Two sisters who have never met are bound together by secrets, lies, and murder in this page-turning novel of love and suspense
Frantic to escape her paranoid, violent husband—a powerful New Orleans senator—Holly Ames takes her young son and flees into the dead of night. Four weeks later, prosecutor-turned-defense-attorney Meredith Rawson’s dying mother makes a shocking confession.
Now Meredith is on a journey to fulfill her mother’s last wish: That she find the half sister she never knew. Before she can begin her search, her home is ransacked and her life threatened . . . but help arrives from an unexpected source.
Haunted by his dark past, all New Orleans PD homicide detective Gage Gaynor wants is to put predators away and clean up a city riddled with crime. The hunt for a killer will bring him to Meredith’s door.
Told from the points of view of Meredith, Gage, and Holly, Cold Target takes readers into a world of power, privilege, and passion . . . where the ties that bind can be the most lethal of all.
Fantastic romantic suspense, with two stories in tandem, twisted in each others destiny. The story is so addictive I had a hard time putting it down. The crimes, murders, and 'accidents' are piling up. They all seem to be connected to Meredith's quest for finding her half sister. Gage, the former adversary, is now the only one she can trust. While trying to find the mysterious sister, staying alive, and find solutions for the many mysteries around them, they get to know each other, their feelings for each other grow, and the always present attraction gets a permanent hold of them.
Holly is on a run for her, and her son's, life. In a situation where she has to hide from everyone, live with stolen identity, the last person she should fall for, is the sheriff of the new home town. But the sheriff is the most patient, tender, and tolerant person. He takes his time to get to know Holly and Harry, wins their trust, and protects them from anything that will harm them.
The fear, threat, and danger are constantly present in the story. It is engaging and captivating tale, where the mystery, suspense, and action is perfectly mixed with the budding romances. The sisters' lives are in peril, as well as everyone close to them, or helping them out. The political powers are doing all in their might, to keep the old secrets hidden. Surprising twists and turns moves the well written story on high speed, with an unexpected, yet satisfying ending
