This is the third book in the Cold Justice Series.When Scarlott Stone came up with her plan to uncover the truth about her father by bugging the Russian Ambassador's home office, she really didn't think through the what if's. The opportunity presented itself too quickly to do much planning at all. Which is why she was seen on video by both the Russians and the FBI after her aborted attempt, aborted because she discovered a bug was already in the desk lamp she had selected. Special Agent Matt Laz [...]
Originally posted on The Book NymphoQuick summaryScarlett Stone sees a chance to gather evidence to prove her father's innocence and seizes the opportunity (he was convicted 14 years ago of being a spy for the Russians). Trouble is she stepped (clumsily) right into the middle of some serious political intrigue involving the Russian ambassador and the FBI. Special Agent Matt Lazlo had no idea the charming woman he flirted with at a Christmas party would turn out to be major trouble. What I enjoye [...]
Another exciting read from Toni Anderson in this series based around the FBI's BAU. This installment has a daughter trying to prove her father was wrongly imprisoned and labeled a spy 14 years ago by the FBI. Her attempt to bug the Russian Ambassador sets the true spies on a deadly path to remain unknown. An interesting and hot match up between brilliant physicist, Scarlett Stone and exNavy SEAL turned FBI analyst, Matt Lazlo.This is an installment that can be read as a stand alone, but the whol [...]

Only things go wrong and FBI Agent, and former Navy SEAL, Matt Lazlo saves her life and must keep her from sacrificing herself for those she loves.Excellent continuation of the series.

Honestly, I rather enjoyed this one and was originally going for three stars, but Ms. Anderson doesn't know the difference between 'poured' and 'pored', and brutal as you may call me for this, that's where the one star goes.
Fourteen years ago, Scarlett Stone's father was convicted of betraying his country as a Russian spy and sentenced to prison. No one believed him to be innocent except his wife & daughter. Scarlett is on a mission to prove her father's innocence and inadvertently stirs up an international, political hornet's nest in the process - and also disrupts an FBI undercover operation. She is now the target of some very ruthless, scary villains who will do whatever it takes to silence her. Former SEAL, [...]
Words of caution: Never cross a Russian! A Christmas party at the Russian Embassy in Washington, DC turns out to be not a good idea to attend especially if you had planned on putting an electronic listening device in the main office!The big question then is, who is the real traitor?A pretty good read, fast paced, twists and turns, a TSTL moment, and one very hot scene.4 stars and 2 thumbs up
WOW! If you think the Cold War has ended, think again. Cold Light of Day treats us to a game of cat and mouse, American - Russian style and is as taunt a thriller as anything Tom Clancy has ever written.
A great addition to Toni Anderson's "Cold Justice" series.
Plenty of espionage makes up this latest in the Cold Justice series. Each of these book are so full of acts of betrayal and death not only from who you’d consider bad guys – in this book it’s the Russians – but also from our own government in some form. I love the way the author sets it up at the beginning where we know clearly who some of the bad guys are but yet takes us through many twist and turns before we find out who all the players are. The story starts with a daughter trying to [...]
I really liked this one. Fast, adrenalin filled; and full of crosses and double crosses between spies and the FBId within the ranks of the FBI itself. ''Cold Justice'' is such a great RS series. I can't believe more RS readers haven't discovered this author/series yet; as well as Laura Griffins also excellent ''Tracers'' series. Both are great, and I would heartily recommend both series to readers who like RS with a slant towards FBI agents.
Solid 4 Stars.Enjoyable, strong action and sexual tension, but not enough "HEAT" if you know what I mean!Still good fun.
Great Story! Great Narration!This was a great story. Loved the espionage, spies, kidnappings and mystery solving. Wonderful characters too. I really liked Scarlett, she was had a good sense of humor and didn't really have any TSTL moments. She was smart and witty. I liked the hero Matt too. Great character. He had no deep dark issues or I am not good enough's for her. That is a nice change in a story.There was a lot of great dialogue through the entire story. Love lots of dialogue. The chemistry [...]
Two-haiku review:Her father's traitorShe's in bad with FBITrying to clear nameI'm loving seriesAnxiously waiting for nextGreat suspense thrillers
Really enjoying this series, but I'm now tired from reading late into the night.
This is the third book in a series I originally picked up because the premise read like Criminal Minds fanfic, and I have to say that Ms Anderson has pleasantly surprised me with the quality of her writing in each instalment.Her female leads aren't all the kind of kickass chicks I know and love in, say, Elle Kennedy's Midnight books. They are, however, three-dimensional human beings who are all competent enough in their own fields for me to respect them - and Ms Anderson consistently avoids havi [...]
“Cold Light of Day” is a story of loyalty to friends, self-confidence, justice, corrupt politics, betrayal, manipulation, and a daughter’s love for her father. Toni Anderson’s readers see her pull out all the stops as she writes the story of scientist Scarlet Stone seeking to prove her father’s innocence for a crime he did not commit. Twenty years earlier her father was tried and convicted for being a Russian spy.Each of Anderson’s Cold Justice series features new protagonists in eac [...]
Another hit in the Cold Justice series by Toni Anderson! I devoured the first two books in this series and then had to take a break. I didn’t mean for the break to be as long as it was. Psychological thrillers with a side of romantic suspense are my all time faves. However, after reading a few I have to take a break with total fluff and fun. Before I delve back into the thrillers, I have to make sure I have time to truly savor them. I dove back into the Cold Justice series with Cold Light of D [...]
This was the perfect fit to this box set. Not only do we see a fresh new couple and all the things they get in to, to save the one you’re trying to protect. But we get to see some of our old favorites, Alex and Mallory! Yay.Now FBI Special Agent Matt Lazlo bumps in to a pretty lady literally. He wants to see more of her. But it wasn’t meant to be… Or was it?Scarlett Stone is on a mission free her father from all charges before he passes. So she has a plan only the plan doesn’t go as plan [...]

