*Free Book ↶ Cold to the Touch (The Dark Peak, #2) ⇯ Ebook or Kindle ePUB free

I ve made an important reader decision and that s that if I ever get asked the question again about which book would I take to a desert island, it would be Dark Peak and yes, I m counting DP as one entity Or if I m enrolling in EJ Noyes Alone experiment, then my dog and Meg Sanne stories would be all I need The author jumps you right into the story with an emotional mugging that will leave you heart bruised Stay strong because there s light at the end of the book s journey.There s another excellent mystery for Detective Sanne Jensen and her crew to solve Plenty of lively Emergency Room drama for Dr Meg Fielding Although the author has medical knowledge, there s no info dump, just authenticity that give it the feel of one of those exiting tv shows where everything s going to hell.But what absolutely dictates Book 2 to be mandatory reading is the continuing evolution of Meg and Sanne as individuals, so flawed and yet remarkable, the way real people can be They re the folks you call or text at 2am because they ll answer and they won t judge you at all, no matter what Especially Sanne, that s my girl The writing is a tight mix of Brit speak and pinpoint accurate words that drive the story along and create moods and setting like nobody s business.I could keep raving but I ve got Book 3 to read. UPDATE Listened to this audioback on the way home on a 14 hour roadtrip from Ft Collins, CO back to Dallas, TX The wife wouldn t let me turn it off Got home and the book wasn t done yet, so we re now listening on our nightly dog walks and she s hooked I know it won t get her to pick up an actual book, but hey audiobooks count for something, right I have to say that the audio versions take a LOT longer to listen to than it took me to actually just read this Nothing missing though I typically don t do audiobooks, so I was a bit worried, but the narrator was wonderful Hunter has done it again For the second time in as many days, I m marking a mystery suspense novel as a well deserved 5 stars That s just not a normal thing for me so take it as a hint to go read these books NOW This second book in the series was marginally worse than the first, but we re talking about a.0000001% difference If the first book, No Good Reason was a full 5 stars, then this one is a 4.9999999999 in my book Even though I still wouldn t classify these as romance novels, I freaking love Meg and Sanne as MCs, and absolutely cannot wait to pick up the third book to see where their story goes next.Oh and of course, the mystery was amazing too The only reason I m rating this infinitesimally worse than the first is because Hunter gave me such a high expectation of perfection after No Good Reason Plus, I found this one to be just a tad predictable, but again we re talking about minutia here Cold to the Touch still managed plenty of twists to keep this seasoned mystery suspense reader surprised and wanting Do yourself a favor if you haven t already and pick up these books right now Even if you ve already read them, go re read them You won t be sorry Well that was a trip Part II to the Dark Peak series had me 1 cringing in my seat making unique and grotesque faces and blech noises that made the cat jump off my lap and hide, 2 feeling utterly exhausted by the amount of insane hours the MCs work at their thankless jobs, 3 subconsciously reaching for my electric blanket at every turn of a page damn this is a cold book , and 4 hearing my arteries sympathetically narrowing by another 1 2 inch I did not get my wish for any semblance of healthy eating.Sanne and Meg are still saving the day all the while drinking an exorbitant amount of tea This was a thriller mystery through and through, and the writing and build up had me guessing all the way to the end While in the first book I patted myself on the back for calling whodunnit early on, this one I was quite surprised There are awful moments of violence, and a shit tonne of crappy weather, but a few things got me through, namely Sanne s work team of Nelson, Stanhope, George and Fred not the Weasley twins, unfortunately , their loyalty, humour, and quiet confidence in one another being quite remarkable And also, the exemplary friendship between Sanne and Meg and their dedication to one another They seem like a pair that would be a lot of fun to have a beer with, amiright But I m doing the fucking cooking, ladies, and you shall eat greens and live long life.There is a fracture between the two in this book however, and the way Ms Hunter weaved this in was utterly flawless That scene Where Sanne is going upstairs in her cold cold cottage cough Electric Blanket cough with her hot water bottle then the next scene with icy toes against Meg s leg DO YOU ALL REMEMBER That was some fantastic lead up and I still shake my head in awe, and have a lump in THROAT, YO We also see Sanne at her most vulnerable, as she is on a suspension at work due to stress, mistakes, heartache, and probably some other colourful PTSD symptoms thrown in, and we see how she navigates not only her demanding job, but also her own emotional turmoil Anyone else get destroyed when view spoiler Meg quietly says, You didn t want me COME FORTH, WATERWORKS hide spoiler I freaking love this series Meg and Sanne are definitely one of my favourite fictional couple I think I like Cold to the Touch even than the first one Hunter s prose is smooth and descriptive enough to set the