The gripping new novel from the author of bestseller The Next Girl. Her Final Hour will have you hooked!

Melissa Sanderson is the perfect wife and mother. She dotes on her daughter and lives in her dream home in a quiet cul-de-sac in the suburbs.

But looks can be deceiving.

Something is amiss in that house - all the neighbors think so. Some say Melissa is having an affair. Others say she’s been drinking too much.

Then one night, sirens wake up the whole neighborhood.

Melissa Sanderson is dead.

An absorbing thriller with an ending you won't see coming! If you like Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza, or Clare Mackintosh, you’ll love this absolutely heart-stopping thriller from Carla Kovach.

Would not recommend

I liked the first book but a few hours into this one I had to finally stop because the story line started reading more like a bad slasher movie: when you start thinking how dumb a person has to be to go into the woods in the middle of the night by herself to.....I would have liked more intelligence. Not sure that I now want to buy the third one just the series.

A good page turner, but...

After recently reading the 1st book in the series as well, I'm hoping the 3rd in the series moves away from "the deranged and abusive man mentally and physically abuses and belittles the woman he claims to love, keeping her imprisoned" theme.

Thriller with interesting characters

I liked this book more than I thought I would. The detective (Gina) is tender with her own flaws. The storyline is interesting with some creepy characters.

Good story but...

The story was interesting, if predictable. I knew who did it after the second chapter. My biggest issue was the heroine, Gina Harte. She hasn’t got the sense God have a goose. It’s hard to believe her character is a ranking police officer who survived her 20s with her lack of self-protectiveness or common sense.

Two Very Enthusiastic Thumbs DOWN!

This was very predictable and there were no twists. If you like Lisa Gardner, you will be very disappointed with this book. If not for the narrator, I would have never made it to the end.

Hated to take breaks!

A multi faceted novel mixing the personal life of a detective, the search for a missing woman, as well as some of the story being told in the perspective of the kidnapper. An engaging listen

Disappointed

Okay so, what the heck? The storyline is so ridiculous and insufferable. I don’t know how I made it through the entire book. The narrator was irritating but I think that’s because of all the random characters she had to attempt. If I hear the word “gov” one more time I’m gonna scream. Don’t waste a credit.

Disturbing but great

Second in series. Gina Harte is tenacious and determined and totally embroiled in more ways than one. Ready for the next one!

So much tears

Tears are falling, meandering, dripping… Not a bad story, but read with a quivering voice the crying gets a bit tio much.

Narration spoiled a good story

Extremely annoying and unnecessary accents and overly pompus voices, totally unrealistic. Story was good and on that alone I'd keep reading but unless the narrator changes I won't

Very tense and thrilling

First book by this author and boy am I impressed. The subject was a bit tense for me and I nearly stopped but then the good guys started winning and off I went couldn’t put it down. Excellent narrator solid heroine and fantastic plot. Must read all the books.

Very Intense

More intense than I thought it would be. Like the first book, there are a LOT of characters to get to grips with, and a lot of suspense. Found it a bit too highly strung with not enough comfortable moments in between.

Also like the last one...the title seems completely unrelated. Sure, it could be tied into any part of the storyline, but it seems to almost be clickbait, as it doesn't really tell you about the story. To me, the title implies that something happened right before she died, however the story does not focus on that at all.

I enjoyed the read but personally feel a bit tired after listening to it.

A gripping novel

It is indeed an unputdownable thriller. Kept me riveted till the end. I read part of the book and listened to part of it. I recommend it highly. The only negative thing i could think of is that when the suspense unravels it does seem a bit unrealistic. But I could be wrong. There could be a lot of psychopaths out there who could resort to murdering people and mistreating women in the real world. All in all highly recommended reading!
