Book Review - "Cold River" by Liz Adair

Mandy Steenburg thinks her doctorate in education has prepared her to run any school district - until she tangles with the moonshine-making, coon-dog-owning denizens of a tiny district in Pacific Northwest timber country. She's determined to make a difference, but the local populace still looks to the former superintendent for leadership. When Mandy lands in the middle of an old feud and someone keeps trying to kill her, instinct tells her to run. And though she has to literally swim through perilous waters, she finds a reason to stay and chance the odds.

My Review:
Why did Mandy leave her last job and take one where her welcome is far less than enthusiastic? Who is trying to drive her away, and why? Will she follow her heart to a new romance, or return to the one she left behind? These questions will keep you devouring the pages until the dramatic conclusion.

I really enjoyed this book. Liz has created a town with interesting characters. I wasn't able to see any of the plot twists coming. If you enjoy romances, books filled with action, or an engrossing novel, this is the book for you.

It also makes a great Christmas gift!