When Scarlett needs saving, Matt and his [...]
I am really loving this seriesThis is the third bookeach book I become more invested in the characters that I meet.This book from the very first page is action packed. The story was filled with conspiracy, espionage and kept me guessing. I was floored when the revelation of the 'bad guys' was shown to me.I totally recommend this author, she really is awesome. Her voice in romantic suspense is becoming a new fave. So glad a friend turned me on to her books!!!!
Another excellent book in this series, really liked these 2 together
Probably not a good idea to plant a bug in the Russian Embassy. Yet Scarlet is running out of time. Her father was accused of espionage 14 years ago and now he has cancer. Time to prove his innocence. Her best friend Angel takes the invite her parents received and go to the Christmas Eve party at the Embassy. While there she meets Matt Lazlo, an FBI agent there in place of Frazer. They are smitten. Scarlet excuses herself and plants a bug, problem is when she turns the lamp over -there is alread [...]
Only started reading the Cold Justice series a few says ago and I've already finished book 3 n't get enough of this series!!!! Very hard to review this book without spoiling it but "Cold Light Of Day" tells the story if Scarlett Stone the daughter of notorious Russian agent accused of being a Russian spy but Scarlett is sure of his innocence and plants a bug in a light fixture while at a xmas party at the Russian ambassadors home but someone has beaten her to it and she is seen on video planting [...]
DNF 40%I haven't read a book with a heroine so TSTL in a while. And, tbh, I can sometimes handle that but what completely turned me off this book and made me quit was that she dragged her best friend (literally the only person who supported her through her family tragedy) into extreme peril and didn't even think twice about it. Oh, she was remorseful afterwards, but are you #$%@ kidding me??!! This woman is supposed to be a brilliant scientist but she's a naive child who clearly didn't think thr [...]
I love the theme of this one, freeing an innocent man accused of espionage and treason. I just wish Scarlet had been portrayed as a stronger character. I feel like all she did was freak out, apologize and go with the flow and that the only bravest thing she did what had occurred in the first chapter, after that nothing admirable. And Matt, he was not my favorite hero. I felt like all was done by Alex Parker (A Cold Dark Place) and the other guys, he was thoroughly distracted by his attraction to [...]
Another fabulous installment in the series. This author and this series have been fantastic thus far. This book was more mystery, action, thriller than it was romance but still the romantic part was sizzling. I was never a romance reader until I found this series that intriguingly captured the best of everything. I cannot put these books down. I have to keep reading. I have such desire and hunger to get through the stories. Still loving this series. Book 4, here I come.
Enjoyed the Cold Light of DayI found the characters believable and engaging. This is a spy story the kept me reading until the end. At first, I was not sure I was going to like it as the two young ladies seemed a bit sillybut then the action began and I kept coming back to my book to follow the action. I would recommend this book. Toni Anderson is now on my list of go-to authors.
GrippingI loved it the next chapter in the Cold series by Toni Anderson. There were so many twists and turns. Matt and Scarlett are explosive together. I also loved seeing Mallory and Alex more as well. I will continue to read this series and I highly recommend this book and series.
This is a perfect book to read when you want some crime drama but not the violence that often goes along with it. Instead, this book delivers naivety and complicated relationships while providing clues that lead to the ultimate revelation of who-dunit.
