Blog Blitz: Cross Your Heart By Kierney Scott - Detective Jess Bishop #2

Today I'm on the Blog Blitz for the fabulous Cross Your Heart by Kierney Scott. 

Blinking her eyes open, she looks around the room, taking in the bed and the wardrobe full of clothes she’s never seen before. This isn’t her bedroom. Those aren’t her clothes. She begins to cry as she wonders if she’ll ever see her own home again.

Three young girls are missing. All of them cold cases. All of them forgotten. But when Detective Jess Bishop identifies a disturbing link between them, she’s determined to find out what happened, and fights to re-open their cases. 

At the scene of each abduction the kidnapper left a clue – a small bag of candy – in place of the missing child.

And then a fourth child is taken. Eight-year-old Ava is snatched from her hospital bed and when a bag of candy is found in her room, Jessica knows it’s the same kidnapper.

As the pressure to solve the case pushes Jess and her team to breaking point, Jess takes a personal risk she fears she’ll live to regret. But she has no choice.

Out of hospital, Ava can only get sicker: Jess is running out of time. Can she find Ava before it’s too late?

An absolutely gripping thriller that will have your pulse racing. Cross Your Heart is perfect for fans of Robert Dugoni, Karin Slaughter and Lisa Gardner. 

My thoughts?

This series just keeps getting better and better. I've grown to love the character of Detective Jess Bishop (I found her prickly, weak and annoying at the start of the first book). 

Three young girls are missing and Jess thinks the cases are linked. Her team don't believe her which astounds her. When a fourth child is taken the race is on to find out how the cases are connected and what is the link to the cotton candy and sand..

I thought Jess really developed in this book. It was also good to see Jamieson, Jess's partner back (I hope they will eventually get back together, in book #3 maybe?). I also liked how Jess finally realises she needs help to get her life back on track. A brilliant second book and can't wait for book #3.
