and Jill Carter have moved to a small Missouri town where Jill can continue working her way toward a coveted doctorate at a nearby university While Jill pursues her passion, Richard feels trapped in a nothing job, in a nothing town with no friends and where the residents see him as nothing than an interloping outsider Richard can t focus enough to keep a job any job and spends his days pining away for a dream life that can never be a job with the FBI After a self defense killing of a wanted criminal, the resultant arrest and then governor s pardon, his pursuit of a criminology degree is moot No one in law enforcement will ever hire him His dream is dead.Until their neighbor Molly passes out in their front yard one night The next morning she comes over to thank Richard for helping her back home in her drunken state and begins to share with him the reason behind her actions Three months before her eight month old daughter was taken from her home in the wee morning hours The problem now is that the local law enforcement believe she s responsible Her blood alcohol level was off the charts that night, not counting the almost lethal dosage of Valium in her system With no tiny body yet discovered and little else to go on, they cannot hold the young mother indefinitely nor charge her with the crime they believe her guilty of murdering her own child.With nothing than his gut instinct, Richard believes Molly s story and agrees to help find out what happened to little Mancie that night much to Jill s chagrin Jill s been fighting an uphill battle to help her husband find hope and healing again, not to mention income to keep them financially afloat Now Molly s quest threatens the very thread of his sanity, leaving Jill feeling even vulnerable and helpless in the face of uncertainty What if Molly really did kill her baby What about the sudden death of the babysitter Molly s boss And what if Richard is next The beginning of Cold Tears wrapped me up in the heart of the story, the kidnapping, and Jill s and Richard s emotional struggles But after awhile, it felt like the story wasn t moving forward and that the conversations between Jill and Richard were just constant rehashing of the same argument so much so that I almost felt as if I was on a hamster wheel just running and spinning without getting anywhere Don t get me wrong there were some really good elements of a mystery here and if the story would have stayed on track in that regard, it would have kept my heart pounding At almost four hundred pages, however, I felt it was just wrung out until it was overlong and lost much steam because of it.Jill and Richard obviously had a lot of trauma going on in their lives I d liked to have gotten a bit of the back story to what had happened prior to their moving to Missouri Without that, it just seemed like they argued about and conversely avoided arguing about the same things over and over without any growth or resolution I get these kind of arguments DO happen in real life, but this is a novel Jill flipped back and forth in her support lack of support of Richard s investigation until I felt as if I was watching a very looong tennis match It made her come across as petty and a bit unhinged at times and then almost like she was trying to be a parent to a child by the end Even though Richard seemed a bit child like at times, I could understand his suffering and depressed state after having the rug pulled out from underneath him His whole life s work has collapsed Molly s need to find out what happened to her daughter fuels a faint spark of life he hasn t felt in many months The whole way Jill treated him, however, took her from a rather sympathetic character to a bit of a pathetic individual.Elements of the mystery surrounding what had happened to Molly s child were initially cohesive and then became a rather disjointed mish mash that again didn t really move the story forward until all of a sudden poof here s the resolution So many characters popped in and out without getting any real time or having any real connection to the story they seemed almost unnecessary or an afterthought to get back to the main story arc after weaving away for awhile This is where point of view rather ebbed and flowed too much between heads, whereas again at the beginning POV was clear and concise.However, showing was good We followed along with the characters most of the time as the action was happening except for the occasional moments where things like but he didn t notice the car passing slowly by and such that pulled me from the story ugh I appreciated this element of showing instead of telling than I can say, especially when reading a mystery.The elements of a good mystery are here With some tightening of the storyline to improve pacing, a bit of Richard s back story blended in, and additional editing of missing or misused words, I think Cold Tears has promise I ll give it three and a half stars flag

also loved the internal turmoil of both Richard and Jill The small town was written beautifully, making me feel like I was there personally Molly, the next door neighbor who s baby disappeared, was equally untrustworthy and lovable Each clue uncovered came together wonderfully at the end, making everything make sense The whole time I was trying to figure out the clues, but the author keeps enough until the end All in all, I loved the storyline, characters, and the setting The only thing I had problems with is how wishy washy Richard was about actually helping Molly find her baby One second he would be dying to help and the next he d say he wanted out Characters I loved each character The police officer was hilarious Molly, like I said, was a little sketchy, but also lovable I felt so bad for Jill, she was so understanding even when Richard was rude or whatever Richard was so kind hearted and loyal, regardless of what people s reputations Each characters flaws were so touching and realistic Quotes You always said that despair was a sin He d always supposed that people killed themselves to escape something they thought worse than death Recommend Yes, 4 5 stars Loved
