Cold Dawn by Carla Neggers is the third book in the “Black Falls” romantic suspense series. Publisher: Mira (Harlequin), October 2010


It’s a new day in Black Falls. The small Vermont town finally feels safe again—until search-and-rescue expert Rose Cameron discovers a body, burnt almost beyond recognition. Almost. Rose is certain that she knows the victim’s identity…and that his death was no accident.

Nick Martini also suspects an arsonist’s deliberate hand. Another fire killed an arson investigator in California months ago. Now the rugged smoke jumper is determined to follow the killer’s trail…even if it leads straight to Rose. Nick and Rose haven’t seen each other since they shared a single night of blind passion, but they can’t let memories and unhealed wounds get in the way of their common goal—stopping a merciless killer from taking aim straight at the heart of Black Falls.

Another fire has claimed a life and Rose is in the middle. Secrets will come out, especially one most remembered. Nick, on the trail of an arsonist, comes for the one he loves. This heart-stopping mystery and romance kept me turning the pages. I also enjoyed the updates on all the characters from the previous books in this series. This was a good read and look forward to more romantic suspense stories by the author. My rating: 4 stars
