BLOG TOUR - Their Cold Hearts


She shuts the door behind her, relieved to be in the safety of her own home. But tonight her house is the most dangerous place she could be. Someone has been waiting for her, and they know she’s home alone…

Sasha loves her job finding accommodation for homeless people, and she’s proud of the small but cosy apartment she rents on the good side of town. She’s worked hard to leave her dark past behind her and make amends for the accident that still haunts her memories. She knows she was innocent, though she’s still careful about who and what she tells of her old life. But not all secrets stay hidden forever…

When her phone rings loudly in the middle of the night, Sasha fears what she’ll hear when she picks up – a deathly silence. It’s happened every night for weeks. Is it a childish prank, or a chilling warning that someone has uncovered her secret?

But the news of a body found at a local shelter means her worst nightmare has come true. It can’t be a coincidence that evidence related to the victim has been found at the same location where the most devastating moment of Sasha’s life took place.

Days later, a second body is found and Sasha’s heart pounds wildly as she takes in the victim’s unforgettable green eyes. She hasn’t seen her in a long time, but she’d know her old friend anywhere. She was the only other person who knew Sasha’s secret, so how can Sasha prove her innocence now?

Sasha doesn’t know who’s coming for her, but she’s certain of one thing: she’s next on the list…

Fans of Angela Marsons, Cara Hunter and Clare Mackintosh will love Their Cold Hearts – a totally thrilling and addictive crime thriller that will have you up all night!

Detective Gina Harte is very much looking forward to spending some one-on-one time with her granddaughter Gracie while her daughter Hannah is away. However, when she is called about a murder scene, she is torn. She already knows this will cause friction between her and Hannah, but she quickly decides to focus on the case, leaving Gracie in capable hand. 

A homeless man has been found murdered. Sadly, he is not the only one and soon there is a second victim. Gina and her team work quickly to find the connection between the two. All while Gina and her team are working hard to try and determine who is preying on the homeless, she has other issues that are crowding her thinking. Meanwhile, there are other characters in this latest book in an exciting series that play a role as to what is happening. There is Sasha, a concerned social worker. Then there is a teen named Marcie, a true crime podcaster who will go to any lengths to be involved in the case. 

What another exciting book Carla Kovach has gifted to her readers! The tension never lets up, especially when Gina works hard at juggling all the aspects of her life while the author shines a spotlight on the sad plight of the homeless. I couldn’t tap the screen on my Kindle fast enough as I was trying to guess the killer. Ms. Kovach has always snagged my attention with Gina and this series, while always leaving me more than eager for the next book in this stellar series. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
