Cold to the Bones by Cate Anderson, the first in a new series, is a psychological thriller that keeps you guessing until the end. This story is not for the faint of heart as it could quite easily cause nightmares.
On an archaeological dig, Rosie and Harry uncover a recent victim of a serial killer. Rosie is all too aware of what this killer is capable of as ten years ago Rosie was kidnapped off a street in her small town, viciously raped and attacked. Yet somehow she was able to escape before the killer could finish her off. With clues left at the burial site, Rosie knows that he is after her. There is so much to this story. The story explores and focuses on relations and how the people acquainted with the victim is affected and how it affects any future relationships; especially trusting someone enough to fall in love. Rosie is very strong, independent woman and refuses to be a victim. Fortunately for her, her friend Harry is a patient and strong man himself; willing to wait until Rosie is able to trust him and believe in them being together, forever. This story will have you on the edge of your seat as you follow Rosie and Harry exploring clues and assisting the police to stop the killer before he stops Rosie.
As scary as this psychological thriller was, I genuinely enjoyed reading it and had trouble putting it down. The story line was riveting, edgy and kept my attention to the very end. The characters pull me right into the story. There were a few red herrings causing me to wrongly guess who the killer was and I was definitely surprised when I found out. I highly recommend Cold to the Bones to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book prior to purchasing it.
I usually avoid any books involving serial killers, but I love everything Cate Anderson (aka, Serenity Woods and Hermione Moon) writes. Domestic thrillers are too gritty and realistically scary for me, but I am so glad that I read this wonderful book. The author brings her brilliant characterization and deftly nuanced emotions to this smart and scary thriller. The writing is very engaging and addictive. I found the story to be suspenseful and empowering. In addition, I could not figure out who the killer was. The storyline is completed in this book – no cliffhanger. The book definitely has triggers, especially involving sexual assault and getting locked in a crypt. I found the first chapter and a couple of later chapters to be scary and trigger-filled. The rest of the book is lighter, though there are some family drama and mature themes. Also, I love that all of the archaeology details are accurate because the author has an archaeology degree.
It is written solely from the perspective of the primary character Rosie Stone, an English woman who escaped from a serial killer when she was 17. The killer was never caught. Ten years later, Rosie is a successful osteoarchaeologist living in Exeter who avoids relationships and tries to live her life. When the serial killer strikes again and leaves a recently dead victim at Rosie’s excavation site, a key hanging on the body indicates that someone whom Rosie knows is the killer. She turns to her best friend Harry for support as she tries to stay alive and unmask the killer. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes dark domestic or psychological thrillers.
I LOVED this book. The author is in a group I’m in on Facebook and she posted for advice on the cover picture. She had given a synopsis of the book so we could pick which picture worked better and I thought “hmm I may have to give this one a try” so when she posted it was available for purchase, I immediately bought it! It took me a little bit to read it due to work and life in general but I’ve just finished it, and I just loved it! I hope that Rosie and Harry have more adventures!
I have been a long time Serenity Woods fan and I was not sure about reading a psychological thriller by the same author, writing as Cate Anderson, but I thought Cold to Her Bones was excellent. Character building and place setting have always been skills for this author and they are equally strong in this book. Tightly plotted with plenty of action and no dull filler or slow parts, the book sucks you in and sweeps you along.
Be warned that it is gory and in parts hard reading. It takes a very bleak view of people and of family relationships. However, it is definitely gripping and convincing. Like a previous reviewer I stayed up all night to finish it in one sitting because I just had to know how everything worked out.
Ooooh. I liked this story A LOT! I usually read multiple books at once (ebook, audiobook when driving, physical book at night) but I found myself uninterested in my other books and just wanted to see how this one would end! Super hard to put down. Plan some time away to read this thriller!
