  1. Clear writing but at YA level Characters did not develop, but every man in town was in love with the protagonist.


  2. This story dragged a lot, mostly due to excessive details in filler For example When the MC sat down to play the piano, it goes on and on about the pieces she chose to play A schoolteacher might enjoy all the details the author included about mundane things involved in the MC s occupation I did not A little editing there would have greatly helped the flow of the story I found it annoying that she kept referring to the car by its make never said, She got in her car, or started the car It read lik [...]


  3. Mandy is completely out of her element from the moment she steps into the North Cascade School District Not only does she get a very cold reception from the locals but also from her new staff, including her assistant, Grange Timberlain She doesn t know why he didn t get the proper license so he could retain the position as Superintendent, but it s not her fault that he s been demoted.Mandy tries really hard to fit in and make the right decisions but it s hard to do when others tell her to just a [...]


  4. Kindle freebie.I thought there was a lot of potential here, but I was disappointed by the end of the book The characters felt two dimensional, with people falling in love very quickly for no apparent reasons, the MC responding inconsistently to several attempts on her life she s going to leave the district to be safe, oh, wait, of course she s not going to leave, she s busy at work, etc , a villain who was clearly not acting in the MC s best interest from quite early in the book, etc.The romance [...]

  6. Great book It was great to read a book set in the Pacific Northwest.I was surprised to find that I could not figure out the bad guy right away.I will tell all my friends about Liz Adair and her great book.I was given this b for free in exchange fore an honest review.


  7. Interesting novel of a new to town superintendent and trouble brewing in a tight knit community Twists and turns abound, as well as a dip in the cold river recommend this.


  8. I can t understand anyone giving five stars The characters were shallow, ridiculous, unbelievable The writing dragged on, and I kept on reading hoping something would happen, but when it did it lacked the tension of the usual suspense novel Also, how on earth can you have romantic involvements with so many at one time like that That part seemed really flippant.


  9. Living in a small town was awesome The characters in this book reminds me of people I knew I love when a community comes together and celebrate Miss it Very close to learning about the thoughts of people who have a network connection Loved it.

  17. Very excitingLeaves you wanting to know what happened next Hard to put down Could have read in one day if I had the time.

  21. Sometimes I wonder where my brain is It wasn t until I sat down to write this review that I realized how the title Cold River reflects the subject of the book I swear I am blonde sometimes.The jest of the story line in Cold River is a gutsy gal takes a job as a superintendent of schools in the small town in the upper mid west of the US She has never lived in such a small town and so when she ends up renting a house right on the river, the river and its surrounding landscapes are a comfort to her [...]


  22. If brains was lard, he couldn t grease up a good size skillet, bless his heart Reading Cold River made my week.Leesie asked Say, can you help me here Define paradigm It took Mandy a moment to shift gears Paradigm It s a framework, or model, that is accepted and that everyone works and even thinks within Leesie furrowed her brow So a paradigm shift would be You know when you hear people talk about thinking outside the box Maybe that s what it means seeing the world in a whole different way When [...]

  25. COLD RIVER by Liz Adair I ve always enjoyed Liz s book and this one was no exception Mandy is a spunky main character that you fall in love with in the very beginning I can t say I agree with everything she does throughout the book, but when do we ever agree with everything anyone does The secondary characters were just as fun and helped pull the story forward My one big beef with this one was how long it took to get to the death threats Overall, it s a very enjoyable read for anyone Here s an i [...]

  27. Cold River introduces us to Dr Megan Steenburg who has taken a job in a small town with a few secrets She tries to fit in and do her job, but harmless pranks against her soon turn deadly and Megan can t figure out who is trying to kill her I couldn t either and was very surprised when the villain was revealed The thing I liked best about this story is that is was such a slow burn with the mystery and the romance It all starts out so innocently, but the warmer we get to figuring things out, the h [...]


  28. The opening pages of Cold River hooked me right away The setting is a cold, dark, and rainy night and Mandy, the main character, is forced to sleep at her office where she spends a fitful night full of creepy noises and unexpected visitors The vivid description gave me chills It was both subtle and eerie and kept me reading right from the start I liked the pace of this story It started out strong by setting the scene and then gradually building up the suspense and romance as the story progressed [...]

  30. I m so happy to be a part of Tristi Pinkston s blog tour for Cold River I always find some great books through blog tours.I thought Mandy was a very likable character She is greeted with lots of hostility and misunderstanding yet manages to keep her chin up Her determination to change what she views as sub standard is met with open opposition Small, tight knit communities are like that I should know, I live in one Changes are slow in coming and most people don t like them Mandy goes around offen [...]
