Publisher's Summary

In the stark light of dawn, the young couple are laid out on their backs by the dying campfire, their hands clasped between them. Their eyes are open, but their hearts are cold....

When a park ranger stumbles across the bodies of Valerie and Tyler Yates by a creek in the small town of Denton, Detective Josie Quinn is first on the scene. Still reeling from the news that her abusive mother is dying, Josie suspects this is more than just accidental poisoning, and she’s right: Someone jammed a crudely carved pendant necklace down Valerie’s throat before she died.

Combing the area, Josie’s team discover a third sleeping bag indicating there could have been an extra guest around the fire that night. A lucky escape? A missing victim? Or a suspect on the run? Finding this person is the key to the entire investigation....

Trawling the couple’s photo albums for clues, Josie can’t imagine why anyone might want to harm these smiling, carefree young lovers. Until a face in one of the pictures stops her in her tracks and leads her to a farmhouse hidden deep within the forest - a special place where people go to escape, and to hide. There they meet a young girl with frightened eyes and bandaged wrists who knows more than she is saying. But the next day she’s found dead, choked with a matching necklace....

With her mother’s life hanging by a thread, Josie has an impossible decision to make. But first, she must find the meaning of the pendant and catch this twisted killer before another innocent life is taken. Is she already too late?

An addictive and gripping crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal best-selling author. Those who love Robert Dugoni, Angela Marsons, and Rachel Caine will be sleeping with the lights on after this roller-coaster.

Love this series!

I have read the first six books of the series in e-book. I love them all and decided I was finally ready to buy a book! Josie is a very interesting character and with each book we find a little more out about her past. Yes, some of it is upsetting, but it makes this character so interesting!
With each book Lisa Reagan calls back another layer of Josie for us. The mysteries are wonderful and getting to know Josie and what makes her react the way she does holds my interest greatly! If you like Lisa Jackson, or even a good police procedural series, try one of these books! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Disappointed with this story

The narrator was boring. The story was okay. I feel asleep listening to the book. Just only having Josie Quinn doesn't work. Noah, who from the first book was always interesting, this book boring. Her twin was not in the book, she was always interesting. I would like her to have more of a role, not less.
Lisa Regan took all the characters that helped with the Josie Quinn stories, not put them in or made the boring. I hope the next one to back with the story of the victim or killer and make the other characters interesting or in the story again.

A dead couple in the woods, a missing woman...

Can Josie and her team figure out the link between these three ppl and a local cult?
The first few chapters seemed a bit slow but then the story picked up steam. Not the best of the series but still worth the read/listen.

My favorite so far!!!!

I love this series, but so far, Cold Heart Creek is my favorite of them all!
I had ABSOLUTELY NO idea who it was until the very end!!! :)
Josie's inner conflict made things even more interesting!
The ending was the sweetest!
I cannot wait for book #8! I'm sure they will just keep getting better!
