A Cold White Fear: A Meg Harris Mystery - R.J. Harlick

3.5 stars  #AColdWhiteFear   @dundurnpress   R. J. HARLICK
I liked this book. However, I think that the hostage situation went on just a little too long. I was beginning to think that I was taken hostage by the book and was becoming bored.

However, it did get better. There were some great emotional moments, as well.

There were moments when I couldn't decide if the Professor was a good guy or a bad guy and it was sometimes hard to tell who was the leader of this bunch. But, then when the others started showing up, you could tell for sure who was the leader.

For me, this was a good book, I think it could be great if it was shortened a little bit, but it was interesting and enjoyable. Also, I think the fact that they were held hostage in a farmhouse in the middle of a winter storm didn't really give a lot of space for a lot of action. I think that in of itself gave the author less to work with. Nonetheless, I do have to say that the ending does make up for the slow middle. The ending makes it worth 4 stars and the middle takes away a 1/2 star for me.

Thanks to Dundurn and Net Galley for providing me with this free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
