I loved every second of this! I can't believe it's only been a year since I read Slaughter's last book which I really enjoyed for the writing but "Pretty Girls" brings back all the macabre serial killer goodness I love about this author's books. Another standalone, this book had me going from the beginning and really threw me for a loop in the middle. It is quite tense with some very unnerving parts and not, repeat not, to be read by the weak-stomached. I also liked the relationships portrayed in the book and especially enjoyed it being a sister story (since I'm a sister) This feels fresh to me like Slaughter has come out rejuvenated with something different yet more like her earlier works. This was a page-turner for me, a disconcerting thriller that kept me reading way into the wee hours of the night.


  1. Yes.......... this sounds exactly like what I need. Oh goodness, I may choose this for my first read of the year, hmmmmm, I had my mind on another.

    Was this one of your best reads of the year.

    1. Hey! Yes, this was def. one of my best fiction reads this year. I read so many books I don't do best of lists any more because I'd have to sort them into genre's to be fair BUT of the serial killer and or thriller books I read this year, a lot made 4 stars for me, this was a rare, five star.
