Their Cold Hearts by Carla Kovach / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @CKovachAuthor

She shuts the door behind her, relieved to be in the safety of her own home. But tonight her house is the most dangerous place she could be. Someone has been waiting for her, and they know she’s home alone…Sasha loves her job finding accommodation for homeless people, and she’s proud of the small but cosy apartment she rents on the good side of town. She’s worked hard to leave her dark past behind her and make amends for the accident that still haunts her memories. She knows she was innocent, though she’s still careful about who and what she tells of her old life. But not all secrets stay hidden forever…When her phone rings loudly in the middle of the night, Sasha fears what she’ll hear when she picks up – a deathly silence. It’s happened every night for weeks. Is it a childish prank, or a chilling warning that someone has uncovered her secret?But the news of a body found at a local shelter means her worst nightmare has come true. It can’t be a coincidence that evidence related to the victim has been found at the same location where the most devastating moment of Sasha’s life took place.Days later, a second body is found and Sasha’s heart pounds wildly as she takes in the victim’s unforgettable green eyes. She hasn’t seen her in a long time, but she’d know her old friend anywhere. She was the only other person who knew Sasha’s secret, so how can Sasha prove her innocence now?Sasha doesn’t know who’s coming for her, but she’s certain of one thing: she’s next on the list…




When something has happend to you, something that has turned your world upside down, you want justice. that’s only natural. So you count on people who can help you with that: the police. When you get the strong feeling they are not really interested in what you have to say or don’t believe you, your world comes crashing down for a second time.

You cannot understand they cannot see what you see or is this case simply not strong enough for them to act? For you though it’s soemthing you will have to live with for the rest of your life while those who were responsible can go on as if nothing ever happened.

It makes you mad and when you see they keep on doing what they are without showing the slightest bit of remorse, some even realising they are throwing away the greatest gift they ever received by being selfish and showing no character at all. 

That when something inside you breaks…

I can understand the killer’s point of view.If nobody helps you, you feel the need to take the matter in your own hands. No the best solution, but I can see where they come from. I can also see the police’s point of view. Their hand are often tied and when there is no real proof , there is not a lot they can do. 

Sometimes guilty people do get what they deserve and does the legal system what is was made for. Unfortunately some slips through te meshes of the net…

A lot of heartbreak for some characters, but there are some bright lights at the end of the tunnel too. The killer was brutal, but they at least still had some warmth in their cold hearts unlike some others. 5 stars

Thank you
