About this ebook

After two tours in Afghanistan, former Army Sergeant Holly Austin takes no prisoners, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a soft side. Even though HEARTS Agency already has a full caseload, she agreed to take on the case of Julia Fredrickson—a woman taken in broad daylight.


Detective Jack Tarek wouldn’t usually turn to an investigative service to help him solve a case, but when another woman goes missing, he is desperate to solve the case. Unfortunately, Holly doesn’t have much more information than Jack, but she definitely is a distraction—and one he can’t resist. The leads on their cases might be running cold, but the attracting between the investigators is sizzling hot.


When the missing women are found dead, Julia’s husband blames Holly and is determined to make her pay. And what better way than to take away the reason he thinks Holly didn’t find his wife—Jack. As the case drags on, those close to the investigation grow increasingly impatient for answers and blur the lines between victim and perpetrator. And when Jack vanishes without a trace, just like the women, Holly and the HEARTS team have only hours to find him.

**I voluntarily read an early copy of this title courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review** I have read several Marci Bolden books and I've enjoyed them all, but this is by far my favorite of what I've read. I was enthralled from the second I began reading and she kept me engaged and on the edge of my seat the entire way through. Holly Austin is a former Army Sergeant and heads up the team at the HEARTS agency. When she is hired to look into the disappearance of a woman, things take a turn when a second woman goes missing and she begins to see that there is a definite link between the two, but just what is it? Detective Jack Tarek comes to see out Holly when the second woman goes missing because she happens to be his mother's neighbor. He's been warned to stay out of it by his superiors at the police department, but he doesn't list and he and Holly begin working together to figure out what has happened to these women. Not only is the suspense in this book fantastic, but the growing feelings between Holly and Jack are equally as impactful. Holly is such a strong woman and she's awesome all on her own, but when she and Jack come together, they are a formidable pair. There is humor, romance, suspense and this storyline may feel all too real, but it was such a well told story. Kudos to Marci Bolden for a super strong start to this new series!

4.25⭐ Hidden Hearts was a well-paced, well written mystery. With a big dose of romance and really strong characters. And I was easily absorbed throughout. But especially when the investigation into the two missing women hit its peak. As for me, that's when it truly became a page turner. And with an interesting dynamic between the two lead characters, not to mention a detective agency solely run by women there was plenty to savour. And I'm excited to read more from this author and series in the future. Would happily recommend. **I was kindly provided with an ARC by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review**

About the author

As a teen, Marci Bolden skipped over young adult books and jumped right into reading romance novels. She never left. Marci lives in the Midwest with her husband, kiddos, and numerous rescue pets. If she had an ounce of willpower, Marci would embrace healthy living, but until cupcakes and wine are no longer available at the local market, she will appease her guilt by reading self-help books and promising to join a gym “soon.”
