Stone Cold Heart – Laura Griffin (5*****)


I was fortunate to receive this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.

A soon-to-be bridal party is out on the town for bar hopping, when Grace’s ID gets denied at the door by a bouncer. She opts to meet the rest of the girls at the hotel and starts heading that way. An Uber driver stops and offers her a ride, she accepts with reluctance…and disappears.

Meanwhile Delphi Center anthropologist Dr. Sara Lockhart is attending a wedding nearby, when she receives a call from Detective Nolan Hess, asking for her assistance in assessing some bones found by some hikers in a nearby park. Sensing urgency, she immediately heads to the scene, where she readily identifies the bones as human. But something else at the scene startles her….

As she and Detective Hess work to identify the young hiker, they learn of a missing teen, named Grace. When the bones found are NOT those of a hiker that went missing several months ago, they begin to suspect a serial killer. As they work to tie the cases together, and fight the attraction they feel for one another, the killer is closer than anyone thinks…but will they find him before he claims his next victim???

A fabulous new Delphi Center novel from Laura Griffin! As per usual with this author, I was hooked from the very first page and stayed up half of the night to read it straight through! Un-put-downable!! Be sure your afternoon is free before you open this book!!
