Publisher's Summary

Anything can happen behind closed doors....

The gripping new novel from the author of bestseller The Next Girl. Her Final Hour will have you hooked!

Melissa Sanderson is the perfect wife and mother. She dotes on her daughter and lives in her dream home in a quiet cul-de-sac in the suburbs.

But looks can be deceiving.

Something is amiss in that house - all the neighbors think so. Some say Melissa is having an affair. Others say she’s been drinking too much.

Then one night, sirens wake up the whole neighborhood.

Melissa Sanderson is dead.

An absorbing thriller with an ending you won't see coming! If you like Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza, or Clare Mackintosh, you’ll love this absolutely heart-stopping thriller from Carla Kovach.

Would not recommend

I liked the first book but a few hours into this one I had to finally stop because the story line started reading more like a bad slasher movie: when you start thinking how dumb a person has to be to go into the woods in the middle of the night by herself to.....I would have liked more intelligence. Not sure that I now want to buy the third one just the series.

Thriller with interesting characters

I liked this book more than I thought I would. The detective (Gina) is tender with her own flaws. The storyline is interesting with some creepy characters.

Male bashing

Read the first book and it was pretty good but this one just went over the top with male bashing. She gave the impression that women with conservative ideals who choose to stay home and be mothers and homemakers are controlled and abused.

Took a bit for it to come together, but good overall

I enjoyed this book, but I also felt like it took too long for all of the moving parts to come together. At the beginning, I was so confused about who all of the people were in each chapter. I liked The Next Girl a little better. Will be on the lookout for future releases by this author.

keeps you on the edge of your seat

another epic novel in the series that has you glued to each page from beginning to end. Characters are growing with the series and it is exciting what the next installment might reveal about them all.

So gripping!

This book was interesting from beginning to end. The only thing I wish this author would do is at the end when they find the killer or killers is go into detail how distraught they are for being such horrible people!! and for getting what they deserve! I love this author but I do feel that the endings are kind of rushed. still a great book and worth the read!

This book is written in such a way, it's very easy to picture the scenes.
I could not stop listening, parts kept me on the edge of my seat.
the narrator is excellent too, has different voiced for each character.
