As the tiny town of Folly-on-Weir braces for a chilling winter and snow blankets Britain's Cotswold Hills, a killer faces a deadline. A terrible crime was believed to be safely hidden, but time and conscience can wear on a secret.

The clock ticks and with the police breathing down her neck, Alex knows she's at the top of the suspect list. Desperate to clear her name and find the real murderer she begins to peel back the layers of deception that have long-concealed one of the town's darkest secrets. But time is also running out for a killer who has nothing left to lose. What's one more murder?

Someone intends that Alex will be the next snow-covered body found in the beautiful hills above the town.

    Cold is a hot surprise!
    Stella Cameron has dipped her toe into the mystery genre and made a big splash. She introduces the reader to Alex Duggins her reluctant heronine by having her stuble onto a dead body. From there the story weaves us through how Alex returned to her hometown after a divorce that left her with many self doubts but is determined to start her life over. As you follow the crumbs left as clues you will think that you have it all figured out but more then likely do not see the end coming.
    This is a great story to bring you into Camerons fold if you have not read her before and if you have it will remind you why you enjoy reading her work.

    On an icy early morning Alex Duggins stumbles over a frozen corpse on her way to work. A shocking start to a gripping story that will have Alex, with animal vet Tony Harrison and Det. Inspector Dan O'Reilly, racing to catch a killer before he can murder again.

    Ms. Cameron is an accomplished mystery writer and she made me feel at home in an English setting that is very real. Scary and compulsively readable, COLD has made me want the next story in the series as soon as possible--now would be good.

    From the moment I started reading this book I could not put it down. Stella Cameron has written a mystery thriller set in a small English town covered in snow and ice. The murders are as cold as the title. Characters are well-developed and you will root for the heroine, Alex. I hope Cameron turns this into a series as I would love to read more.

    Cold by Stella Cameron introduces Alex Duggins (aka Alex Bailey-

    Cold by Stella Cameron introduces Alex Duggins (aka Alex Bailey-Jones) as she deals with a series of horrific events taking place in the normally peaceful and picturesque village of Folly-on-Weir. A grim discovery embroils Alex in a murder investigation that threatens the peace of mind that she has sought to regain after her personal tragedy yet it also forces her to interact with others, among them a personable veterinarian named Tony Harrison and a couple of delightful canines. As events continue to intensify, Alex discovers that there is a chilling purpose to all of the villain’s actions, and she seems to be the focus of that person’s attentions. Will the investigators Detective Inspector O’Reilly and Detective Sergeant Lamb be able to get past the insular villagers’ distrust in time to solve the case? Or will Alex have to take matters into her own hands?

    This entertaining mystery evokes the charm of a small village in the Cotswolds yet cloaks it in the chilling aura that this author creates so well. The action nicely escalates yet is tempered by the vignettes that feature the four-footed companions of various characters. It would be nice to have a bit more depth to the main characters but I suspect that the gradual exposition of their pasts will take place over the course of several novels in the series. There are plenty of fascinating secondary characters who provide great color and background to the story and the snippets of information revealed such as the artistry that goes into creating lace are enlightening both in terms of the mystery itself and as a way of detailing some of the fascinating resources that can be found in these quiet villages. An enjoyable light read that will make one grateful for a way to warm blanket to snuggle into.

    This novel was a shocker right from the 1st paragraph.  Cameron

    This novel was a shocker right from the 1st paragraph.  Cameron took off running and the suspense didn’t let up right until the very end.  I found myself always guessing until I came to the ‘I didn’t see that coming’ ending.  Cameron has definitely mastered the mystery/suspense genre, keeping her story fast paced without having to resort to mass amounts of death, dismemberment, and explosions to keep the attention of her audience.

    Through her vivid and uniquely developed writing style Cameron is able to bring her world to life in the most natural way.  Her understated descriptions bring a calm and natural air to this community amidst a time of crisis.  As a reader you are able to experience this world in an all-encompassing way through the eyes of the various characters.  

    Cameron has created some very captivating and insightful characters for this novel.  Both the main characters and the supporting cast are extremely well developed.  They all play counterpoint to each other to create an entire community, rather than a one sided cast.  

    All in all this was a very unique murder mystery/suspense novel that kept me captivated and guessing right till the last page.  

    Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    I love a good mystery that till the last chapter I still could



    I love a good mystery that till the last chapter I still couldnt figure out the plot! Wonderfully written, the scenes and descriptons of Folly on Weir and the whole area makes we want to pack and move! All but the snow, I hate the COLD. I want to visit the pub and play darts and sit around chatting. This was an action packed story that had me second guessing everyone and everything. I highly recommend this story

    Stella Cameron’s new book COLD is awesome. 

    This new Alex Duggins mystery is filled with a cast of fantastic characters whose hidden
    secrets hold the key to solving a chilling tale of murder. I was riveted by the story while
    vividly being transported directly into the town of Folly-on-Weir. 

    Stella Cameron's distinctive touch brings this story to life so realistically that I couldn't
    wait to see what happened next. And Bogie, well he melted my heart. He’s simply adorable.
    Miss Cameron has achieved a new demention in her writing with COLD and I am looking
    forward to the next book in the series.

    Readers you don’t want to miss this book!
