By far the best I have ever read. Please keep writing. I'm sure you get tired of writing but your books are so wonderful. I own and have reread all of your books many times. Thank you for the fun.

One of the best mystery and suspense novels that I've read in a long time. Very well written from start to finish. This was a page turner and kept you riveted right up to the last word.

This was such an unusual mystery/thriller. But by the end of "Cold Cold Heart", the book became so great that I'm happy that I believed in Tami Hoag's prowess as an excellent writer and plowed through. "Cold, Cold Heart" had an unexpected slow start. Now, don't get me wrong, in this case that's not a bad thing. I found it quite refreshing to not know exactly where this mystery was going for several well written chapters. The book opens with the reader meeting Dana Nolen, a kidnap victim of a serial killer named Doc Holiday. She becomes the only victim of this vicious killer who lived. Dana isn't the same person now though. After surviving torture and struggling through rehab, she still has little memory of the ordeal that changed her life forever.  Tami Hoag's book spends about half of it's pages teaching us about Dana's new life and what it means to be a victim of a serial killer. We learn of the lasting scars, both psychological and physical and what it's like to have PTSD. Throughout this interesting meandering through Dana's new life we also learn about her past life and the people who she grew up with. In that learning the reader discovers that there is in fact a mystery to be had after all. When Dana was younger her best friend disappeared and was never heard from again. Could she have been one of the first victims of Doc Holiday? Could there be such a cruel coincidence? What happened to Dana's bestie? Now that we're invested in Dana's life, this mystery pulls us hard into wanting to know what happened, if only to help Dana heal from the trauma of wondering if her own torturer also killed her best friend. I absolutely loved the way Ms. Hoag wrote this thriller. It was so refreshing for an author to find a new and unique way of leading the reader into the mystery.  You get to love the main character first. You care about her and want her to be ok, all before the main mystery pulls you into it's spiderweb of twists and turns. This is a five out of five star book and so well worth the read. I hadn't read Tami Hoag for a few years and now I'm going to go back and fill in my reading with the books I've missed. If this book is any indication of what I've missed, I'll have a plethora of mysteries to fill my spring and summer reading. Tami Hoag's "Cold, Cold Heart" is being released January 13, 2015 so let this terrific mystery keep you warm on those cold January nights.

Enjoyed the book but felt like she really left us hanging in a few points....hoping for a 2nd book with this character to clear up what happened to her dad and the dog!

I used to read Tami Hoag, and have always liked her books, but I think this most recent was very poorly written. The plot is predictable, and the main character is annoying and not very likeable. We get that she has been traumatized, but her behavior, after the fact, seems to be the main focus of the book. I was EXTREMELY disappointed in this latest by Tami Hoag!

One reads about serial killers with very little information following about their victims.  Tami Hoag breaches that impenetrable wall of silence with this novel.  It’s initially about Dana Nolan, a young woman who was professionally successful as a TV newscaster, a career eagerly followed by man, a woman admired for her numerous skilled deliveries of news of all levels of intensity and importance.  Now she’s the broken visage of news as the result of a horrific experience of abduction, cutting, burning, other torture and rape.  Her serial killer attacker was known as Dr. Holiday and he called her “My Masterpiece” before she moved beyond her broken state to muster up enough strength to end his killing spree. Post-traumatic stress syndrome never looked so vicious and mind-numbingly intensely painful as it does for Tami.  Not only is she oh so slowly learning to cope with the few memories and feelings that emerge over time but she also has to deal with well-intentioned family and friends who now define her as the serial “victim.”  Dana immediately displays that feisty personality that was a hallmark of her life before this vicious nightmare began. She fights back as she slowly recovers enough to begin to nominally function. Little by little a memory in particular from before her demise emerges.  It concerns a friend of hers who disappeared and was murdered.  It so becomes her focus that she decides to resurrect her reportorial skills and seek out answers that have haunted her for so long and have been exacerbated by her own experience. This quest is to provide a healing factor in her life, although she knows she will be scarred by her own past forever.  Empathy indeed can be a miraculous, soul-saving exercise. While the beginning of this crime novel is initially disconcerting, it is well worth the read.  Cold Cold Heart is a riveting, psychological, crime-solving novel that shows Tami Hoag’s skills at their best.  This is a winner for all true fans of crime and thriller fiction!

My first read by Tami Hoag, & it won't be my last! After seeing this Nook book made #7 on a best sellers list in Feb 2015, I decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. Tami keeps you hooked and turning the pages (virtually, of course, if you're on an e-reader). Loved it, gave an insight into two PTSD individuals, & also a mystery that I didn't figure out 'till the very ending. Great read and worth the $$. Good thing I'm a partially retired RN now, because I was up until after 1 am with this read!!

Not as long as the ones she's written in the past but worth reading. I would give it 3 and 1/2 stars.
