Cold Hearted [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Cold Hearted" by Beverly Barton.

Product Description

They all loved her. That was their mistake. Two husbands, her college fiance, an influential boss -- every man who gets close to Jordan Price is made to pay in blood. And the list is growing. The more investigator Rick Carson delves into the string of deaths from which Jordan has profited handsomely, the more convinced he becomes that he is dealing with a cunning, Cold Hearted, unstoppable killer.

My Review:

Jordan Price was married to Senator Dan Price when he committed suicide - but is it?  His family doesn't believe it was suicide but murder and Jordan wants to get to the truth so she hires Powell Agency.

Rick Carson is an investigator for Powell Agency and is assigned the Dan Price's case.  At the very start he is conflicted because they always look at the spouse first (he's attracted to her) but he doesn't want her to be.  He believes Jordan is the Black Widow when he uncovers two things about her:

1.  Her fiance Robby Joe Wright died in a car accident
2.  Her first husband Boyd died in a hunting accident

As he gets to know the Price family he learns a secret they want to keep hidden forever from the public eye.  Then Jordan is targeted but she doesn't want to believe someone close to her is after her.

I thought it was really funny how Rick would act so cold at first with Jordan then the next he would be very protective of her.

This book had a perfect balance of suspense and romance with some red herrings thrown.  We also hear the killer's thoughts which proves they are delusional.  The plot and pacing are well paced and it was so much fun trying to figure out who the killer was.
