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.

BRB..gotta go check, double check & triple check to make sure all my doors are locked. Wowza, that was one heck of a horrific, stomach in knots, on the edge of my seat, wild & traumatic ride! This one really sucked me in to the story & definitely won’t be leaving my mind for a while. If you’re a true crime junkie, that loves a good dark graphic psychological thriller-this one’s probably for you. (Just keep in mind that there is some pretty detailed graphic violent scenes). Sucked me in from the very beginning, confused the heck outta me with all the twists & trying to piece everything together. But kept me NEEDING to find out how it was all going to end! Had me so frustrated & literally wanted to scream my lungs out at Claire though! Like, girrrrrrrl!! This is not the time to try & be a hero! Definitely gunna need something light & fluffy after this one! Karin, you alright girl??!?

This book is so dark, twisted, and violent. I did not expect everything that happened, but I enjoyed it from the 1st chapter. My only complaint was: The chapters are really long so it was difficult finding a stopping point because I didn’t want to put it down. There are also many trigger warnings like violence and gore.
