Book Review// Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter

I am a massive Karin Slaughter fan. I have read all her books and if you haven't and are a crime fan you need to check them out. Her series is amazing. That being said her last few books (Cop TownCriminal & Unseen) weren't my favourite and I was starting to think I was falling out of love with her. This new stand alone that my mum lent me however has completely rekindled my love and I could not put this book down. 

"Twenty years ago Claire Scott's eldest sister, Julia, went missing. It was a mystery that was never solved and it tore her family apart.

Now another girl has disappeared, with chilling echoes of the past. And Claire is convinced that Julia's disappearance is linked.

But when she begins to learn the truth about her sister, she is confronted with a shocking discovery, and nothing will ever be the same..."

It took me a little bit to get into this book and get my head around who the characters were in relation to each other. It also switches between different characters points of views.

Claire get's sucked into trying to find out what happened to her sister but the digging results in shocking revelations of things that she may not want to know. There are a few twists that I never expected and this book is filled with suspense increased by not knowing who to trust. I also love that this book keeps you hooked until the end. This definitely isn't one of the more predictable thrillers.
The crimes are pretty horrific but it doesn't feel like they are just thrown in for the shock factor like some books. You get to experience a range of emotions alongside the main characters and even shed a few tears.

I really enjoyed this book and would definitely recommend it

Have you read any of Karin Slaughters books?
