So many talented authors, so little reading time! Amanda Cowley is another author I have been introduced to and this book, Cold Hard Truth is a very well written, gripping thriller with a large dose of romance thrown in.
I usually avoid romance but sometimes you have to take the rough with the smooth and this is one of those books. It is an unusual story with a total curve ball ending. At several points during the book I thought I had worked out the unsub only to change my mind a bit further into the book. Full of suspense with several issues examined this is a book I am glad I read.
Emily is traumatised after arriving home to find her father had been murdered and being left with many debts and a lack of money she travels to the other side of the world to live with her estranged mother and half sister. Her nightmares and problems travel with her as she struggles to cope with her new life and her attraction to her boss.
The characters are developed slowly and effectively throughout the book and I feel I really know the characters and the area. The book ends with a real shocker but it is all rounded up very well with no unanswered questions.
A very good read that will appeal to readers of thrillers, romance and choc lit.
I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
