it was amazing

Wow. This book was awesome. Terrific. When I bought it for $0.99, I was expecting nothing more than amateur writing, a recycled plot, and/or a totally predictable ending. From the beginning through to the end, ONE COLD NIGHT was none of those things.

After reading this book, I have filed Katia Lief in my mind with the likes of Jodi Picoult and Meg Gardiner. She falls about right in between those two.

I couldn't put this thriller down. Without giving too much away, this book played on all of my emotions. With the adoption twist, I felt Susan's love and heartache for Lisa. With the unsolved Becky Rothka case, I felt Dave's frustration and determination as well as Marie Rothka's constant hope. With the discovery of Susan's secret, I felt both Peter's joy at having a daughter and his anger at having missed so much. And when Theo Childress finally came into the light, I felt everyone's disgust.

I plan on snatching up all the $0.99 Katia Lief books I can find. I don't know why they are priced so low, but Katia Lief and ONE COLD NIGHT have sucked me in to buying them.
