After two torn ACLs and a narrow escape from her would-be rapist, Allie Stevens is finally on the mend. She's a captain on her college track team, maintains a decent GPA, and has a bright future ahead as a molecular biologist. Her troubled years in high school are finally being put behind her. She's even got a boyfriend, Logan, a handsome swimmer with a heart of gold and plenty of patience for a girl as skittish about her body as Allie is. 

But when Logan disappears from her life and resurfaces on the news as high profile (formerly) missing person, Allie learns that a single mistake has stolen the happily ever after she's dreamt of. Rather than live a life of regret, she chooses to risk it all and head across Atlantic for what she hopes is a fairytale ending. 

What she finds instead is a chilly island, a stolen masterpiece and -if she can survive the unrelenting Arctic- the chance to fall in love again. 

Run Cold is an examination of a girl's transition into adulthood and the challenges she faces as she sheds her teenage concepts of love, life, and self identity. It's a fairytale with a modern heroine who doesn't have magic at her disposal, only a courageous heart.

I don't know if I should be intrigued or scared:)
                              Starting with  a quote is so different  and effective, it catches the readers attention. Love it!!

Nice foreshadowing leaving readers wondering what tragedy has occurred.  I would make this longer though.  Two sentences doesn't make sense to me but maybe it's a form of Prologue to set the tone of your story.  Take all I say with a grain of salt as I'm no expert critic.

HI!  A well design intro where many should see how in so few words you let readers know how their reading and voting etc. also helps the author.
