IF YOU ONLY READ ONE BOOK THIS YEAR, MAKE IT THE NEXT GIRL...

You thought he’d come to save you. You were wrong.

Oh my goodness! This was gripping and fast moving from page one.’ Southern and Sassy Wine Lady, 5 stars

Deborah Jenkins pulls her coat around her for the short walk home in the pouring rain. But she never makes it home that night. And she is never seen again…

Four years later, an abandoned baby girl is found wrapped in dirty rags on a doorstep. An anonymous phone call urges the police to run a DNA test on the baby. But nobody is prepared for the results. 

The newborn belongs to Deborah. She’s still alive...

THE GRIPPING THRILLER EVERYONE’S TALKING ABOUT – if you like Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza or Clare Mackintosh, you will absolutely love this. A completely unputdownable page-turner with an ending that will blow your mind.

**Each Gina Harte book can be read as part of the series or as a standalone**

    My heart pumped and hands trembled constantly. Couldn’t put it down. The ONLY reason I’m not immediately starting the next volume is because I need a little breather after this bad boy. (Trigger warning if you’re an abuse surviver. Parts were difficult to read.)

    Great characters, well written, and full of suspense. Not an especially original plot, but fun to read. I’m ready to dive into her next one.
  • Nail biting!

    What’s the deal with every male character “sobbing” literally on every single page of this book? It gets pretty annoying and cringe worthy by a 1/3 of the way in. If you’re looking for a strong, kickass male character then this read is most definitely not your cup of tea...
  • Good to a point

    This is a good read. Characters are interesting, the story moves along. I did find the mother-daughter conflict a little draggy, as I did with the guilt factor with the husband. I think both those areas could’ve been done a little better. All in all it was a good read. I’m not sure if I’m going to finish out this series, I just found it not as suspenseful as it was built up to be. I liked it, however it just didn’t grip me as much as I had hoped. I give it three stars.
