I was hooked with the opening line. “Like most clusterfucks these days, it starts with a group text.” Perfect way to set up the ensuing drama.
The girls weekend is a quick, entertaining thriller. A group of old college friends reunite for a girls weekend. During a drunken night which none of them can remember, one of the women goes missing leaving bloodstains around the house. Despite the premise being nothing super unique, this book was very enjoyable to read. The characters were all well fleshed out and the relationships between them strained and believable as they would be 10 years after college with plenty of secrets to be revealed.
I have a bad habit of being able to guess the ending or who the killer is in the beginning, but this one had enough plausible suspects that I actually wasn’t able to guess who the killer was. I had suspicions on a few of them so the reveal was both surprising and not because it was set up properly.
If you’re looking for a quick thrilling read, definitely pick this up when it releases on June 9th!
