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.
An unputdownable crime thriller with an ending you will never see coming, this is the latest gripping novel from bestselling author Carla Kovach. If you like Angela Marsons, Cara Hunter and Clare Mackintosh, you’ll love Her Last Mistake.
Thank you to bookouture for letting me take part in this tour and for my copy of this book via netgalley. I am a HUGE Gina Harte fan and I was very excited to dive back into this world. This is the 6th Gina Harte book but you could read them as a standalone. Personally I would recommend reading all the books so you can get a better understanding of some of the relationships.
Gina Harte has caught another terrible case. Holly Long has been found dead in her room at Cleevsford Manor. It’s her friend’s wedding reception. As always Gina throws herself into the case. She is determined and works herself to the bone trying to find the killer. Gina has been through a lot and each new case takes its toll too.
I feel for Gina’s daughter Hannah but I do think that she could be more understanding. I wish they could have a better relationship.
This case is full of suspects and dead ends. Gina has no evidence, too many suspects and more dead ends than a girl in (COVID-19) lockdown. Carla kept me on the edge of my seat right to the very end.
This was another excellent instalment of the Gina Harte series! I miss the characters already!
