About this ebook

With Cold Blooded, the talented Toni Anderson has penned yet another nail-biter. From beginning to end, the pages sizzle with thrilling suspense and romantic tension.” —Melinda Leigh, Wall Street Journal bestselling author.

A journalist searching for the truth about her best friend’s death—and the FBI agent who needs her to stop.

Disgraced investigative journalist Pip West is devastated when she discovers her best friend’s body face-down in a tranquil lake. When cops and federal agents determine that her friend overdosed then drowned, Pip knows they’re mistaken and intends to prove it.

Special Agent Hunt Kincaid doesn’t trust journalists and has no patience for Pip’s delusions, especially since her actions could expose why the FBI is so interested in her friend’s final days. The dead scientist worked at the cutting edge of vaccine research and may have a connection to a new, weaponized, vaccine-resistant anthrax strain that just hit the blackmarket.

The more Pip digs, the closer she gets to both the intriguing FBI agent, and to a bioweapons terrorist who’s more than willing to cold-bloodedly sacrifice anyone who gets in his way.

All the books can be read as standalone titles. Thrilling plots with guaranteed happily ever afters—they do contain strong language. For fans of Kendra Elliot, Janie Crouch, Anna Hackett, and Brittney Sahin.

Anderson continues to shine with Cold Blooded, the latest in the Cold Justice Series. Smart and well researched writing, with twists and turns that keep the reader engaged makes this one to recommend to a friend. The characters are genuine and dynamic. I thoroughly enjoyed this trope and the hot topic subject. Agent Hunt Kincaid doesn't trust journalists and that includes recently outcast investigative reporter, Pip West. But when her best friend is found dead, she will do whatever it takes to prove it was not suicide, including getting involved in Agent Hunt's case. He will do whatever it takes to keep her on the outside of the true reason for his involvement in this investigation. I highly recommend this novel to fans of the contemporary romantic suspense genre. I voluntarily read and reviewed a complementary copy of this book.

Cold Blooded is another winner from Toni Anderson. Keeping me up well into the night reading about Pip and Hunt and their search for the anthrax dealers. I really felt the emotions that Pip felt when, finding her best friend dead in the lake by her house. It enjoyable to watch the love hate relationship with Hunt and Pip their connection they fought all through the book. As always I was compelled to read this enthralling book in one go, leaving me very tired the next day. Trying to write this without spoilers is difficult, but I was very upset with Toni about the fate of one of the agents. This is a great series and we were introduced to some new characters in this slice of Cold Justice. If you are new to the series, this works well as a standalone as we have the complete story. I can’t recommend this series enough, and have been trying to catch up with the earlier books by listening to some on Audiobook. Okay enough rambling from me I loved this book as it has everything I love, excitement, intrigue, and mystery and even love what else can you asked for? Thank you Toni Anderson.

Pip West, an investigative journalist, is running away from trouble; only to run into worse trouble involving the loss of her BF. To complicate the situation no one believes her assertions surrounding her BF’s death, including SA Hunt Kincaid. Hunt has good reason not to trust journalists, which only confounds his feelings about Pip and her involvement in the federal case he is investigating. While they both are searching for the truth for their own reasons, they find their feelings for each other deepening. Facing personal bodily harm and the potential threat of weaponized anthrax on the black market, Pip and Hunt find themselves not only fighting against a real menace but also against their personal feelings for each other. This is an intense, compelling, and suspenseful romance. The character development is solid, effortlessly drawing the reader into the lives of the characters. There’s intrigue, emotions, heartache and romance. The narrative will keep you on the edge of your seat while trying to figure out who the bad guys really are. Once you start reading, you will find it hard to put down. I highly recommend this book! It works well as a standalone, even if you have not read the previous stories in the series. I am voluntarily providing an honest, unbiased review of an ARC of this book.
