Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter, printed September 29, 2015 by William Morrow
Genre: thriller, mystery
With a missing girl in the news, Claire Scott can’t help but be reminded of her sister, who disappeared twenty years ago in a mystery that was never solved. 
But when Claire begins to learn the truth about her sister, nothing will ever be the same.

First paragraph, first chapter:
When you first disappeared, your mother warned me that finding out exactly what had happened to you would be worse than never knowing. We argued about this constantly because arguing was the only thing that held us together at the time. 
Teaser, page 69:
"No," she'd told him, because by then, the desire had been stifled by a tall stack of waffles. "I feel like I want to dig up Paul's body and kill him all over again."
My comments: I enjoyed the book, though I wished it had been less violent. 


  1. That's interesting! Waffles huh? Yummy. :)

  2. Love the intro and definitely want to read this one.

  3. Empathize with the sentiment there. Good teaser. Here's mine: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-X7

  8. I have read some of the other books by this author and have enjoyed them. This sounds like another I would enjoy. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Yes, I would keep reading. I like the first paragraph and the teaser. I have been wanting to read something by this author for quite some time. I'm not sure if this is the one or not. Is this a series that I should begin at book one?

  10. This does sound good! I can see why not knowing might be better for some, but I think I would want to know, no matter how awful. I like the teaser you posted as well--nice juxtaposition to the opening.
