Book Critique - Pretty Girls

Stars: 3 / 5

Recommendation: Karin's plot truly gets under your skin, keeping you breathless all the time, gluing you to the edge of the seats, while each turn of the page gives you new suspense and unexpected turns.

Pretty Girls is a stand-alone thriller by Karin Slaughter, first published in September of 2015. The story revolves around two estranged sisters - Claire Scott and Lydia Delgado - after Claire's husband is killed and she starts uncovering secrets.

Claire Scott had just been reeling with the senseless murder of her husband, Paul Scott, when she uncovers secrets. She reaches out to her estranged sister, Lydia Delgado, to dig through the secrets. Little do they know that their path would lead them to a buried past from their lives, which may put them in mortal danger in the present. 

This is the third book I have by Karin Slaughter. The only reason I had picked this at the used book store, even though it was not part of a series, was because the title reminded me of the young adult novel Pretty Little Liars. I had read partially the first book in Pretty Little Liars series and instantly disliked it. Yet, I picked this book and I have no idea why. :P Anyways, here is what I think about it.