scenes and keep you captivated, and she writes some of the best dialogues I ve ever read All of her characters are flawed which only makes them feel real and likable, IMO I love the friendship between Nelson and Sanne It s no secret that I like some hurt comfort in my stories, and so I m always happy when reading anything by Cari Hunter She knows how to deliver some good h c without it ever feeling unrealistic and or overly dramatic.I also appreciate that Meg and Sanne have their own individual arc through the book I wanted to hug Meg so badly She s such a great character I might have a crush She s a little cynical cinnamon roll and she deserves all the love Her brother is such an arse I m definitely happy with how things progressed between Meg and Sanne, and I can t wait to read the next one and last in this series Shout out to Fred and George I don t know if their names is coincidental But it makes me happy every time they re there and I rather think it s intentional If you haven t read it yet, I highly recommend this series. Awesome read the storyline picked up right from the 1st installment and had Sanne dealing with her own issues and worries of the pastnot a boring book at all because of the plot twist,serial killing,murdering mayhem that the cops could not tell who was behind,the suspense and mystery..love the derange,charming,psychotic mind and the split plus addictive personality being played out in this story by the authorhorrible killing gross but that is what makes a good writer to provoke us the readers to keep going and enjoying this good serieshighly recommend Reading page 2O reaction What The Heck, Cari Hunter view spoiler I suspected there must be a reason why Ms.Hunter kept Dr.Emily Woodall until the end of No Good Reason and in this book she played a major role in Meg s life until page 281 hide spoiler Another fantastic book by Hunter While I think I liked No Good Reason a little bit better, this book held up excellent for a sequel This is easily another 5 Star book for me.This book picks up a little bit after book 1 left off Unfortunately, things have changed, and not for the better Sanne and Meg are apart, with Sanne barely keeping it together The loss of her best friend and sometime lover is affecting her so much she is put on probation at her job After being given a case, that is almost a punishment, Sanne realizes there is to a junkies murder than meets the eye.In No Good Reason we realize how meaningful the relationship between Sanne and Meg is In this book, we realize how they would function apart and how it affects them Hunter has woven such a bond between these two characters Book 1, was filled with so much chemistry and sexual tension, this book showed me how much they really love each other As a couple, who are not really a couple, I can t remember reading about two women that belonged together Hunter s writing is really brilliant And considering these are mystery crime thriller books, she puts a lot of romance authors to shame.The mystery crime element, was not as heart pounding as in No Good Reason It was still well written, and had some real exciting moments This book absolutely sucks you in, and doesn t let go until you are done I actually feel bad that I went through these books so fast I didn t want to say goodbye to these characters yet, I didn t want the story to end I am so thankful book 3, A Quiet Death, is almost out I would not want to wait much longer to read it.All I can say is, if you have not read this series, what are you waiting for Grab No Good Reason, and get ready for a hell of a ride. *Free Book ☞ Cold to

because for a little than four weeks I will traveling some parts of Australia And I still haven t packed my stuff So I wish you all a good time and enjoy some books I can read afterward My rating 5 stars Cold to the Touch was a worthy second book in the Dark Peak series It was written with the same intensity and it took me right back to the Peak District, set 6 months after No Good Reason Cari Hunter is a writing marvel She does everything right The dialogue flows so natural, there is so much knowledge in both the medical and the police setting The main character s motivations are flawless, they are compelling and loveable The author has crafted a gorgeously detailed and also grizzly world for us to walk around in The winter setting is so convincing I could almost hear the crunch of snow underfoot and feel the cold seep into my bones a wonderful thing as we are experiencing a heatwave at the moment Like book one, I kept going and was unable to distance myself from the story so I ended up reading it in one sitting I just had to know what was coming next Hunter kept me guessing till the end My only minor beef with the subplot of the brother was that the conclusion was handled off screen What should have ended in a bang ended in a sizzle and that took away some of the satisfaction we would have felt But all in all a marvelous read Meg and Sanne go through some strife together but you know what they say, that what does not kill you makes you stronger I love how these two are when they are together and I can t wait to see what happens to them in book three.f fThemes triggers for physical abuse, very graphic crime scenes, I love Meg and Sanne so much, they both are so dedicated and work like dogs, England runs on cups of tea or brews , now I want to go to the chippy, I regret not being able to read this to my buddy D., she would have loved this series.5 stars
