Editorial Reviews


Cold Tears is wonderful!
I absolutely love this author's world building (both this book and the first one Bonne Femme). I also love the plot building.
The characters are all well written, with realistic dialogue, along with realistic flaws. There's nothing I hate more than characters lacking flaws. I also loved the internal turmoil of both Richard and Jill. The small town was written beautifully, making me feel like I was there
All in all, I loved the story line, characters, and the setting.
                                                                             --Lived One Thousand Lives

"I was hooked after the first couple of pages!"
"The book is well written, the characters are interesting and the dialogue very believable."

From the Author

This second book was written after the third novel, Canaan Camp, a serial killer story reminiscent of Bonne Femme. In Canaan Camp I moved Richard and Jill to the rural Ozarks, the land and culture of my life-long home. I did this to be as realistic as possible with dialog, culture, and physical setting. The move, however, was too abrupt. Furthermore, I needed a break from the serial killer genre. The result was Cold Tears, a pure mystery with a suspenseful ending.

(Series Notes: Cold Tears takes place in southwest Missouri, but brings the Carters to Hawthorn County where we are introduced to one of the main characters in the rest of the novels, Sheriff Shug Shively. These stories are a series of chronologically ordered "stand-alone" tales of mystery and suspense played out against the evolving life partnership of Jill and Richard Carter. Although not necessary, a better appreciation of the stories might be obtained by reading them in order.)
I hope that after reading this poignant story of a mother with a missing child, you join me for the whole ride.
--AR Simmons
