Pretty Girls

Cover: 'Pretty Girls'

Staff Review: "Pretty Girls" by Karin Slaughter


Twenty years ago, free-spirited and beautiful Julia Carroll disappeared. Her body was never found, and her family has not been able to put her to rest. Unable to come to terms with their grief, Julia's family is ripped apart. Her father dies searching for an answer, while her sisters, Claire and Lydia, refuse to speak to each other. In the present, the disappearance of another pretty girl and the murder of Claire's husband force the sisters into each others lives as they try to find out what really happened to Julia, discovering horrible truths along the way. This book is quite gruesome in parts, but the twists and turns will keep you reading long into the night! I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good thriller filled with monstrous villains and heart-pounding suspense.
