Cold Heart by Stephen Edger @StephenEdger #BlogBlitz @bookouture #Review

Thank you for stopping by as I take part in the blog blitz for Cold Heart by Stephen Edger and share my review today. First of all let's take a look at the description for the book...

It has been a week since anyone last saw fifteen-year-old Daisy, after she left her best friend’s house and started her short walk home. Detective Kate Matthews and her team have been looking for her ever since.

When a tip-off leads Kate to a disused gymnasium at Daisy’s school, she is shocked to find evidence linking to the murder of a different girl. 

Working the two cases side by side, Kate’s blood runs cold when a gift-wrapped box containing a human heart is delivered to her at the station. The heart belongs to yet another unknown victim, but the message is clear: there will be more, and Daisy could be one of them. 

When activity on Daisy’s Facebook account indicates she is still alive, the race is on for Kate and her team. Will Daisy be the killer’s next victim? Is Kate prepared to risk everything to stop another innocent life from being taken?

This absolutely unputdownable crime thriller will have fans of Angela Marsons, Peter James and Rachel Abbott biting their nails long after the final twist has sunk in.

I have really enjoyed seeing Kate develop over the three books released in this series and I love her determination to solve her cases. I also felt that in Cold Heart you were able to see a more emotional side to her character which made her all the more likeable for me. Even though this is book three I still think you can read it as a standalone as you are given bits and pieces regarding character history. It has been a great series so I would say if you get chance it is worthwhile starting right at the beginning.

In this book Kate is investigating the disappearance of a teenager and the case provided quite a few twists along the way. This brought up more questions than answers for Kate which definitely kept things interesting. It felt like I was catching up with old friends as Kate and her team set about trying to solve Daisy's disappearance.

The pace is pretty good and easily kept me invested in discovering the truth behind it all. I tried to piece all the clues together but as ever failed miserably but I still really enjoyed playing detective ;) At times there was a sinister edge to Cold Heart that made everything even more compelling as I was left wondering what would happen next.

I'm looking forward to seeing what will be in store for Kate next!

Four stars from me!
