Review: Cold Kiss
Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
What would you do to have one more day with someone you love?
Wren has always known that the women in her family were different. But, to speak of it was forbidden. When Wren’s boyfriend Danny dies, she goes to her Aunt Mari to try and get a handle on her abilities. Then with reading and research, Wren is able to bring Danny back. But he’s not quite the same as “her” Danny.
Honestly, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this story. I’ve discovered that I really don’t care for Zombie books and I was thinking that was what “Cold Kiss” would basically be. IT WASN’T! It was a love story. Who hasn’t thought about bringing any loved one back? I know I have! I can’t imagine what it would be like to be a teenager, losing my first love. Incredibly tough!
Wren is written so convincingly. As an adult, I can totally relate to her sense of loss and her wish to bring Danny back. She is full of complexity. She knows what she has done is wrong, but who can think straight while reeling from the sudden loss of the love of your life. Danny, in his undead way, brings Wren closure and helps her through the mourning process. If only we all could have that. In the end, “Cold Kiss”, reminds us that while losing a loved one is tragic, life does go on, which in it’s own way is hopeful.
