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.

Two Very Enthusiastic Thumbs DOWN!

This was very predictable and there were no twists. If you like Lisa Gardner, you will be very disappointed with this book. If not for the narrator, I would have never made it to the end.

Addictive

I love this book. I love the narrator voice. And most importantly detective Gina Hart.
This is the type of book you can’t stop listening to.

I can’t wait for book #3!!

Big Gina Hart fan

Another fantastic Gina Hart mystery. This one I could barely put down. Great characters and an amazing story. My only issue was a bit of frustration with some of the characters actions. It made the story move along but at times it was downright foolish. But otherwise a great novel.

Hated to take breaks!

A multi faceted novel mixing the personal life of a detective, the search for a missing woman, as well as some of the story being told in the perspective of the kidnapper. An engaging listen

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.

excellent

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.
