The descriptions of the mountain as well as the logistics of the climb keep one on the edge of their seats and turning the pages. A must read for any lover of adventure laced with spicy romance!

⁠⁠I’ve read Lindsey’s and Ty’s story (Cold Horizon ) twice now. The second time through it was as intense and suspenseful as the first, but I loved it even more because I could focus on visualizing the setting (after checking out images online of K2 and the various landmarks mentioned in the book); and I could enjoy the character development and the buildup to the climb along with Ty and his crew. Cold Horizon gripped me from the start and held me captive page after page. If you are a fan of ad ...more

Cold Horizon took me by complete surprise! While I had been expecting an emotionally-packed story from the premise, this book delivered that along with so much more. It had enough drama to keep me entertained and yet still toed the line of realism that kept me completely invested in the story until its end.

Lindsey's internal strength as a character was awe inspiring. The difficult loss of her sister Alison, in combination with scaling a mountain, K2, is not something for the faint of heart. What

I may not be able to climb the small molehill, but I sure do enjoy the books which tell me the thrill and exhilaratiion that comes with climbing the unattainable mountain face, especially K2, the highest peak on earth. I am quite familiar with the terms used, so this book became an easy read. Add a thrilling story to it, and it is absolute nirvana.

Lindsey not only lost her sister Allison to K2 but her mojo to climb since the past 2 years. But when she got to know of the American group led by Ty

Yikes! This was a surprise treasure! Partly because the subject of mountain climbing didn’t even interest me going in. I only picked up the book because I was checking out a few of the RONE award finalists. Otherwise I doubt I ever would have given it a try. Man, am I glad I did! The author did a spectacular job of plopping the reader right into the middle of the extreme experience of climbing K2, the second highest, but by far the most difficult, mountain in the world.

I not only read on the edg
Cold Horizon was a great read. I couldn't stop reading. It is full of adventure, holding your breath moments. I never knew anything about mountain climbing and this story was very informative and exciting to read. I like the relationships between the different climbers and different personalities. Well written.

One hears about mountaineering teams reaching the summit of a peak in the news, but very seldom do we have any idea of what makes a climb possible. The plot of this story is suspenseful, enlightening, adventurous and romantic. It also spells out the reality of the risks taken by climbers to reach the summit, the dangers, the loss of life and the interpersonal relationships. This novel is incredibly well written and left me feeling partly horrified that anyone would subject themselves to such an ...more

As an avid reader—2, sometimes 4 books a week—I love it when a book grabs me, twists me, and holds me to the very end, although when I started Cold Horizon, Kristy McCaffrey’s awesomely researched novel about sumiting K2, arguably the most dangerous peak in the world, I had to step past one fact....I don’t like even the idea of mountain climbing, especially the cold.

But, along with Lindsay’s search to resolve her sister’s death and her drive to reach the top of K2, I was into it for the climb, a

I didn’t think I would love book 2 in the Pathways series as much as the first one because my beloved great white’s aren’t in it but I was wrong! I loved Cold Horizon! The research and details in this book make it 5 stars! I felt like I was in the story. The adventures in the series are so exciting, I cannot wait to see what kind of adventure awaits in book 3!

Cold Horizon!

I had no idea if I would like a book about mountain climbing, but I knew I loved and enjoyed anything Kristy McCaffrey wrote, so I downloaded it to read. Well let me tell ya, I found it hard to put this book down. I was drawn very quickly into the world of mountain climbing, the hardships of the climb, the excitement of reaching the top, and the sadness when someone didn't make it safely off the mountain. I loved the characters, each one perfect in their parts, and I came to care ab

After reading 'Deep Blue' the first book in the Pathway series, I looked forward to reading book two, 'Cold Horizon', and it is just as adrenaline-fuelled, believable and emotional as the first book. The second book is a standalone read, although characters from the first book are mentioned, this is Lindsey and Tyler's adventure.

Tyler is an adventure writer, surfer and mountain climber, and Lindsey, a dedicated climber too, has to be on his next expedition, to climb the savage mountain K2. Not b

I really enjoyed Deep Blue, so I could not wait to read Cold Horizon! Krist McCaffrey knows how to create atmosphere. Cold Horizon explores mountain climbing, particularly, climbing K2, which is the highest peak on Earth. Whoa. I’m no mountain climber – I’m terrified of heights…so this novel had me holding my breath!

Similarly to Deep Blue, it’s clear Kristy McCaffrey did her research, because this felt super realistic. I love the descriptions and the plot line. The thrill was wonderful and I rea

This is an amazing book. I'm not usually captivated by outdoor winter-time activities, especially high-risk ones, so I was surprised when this story grabbed ahold of me, placing me at 24,500 ft. in waist deep snow and freezing temperatures, climbing dangerous mountains alongside characters obsessed with exactly that. I was breathless when they couldn't get enough oxygen in the thin air. I pulled for every one of the well-developed, unique, strong characters, especially Lindsay Coulson, who was n ...more

This is a real page turner. Lots of action, adventure and suspense. I liked most of the characters. There were a couple that were easy to dislike. Lindsay was born with the mountain climbing gene. Her father died climbing a mountain and just two years before, her sister died on K2. Now Lindsey is looking for an introduction to Ty so she can ask to be a part of the team he is putting together to climb K2. There are several teams and a lot of different personalities. Ty is excited to have Lindsey ...more

Will you survive? Will you succeed? I encourage you to go on this journey. It was an eye opening experience for this mountaine

I loved this book! So well written, even if I didn’t understand all the technical mountain climbing stuff. But the author made the climb come alive for me. The love story was also believable to me. Not too rushed. Not too graphic.

This is fantastic! I felt like I was really up there on K2. I like the emotional depth of all the characters. Gripping storyline that keeps me on edge. Love it! I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review.

Interesting premise, but it wasn't my style of book...
