Cold Fury, book three in Susan Sleeman’s Cold Harbor series, follows forensic anthropologist Maggie Turner and Blackwell Security Specialist Jackson Lockhart as they attempt to find a murderer before he kills the only witness to his crimes.
When Maggie unwittingly bumps into a murderer, an action captured in video, Jackson recognizes he must protect the woman he use to love. Perhaps still loves. If only their lives hadn’t been torn apart so many years ago by a tragic accident.
Maggie realizes she needs protection, but hesitates as the flood of emotions at seeing Jackson again nearly overwhelms her. They’d sworn never to see each other again, yet here he was to keep her safe.
During each twist and turn of the investigation, Jackson and Maggie battle their feelings for each other and their feelings about the past. Will they be able to overcome their hurdles or will the murderer keep them apart forever.
I always enjoy Susan Sleeman’s books and Cold Fury kept me reading until the end. Though, unusually, the late middle lagged as Maggie and Jackson thought they caught the bad guy, but still couldn’t resolve their personal dilemma.
At times emotional due to Maggie and Jackson’s loss and other times funny because of the banter between the team members, I love revisiting the Blackwell team and their various adventures. Hoping you do, too.
