Thank you to Thomas Mercer and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of the book in xchange for an honest review All the thoughts and opinions are my own Cold Woods is the second book in the Northampton series by Karen Katchur I read the first book last year because it took place not too far away from where I d gone to college years ago When I stumbled upon the second book in the series on NetGalley last week I immediately reuested the book as I d really njoyed the first one While the two book are part of a series you can Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential easily read them separately but as I always recommend read them in order to have the best possiblexperience The weather is often not a friend to crime Sometimes it distorts the time of death or covers a body for decades but at others it can be helpful for preservation of clues Katchur latches on to this theory and shares an xplosive suspenseful thriller about a 30 year old murder Everyone assumed the victim had just run off but the truth was hidden in the deep snowy woods along with two key clues and a myriad of problems Three women ach with a daughter Their husbands or fathers left years ago for various reasons The women helped Humanism each other but their daughters weren t sure what to do Onescaped Two stayed Of those two one accepted her fate and the other fought it Fast forward to the present when one of the mothers has passed away Then the dead body is discovered in the woods Who is he Who killed him What secrets are these six women hidingThe connection between the books is Detective Parker In the first book he fell for a witness and compromised the case Now they re together but something isn t working out properly He s afraid of screwing up again His new partner doesn t want to let it happen but she s got her own baggage As they investigate the case and learn to trust one another history might repeat itself somewhere along the way and it s usually not a good thing Wow What a roller coaster ride where I truly couldn t decide which of the six women killed the victim Even though one has recently died the story is told in two different time frames so we have a stronger picture of what happened back then All I can say is my gender is full of creeps I know stuff like this happens in reality and often it s so fictionalized we don t uite know truth from lie but honestly why are men often drunken idiots I m a happy drunk Not that occurs freuently but still I felt for the women in this story A single man had an Smokin' Hot effect on so many lives any one of them could ve been the culprit and I would believe it Ultimately the truth comes out but not necessarily to the right people I love those kinds of dramas when someone confesses to protect someonelse and It May Or May may or may be true When we finally get the full story it was highly satisfying kudos to Katchur for delivering a palpable seuel highly satisfying kudos to Katchur for delivering a palpable seuel kept me guessing the Placing Memory entire time I read the bookThere better be a third installment I m not hugely fond of the detectives but the author s writing style connections between characters minute focus on details witty yet troubling dialog and innate understanding of why people do the things they do all coagulate as a riveting story I couldn
