    2.0 Stars Cold Waters by Debbie Herbert was another Kindle First selection that I finally got around to reading between books by established and better thriller authors After showing some early promise, I really wish I would have left this one on the shelf Cold Waters tells the story of Violet who returns home after several years of mental health treatment to live with her somewhat senile father and manipulative, spoiled sister, Delaney The book is primarily written from the perspective of Violet, who turns out to be frustratingly gullible and allows herself to be bullied mercilessly The plot is fairly decent for a while as we learn the reasons for Violet s mental health issues is 1 her possible involvement in her best friend s death as a teenager and 2 her inability to recall the details surrounding this event But as the book continues, the story implodes with ridiculous twist after ridiculous twist I...

    Wow To say that I like Southern Noir is an understatement and when it done well, it knocks my socks off Cold Waters, my First Reads selection for March knocked it out of the park and into the parking lot beyond This is one amazing chilling, twisty, dark book When Violet was 14 years old, tragedy struck in the town of Normal, Alabama and the town blamed Violet for its loss A young girl vanished without a trace, the last person to see her was Violet, who was found wandering in the forest where the two often explored and went skinny dipping in the murky lake that ran through town After being declared psychologically unwell, in a fugue state, Violet was sent to the state mental hospital Now she has returned to Normal, in ways than one, to claim her meager inheritance left to her by her mother, and to help her sister care for her father But the town has not forgotten that fateful day and nothing in Normal is quite normal at all.As Violet attempts to recall the tragic events surrounding the night that her best friend died, it appears that someone is making sure she is unable to do so even it means she loses what little hold she has on her fragile thread of sanity The characters that surround Violet, generally, are the most vile characters I ve run across in literature in a long while but, they are as realistic as I have encountered as well I felt as if I knew each and every one of them They are the people who border on sociopathy, and some who are outright psychopaths, w...

    Cold Waters by Debbie Herbert is the first book of the new Normal, Alabama series This one is a thriller that is told from multiple points of view throughout and then also different timelines.Violet is the central character of this first book of this series with the biggest point of view in the book Violet has just returned to Normal, Alabama to live with her father and step sister after being away for over a decade, most of which was spent in a mental health care facility.Years earlier Violet had been found wandering the woods in a state of shock and her best friend, Ainsley, was found dead Many think Violet had murdered Ainsley and she herself isn t even sure of what happened that night but she s back to confront the past.One thing I found out very early on with Normal, Alabama was that it really seemed to be lacking anyone actually normal I had some suspicions early on but spent a lot of time guessing as this dark thriller played out I do think it went a little...

    Violet returns to Normal, Alabama after 11 years away She returns to claim her inheritance from her deceased mother s estate and help her sister take care of their ailing father Violet left town after her friend Ainsley went missing The locals believe Violet killed Ainsley, and now with Violet s return home, they believe the truth will finally be revealed.When Violet was 14 years old, she and Ainsley met up for a late night swim That night, Violet was found confused and wandering the woods Ainsley was never found Violet has been in a psychiatric facility ever since Violet doesn t remember the events of that night, but the locals believe she got away with murder Coinciding with Violet s return home is the draining of the lake where Ainsley went missing With speculation being that Ainsley s body may finally be found, Violet is haunted by her past and the occasional flashback of what happened that night.This book is partly mystery about what happened to Ainsley and partly family drama There is a lot of drama happening in Violet s life She and her sister are not on good terms Her father health is failing and his behavior is odd Violet was close to her mother, b...

    I have terrible luck with First Reads Books I didn t hate COLD WATERS as much as I have previous months choices, but I didn t like it either.Violet s friend Ainsley disappears and Violet is suspected of her murder She spends years in a psychiatric hospital and is now back in Normal, Alabama to help her awful sister care for their father who has dementia.COLD WATERS is filled with unsavory characters from liars to mean girls women to sociopa...

    One of the worst books I ve ever readI chose this as the free kindle book and it was hugely disappointing The story line was absurd and the characters were poorly developed Huge waste of my time Don t bother reading it.

  8. Kat Brownell says:

    I just wasnt that into it I was all set to give it a 3, until near the end, when it turns out that every character is either a murderer, covering up a murder, protecting a murderer, concealing evidence, planting evidence, framing innocent people, di...

    This Does Alabama NO FavorsBless this author s heart, she wrote a book I m sure exacted enormous amounts of effort, time, and determined hopes from her, and the most charitable thing I can say is So THAT happened It s pretty awful.Every sordid stereotype of inbred Alabama dysfunctional society cra...
