Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore. With that being said, I had my suspicions that the "killer" was one of two people, and one of them ended up being the killer, so I was happy with my deduction.

Book Review: The Therapist by B.A. Paris

book review the therapist ba paris

The Therapist by B.A. Paris is about a couple named Alice and Leo moving into a gated community called "The Circle", where nothing is as it seems. When Alice learns of her new home's secret, she starts investigating the previous owner named Nina who was a therapist. However, none of the neighbors want to talk about her.

When I bought this latest book by B.A. Paris, I knew absolutely nothing about the storyline. I got it solely based on the fact of who wrote it, and I was not disappointed in the least. The Therapist sucked me in from the very beginning, and I think I may like this book even more than I did The Breakdown.

Up until the last fifty or so pages, I thought one person was the murderer, and then, I started thinking that it was a different person. I was correct in my second guess, and I don't know how I let myself be led astray for so long. The author did a great job of throwing suspicion on all of the neighbors at one point or another. With that being said, I did think there was more to next door neighbors, Lorna and Edward. I thought they might be Leo's parents since he was estranged from them, but you'll have to read the book for yourself to see if I was right or not.

I enjoyed the fact that I could escape into The Therapist. It was a lighter read without too much gore and horror, which is nice for a change. Five out of five stars is what I gave The Therapist by B.A. Paris. If you enjoyed this book, I recommend That Night by Chevy Stevens.
