Yep – it’s Florida, and it’s cold!! So, not much else to do in chilly gray day weather than to curl up with a good book! So, for all you mystery/suspense readers out there, here’s another one for you!!
Pretty Girls Dancing – Kylie Brant
Kylie Brant’s newest thriller takes place in small town Ohio, where a young teenage girl has just been kidnapped. The story is told from a multitude of points of view – You are with Whitney as she sneaks out of her home late at night to meet the teen that she’s become close to via social media, and then experience her kidnapping and subsequent treatment through her eyes. You meet the parents and sister of Kelsey, who vanished under similar circumstances many years before, and you meet the law enforcement team that’s called into investigate Whitney’s disappearance. Each chapter focuses on a different character, and the secrets each persona holds as investigators race to rescue Whitney before it’s too late.
I have to admit, while I was initially put off by the way the story was told from the purview of each character, as the story progresses and events are revealed, it all comes together quite nicely. And while some readers always claim to be able to see the protagonist well before he/she is revealed, this book had me guessing until the end – and I was still wrong. If you like a great mystery/police procedural, then this novel is for you!! Looking forward to more from Kylie Brant!
