I love reading but I love reading the old fashion way. But this book was different, it kept ,e up at night reading and reading wondering what would happen to Alex and Mallory. This is a wonderful book, well written and a gripping story. It going to be hard to find something else to read after this, nothing can match up to this.
A Cold Dark Place
Lots of twists and turns as Mallory finally discovers the truth about her kidnapped and assumed dead twin sister who had been missing for 25 years. Can Mallory, new FBI agent, find the serial killer who was responsible ?
Her career choice was made with this possibility in mind. Mallory’s whole life is devoted to finding her sister and punishing whoever was responsible. No time for dating or letting anyone get close to her. Her focus was always on Payton since she was 5 years old.
At least that was true until she met Alex Parker. She fell hard for him as he fell in love with her. He protects her as much as possible knowing his secretive life could send him to prison for life.
Honestly better than I first anticipated. The characters keep it interesting however the end was almost predictable
