Publisher's Summary

Dressed in a sage green bridesmaid dress, and smiling for pictures, Holly is the happiest she’s ever been. Hours later, Holly is dead.

People love to hate Holly Long. Smart, beautiful, and a woman who men find it hard to say no to, she’s the town’s most gossiped-about resident. 

Now Holly’s body lies in her hotel room, strangled at her best friend’s wedding party. And the gossip has stopped, because nobody wants to look like they did it. 

When police search Holly’s immaculate apartment, amongst her stylish furnishings and expensive jewellery, they discover a different side to Holly. Orderly and precise, she wasn’t the chaotic party girl everyone thought her to be. In fact, Holly was a planner, and her next plan was to come out and tell her biggest secret - something she had been hiding for months, something that had the potential to ruin the lives of more than one wedding guest. 

There are plenty of people who might have wanted to kill Holly, but only one who has finally made good on their promise. 

A crime thriller with an ending you will never see coming, this is the latest gripping novel from best-selling author Carla Kovach. If you like Angela Marsons, Cara Hunter, and Clare Mackintosh, you’ll love Her Last Mistake.

Loved it. Starting her series from book one today. Great for taking my mind off walking, which allows me to walk more miles.

Excellent

Oh, Gina! Tormented by years of domestic abuse and its aftermath still. She throws herself into her work and her relationship with her daughter seems to suffer. But she’s a tenacious detective and gets stuff done.

She and the team are called to a wedding reception where a bridesmaid has been murdered. Things get worse and we’re brought along on a race to find the killer(s?) before another friend can be harmed.

There are plenty of suspects and I was sure I had it figured out. Wrong! I love books like this.

I’m glad we get the old gang back on Gina’s team. Will Gina keep rejecting the obvious attraction between her and Briggs? The next book should reveal that.

I have read (listened to actually) all the Gina Harte series and each book is fantastic. Carla Kovach is one of my automatic pre-order authors. Narrator, Alison Campbell, does a great job.

Worth a listen; I’ve heard better.

Another British whodunnit kept my attention, though there were parts where the plot slowed down and dragged a bit here and there. Author Carla Kovach brings forth an unusual murder mystery. Narrator Alison Campbell? Well, she did a proficient job. Worth a credit? I am happy to have gotten this one during an Audible sale at $3+. Perhaps it was me. As my editor, dear friend and mentor wisely told me in 1979, “If everyone liked the same things, the world would indeed be a boring one.” RIP Dan Di Leo

Contains spoilers

I normally love this author, however the ending of this one was pretty disappointing. The killer is who? Exactly — you basically meet them in the last two chapters. Does not add much to Gina’s story so I would skip if I could do it again.

ANOTHER AMAZING BOOK

What can i say about all of the DI Gina Harte series of books written by Carla Kovach ..

Each one has you hooked from start to finish and this again was not a let down .. Infact I had no clue till the very very end which when a detective book can do that , then you just know its good ..

I like to keep guessing and see how Gina and her team work through things .. go through issues she has in her private life , which I think any mother can understand ..

Please keep these books coming Carla .. If I could give each star rating 10/10 I would .. but for me its the full 5 stars all the way

Brilliant

I’ve listened to all the Gina Harte series and this was another brilliant listen. I didn’t want it to end.

Carla Kovach draws you in and puts in lots of red herrings so you never know who is the killer is. We’ve also got the ongoing background story of Gina Harte which is intriguing.

I’d also like to say how great the narrator Alison Campbell is at doing her accents.

Can’t wait until the Autumn for the next instalment x

Not my favorite out of the ‘Gina Harte series’

I’ve listened to these books from the first one and have to say this was my least favourite. I find they get less interesting the more she writes! I absolutely loved the first and second book. Now I find that I’m getting tired of listening to Ginas ‘troubled relationship’ with her daughter and her ‘on/off’ relationship with Briggs! It’s kinda getting boring!!!! Having said all that I will listen to the final book and see what it’s like but this story just didn’t do it for me! Found it too mundane!

It became really good

This book started well, then I felt like it dragged for a while. I was wrong though. It was merely covering what it needed to before it became really gripping right up to the very satisfying ending.

Excellent Storyline

Another great story, loved it! But,why oh why does the narrator try to make Gina Harte out to be a rude arrogant person when she dishes out orders. It’s always at the wrong time and sounds so forced and rude, really turns me off. If the writer wasn’t so good, I would send the books back unfinished, as soon as my nerves started to grate.

Another good one in the series

I thought I had the killer worked out BUT of course it was a red herring! At the rate I'm reading these, I don't think the author will keep up...don't know what I'll do then lol
