The next girl. A good read I couldn’t wait to find out what happened!!

Gripping. The first of many in the series, a very good read and so gripping. Having read a few in the series now I really enjoy her style and method of writing, not to mention the stories themselves. I have now finished the fifth and is just as good as the first. Brilliant author.

Good. It was nice for there to be a happy ending

Must read!. Hooked until the end, couldn’t put this down!

Needs another proofread but exciting all in all. The book in itself was pretty good, enjoyed the plot and some of the characters but some sections felt rushed, with some bits not reading well and a slip up on a characters name once or twice which took me out of it a bit. Still think it’s worth the read but definitely not for the faint hearted.

Unputdownable. I don’t usually read this type of book but found this spellbinding. Read it in 2 days as I couldn’t put it down.

The next girl. The best crime novel I have read to date. The novel has you gripped right from the very beginning putting you almost in a trance as all’s you can think about is the book, so much so I’ve finished it in less than 24 hours! The way that the author makes it so there is so many different ways one thing can go and leaves you edging to know the outcome and the rollercoaster of emotions that they cleverly put you through, it is just absolutely phenomenal! It is a masterpiece!

Gripping read. I enjoyed this book a lot, it kept me gripped and wanting to know more throughout so made for a quick read. Not my favourite so far from this series (I have been reading them in the wrong order, and so far ‘her pretty bones’ is my favourite with the most twists and turns in my opinion). However, it makes for a good read and an exciting ending!

Gripping book. Had me gripped from the beginning, you felt ‘right there’ with the characters. Starting the next one in the series and looking forward to the read.

The Next Girl. Loved this book I couldn’t put it down

What a storyline. This book grabbed me and pulled me in really quickly. Full of suspense but also human emotion and well developed characters. Thoroughly recommended.

Brilliant read. Well done Carla was a really hooking book and haven’t put it down read the whole story in 24 hours lol. Can’t wait to read the next one.

Keeps you guessing!. Great read, love Gina’s character. Gritty and suspenseful! Can’t wait to read book 2

One of the best books I’ve read. One of the best books I’ve read!! Can’t wait to read the rest of them

Had my heart racing. My New Year’s resolution was to start reading and my god this was a great way to start. This book had me gripped from page 1 and at times had my heart racing. I’ve already downloaded the next in the series.

Holiday reading. A great book to read by the pool. Will definitely read the next in the series

Good read, disappointing ending.. The story had me hooked from the off, so much detail, however the ending was very quick, I was left disappointed and there was to many unanswered questions.

The next girl. Best book I’ve read in ages!! Couldn’t put it down! Highly recommended. Look forward to reading the next book in this series 👍

Good story. I enjoyed the book but just could not stand how much reference there was to the detective & officer having colds & too much detail about nose blowing & spitting lol. I like to enjoy a cuppa & read but had to drink first or I’d be put off. I thought the amount of times it was referred to & detail was so weird. Just bizarre. Good read if you’re not put off by that kind of thing

Gripping, shocking and thrilling!. I was hooked from the very start. Finished it in 2 sittings. DI Gina Harte is my new fav!

Real page turner!!. I was gripped from start to finish. Would highly recommend. Will certainly be reading more from this author! Kerry

Well written detective thriller. An introduction to Gina Harte, another welcome detective series. The scenario is unusual and the tension builds up, with scenes flipping between the investigation and past events. Even as the resolution approaches, it’s still not certain how it will all turn out, which keeps you reading to the end.

Unputdownable. Read this over two days, fantastic thriller.

Fantastic book. Started reading 3 days ago and have just finished it today. Gripping and exciting. Cannot wait to read the rest of the detective series!

Couldn’t put it down!!. One of the best books I’ve read in a while!!

The next girl. Brilliant!! Couldn’t put this down x

Great reas. Couldn’t put the book down, really enjoyed it

A fantastic page turning read. I could not stop reading at any point, leading to many hours of turning pages and anticipating the next surprise. A truly fantastic read, definitely wanting to read the rest of the series now! :)

Great read. Loved this book so much

Ok. Good story, just found a few things a little hard to believe..but finished the book.

Easy read. I have not read a book for years & I finished this over two days. Simple story, easy to read & keep up with the characters & story line. Wish more had been given to the ending. I enjoyed it but looking for a more challenging read.

Couldn’t put it down!!!. 5*

Amazing. I love a good detective book and honestly I’ve read all 4 books in this series in the past week and have loved each and every chapter of them! Highly recommend these books to anyone! Amazing.

The Next Girl. 5 Stars ... Couldn’t put it down. Gripped me from the moment I picked it up. A very interesting concept that builds with intensity until the very last page. I’ve downloaded the rest of the series already!

4/5. Kept me on tender hooks until the end.

Extremely slow. Overall,I found the book amazing,except for at times when Debbie managed to get away but then Jeff found her,the author put too many chapters in between the next scene of Debbie to write about Gina interviewing people linked to Debbie’s disappearance even though they have very little information.The author also wrote a lot unnecessary information and made the story extremely slow in the middle.The end was satisfying to read after wasting time reading about Gina’s perspective.Still a good book,I recommend to people with incredible patience.

Gripping. Well written, gripping storyline and relatable characters. Highly recommended

The Next Girl. One of the best books I have read in a very long time, totally gripping all the way through, very well written. A really good read.

