Secrets lie buried in ice...

One of them can kill her.

Home for Christmas after her long-missing mother’s body is found, nothing will keep Nora Livingstone from uncovering the truth about the cold case. Especially not Deputy Sheriff Rush Buchanan, whom she once loved and left. Even when threats become attempts on her life, Rush can’t dissuade her—but he will protect her. Because someone is determined to bury the truth…or bury Nora.

I can't imagine the pain that Nora felt growing up knowing that your mother was constantly running around on your father and then having her completely disappear to never be heard from again. It effected her entire being and how she lived her whole life. My heart broke for her. When her mother's body was recovered from its watery grave, Deputy Rush Buchanan, Nora's ex, was there to help her through the grieving process and to try to find answers. I felt like Nora and Rush really had some great chemistry! I didn't like the part of their history where Rush cheated on an ex girlfriend to be with Nora. There is a right and a wrong way to go about relationships, and that was no way to prove to Nora he wanted to be with her. I also felt that Nora was irrational at times, proceeding head first into terrible situations, but all in all, did enjoy the book!

I never saw that ending coming!!! This was my sentiment at the end of Cold Case Christmas by Jessica Patch. This was another action-packed edge of your seat suspense novel that I have come to expect and appreciate from Ms. Patch. Nora Livingstone returns home determined to solve the cold case of her mother's death. She ends up being helped by Deputy Sheriff Rush Buchanan who is also her ex. Someone in town is determined to keep Nora from finding the answers she is seeking. Be sure to check out the book to find out who is behind the murder and enjoy finding out if Nora and Rush can move past their past to make a relationship work. I was given a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Oh this was a fast and suspenseful ride! I loved every minute of it! I tried to figure out the mystery before it was done – this author did great at throwing suspicion at others to get you off track. Fantastic tension between Rush and Nora as they tiptoe around their past. You want to knock some sense into them as they try to be friends while not getting killed. Another great suspense story by this author. She never fails to entertain!!

No warm fuzzies in this Christmas story. This is an incredibly suspenseful story set at Christmas time. You'll be watching over your shoulder as Nora and Rush try to unravel the mystery of her mother's untimely death seventeen years ago. As Nora seeks answers to questions regarding this tragedy, she and Rush investigate the possibility of rekindling the relationship they once had. Readers of romantic suspense will be thrilled with this can't-put-it-down novel. I received and e-ARC of this book from the author for review purposes. The thoughts expressed here are my own.

Heart-wrenching, full of intrigue and wrapped around a sweet reunion! Great story! From page one we are drawn into this cold case and kept on the edge of our seats throughout. The groundwork is laid for it to be any number of things to have happened to her mother and we're kept guessing right up until the very end. In the midst of the drama, Rush and Nora find their way through old misunderstandings and hurts to discover the love they both still hold for each other. I loved their story1 Nora Livingstone has lived for almost two decades with this cloud hanging over her. Did her mother really voluntarily leave her that night? Hope that she'd be eventually found and able to explain where she'd been comes to an end when her body is finally discovered. Nora can't accept an accident as the answer though, there's too many unanswered questions. When she lets it be known around town that she's going to find out what happened once and for all, threats start turning up. Who is trying to stop her? And why? Deputy sheriff Rush Buchanan has loved Nora for most of his life. He spent his high school days thinking he was going to marry her and live happily ever after, but when her Mom disappeared, she withdrew and eventually left him behind. Now she's back in town and searching for answers. He'll do anything he can to help her figure out what happened to her mom that night ... and continue his hope that she'll one day see the love he still holds for her is worth sticking around for!

Oh my!! This romantic thriller by Jessica R. Patch is a page turning, nailbiting suspense. It was one crazy ride and I enjoyed every bit of it. The plot, the characters, and the romance made this a wonderful read here at Christmas time. So, get some hot chocolate and snuggle up for some action and sweet romance. *I was given a copy of this book by the publisher and this is my honest opinion.

I don’t think I would want to be a character in one of this author’s books. In this book, there were so many things that Nora went through. It was like she couldn’t catch a break, one thing after another kept happening. Life had hit Nora hard when her mother disappeared when Nora was a young girl. Now someone was trying to kill her or keep her from solving the “cold case” of the death of her mom. Nora’s only help comes from her ex-boyfriend Deputy Sheriff Rush Buchanan. Their chemistry is still strong and they both have a hard time trusting each other. Solving this mystery becomes harder and harder as Christmas draws closer. I like to think I’m pretty good at solving these mysteries, but Jessica Patch has really done a fantastic job with this story. I was totally blown away and on the seat of my chair the whole time I was reading it. I also loved the way the author weaves into this story the example of God’s love for us. As said in the notes from the author; “No matter what your background, what you were born into or what happened to you that you had no control over. You can come out from under that shadow and live in the light through the sweet, healing love of Jesus. You can be free to be who you are meant to be in Christ.” I highly recommend picking up this book. However, I need to warn you, you might not get much sleep until you finish reading it! My husband and I read it in two days. I received a copy of this book from the author to read. All the opinions are my own.

Cold Case Christmas By: Jessica R. Patch
 Hold on for the ride of your life. I was captured at the start. I was not disappointment. Patch weaves a suspense thrilling story that will have you on the edge of your seat trying to read faster to see what is going to happen next. I caught myself holding my breath several times , and other times i had tears in my eyes. There is a cold case where a woman disappeared 17 years ago. Her daughter is back in town and with some new evidence she is determined to find some answers. There are several suspects , but the author keeps you guessing till the end. I was given a com complimentary copy of this book, but was not told that I had to give a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Jessica Patch knocks it out of the park with this book, this book will have you on the edge of your seat with all the twist and turns that are happening. I loved how the author took the book one way and in the end its not what you expected. I love Rush and his heart but I also really enjoyed his dad's story and what he faced and how it truly impacted the story in a way you least expect. No matter what the characters face the author kept bring on new surprises that keeps you guessing till the end.
