Sprinkling her captivating suspense novels with generous doses of romance, New York Times bestselling author Carla Neggers takes her fans’ breath away.

The small town of Black Falls, Vermont, 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.

    " Maybe if I had read the first book in the series I would have enjoyed this more but it was very hard to enjoy just starting with this book. "

    " This is the third and final in the Black Falls series. I have read other Carla Negger's books and was prepared for the reserve of the characters, but it seems extreme in this novel. Being the third in a series and being the first one I've read in the series, I expected some difficulty in connecting to the story and the characters, but Cold Dawn had so many characters and so many storylines that it was doubly difficult. Rose is a search and rescue volunteer and dog trainer. She is the youngest and has 3 older protective brothers. The main story centers around the search for a serial arsonist who has killed friends in their town of Black Falls, Vermont. Nick comes to Vermont ostensibly to follow up on the arson case but also to follow up with Rose. They had one encounter about 8 months previously when they were both vulnerable. Once there, more dead bodies start turning up and the heat is on to find the killer. And the heat is on between Rose and Nick. Or not so much. It's sort of a cool walk. The whole book actually has a cool feel to it. It's interesting but not doesn't grab you. Though I will definitely go back and read the others in the series. "

    " Enjoyed it and easy to keep track of characters - as this is my car/purse book, this is important. Suspense, adventure and a fast read. However, should have saved this book for summer - didn't need the realistic discriptions of a cold VT winter - not with this winter. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gevera Bert | 1/23/2014

    " I didn't read the first two books of this series and consequently was lost reading this book; the plot depended heavily on events & relationships I can only assume happened in the other books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina Long | 1/13/2014

    " I didn't realize this was the last book in a series when I began reading it. There are a lot of characters to keep track of with backstories that must've been fleshed out in the previous books. I enjoyed the story, but there were just too many subplots to keep up with. Good book, but not enough to motivate me to read the others in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susie | 1/7/2014

    " It was good, however, I'm sure it would have been better if I would have read the two books before it in the series. I've always liked the author's books that I've read but I don't think this was up to par with the previous books of hers that I have read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Colleen | 12/10/2013

    " I love all the characters but there are just to many in this book for me to keep up with. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey | 11/3/2013

    " Good book but felt a bit disjointed..there seemed to be a lot of characters to keep track of too. maybe I should've started the series from the beginning. Overall it was a pretty good book though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Starket | 10/18/2013

    " This was a little confusing because I apparently missed one of the books in the series. My recommendation is to read the books in ordcer. That will make the story easier for any reader to follow. Otherwise you are left very confused with the characters and plot that ties all 4 of the books together. "

    " Mistakenly picked this up and realized I don't like this series. Just like the book before it, there are way too many people and really is confusing to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 5/6/2013

    " Another of Carla Neggers' great murder mysteries involving her growing group of FBI, Secret Service, forest service professionals situated in Vermont. Lots of action, romance and complicated characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joy | 3/10/2013

    " Read this without having read the other books in the series, and was occasionally bewildered by references to earlier events. Clearly this is a series that should be have been read in order! Neggers evokes the rural Vermont setting well, but aside from that, this is pretty generic romantic suspense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 2/21/2013

    " didn't read the others in the series, maybe that's the disconnect between my rating and that of the others. I thought it was a pretty mediocre thriller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 11/25/2012

    " My least favorite of the Black Falls trilogy, by far. There wasn't a lot of action, and it seemed to be more about thrown together closures to loose ends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Kasper hagerty | 11/7/2012

    " I enjoy her series books very much. My only complaint is they should release them closer together. "
