Publisher's Summary

Samantha stumbled out of the party and on to a busy street only 10 minutes away from her home. But she never made it home....

Seven years after Samantha’s disappearance, on what would have been her 35th birthday, her best friend Diane is shocked to find a letter addressed to Samantha on her doorstep.

Opening the envelope, Diane pulls out a birthday card and a fingernail painted in dusky pink nail polish. The same shade Samantha always wore. The same shade she was wearing the night she went missing.

When police analyse the nail, they don’t get the result they expected. Instead of linking them to Samantha, the nail belongs to another woman, Jade Ashmore. And Jade was murdered the night before the envelope was delivered....

The completely addictive new crime thriller from best selling author Carla Kovach - if you love Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza, or Clare Mackintosh, you’ll love The Liar’s House.  

"A tense read with a couple of surprises along the way." (For the Love of Books, 4 stars)

Gina Harte is an unbearable sad sack

I purchased this on a whim as I had already listened to the other Gina Harte books. But this one is unbearable.
Gina Harte needs to get over what happened like 20 years ago and move the hell on... she’s a privileged white woman on a successful career path (god knows how because she really is a sub-par copper) and yet she still only ever sooks, everything is *so* hard and dreary.

I can’t do it. I can’t force myself to finish the book. There’s still six hours left and I’m deleting it out of my library to make room for another woman detective who is smart, resilient, upbeat, confident and can roll with the punches.

Good storyline

I enjoyed the plot and the twist and turns. Having to live through Gina’s turmoil in every book detracts from the story for me.

This series isn’t worth listening to anymore

I really enjoyed the first 2 books of this series.
The story was good. Characters were good. I liked the main character Gina very much.

By book 3 the author decided to change Gina from a strong, successful leader into an emotional wreck who can hardly function day to day let alone lead a team to solve a mystery.

Book 4 is 90% her having a panic attacks, having flash backs to her past or pining for her ex boyfriend that she dumped. The addition of yet another anxiety ridden weak female character as part of the story just added insult to injury.

Remove the repetitive and boring parts focused solely on the above and the book would be about 2/3 shorter. It’s a shame so little of the story was actually about the crime they were solving.

I won’t bother with this series anymore. It’s not a detective story anymore.

It was okay.

Narrator was good but story was slow. I didn’t know the “culprit” until quite close to the end so that was good. Overall, an ok book but I guess I was glad when I finished it so I could move on to a better book.

Always a treat

The Gina Hart series is one of my favorites. I always just gobble them up, and this is no exception. The only issue I have with this is one I have with all books I read that are part of a series: the follow ups. As someone that's been reading since book one, I know all the characters and their histories. However, this series doesn't really require you read each one in order so often times within the story the author will rehash old storylines so keep the reader up to date. I hate it only because it's not meant for me and I just wanna get to the juicy bits. Other than that, another fantastic story.

Another brilliant story

I can't wait for the next one. Absolutely love this author, totally gripping, I have listened to all the books back to back! I wish Gina would get back together with Chris though and get some counselling for the Terry thing as that is getting a bit dull

Totally addicted

I’ve finally finished the Liars House after struggling to find time to listen but wanting it never to end at the same time.

Another stunning story written by Carla Kovach and read by the amazing Tamsin Kennard who for me is Gina Harte. The characters tugged at the heart strings when sometimes they shouldn’t have. I’ve listened to all of the series and can’t wait until the next story. Thank you Carla Kovach!
