She’s just the girl he’s looking for…

A young woman falls from a van speeding down a quiet road. Battered and bruised, she turns her head to the person who comes to her aid. ‘Help her’, she whispers before her eyes close.

Days later, the body of another young girl is found in a shallow grave just a few miles away. The similarities between the two girls are startling – same age, same frail body, same shocking red hair.

As the town fears there’s a serial killer living amongst them, Detective Gina Harte must put aside her own struggles at home, and catch the killer before he finds another perfect girl.

Happy Publication Day Carla!!

My Review

This is the third book in the series, I read the second one last year and I was a bit hazy on the storyline this time but when you delve back in I was reminded quite promptly of the characters and what happened. I hold my hands up I have brought the first book but I still need to read it. (Don’t shoot me!)

So DI Harte is thrown back into a new case after the events of the last book. Only just finishing her therapy, is this really the best thing to do? Her relationship with her daughter is still fraught and tempers flare. But nothing matters whilst trying to save the red hair girls!

As you all know I am a book cover hoe and this one drew me in straight away! It was only after I realised it was a Carla Kovach book and the next book of Gina I got really excited!

I try not to rehash the plot when I write my reviews but try and convey in my limited vocabulary my thoughts about the book. Plus it is hard not to divulge too much without giving anything away. This time despite spending most of my life wanted to be a redhead like the boy I’m glad I’m not!! Moving on!

You have Gina, trying to put a stop to the killings before anymore happen. A girl called Mikey caring for an older lady waiting for her next fix. Then, Christina, her daughter has gone missing months before, and she is trying to find her and answers. All woven together in this intense read. Sometimes I found myself a bit confused about who was doing what and when but once I told myself to get a grip the reading was thrilling. It adds to all the twists and turns and to the exciting conclusion. The characters are well developed and you feel like part of the team.

I do love reading a book where you are on edge and fear time will run out and this one is no different. Will Gina and team be able to solve the crimes before it happens again?!

Until next time xxx
