BRING THEM HOME. The first book in the new DS Karen Hart Series.
A perfect village. A perfect crime.
When two young girls disappear from their primary school, the village of Heighington is put on high alert—and not for the first time. Called in to investigate, Detective Karen Hart is sure that parallels with a previous disappearance are anything but coincidental.
DS Hart is still reeling from a case she tried and failed to solve eighteen months ago, when a young woman vanished without a trace. She’s no nearer to the truth of what happened to Amy Fisher, but with two children missing now too, the stakes have never been higher. As she looks to the past for clues, she must confront her own haunting loss, a nightmare she is determined to spare other families.
Hart soon realises that nothing in this close-knit Lincolnshire community is what it seems. Pursuing the investigation with personal vengeance, she finds herself in conflict with her scrupulous new boss, but playing by the rules will have to wait. Because while there’s no shortage of suspects, the missing girls are running out of time…
I found this book very easy to read and it has a great flow to the story.
The characters were very well developed and I loved their interaction. They make a great team and I definitely want to read more about them!
I loved the setting and the author has captured the area really well, you do feel immersed in the story and it was one of those books for me where I had read a lot more than I realised when I took a break. I finished the book the morning after I had started it the evening before.
Four and a half stars from me for this one, rounded up to five stars for Goodreads and Amazon – a thoroughly enjoyable read – very highly recommended!!
