Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter (38)

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.

REVIEW:
Should definitely be book of the year!
This intensely gripping novel is one thriller I won't soon forget. Seriously on the nights that I have to spend alone, this book will come creeping its way back into my thoughts. So vivid it could actually happen. That's a chilling thought.
Lydia is a bad-ass chick and I really connected with her, though Claire, her sister, is the protagonist. The story also flips to the fathers' perspective, and it is needed in the story for you to gain the real focus and feel of it all.
I plan on telling everyone about this book, starting with you all, of course. It is one of the best thrillers I have read ever, and I have read a lot. I flew through this almost 600 page story too, so you know it's wicked good.
Get a copy, and get it read today. You won't regret it.

5/5

  1. Oh Freda, this book sounds like my cup of tea, I do like a thriller upon occasion. I wonder if the author's name is really Slaughter, perfect name. Thanks for the info you left me in a comment on my blog, about how to do Friday 56 correctly. I HOPE to do it right next time.

  2. Glad to hear it really flies by with the 600 pages. Do you have time to take a breath, or on the edge of your seat for all of it?!?

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
