Great plot, great characters, great story!
A well-written, excellent, emotional story for fans of suspense and romance. The backdrop of the Bosnian-Serbian conflict was unique and a refreshing change from the usual fare. Highly recommended and an author to watch!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

strong espionage romantic thriller
Simon managed to get most of his team of Excelsior Command operatives out of Bosnia alive with the exception of Violet and four other skilled people. Her death especially in the war ravaged nation haunts him like no other ever has. Besides losing a player, which by itself would drive him over the edge, he now realizes how much more Violet meant to him. --- One year later, office assistant Francis shows Simon several short stories and two novellas for him to read. To his shock, the stores written by a Claire de Beaupre describe top secret missions in which only he and Violet knew the details. He investigates wondering if somehow the woman he cherishes survived. Could Claire be Violet or is she someone who looks like his late beloved¿s twin? If the latter how could she know. He plans to find out, but soon realizes the author is in jeopardy as an unknown assailant wants Violet dead whether Claire is her or not. --- IN THE COLD is a strong espionage romantic thriller that stars a breathtaking hero and an intriguing female counterpart. Fans will have a Memorex moment as they will wonder is she or is she not. On top of the suspense there is also a delightful romantic subplot so that readers receive the complete package from Jeanie London. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?

Superb special- ops thriller/romance
One of the best books I have read all year, it is also the first one I have seen using the Bosnian-Serbian conflict as the basis for the plot. The effects of trauma on military torture survivors plays a major part in this romantic suspense thriller. The story of a trauma/torture survivor who is being hunted for assassination for political reasons, Claire tries to build a life in Canada with no memory of the past horrors she endured. Special Ops 'Team One' tries to protect her both physically and psychologically, but the threat is too great. She begins to suffer PTSD symptoms as her memory returns. The Director of Team One, Simon, feels intense guilt but has no idea how to help her emotionally. The author did an excellent job of combining the romantic element with the suspense plot, and it is one of the best novels I have read this year. Highly recommended!!Was this review helpful?
