Sisters. Strangers. Survivors.

More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that’s cruelly ripped open when Claire’s husband is killed.

The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it.

Powerful, poignant, and utterly gripping, packed with indelible characters and unforgettable twists, Pretty Girls is a masterful novel from one of the finest writers working today.

My Review

Read this one with the lights on and your doors bolted!

This was my first time reading a Karen Slaughter book and I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’d heard many good reports of this author’s work and no I see why.

This book is intense!

It starts with a father’s journal account of the loss and subsequent search for his daughter, Julie, which immediately made me empathize with him and the family he lost. We learn of his sense of helplessness, his anger and most of all, his determination to find his girl. It cost him his job, his wife, and to a lesser extent, his daughters.

So very sad.

Then we’re introduced to the vastly different estranged siblings, Lydia and Claire. Each sought security after the loss of their sister in different ways, drugs for Lydia, and marriage with a ‘safe’ guy for Claire.

The sudden, violent murder of Claire’s husband, John, brings the sisters together again and sheds light on his sadistic background.

This story has so many twists and turns my heart didn’t know whether to weep with all this poor family had been through, or shiver with fear at what they were living now.

Strong, eloquent writing. To be frank, it scared the hell out of me.

If you like your thrillers dark and twisted, this book is for you.

BOOK BLURB:

You know those little girls who dress up as Disney princesses in the bright, shimmery costumes and dream about their prince rescuing them?

That was never me.

In this story, it’s the witch who saves the prince.

Ever since I joined the Wicked Society, my tarot readings are always about sacrifice for the greater good and martyrdom. In other words, any day now I’m going to lose something or someone I love. Evidently, my spirit guides are the ride or die types.

For years, I’ve asked the cards the same question about my crush. Will Tate Winthrop fall in love with me? The answer is always someday.

As in someday Tate will love me back.

Someday there won’t be a group of witches using dark magic to destroy our coven.

Someday I’ll stop having the same dream about a handsome prince with long blond dreadlocks kissing a woman wearing a sparkly, poofy, ball gown.

Someday my witch will come.

This is book two in the Wicked Society series of interconnected lighthearted paranormal romances with a cozy mystery twist.
