Award-winner author Liz Adair makes worlds collide in her newest suspense release, "Cold River." When young, fast-tracking school superintendent Mandy Steenberg flees big city Phoenix for Limestone, Washington, she finds herself homeless, unwelcome, and in danger. Adair's master storytelling drives this complex mystery about a school district with more secrets than Harper Valley. Her knowledge of the region and its culture imbues the book with charm and crisp dialogue, but it's "Cold River's" eclectic cast of complex characters that makes this a standout read that leaves you hanging until the delicious end. --Laurie Lewis, author of "Awakening Avery"
As this romance unfolds, the characters and events pick up speed, much like the river's current, until they are thrust together and pushed into a logjam of their own making. Between the growing tension and the evocative descriptions of nature, the reader will come away with a new appreciation for this unusual corner of the Great Northwest. --Tanya Mills, Indie Book Award winner, the Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Award winner, and a Whitney Award finalist
