Publisher's Summary

After she's dumped by her faithless fiancee, Claire Spencer abandons her dreams of a family of her own. Instead, she plots her solo course and settles for a quiet life as an independent Williamsburg shop owner. So how does she become a killer's target?
Sometime security consultant Riley, burned out, stung by his ex-wife, and haunted by a young girl he couldn't save, vows never to work with women again. But when a thug tries to kill Claire and she winds up in Riley's arms, his plans go all to hell. Knowing she's in danger, his protective instincts won't let him walk away.
Old letters in a hidden trunk reveal long-buried secrets, leading Claire and Riley to political connections with organized crime and Mob hitmen. While dodging a speeding car, ducking bullets, and escaping through murky swamp waters, conventional Claire and freewheeling Riley struggle against their powerful chemistry - if she's picket fences, he's barbed wire. Opposites do attract.

Thrilling story, gripping narration

What did you love best about Cold Comfort?

I love these kind of genre mashups, between thriller and romance. Both elements worked well here, and the author knows how to play all the necessary notes expertly.

Have you listened to any of April Grace Lowe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

April's narration is amazing. A lot of narrators just sound like they're reading a laundry list. Every moment of April's performance (and that's what it is - a PERFORMANCE) is infused with emotion and characterization. I will definitely seek out more of her books.

Thrilling and exciting...

I loved this book! It is thrilling, exciting, dangerous , romantic and so twisted! The thought that had to go into the story in just incredible. Lies and deceit that have been going on for over 30 years too! Add the mafia to this story and you have a great read!

The author, Ellis Vidler once again does a fantastic job at keeping me glued to my computer so I don't miss a clue. An arm gripping suspense tale that will chill you (as it did me) right down to the bone! It was that good! The narrator, April Grace Lowe delivers a flawless read with multiple voices, accents and emotions which only adds to the excitement and the story! What a great read this book turned out to be!
