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.

Thank you, NetGalley and Hachette Book Group for the Advanced Readers Copy of I Know What You've Done by Dorothy Koomson. I was ecstatic to be receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review. This is the first time I've read a book by this author, and it definitely won't be the last time.

The book cover is fantastic, and the book title is intriguing. These two things drew me in to want to check out the synopsis of I Know What You've Done. After reading the summary, I knew I had to read this novel.

Each chapter is told from a different characters living in the Acacia Villas neighborhood. This was done extremely well and didn't lead to any confusion. It let the reader get to know each character and eventually learn what each of them was hiding from the rest of the neighbors. Like any good novel, there are characters you love and some you dislike immensely. This novel actually had a similar vibe to The Therapist by B.A. Paris, which is a good thing in my opinion.

I was on the edge of my seat the entire novel. I couldn't wait to find out what all the secrets were and who the attacker was. I thought I knew who the culprit was, but I was completely wrong! The ending of I Know What You've Done blew me away. I wasn't expecting it to end the way it did. With that being said, I hated how the book ended.

Four out of five stars is what I gave I Know What You've Done by Dorothy Koomson. This book was well written and engaging. I'm looking forward to reading other novels written by this author.
