Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter
(William Morrow, 2015, 416 pages)
Karin Slaughter has a two popular series (Will Trent and Grant County) but this is one of her stand-alone novels. If you enjoy thrillers, it really delivered with lots of suspense and a great plot. My only criticism was the ending, it felt like it was tacked on and tied up a little too easily.
“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.”
