My Review

Never has that saying, ” hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” echoed more loudly. Dumped by her husband for a newer, younger model, Pam is reluctant to oblige her ex-husbands death bed request to come visit him.

She rethinks this when she realizes it’s the perfect opportunity to dish out a little of the cold dish called revenge.

Ah, what a sordid, deliciously evil tale of what goes around comes around.  Yeah, I know. A lot of cliches here. But they fit this little tale so well.

When Fatal Attraction first aired at the cinema. I bet a whole lot of men thought twice about incurring a woman’s wrath. Too bad Pam’s ex didn’t. How this all plays out is so dark and dirty, yet it had me rubbing my hands in glee. I’m team Pam!

For all of you fans of Karin’s books and in need of a fix, I highly recommend you treat yourself to this short, wicked morsel.

4 Stars



First comes love.

Then comes marriage.

Then comes revenge.

In this sensational short story from the bestselling author of The Kept Woman and Pretty Girls, fifty-two-year-old Pam has done her utmost as a loyal wife to her now ex-husband John. He dropped her cruelly . . . but with a terminal illness about to claim his life, Pam now sees an opportunity to settle the score, in a way that no one—not their children, not her ex, and certainly not the reader—will see coming . . .

Surprising, suspenseful, and diabolically clever, Cold, Cold Heart offers old fans and new readers alike a taste of the writer Gillian Flynn calls “one of the finest crime novelists at work today.”

  1. Never tried this author though I have one of her books. Would this be a good one to try since I haven’t read the author?


  2. Oh yeah. My kind of book. :-)
