Book Review: Her Dark Heart

Susan Wheeler is a devoted mother. She would do anything for her three children. She drops them off and picks them up every single day. Until one day when Susan kisses them goodbye and then never comes to pick them up.
Susan’s mother Mary is worried. Susan is recently divorced and has been finding things hard recently, but she loves her kids – she’d never leave them.
Susan’s sister Clare is furious. It’s just like her to go missing. It’s not the first time, either. Susan has always been a troublemaker. Always seeking attention. She knows Susan has been lying to the family for years. And she knows that Susan has been sneaking out of her family home for weeks…
As the hours turn into days, even Clare becomes fearful for Susan. And, when Mary discovers Susan’s diary, she begins to uncover a dark secret from her childhood. Something no one in the family knew. When the final diary entry leads the police to a man who is discovered dead in a local park, they’re left wondering whether Susan has vanished because she is a victim. Or because she is a suspect…

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

I really enjoy anything in this series. The first three books were probably my favorite, but this one did not disappoint either. This book in particular can be read as a stand alone but I would highly suggest reading the other four books in the series. 

Gina really fought her innermost demons in this book. It was really intense. This is one of those series that just really pulls you in and keeps you. I always look forward to the next installment. 

I am just in love with the authors writing style. I am never ready for the end of these books. These books are fast paced but for stories like this one, it has to be. I love that these are the kind of books you read for the character. You want them to continue because of Gina and her struggles. 

Thank you so much to the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for allowing me to review this title.
