    A reviewer

    Stella Cameron has done it again. Make sure you have a weekend set aside for this one. You won't want to do anything but read once you've started. COLD DAY IN HELL has some of Ms. Cameron's finest - and most interesting - characters to date. You'll be swept up in her finely detailed settings. You can practically smell the swamp and feel the heat.

    Broken Souls: Being Found

    Where we last left off--Josh looked around franticly, panic riseing in his throat by the second. He began panting lightly as he serched room after room. "You won't find her here," a voice said from behind. Josh whirled around and instently grew from fearful to angry. He clenched his jaw. "You..."<p> Where we are now-- Toxic chuckled and held out his arms. "That's right, Josh. It's me." His black mask covered half of his face as usual, but this time he was wearing a black cloak and pants. But that's not what scared Josh.<p> What scared him was the fact that a gun was in his hand. Toxic cocked it and aimed it at him. "You're going to come with me, and not say anything." He motioned toward the only door that was locked. (Josh had checked.) Toxic smiled and led Josh into the door after he unlocked it. And his fear reached its highest when darkness swallowed them both up.<p> As Josh's eyes ajusted, he noticed that there was a chair in what seemed to be the middle of the room. Ropes layed around the bottom of it. He suddenly felt the cold metal of the gun press againsit the back of his neck. "What?!" He herd Toxic growl. "How did she escape?!" He tightened his grip on Josh's shoulder when he flinched at his tone. "Sit in the chair. Now."<p> Josh obeyed without speaking and winced as Toxic tightly bound him to it with the ropes. He then got some ducktape and placed a peice over Josh's mouth, muttering to himself as he did. Just as he thought things couldn't get worse, Josh was blind folded with a thick cloth. <p>He felt the metal of the gun againsit the back of his head once more. "Listen up, boy. If Red trys to rescue you, don't say anything to her." He pressed the gun onto his head harder. "Unless you want the both of ya de<_>ad." Josh nodded at Toxin's threat and tryed to calm himself as he herd the door close shut in front of him. He was alone in the room now.<p> Part 5 at the next result.

    A Cold Day in Hell is Hot

    Stella Cameron returns to Pointe Judah in her latest venture into the Louisiana Bayou. From the first page when we see two teenage boys lost in the swamps until its satisfying Christmas Eve conclusion, _A Cold Day in Hell_ is worth the sleepless night you¿ll spend reading it. Eileen Moggeridge and Angel DeAngelo have warily approached a relationship with one another since they met. Eileen is scarred from an abusive marriage, while Angel is trying to forget his past as a CIA field operative and ATF agent. But both want more than the friendship they now share. Eileen¿s son, Aaron, and Angel¿s nephew, Sonny, are fast friends who lead each other into temptation. The boys are lost in the swamps in their search for the root doctor Chuzah when Aaron is shot by an unseen gunman. Chuzah rescues the boys and he heals Aaron¿s wound. Angel doesn¿t know if the shot was intended for Aaron or Sonny, the lone witness to a gruesome mob hit. But he knows there¿s more to Chuzah than the other man¿s unique lifestyle. Things become more complicated when Eileen¿s pregnant sister-in-law is attacked, a construction worker is murdered, and yet another attempt is made on Aaron¿s life. How are these crimes connected? When Eileen¿s ex-husband returns seeking reconciliation, Angel has the perfect suspect. But where is the evidence? Angel tries to keep a very independent Eileen safe, while also working to protect Sonny and Aaron. None of them make it easy for him, and he discovers the premonitions and visions he used so effectively in the CIA have returned, warning him of growing danger to the woman he loves. For her part, Eileen must learn that Angel is a man she can lean on, a man she can trust, before she can admit her love for him. Its colorful characters make Pointe Judah a town you want to return to, and the unfinished stories of a few of its characters make you hope for more of Cameron¿s Bayou books. The romance between Angel and Eileen is satisfying and believable and it¿s easy to imagine them creating a family with their two boys. This is definitely a Christmas Eileen and Angel, and the people of Point Judah, will remember.

    Very Enjoyable

    When her son Aaron is shot on the bayou just outside Point Judah, Louisiana, Eileen Moggeridge rushes to the hospital. Accompanying her is her friend Christian 'Angel' DeAngelo, whose nephew Sonny was with Aaron. Angel, a former CIA and ATF agent, wonders if Sonny was the intended target as the teen has been hidden by the Feds under the witness protection program.------------- Back in Point Judah to Eileen's disgust is her abusive former husband, Chuck, who insists he wants to make amends with his wife and former a father-son relationship with his child. Eileen does not trust Chuck as he was always a bully towards her and uncaring about having a son who he had nothing to with before. She even wonders if he was the sniper who shot Aaron besides which she prefers Angel even as more incidents happen to her.------------- This is a strange entertaining romantic suspense thriller starring a horde of eccentric characters none more odd than the ¿root doctor¿. The mystery is cleverly designed, but Stella Cameron used voodoo so that the villain is in plain sight yet not easy to identify. Although too many sidebars add unneeded mumbo jumbo, sub-genre readers will enjoy spending A COLD DAY IN HELL out on the bayou.------------ Harriet Klausner

    Great Read

    Stella Cameron is in her element down in the bayou. Edge of seat reading until the ending. What happened to Eileen's sister-in-law? Why did Chuzah leave jail if Lobo was on the job? It would have been interesting to know about the baby after the poor woman went through so much in the parking lot. Otherwise, we need another plot line with Chuzah and Lobo.
