    Great little twisty mystery. Cat finds herself trying to unravel a murder that involves many family members. Also love that her dad makes a small appearance in this second story. Dragged in the last 10-15 pages but that's okay. Still a good read ...

    This is the second book I have read in this series and I can?t help feeling that it is ok and could be really good. I start out interested and then lose interest in the second half as it drags on. It turns out to be predictable without me being invested in the characters. Other May l...

    Second in series and like the first it starts out slowly. Kinsella has such an interesting back story which is for me a major draw, and here it threatens to spill over into her personal life. A body of a young woman is discovered, there has to be a body, right? Kinsella and her partner...

    This is the second book in the DC Cat Kinsella series and it was a great follow up. I would definitely read them in order as the history of the character and a lot of her personal storyline rests on what she did in the first but the author doesn't recap it much. The crime storyline can...

    This is becoming one of my new favorite series!!!! In the second installment of the Cat Kinsella series, a young woman is found murdered in her flat. The investigation into her death leads to many suspects (all of whom seem to have possible motive). Frear does a great job concealing...

    strong second entry in the series. While the murder plot might work fine as a stand-alone, the complicated personal situation of Cat Kinsella can really only be appreciated if you've read the first one, so I'd encourage people to go in order. She's a difficult and compromised candidate...

    A very British, very compelling police procedural featuring London DC Catrina "Cat" Kinsella, on her second outing. Following British police investigations is very interesting; Cat's own "dodgy" family history continues to complicate matters, and the book ends on an irresistible cliffh...

    This one, Boys and Girls, has teeth. Sharp, jagged, incisors that sink to the bone and leave quite the gaping wound in its aftermath. Caz Frear brings her quick-witted character of DC Cat Kinsella to the forefront once again in this second offering in the Cat Kinsella Series. Adm...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com The brilliant DC Cat Kinsella is back, in the new release from Caz Frear which follows on from the hugely entertaining Sweet Little Lies. Stone Cold Heart builds on the brilliant character of Cat, with her own issues (largely around her dad and...

    This is my first book by Caz Frear and I was really impressed by both the writing and the complexity of the storyline which is a murder mystery, police procedural and excellently done. It?s written in the first person (Cat Kinsella) and she is a real character with plenty of flaws an...

    After I read Caz Frear?s ?Sweet Little Lies? I immediately wanted more from main protagonist Cat Kinsella so when Stone Cold Heart turned up I pretty much dropped everything and read it. Like the last novel this was so utterly gripping I think the zombie apocalypse could have sta...

    Caz Frear?s follow-up to Sweet Little Lies was everything I was hoping for and more. Detective Cat Kinsella, our immensely likable and fascinatingly complex protagonist, takes on another confounding murder case, one that ultimately proves to be just as compelling and far, far more...

    Thank you to NetGalley, Bonnier Zaffre and Caz Frear for my ARC of ?Stone Cold Heart?. Never a good idea though to start at book Two in a series as this is the second featuring DC Cat Kinsella. There is a back story from book One that is left tantalisingly unanswered, although S...

    This is the second book by Caz Fear featuring DC Cat Kinsella and whilst it can be read as a stand-alone - I would 100% recommend you start with book 1 Sweet Little Lies because 1) there is quite a bit of background you should know and 2) it's a bloody brilliant. Stone Cold Heart is...

    4.5 -5 stars! Another great read from Frear! Again we are following DC Cat Kinsella as she navigates the murder of a young woman and her own personal drama and family secrets. Although this one could be read without reading Sweet Little Lies (Frear's debut), I highly suggest you start ...

    I really enjoyed the debut from Caz Frear and so was delighted to be able to read her second DC Cat Kinsella book. Although possible to read as a standalone, I do think you probably need to read Sweet Little Lies first as there is quite a chunk of backstory that?s quite relevant to u...

    Caz Frear's debut novel, Sweet Little Lies, was a winner of 'the Richard and Judy Search for a best seller competition' and promptly went on to fulfil that particular prophecy. Given this level of success, it would be easy to imagine that the difficulties traditionally associated with ...

    A fractured marriage. A silent family. A secret that connects them all...... Having read and loved Caz Frear's first novel "Sweet Little Lies" I was very much looking forward to meeting DC Cat Kinsella again in "Stone Cold Heart". "When DC Cat Kinsella is approached by Joseph Madden...

    Caz Frear has done it again with this cracker of a book. DI Cat Kinsella was back with her partner DS Luigi Parnell in this intelligent police procedural. A murder of a young woman with her head bashed in caused the cops to rush to the investigation. And the Maddens and their extend...

    This is the second book in this series and whilst some books can be read as stand alones, I felt I was missing quite a lot by not having read the first book. This is my fault so had no reflection on my rating of the book itself. Cat is called to a murder scene where a girl is found...

    As a huge fan of the first Cat Kinsella novel, I was really looking forward to Stone Cold Heart. I am pleased to report that I was not disappointed. It?s a new case and this time, Cat doesn?t have a connection to family history to worry about not declaring to her colleagues. She do...

    This is my first 5 star review on here and for good reason - Caz Frear?s sequel to Sweet Little Lies is so much more than I could have asked for. The first in the series was a solid crime novel, but the second had me getting up to make sure my doors are locked. So spooky and intrigui...
