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. On the other hand, I couldn't figure out who the victim was going to be, and I was completely surprised b

Book Review: Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson

book review every vow you break peter swanson

Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson - Abigail Baskin falls in love with millionaire Bruce Lamb. During her bachelorette party, Abigail has a drunken one night stand and instantly regrets it. When the guy from Abigail's bachelorette party shows up every where she is, including her wedding and honeymoon, she's frantic.

Fast paced and unputdownable is how I would describe Every Vow You Break by Peter Swanson. Enjoyable from page one, I couldn't wait to see how it would end. Although it was a bit predictable, I loved this novel so much more than I did his Eight Perfect Murders. I was ecstatic that he didn't give away any endings to other books this time. However, if you haven't watched The Wicker Man, you may want to watch the movie before reading this book because he does give away the ending to it. Thankfully, I had already seen the remake of the movie with Nicholas Cage.

Several of the characters were unlikable like Bruce and Scottie. With that being said, at one point I kind of liked Scottie, but that didn't last too long. However, there were some likable characters . . . I liked the main character, despite her indiscretions and her best friend Zoe. I even liked the only other female guest on the island, Jill.

Even though Every Vow You Break was a bit predictable, as I mentioned before, it still had my heart racing at parts. It was very entertaining yet disturbing at the same time. Some things that were great reminders about real life that were in this book was to take breaks from social media . . . it really is addictive, and to not ignore any red flags you see in relationships or other aspects in your life. 

I don't really have any complaints for Every Vow You Break and can't wait to read another novel by Peter Swanson. I gave this book five out of five stars.
