Review: The Book of Cold Cases

The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James

When I read a mystery, I usually want it to be rooted in reality. I find those to be the most “creepy” and interesting. However, I’m in a book club and one of the month’s picks was The Book of Cold Cases. This is a mystery, yes, but it also features aspects of the supernatural. I have to say that I ended up enjoying this a lot more than I thought I would. The supernatural was certainly there, but a lot of the mysteries were still pretty realistic. It was a nice mix for me!

I ordered my copy from Once Upon a Book Club because I figured having gifts to open as I read would be fun, in case I didn’t really love the book.

If you see my photos from Instagram, you can scroll to view the gift reveals. These were the three things I got to open while I read. There was even an audio snippet you could scan a code to listen to, and I LOVED.

  1. That’s a cool way to enhance your reading experience! I enjoyed the mystery in this one but didn’t really think the supernatural elements were needed. Having read multiple books by St. James, I feel like the spooky thing is her signature. Still, I wish it was omitted from this one.

  2. Aww, I’ve heard of Once Upon A Book Club — it sounds like a fun way to really enjoy a book! I really like reading historical fiction so I usually end up reading more books rooted in reality vs otherwise, but adding in the supernatural does put a nice spin on things too! I’ve always found that interesting too!
