Stolen Hearts


Sergeant Jill Evans is a small town cop in Wales with an impressive record in her job, and a less than impressive record in her love life. After three engagements, two divorces and one affair, she’s beginning to worry that love is only true in fairy tales. That is until she meets: Dean. He’s a wealthy beauty entrepreneur with his own range of toiletries.

Girl meets boy. Boy meets girl. They kiss and fall in love. Roll credits.

But that would be boring, wouldn’t it? Instead, this is a love story like no other. It’s all going so well for Jill and Dean, until Halloween night, when Dean disappears. And Sgt. Jill is left to pick up the pieces.

From Wondery and Novel, comes a new series. Hosted by Kerry Godliman.

Our Editor's Take

Fans of romance, intrigue, and true crime may enjoy the Stolen Hearts podcast. Actor and comedian Kerry Godliman hosts this entertaining six-episode series. With a script written by Kim MacAskill, Stolen Hearts is both a romantic comedy and a suspenseful mystery.

The main character, Jill Evans, appears to have it all. She has a big house, a fast car, two daughters, and a great career. Lacking romance in her life, Jill decides to try online dating. That's where she finds Dean Jenkins, a charming businessman. At first, everything progresses in a happy manner for the couple. Jill even becomes pregnant with Dean's child. Then, one night, Dean stops answering his phone. The Stolen Hearts podcast tells what happens next.

This sudden lack of communication sparks uneasiness in Jill. As the hours, days, and weeks go by, Jill learns more about the truth of Dean's past. After such an abrupt shock, Jill's whole life starts to change. Extensive police investigations and cunning journalists lead to an unfortunate set of events. Jill's personal and professional future becomes uncertain. Will she be able to continue her career on the police force? Will she become reunited with Dean? Is she still in love with him? The Achilles Stamatelak podcast answers these riveting questions and many more.

The Stolen Hearts podcast uses a cinematic style to bring this story to life. Listeners will hear Godliman's narration and snippets from those concerned with the case. Each episode unravels more of the lies and deceit happening in plain sight. Both true crime and drama fans may enjoy this show.
