Samantha stumbled out of the party and on to a busy street only ten minutes away from her home. But she never made it home…
Seven years after Samantha’s disappearance, on what would have been her thirty-fifth birthday, her best friend Diane is shocked to find a letter addressed to Samantha on her doorstep.
Opening the envelope, Diane pulls out a birthday card and a finger nail painted in dusky pink nail polish. The same shade Samantha always wore. The same shade she was wearing the night she went missing.
When police analyse the nail, they don’t get the result they expected. Instead of linking them to Samantha, the nail belongs to another woman, Jade Ashmore. And Jade was murdered the night before the envelope was delivered….
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour and for my copy of this book via netgalley. I have bee following Gina Harte’s books since the beginning and I couldn’t wait to see what happened in this next instalment.
This book became quite personal for Gina and it was interesting to see her open up a little more about her past. Gina has been to hell and back in her past but she survived and while she may not ever be over it she is a strong woman.
I won’t go into too much detail on the story but it was fascinating to see how some people live and how they are so very different in their personal and professional lives.
Carla once again had me on the edge of my seat. This book had some real heart-stopping moments. The last 20% I didn’t put the book down for anything because I just had to keep reading. My heart was racing.
I really enjoyed the epilogue of this book and I do hope that Gina will reconnect with her daughter at some point.
