Cold Case,Hot Accomplice was a light romantic read with some good old-fashioned mystery tossed in. I do like a book that is told in both the male and female POVs, so that was a plus. The characters were likable, the backdrop was quaint, and the mystery had me guessing until the end. The chemistry between Steve and Roxy was restrained given that neither were looking for love.The story kept a steady pace which i very much enjoyed.There seemed to be quite a bit of story and character development that took up a good third of the book. But once the story was fully on its way, it was a book I did not want to put down and the ending was a  surprise...   Strong characters and non-stop action keep you turning the pages on Carla Cassidy's newest Romantic Suspense. Our heroine has more than one reason to be looking over her shoulder and thinking about her protector makes her feel much more than safe. To have his help is she willing to risk her heart?  Loved reading this story and watching a woman finding her strength and her hope for a "happy ever after".

A great book Contemporary, Wolf Creek, Pennsylvania Roxy Marcoli has three things that matter to her in life, her restaurant, her aunt, Liz and her sisters. When Liz disappears Roxy ends up turning to Steve Kincaid, a cop with a playboy reputation. A man that tries to charm Roxy but gets her hackles up every time instead. Steve Kincaid isn’t anything like the ladies man reputation that he has. His flirting covers up a loss that is unbearable. As Roxy and Steve search for clues to what has happened to Liz, Steve gets to see what really lies beneath Roxy’s sharp tongue and prickly attitude. The more Steve gets to know the more he wants Roxy. As his desire grows so does the fear Steve now has because it seems Aunt Liz isn’t the only one a killer wants, they are now after Roxy. This story proves to be a great romantic suspense with twists and turns that are sure to keep the reader guessing as to who is behind what is happening. Just as the reader thinks they have it figured out another twist comes along that will have the reader second guessing themselves. The ending is great and this book proves to be very hard to put down. This story has a couple of plots going that make it that much more intriguing and sure to grab the reader’s attention. This one is definitely worth taking the time to check out and read.

4 Stars Cold Case, Hot Accomplice I was left with some questions that I would like to bring up but it would give up too many secrets. The suspense was good. It keeps you guessing about where the missing are. Who took whom? Who was after Roxy? You don't know who to trust. I like the characters. Roxy is the oldest of three girls. She feels she has to be the one to hold it together for her sisters. She is feisty. Knows what she wants and goes for her dream. She opened her own restraint the dollhouse. She never plans on getting married. Three of her customers come in first thing three days of the week are detectives. Steve always flirts with her. When Liz her Aunt is a half hour late delivering her bake goods and doesn't answer her phone she sends her sister over their. Liz is not their but the bake goods are ready, her car is there, and her purse is there. They tell her that till she is missing 24 hours they can't do anything. Steve does go over to see and look around. Steve has his own missing case that he has not solved. He hates missing cases. He starts working the case and their are a lot of police working the case. When someone comes after Roxy to they don't know if it is same one who took her Aunt Liz. I can't wait for the next book to come out and answer my questions that I still have. There are a couple of sex scenes in the book. Their is also some Amish characters in the story. I was given this ebook to read and in return asked to give honest review by NetGalley and Harlequin.

First, ARGH at the ending. But it's a good ARGH. Heh. I adored Roxy in this book. She's worked so hard to keep her sisters sheltered from their rather sucky mother, and been willing to protect them from all the muck and worries that she's dealt with as the oldest sister. She's a successful restaurateur and I love that while she can cook, she can't bake very well. Poor Steve, I can only imagine (and did) how much agony he must have been in to have had his son abducted and vanish for 2+ years because of his psycho ex-girlfriend. I liked how Ms. Cassidy portrayed him as still searching, but he'd also made an attempt to move on with his life to some degree even if he never gave up hope of finding his son. Some of the scenes where he was in the boy's bedroom were truly heart-wrenching. These two played off each other really well, and I liked the mystery that developed around Aunt Liz's disappearance. Roxy was a bit stubborn about not giving up the chase, and even wanting to start the chase before Liz had been gone more than a few hours. I can get how Steve was a bit skeptical in the beginning about an actual abduction and how he doubted much would be done...until he got himself sucked into the mystery, with a determination not to let Roxy feel the same unending worry/wonder about her vanished love one, the way he was. Roxy had a little growing up to do with her tunnel vision when it came to her mother and I was pleased to see she did actually do that in the end. These two truly deserved each other and I was glad when they got together finally. In short - read this book! Heh. Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
