Cold Woods By Karen Katchur Serves Up Surprises and Shock

I LOVED reading Cold Woods by Karen Katchur. Still jolted by the spin and turns of the book.

Bones are found in a mountain, a cold case is reopened threatening to ruin the lives of many and all for a man who no one missed.

The residents on Second Street, in a small town in PA have moved on with life or more like have ran away from that harrowing night they have tried to forget.

Cold Woods is not just a cold case murder mystery. It’s deeper. The characters explore wounds that refused to heal, haunted by those painful memories from childhood, each faced off with a shattered relationship.

I really liked how the book went back and forth between past and present. It made for great storytelling and it showed how the pain of growing up changes us.

To me the book was especially interesting when it explored the friendship between Trisha, Dannie and Carlyn. Seeing them grow from innocent girls into fractured women was the best part of the book. The only part I didn’t care for was the detail technical terminology during the murder investigation.

Thank you to Amazon Publishing for providing me with the ARC.
