Friday Memes: A Cold Day in Hell by Lissa Marie Redmond

"You got a man here to see you, Lauren."

Detective Lauren Riley put her coffee cup down on top of a mound of paperwork that was inching its way toward the ceiling. It swayed there perilously for a second as she juggled the receiver, then settled. "Did he ask for me? By name, specifically?"
Friday 56 (from 56% of the eARC):
Arlene was the love of his life, not Martha, and he had killed her to prove it. Despite her obvious terror, he went on to tell Arlene that the wedding ring Martha had been wearing, along with the knife he used to kill her, was still stashed up in their attic.
This week I am spotlighting A Cold Day in Hell by Lissa Marie Redmond. I got this one from Midnight Ink, a new-to-me publisher via NetGalley. Here is the description from Amazon:
Lauren's job as a cold case homicide detective is her life. And life just got complicated.

Lauren Riley is an accomplished detective who has always been on the opposite side of the courtroom from slick defense attorney Frank Violanti. But now he's begging to hire her as a private investigator to help clear his client of murder. At first Lauren refuses, wanting nothing to do with the media circus surrounding the case―until she meets the eighteen-year-old suspect.

To keep an innocent teen from life in prison, Lauren must unravel the conflicting evidence and changing stories to get at the buried facts. But the more she digs, the more she discovers that nothing is what it first appears to be. As Lauren puts her career and life in danger, doubt lurks on every corner . . . and so does her stalker.


  1. Another new-to-me book that sounds like one I would enjoy. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  2. I haven't read anything by this author but this sounds like one I'd enjoy. That 56 is creepy!

  3. I am reading a book right now about the beginning of the FBI. It is really something to think about people who can follow up on leads, even cold ones. My Friday Quotes

  4. Run Arlene, run! Yikes! I'd love for you and your readers to check out my BB & 56 for today . . .

  5. This sounds like something I'd enjoy. Will have to look up this author's back list. And thanks, by the way, for the feedback about Melinda Leigh that you left on my blog.

  6. Sounds fascinating. I think I would like this!

  7. This sounds like a good one. Enjoy your current read!

  8. This sounds great! Thanks for sharing! Have an awesome weekend! :)

  9. That 56 though... wicked!! I would totally read this! Happy weekend!

  10. It sounds as though this one has the makings of a good new series, from an author who is new to me.

    Imagine having your husband or partner tell you he has killed another woman just to prove how much he loves you - or was Martha his wife / partner and Arlene the other woman?.

    Either way, I don't think it would be much consolation and I need to read on, just to discover how Arlene handles the situation.

    Thanks for sharing, this book has real possibilities :)


  11. Killed her to prove she was the love of his life? Wow, I'm already on the edge of my seat. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  12. Eeek! Your 56 is really intriguing and freaky all at the same time! I wonder if Arlene is going to discover the truth. I hope that you enjoy it! :)

  13. This really sounds wonderful. Great choice.

  14. Midnight Ink puts out some good books. I haven't heard of this one, but it sounds good! I hope you enjoy it!

  15. He killed her to prove it? I'm intrigued - hope it ends up being an excellent (and exciting) read.

  16. Sounds like a good one. Happy reading!
