Cold River - Book Review

Mandy Steenburg thinks her doctorate in education has prepared her to run any school district - until she tangles with the moonshine-making, coon-dog-owning denizens of a tiny district in Pacific Northwest timber country. She's determined to make a difference, but the local populace still looks to the former superintendent for leadership. When Mandy lands in the middle of an old feud and someone keeps trying to kill her, instinct tells her to run. And though she has to literally swim through perilous waters, she finds a reason to stay and chance the odds.
My review:
Liz Adair is a master at creating delightful and intriguing characters. I loved every character in the book and kept guessing and pondering on who was trying to kill Mandy and who she was going to fall in love with. The setting of this book is delightful, the town one that I would love to visit. Cold River is another well-written book by Liz Adair.
What I liked: Loved the people, the setting, and the author's voice.
What I didn't like: I wouldn't have touted the book as a suspense. The plot was definitely intriguing and well-done but from the publisher's description I was looking for more suspense.
Audience: I would recommend this book to everyone.
Where to buy Cold River: Amazon or Deseret Book.
Check back tomorrow, I'll be posting a giveaway of Cold River. What a fabulous Christmas present that would be!


  1. Hmmm I often find what the publisher says and what the book is are often completely different.

  2. I like the idea of a book with intriguing characters set in the Pacific Northwest (my son is currently serving a mission in Oregon). And a nice mystery is always a good touch! Yes, I'd love to win a copy of Cold River! I'll try to come back tomorrow to see how to enter :)

    Excellent review, Cami, you inspired my curiousity about the book. And all the best to Liz Adair on her new release!
