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: An Unthinkable Thing by Nicole Lundrigan

book review an unthinkable thing nicole lundrigan
In the summer of 1958, Tommie Ware turns eleven, and little does he know that his life will be turned upside down when his aunt doesn't come home from her night shift. She's later found murdered, presumably by a serial killer, and Tommie is sent to live with his mother at the Henneberry Estate, where she works as a servant. Nothing is as it seems in An Unthinkable Thing by Nicole Lundrigan.

First, I want to start by thanking NetGalley and Penguin Random House Canada for the advanced ebook copy of An Unthinkable Thing by Nicole Lundrigan. It was a pleasure to be one of the first people to read this book.

Told from the perspective of Tommy Ware, An Unthinkable Thing was reminiscent of several V.C. Andrews books. It's even a bit nostalgic of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Throughout the book, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop, and when it did, I was content with the result.

Although a little slow, the story was well written, and I was eager to find out what would happen. I was pleased that there were several likable characters, which made up for the ones that weren't pleasant. All in all, I enjoyed An Unthinkable Thing, and there isn't really anything negative I could say about the book other than the pacing could have been a bit more brisk. Four out of five stars.
