Cold Hearts by Sharon Sala

There's only one way to keep secrets buried…

If only it had been something else that brought Lissa Sherman and Mack Jackson back in touch after so many years. Something—anything—other than the murder of Mack's father. Even worse, Lissa's car had been used as the murder weapon.

Thirty-five years ago, four friends went out joyriding and ended up in a terrible accident that left one dead and the others with no memory of that awful night. Now two more people, including Mack's father, have been murdered, and if the lone survivor knows why they're being targeted, she's not talking.

Even as Lissa and Mack find themselves drawn together in the midst of tragedy, the mystery deepens when someone comes after Lissa, too. Is the danger to her tied to the other deaths, or are two killers at work in town? Now Mack has to fight an unknown attacker as well as his feelings for Lissa, but it may be that he can't win either battle.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Cold Hearts gives us two mysteries and a romance. The first mystery, which spans the 3 books in the trilogy, is who is killing off members of the 1980 graduating class. The second mystery is who is stalking Lissa. The two mysteries come together to provide a second chance at love for Lissa and her high school boyfriend Mack.

This is the story that is written from a variety of points of view. We get Lissa and Mack's point of view as well as a host of others including the stalker, the killer and the cop investigating both mysteries.

From the mystery side of things I loved the changing view points. It had me sucked in and I wanted to see what everyone was up to and how it all fit together. From a romance perspective though the changing view points didn't work as well because I didn't really get attached emotionally to any of the characters. Mack and Lissa’s story is emotional and ultimately lovely but I just didn't feel it.

Cold Hearts is the second book in Secrets and Lies trilogy and I look forward to reading book 3, Dark Hearts to find out what happens next.
