About this ebook



What if your child went missing... and everyone thought it was your fault?


Julia Dawson’s daughter is gone. She knows everyone thinks Christina is dead; that people say Christina ran away to escape her controlling mother. But Christina would never do that, and Julia will never give up on finding her.


Christina was a difficult child. Short tempered and secretive, she didn’t get on with her new step-father. What Julia remembers most is the sun on her daughter’s shocking red hair, and the sound of laughter as she would talk for hours on the phone with her friends.


So when the broken body of a young girl is found and Julia is called in to identify her, she knows it isn’t her daughter.


But the girl is just like Christina, with the same pale skin and brilliant red hair.


Did this girl share a secret with Christina? If Julia finds out, could she get her daughter back?


AN ABSOLUTELY HEART-STOPPING CRIME THRILLER FROM CARLA KOVACH – if you like Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza or Clare Mackintosh, Her Pretty Bones will have you hooked.

The is the third instalment of the Gina Harte series and like the others in the series, this is another excellent instalment. The quality of her writing is always consistent. I have loved them all. Toby is driving along Laurel Lane, listening to the Ace of Spades in his car, when a door of a van opens ups in front of his car and a girl falls out of the van. Toby breaks, thinks she has killed her. He calls for an Ambulance and she is rushed to hospital. The girl is really ill, very thin and she has a wound in her side and her fingertips are burnt off. Gina Harte is the Senior investigation officer on the case. Who is this girl and why is she in the state she is in? Then, another girl is found on a development site, dead, buried in a shallow grave. Are these two deaths related? This is another gripping instalment of this series, told in several points of view that come to an inclusion in the end. The story also continues about Gina still healing from what happened after her last case. She is still fragile, but with her determination she still wants to find the perpetrators of this case. This story has great characters, great story line, which can be gritty in parts but I loved it. I will wait in anticipation for the next one.

My 3rd book by this author. I enjoyed it but had to reread paragraphs to understand some of it, go back and then start again this was disappointing. The bones of the stories are fab but something gets lost in the middle for me.

Interesting book, winding plot a good variety of characters. I felt a lot of empathy for the heroine Gina. Some of the story was difficult to follow with all the characters and story lines going on, but it all tied together in the end.
