FYI this short story has characters previously introduced in Laura Johnson's book "Crush" so unless you have read Crush you might be confused as to what is going on at times. Tammy from Crush is a writer and researcher for animal rights. This story is about one experience in particular, that occurs as Tammy is coming to a personal impasse in his career. As he learns about a case of murder and animal abuse, Tammy is obviously aware that if he does not "retire" from the harsher side of his calling ...more
This is just a very short story of Tammy who is one of the MC's in the book CRUSH. If you haven't read Crush, you need to read it for this to make sense. This revolves around some of the undercover work Tammy does for his stories, and how it is effecting him.

I love Laura Susan Johnson. She made me fall in love with her debut novel and I am desperate to read more from her. Cold Foot has Tammy from Crush in it. It's not a sequel, but a short spin off of the story. I loved this and it was really short, but really good. The abuse of animals is horrible, but this book describes things so well.
Highly recommend this!
Highly recommend this!
I loved Tammy and Jamie in Crush but I was hoping that when I got to read them again it wouldn't be a dreary story as this. In Crush there was so much redemption and hope but in this one they just seemed sad. There has to be a more positive life in front of Tammy and Jamie. As well as a book filled with them both not just one and a little of the other. I felt such happiness at the end of Crush but this book took it away.
