Welcome to our stop on the Blog Blitz for Kierney Scott’s book, “Cross Your Heart”…
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.
A creepy kid napping investigation turns even creepier as the story unravels, Cross Your Heart is a detective crime thriller that will have you guessing!
I had my suspicions about half way through the story. I wasn’t totally convinced I figured out who was behind the mysterious disappearance of young girls who seem to be connected by the same events (the way they were found dressed, the sand in their hair, the cotton candy traces under their finger nails.)
Even though my suspicions were founded at the end, the details surrounding the abductor and why they were driven to do what they did were still shocking!
If you enjoy detective crime thrillers, you will be sure to enjoy this book! Thank you Netgalley, Bookouture, and Kierney Scott for this ARC in exchange for my honest review!

Pumpkin arancini and pumpkin queso were a big hit. She has promised her daughter to never again roast pumpkin and call them chips.
