About this ebook

Some lies won’t stay buried forever…

Cherie sees the anger on her husband’s face. She’s late home from work. Again. He’s always like this when she doesn’t call, and she’s scared he wouldn’t believe her even if she could tell him the truth.

‘I called in to see Mum on the way home.’

Cherie didn’t visit her mum, but she can’t say where she’s been. It’s a secret that, if told, could ruin the lives of everyone around her. But recently somebody has started sending her messages. Somebody knows what Cherie has done and they’re ready to tell.

When a body of a young man, connected to Cherie’s past, is found in a shallow grave in a nearby woodland, she is certain the killer is sending her a message. And when her closest school friend then goes missing, her worst fears are realised. Someone wants revenge and they’re going to do everything they can to get it.

If you like Angela Marsons, Cara Hunter and Clare Mackintosh, you’ll love this heart-racing thriller from bestselling author, Carla Kovach. With gripping suspense and a twist you won’t see coming, Their Silent Graves will have you hooked from page one.

I went into this knowing that it was book seven in a series, but all my research lead me to believe this could be read as a stand-alone book. My research was right, and it is a book I really did enjoy! It starts with two horrific scenes from the past: A coffin maker sees his friend lock his wife in the shed after one of his regular wife beatings. A teenage girl, new to town, is buried alive in a coffin after attending a party. We then cut to two teenagers on their way to a Halloween party who decide to cut through a wooded field as a shortcut. They come across a bell stuck in a tree branch. Attached to it is a piece of rope and they decide to follow it. They come across a freshly dug grave and after digging hit the top of a coffin... Detective Gina Harte is on the investigation of the victim who was buried alive in a coffin. She soon realizes she had an encounter with the victim just a day or two before. The idea that the victim was buried alive also brings up anxiety about her own past. We also meet Cherie. Cherie is a mess. She is back to her drinking ways, trying to navigate marriage and motherhood while secretly becoming an alcoholic again. The Halloween holiday is not helping her mental chaos, as it seems to be the trigger of her downward spiral. To top it all off, her childhood friend has gone missing, and her old high school crew are being vague yet weirdly worried about what could have happened to their missing friend. This book alternates perspectives and it really kept me on my toes. Though I did have hard time keeping track of characters at the beginning, it didn't take me long to keep everyone straight. The author did a wonderful job setting scenes and building on the characters. This book is full of mysterious twists and suspenseful turns. I kept trying to figure out what exactly all the characters had that connected them to this grizzly murder and it wasn't until the end that I finally put it all together. I am so glad I read "Their Silent Graves" by Carla Kovach because I truly enjoyed every word and I plan on reading books 1-6! I cannot wait to dive into this series! "Their Silent Graves" is being released September 17, 2020 here in the U.S. and I suggest ordering it now! A 5-star read for me! Thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for allowing me an eARC to read and give my honest review! Happy Reading!

I'm sorry but she really needs to get over killing Terry. It's starting to grate on me that this old chestnut keeps running heavily through every book. Time to get over the guilt trip. He's dead - good riddance - move on!!
