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.

    I should have read the reviews first. Very graphic and super disturbing.
  • Fantastic Read!

    By AlexaAdams
    I read this book in 2 days! Super exciting I’m the beginning, middle, and end. Does have strong themes of sexual assault, so prepare yourself for that before starting this book. A must-read for a crime junkie!
  • Unnecessarily Too Long

    By JCamp70
    This was filled with fluff to increase page count. Totally bored at times and needed to skip over the telling parts that added no depth to the story at all.
  • Read something else instead…. Awful book

    By unkiseedd
    Really wish I had spent my money and time on something else, the book focuses on abuse towards women in a very explicit way and that’s literally all it is. Read something else instead…
  • Incredible

    By meeruh
    My new favorite thriller. Incredible storytelling, emotion, and horror. Cannot recommend this book enough.
  • Holy gore

    By Alexacsanko13
    What a page turner. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. Was almost like a horror movie. This author has a dark mind and writes outstandingly.
  • Could not put this down!

    By jeskage_
    I finished this in about a day and a half! If you are looking for a fast paced thriller-page turner look no further. 100% recommend.
  • Awesome Book

    By ken22458
    I found it to be an amazing story. I was, also thinking, this was written by a woman. The scenes of torture, and brutality, of what humans can do to one another is just not for men.
  • Wordy and how!

    By Parinormal huntr
    The plot was good. The story was good. I was exhausted every time I would read a chapter because the author went on and on and on about irrelevant details. I will not read any more of her books because trying to get to the meat of the story was like fighting your way out of a bank vault with a plastic spoon.
  • Very hard to read

    By ktlou0527
    It was good but there were some parts that were very difficult to read.
