Physicist Scarlett Stone is the daughter of the man considered to be the most notorious Russian agent in FBI history. With her father dying in prison she's determined to prove he's innocent, but time is running out. Using a false identity, she gains access to the Russian ambassador's Christmas party, searching for evidence of a set-up.
Former Navy SEAL, now FBI Special Agent, Matt Lazlo, is instantly attracted to Scarlett but life is too complicated to pursue a politician's daughter. When he discovers she lied to him about her identity, he hunts her down with the ruthless efficiency he usually reserves for serial killers.
Not only does Scarlett's scheme fail, it puts her in the sights of powerful people who reward unwanted curiosity with brutality. The FBI - and Matt - aren't thrilled with her, either. But as agents involved in her father's investigation start dying, and the attempts to stop Scarlett intensify, Matt and his colleagues begin to wonder. Could they have a traitor in their midst? As Scarlett and Matt dig for the truth they begin to fall passionately for one another. But the real spy isn't about to let anyone uncover their secrets, and resolves to remain firmly in the shadows - and for that to happen, Matt and Scarlett have to die.
Cold Light of Day begins with Scarlett trying to clear her father's name for being the most notorious FBI agent who turned traitor to his country. Attending a party at the Russian Embassy with her friend April LeMay and pretending that she is April's sister, Sarah Lemay was the first step, Scarlett could get in to bug the ambassador's office except somebody has beaten her to it. Scarlett could have walked away but she lost one of her earrings which put her on very dangerous people's radar, who don't want the case to be reopen.
FBI Agent Matt Lazlo stepped in as a representative for his boss, FBI ASAC Lincoln Frazer at the Russian Embassy party. He bumped into Scarlett who spilled champagne on him. He felt the instant attraction to Scarlett. He wanted to ask Scarlett for her number except he didn't feel comfortable to be dating anyone while he has family obligation.
When Matt discovered that Scarlett has lied to him of who she really is and what she attempted to do, he arrested her. As more people are being hurt and start dying, the FBI and Matt are starting to wonder if Scarlett's claim that they have imprisoned the wrong man for being a spy.
Cold Light of Day really have non-stop action. The action doesn't stay with the main characters. It gets spread out between the secondary characters in the story. The only thing that the readers/listeners know is that there is still a spy in the FBI Agency working with the Russians.
I love the cat and mouse game in the story. The Russians and the spy are trying to draw out Scarlett by attacking people Scarlett cares about. Matt and Scarlett are trying to stay one step ahead them from being killed and trying to figure who they can trust. There are so many twists and turns especially with the secondary characters who could possible be a spy(ies).
The narrator, Eric Dove did an excellent job. There are so many players in this story, it is amazing that he could give different voices to the characters. I hope he continues to narrate for the Cold Justice series.
I was given this audiobook by the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated or influence in any way for writing this review.

I really enjoyed listening to this book! The characters and imagery were so well done. The story pulled me in from the very beginning. Books featuring the FBI have always appealed to me. I thought the author did great with the various characters and how some were not all as they seemed. I do not like to give away spoilers in my reviews, and with that said, I won't write a synopsis of the book. I will definitely continue to listen to more books by this author and narrator.
Enjoyed the mystery & adventurous plot. Appreciated the overlap of characters from the previous two books. Glad that same narrator was used.
Any additional comments?
I absolutely loved this audible. It has the perfect mix of suspense, and the betrayal that seems to go throughout the book draws you in further.<br/><br/>Scarlett is an awesome heroine, who, after screwing up majorly, finds herself on the run. Matt Lazio was a hero that I wanted to love and hate at the same time (although sometimes I felt he was justified in being an @$$ towards Scarlett) The chemistry between the two was intense, and even when faced with danger, the sparks fly. <br/><br/>The audio drew me in from the beginning, and while some of it seemed slow, it was the perfect listening while walking laps or cleaning the house. <br/><br/>Eric Dove did a fantastic job narrating, and I can't wait to hear more of his awesome audios.<br/><br/>A five star audio, that will keep your heart pounding, and questioning who really deceived who throughout. I definitely recommend one clicking this<br/>
Would you consider the audio edition of Cold Light of Day to be better than the print version?
I didn't read the print version, so it is hard to say; however, I am finding my groove on listening to audio books. I really enjoyed this one!
What did you like best about this story?
I liked the love Scarlett Stone showed for her parents and her friend. How she would do anything for them, even take on Russia! When she loves someone, it is with her whole being.
What does Eric Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I enjoyed hearing the different voices for each character, as opposed to them all sounding like me!!!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, and I did! Didn't stop listening even at mealtimes.
Any additional comments?
I loved reading about how embassies work and how some people have diplomatic immunity. So sad that Scarlett's father was wrongfully sent to prison years ago for espionage.
Who does not like a mystery and action packed story with a little romance! This was a awesome. story that keeps you guessing until the end! I did not guess the perp and I love being surprised about who the guilty party is! Great story and loved how audible brought it to life!
ok Seriously, Toni Anderson has been bumped up on my must buy list. This series is awesome. IT has just the right balance of relationship heat and work suspense. The story is fast paced so the sex isn't stupid. IT's not something like oh we just got shot at so let's duck into this broom closet and have a quickie before the bad guys find us. Her writing is also realistic. While listening it actually had me thinking, could this really happen? Can this be going on right now?
Matt was hot and kick ass. Scarlet was beautiful and smart. Sure a stupid move on her part is what set this whole thing off but she didn't pull a really really stupid move, although she honestly thought about it.
I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I'm sure I won't be disappointed.
Eric Dove is a great talent and I look forward to any romance book he narrates.
Would you listen to Cold Light of Day again? Why?
Omg yes! I loved this book, it kept me on the edge the entire story. It's well written and flows great and the narrating brings the story to life in a way that pulls you into the plot.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I would have to say Scarlet bc of her strong determination to clear her father's name and her bravery and strength.
Which character – as performed by Eric Dove – was your favorite?
.Matt because he makes him sound strong and sexy and confident like an FBI Agent should but also shows his protective and passionate side equally well.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There was but it would be a big spoiler, so I would rather not say.
Any additional comments?
Riveting, full of action, suspense and romance , this book took me on a we ride of cover ups, deceotion, attempted murder and kidnapping. It's an incredible story full of colorful characters and ruthless villains that you will truly enjoy.
