Review: Cold Revenge by Catherine Cavendish

Synopsis (Goodreads):
For no apparent reason, Nadine, Maggie, Gary, and Nick are invited to dinner at the lavish home of top fashion writer, Erin Dartford. But why has she invited them? Why doesn't she want her guests to mingle? And just what is it about the mysterious Erin that makes them want to run for their lives?

Little do they know that as they prepare to eat their first course, an evil as old as mankind is about to be unleashed. And revenge really is a dish best served cold...
My Thoughts: This was one of those stories that snuck up on me.  It was nicely dark, moved quickly and kept me guessing as to what was going to happen right up to the end.  I like that.  I like when I'm making predictions in my head and they're all a little off.

Nadine, Maggie, Gary, and Nick's stories unfold in bits and pieces.  On the surface they all seem like upstanding folks who have great lives.  As their stories progress you begin to see that they might not be quite as good as they pretend to be.  Each one has something unsavory in their past that is coming back to haunt them.

Nicely written with interesting characters, this was a fun, creepy ride that was a perfect way to spend a damp, cold morning.

  3. This is on my 'to read' list over Christmas. There's nothing like a good creepy story at this time of year , I think, so I'm really looking forward to it. (I have nice bottle of red wine put aside for the occasion!)

  4. I loved Cold Revenge. Catherine writes in the great tradition of British ghost stories.

  5. Sounds like a good book. I wish I could read it; I don't have a Kindle.
