Cold Woods by Karen Katchur
Returning home and being told by your mother that you shouldn’t have come back is where we meet Trisha.
Trisha came back after 30 years because they found the bones of Lester, her step father, and bones that she and her neighbors and friends had something to do with.
Lester was not a good man, and Trisha still hated him to this day. All he did was cause trouble for her.
We go back and forth as Trisha’s life as a child and as an adult is described. Her childhood wasn’t a pleasant one and neither was her life as an adult.
The main focus is the investigation of the murder of Lester both past and present. As the investigation moves ahead, the tension increases and secrets are revealed.
COLD WOODS addresses some social issues and life styles that affect the behavior of the characters as well as upsetting, abusive situations.
Readers who enjoy a mystery whose killer you think is known from the start and those who enjoy getting to see the investigation unravel, will want to take a look at COLD WOODS.
You will be guessing and most likely guessing incorrectly until the end...the ending has a great twist and surprise. 4/5
This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.
