Bring Them Home (Detective Karen Hart Book 1) Kindle Edition
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…

In this case, two young girls disappear on their way home from school. The ensuing search introduces a complex group of characters all with their own back stories of which we get a glimpse characters range from the over enthusiastic new officer to the experienced and the exhausted.
Relationships evolve alongside the plot, the twists and turns are largely believable and there is promise of more to come.
Looking forward to the next in the series.
I read these books in the wrong order because I was given an ARC of the second DS Karen Hart book, which I really enjoyed, so bought this one. There were many twists and turns in the investigation, as you would expect, and I didn’t guess the ending. I am now looking forward to book 3 in the series.
I listened to this book on Audible, and although I enjoyed the story, I did not enjoy the narrator and sometimes felt like giving up because she was spoiling the story for me. Authors, please be aware that a narrator can make or break a book.
This book is brilliant at transporting you into the detectives lives of hard work, endless dead end leads, suspicion and good old intuition. Which goes into every case they are given. I recommend to every crime thriller enthusiast to buy this book. You won't be disappointed.
A good story, keeping you wanting to read on and find out what will happen.