Fantastic book. Love this book well recommended

Good book. Couldn’t put this down, really good read, somethings were predictable but still a good read. Wish it would’ve said more about the husband & wife’s reunion though at the end

Great read. Kept me guessing

Amazing read, very gifted writer. Well done!

Great read. Bit of a slow start but once I worked out who the characters were and their significance to the story, I really enjoyed it.

Couldn’t put this down. Read over a weekend. Gripping storyline. Downloading the next book in the series now!

Great read……….. Brilliant!!

Great read!. Couldn’t put it down and didn’t want it to end. Easy reading, exciting, well thought out characters. Thank you!

The next girl. A gripping tale. Remember to breathe

Excellent thriller. This book takes some putting down. The storyline moves at a fast pace, along with the numerous twists and turns you are hooked

Really Fricking good read!. Loved this and loved the twist at the end

Loved it. Gripped me from the start!!

An easy read. A fairly standard police procedural about a kidnapped woman and the police’s attempts to locate her. The detective Gina Harte is likable enough and the story has a few interesting facets, as Gina battles her own past demons of domestic abuse. It was fairly predictable though and a bit melodramatic in places. I wouldn’t read any more in the series.

Good read!. A story that keeps you turning pages to the end, can't wait to read the next ones!

Great read. Well written. Keeps you in the moment. Hard to put down.

Not my cup of tea. 100 pages in and no idea what is going on, maybe it all comes together but 7 chapters is a generous try! Each chapter changes stories and characters.

Utterly compelling. I couldn’t stop reading until I finished a headache and lack of sleep were worth it

Good Mystery. The book was interesting and kept me intrigued. There was good character development and the pacing worked well I did not think this novel had many thriller aspects and I felt that the ending\reveal was a let down. However, still a good read.

Despair, angst and visually intimidating. I couldn’t put the book down.. Poor Deborah. I could feel each emotion through every character’s part. This book had me crying at the end. Loved this book. Can’t wait to read the next one.

Great suspense story. An abandoned baby requires police to revisit a 4yr old cold case about Deborah who vanished one night. DI Gina boldly leads the case with a particular personal interest in domestic violence against women. Story told through Deborah and Gina’s POV. Great suspense story.

Not a fan. Didn’t really enjoy this one unfortunately. Found it quite boring, lots of unnecessary detail, and very simplistic plot line.

Gripping. First chapter didn’t have me wanting to continue, but after many days I’d decided to start again, and once I got past chapter one I found it hard to put down, exciting read all the rest of the way through.

Really cool book. I enjoyed this book. The suspense was well structured and rose dramatically as the end of the book loomed. Thought it was really good and can’t wait until the next book comes out.

Predictable. Within few pages, I knew who the culprit was.

Don’t waste your $.99. So much potential for a great story! The story line is so good but sadly disappointed with 90% of this book.Writing and dialog - boring, predictable with no depth. One star is being generous!

Captivating. Loved the journey

The Next Girl. Absolutely loved this book ! Can’t wait to read about Gina again soon

Love it!. Gripping! Couldn’t put it done! A must read

Great Book. It’s the first book in a while which gripped me in a “can’t put it down” way. Recommend the read!

Very good. The only thing not to like is you end up unable to put it down, so be prepared for a late night.

Couldn’t put it down, a real page turner!!. Very well written with a strong, realistice, relatable female lead. So many layers and intriguing twists and turns. A great read, looking forward to starting the next one.

A gripping read. I was hooked! The author really takes you to a different place without being over the top with descriptions. At times a pinch of humour added. The story was gripping and I couldn’t put the book down! Excellent.

50/50. Loved reading this book and couldn’t put it down. Very terrible ending. Just fizzled out with no real wrap up. Extremely disappointing.

The type of book you can't put down.. "The Next Girl" is a great book, that draws you in from the first page. Learning Gina's history is good, and it's written in such a way as to not overshadow the main plot. My only gripe would be that the spelling and grammar could be better. When I'm lost in the story, and the words are incorrect, it can be off putting.

Would burn it but it’s an ebook. Truly awfully written. What twist? I kept reading hoping for a return on my time but got nothing.

Great read. Wow, the pages kept turning as I became totally engrossed in the double sided drama between the detective & the perpetrator & everything else in between. Now onto the next in a long line of this author’s writings.

Dr T. Excellent read - my wife and I both Loved it !!!

The next girl. Gripping, couldn’t put it down. Thanks so much to the author.

Gripping story but ending flopped. Great mystery novel and really compelling but right at the end there’s no real reason for the kidnapping. The killer is apprehended but there was no reason for the initial kidnapping.

The next girl. Excellent!

Like. Like

good plot repetitive writing. meh. i read to the end because i wanted to know if Gina would tell Hannah the truth. the writing was repetitive and the book could’ve been a short story without all the snotty noses, copious tears, and boring dialogue

2.5 stars. This was a decent book and I found myself not wanting to put it down a couple of times, but the overall story was not overly gripping. I would still be open to reading some of the author’s other books.

Nail bitting and amazing!. I could not and did not want to put this book down! The story is gripping and keeps you on the edge of your seat from the beginning. Very well written. I highly suggest this book if you like crime thrillers!

Could not put it down. Well done 👏👏👏 riveting, thrilling, just what a thriller mystery should be! Thanks for the great read!
