people viewed the justice system. They became who they are because of the wrongdoings of the past and they were here to correct those wrongdoings by bringing hope back. I liked Alex’s character as he struggled with his conscience in determining whether killing was right or wrong. His battle with the moral and ethical code about taking the life of a human being was answered in a convincing manner. When the government gives orders to kill its just cause. When it’s a killer taking matters into their own hands it’s murder. Nothing is black and white when the government is involved with protecting citizens. There was a proper balance of work and play. The mixing business with pleasure was timed perfectly and fit nicely with the story.

- Good read4 star

Enjoyed the plot very much but could have done without the graphic sexual parts.

- A Cold Dark Place5 star

I swear I didn’t want to stop reading this book for anything. I really didn’t, except for things necessary in daily life. Lol. It was a great read...so much so that, by the time I was halfway through, I bought more of this series! Great read, very well written. Can’t wait to start the next book!

Excellent !

- A Cold Dark Place4 star

I don't like pregnancy, especially unexpected, used in a plot. It gives some women a romantically unrealistic expectation and never works out like it does in romance novels. Cut it out. It isn't needed for a good novel.

- Tense drama with soul4 star

This book is a worthwhile read. A heart rendering subject. You may want to volunteer for the Gateway Project. You may think that justice, though flawed, is paramount to our society. It makes you look at the people who work the system, the people with power. What did I take away..your never so lost that you can't find your way to happiness. It just might not be what you thought it would be.

- Mallory and Alex4 star

This book kept getting better. There is suspense, romance, plot twists, and great characters even if they are a little damaged. Mallory just wants to find out what happened to her twin sister, who was taken when she was nine. Alex is just trying to fulfil his commitment he made to get out of a foreign prison. Neither of these characters is looking for love but they can't resist the chemistry between them.
