A missing girl in the news reminds Julia Carroll of herself: nineteen, beautiful, blonde hair, blue eyes.
Julia begins to dig deeper and plans an article for her college paper. She becomes gradually more obsessed with the case, never imagining how close she herself is to danger.
Includes an extract from Karin Slaughter’s gripping new novel, Pretty Girls.
Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes is a short story which is a prelude to the authors new book, Pretty Girls.
As short stories go this one is pretty darn good. The author had me totally enthralled in the story right from the beginning.
Julia is just your typical college student, studying hard, interested in boys, well one in particular and as described in the book a beautiful looking girl. Being beautiful as we discover isn’t as great as we would think it would be.
Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes is a steady read that certainly held my attention. I have to say I loved how it ended, it certainly took my breath away and has left me very eager now to read the authors new book Pretty Girls.
I have no idea as yet to whether it is beneficial to read the short story having not read Pretty Girls yet but I will say if you want something short and gripping that will take your breath away at the end then you definitely need to read this.
Many thanks to Random House UK, Cornerstone and Netgalley for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.
