Publisher's Summary

The sun is shining, birds are chirping, and people are dying. Life is not always perfect in the town of Cold Hollow, but with Mayor Myrna Bradbury at the helm, it might be someday. When a batch of newly paroled convicts arrives to take up residence in the town, disappearances of longtime townsfolk begin, gruesome human remains are found, and a government inspection is looming on the horizon. Time is of the essence as Myrna and the new chief of police are thrust into an investigation the likes of which they had never imagined. Welcome to Cold Hollow, the place where the fun never ends.

Surprising twists that keep you guessing

This second in the Cold Hollow Mystery series continues the story of an experimental town where most of the residents are paroles. It can be read as a stand alone story but you will get more from this multilayered tale if you read Cold Hollow first. In this story, the arrival of new parolees coincides with the disappearance of local women, who are then found dead and wrapped in silk like a spider's cocooned prey. The story moves along at a good pace and the narration in the audiobook fits the characters well, giving each individual an easily recognizable voice and distinct personality. The plot is excellent and has some great unexpected twists thrown in. I love the characters in this series, they are well developed, interesting, quirky and full of surprises, even the "good" people can be unpredictable and creepy. This is a captivating "who done it" that will keep you guessing right up to the very end. I received the audiobook in exchange for my honest opinion.

Silk cocoon

This town is full of psycho people I would be afraid to sleep or turn my back on anyone including the good doctor and the mayor. Little Liam hopefully grows up to be normal. I highly recommend this book. Hope there is a third coming soon.

More twists than an Olive Tree

Superb listen. One that I will read more than once. The narration was spot on. Bringing the characters and the town to life. I could feel my anger rising at the injustice and found myself willing some of the victims to find a way to freedom.

The ending I just didn't see coming. I guarantee you'll enjoy this book.

Weaving the Web

Any additional comments?

I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

It was a good book, set five months after the end of Cold Hollow. It had a good plot, but I found the pacing difficult. It felt rather slow going until about half way when it kicked into high gear.
