Pretty Girls By Karin Slaughter


Book Description:

The compelling new standalone novel from the Sunday TimesNo. 1 bestselling author of Unseen and Cop Town.

With a missing girl in the news, Claire Scott can’t help but be reminded of her sister, who disappeared twenty years ago in a mystery that was never solved.

But when Claire begins to learn the truth about her sister, nothing will ever be the same.

My Thought’s:

Pretty Girls has got to be one of the most uncomfortable yet compelling books that I have ever read.

The story gave me a glimpse of what could happen to a family that is left behind when a loved one goes missing. You could relate to how all the member’s of Julia’s family have dealt with her disappearance and I also had every empathy for them and for what they were going through.

Pretty Girls took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions, mainly shock and horror but also sadness.

Claire and Lydia, Julia’s sisters, have both got their own personal demons to try and live with and even though they have shown weakness in their pasts I enjoyed how both showed strength where it counted.

It is really hard to say anything about the story itself without giving to much away. There are so many twists, which a couple of them were definite OMG moments, so I am not going to say anything about it apart from that you really have to read it for yourself to see what you are missing out on.

Pretty Girls is certainly a book that will stay with me and that I won’t forget in a hurry. I think as long as you like a dark psychological thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat you will love this one. I can honestly say that Karin Slaughter is vast becoming one of my favourite authors.

Many thanks to Random House UK, Cornerstone and NetGalley for an Advance Readers Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

  1. You should definitely go back and start with her Grant County series – the first is Blindsighted. They’re definitely my favourites, plus some of the characters reappear in her later books, so start there and you know who everybody is and their backstory. Plus they’re fantastic plots. They’re set in a small town, and the main character’s are Dr Sara Linton and her husband, the Sheriff, Jeffrey. They’re meant to be separated, but keep meeting through work, as Sara has to deal with the police department a fair bit as part of her job’s responsibility. I think you’d enjoy them, if you liked this. Plus you can probably easily get them from the library/second-hand.
