About this deal

WHY DID IT HAVE TO HAPPEN AT ALL? The book doesn’t provide any explanation why the crime is committed, why the perpetrator has a proclivity for such sadistic behavior and how it came to be. I was curious, especially because Paul is indoctrinated and groomed by his father to continue “the family business”. There are three sisters, the eldest one Julia who was 19 years old went missing about 20 years ago. No one knew what happened to her no body found, no note – nothing. The relationship between Claire and Lydia also felt real. Claire is the youngest so she has this thing of leaning on other people because this is how she’s used to being treated in her house. Scientifically Proven Reasons Life Is Better If You're Beautiful – by Dina Spector in Business Insider I like how we got a lot revealed quite early on in the book, but that didn’t really make me lose interest. It just made me want more to be explained, and therefore, my eyes were glued to this one. I was somewhat confused in the beginning because of a lot of details that were given without much connection, but it all made sense in the end.

And next, I'm going to actually show you guys all my status updates now (NO SPOILERS) so you can sort of see what I went through while reading it... (haha, sorry, I can get a bit sweary sometimes)I really hope y'all enjoy the book. And don't worry--the next book for 2016 will have Will Trent and Sara Linton. I appreciate your patience because I know y'all love Will and Sara, but long-time readers will know what happens when I get bored and I wanted to take a knee on Will and Sara so that I could take time with the next phase of their stories together. I don’t even have time to touch on the weird beauty stuff in this book. Claire’s beauty is mentioned constantly, as is Lydia’s chubbiness. In fact, the dude torturing her BY WATERBOARDING HER WITH HIS OWN URINE, manages to get a couple of digs in about how she’s gained so much weight, he doesn’t even want to rape her anymore. Apparently, that’s how we’re supposed to know that he’s a REALLY bad guy.

Pretty Girls is the story of two sisters, one whom has just found herself widowed and the other a single mother of a teenaged daughter. They've long been estranged but have recently found themselves in communication again. Little do they know that uncovering their past will uncover way more than they ever could have expected - including some new clues regarding the 20 years ago disappearance of their oldest sister. Description: Twenty years ago Claire Scott's eldest sister, Julia, went missing. No one knew where she went - no note, no body. It was a mystery that was never solved and it tore her family apart. After I was well into the book I started to realize that the gruesomeness might be too much for me. I was starting to skip over the descriptions (very graphic descriptions) and feeling quite bothered. Other readers may not have an issue with it but I just felt a bit overloaded with details of such horrific acts. I ended up having to skip over quite a few parts. This is some seriously effed up story. It’s graphic and appalling and will probably give you nightmares, especially if you’re a girl. Particularly, the pretty ones with blond hair. Cause you know, some bogeymen are just so . . . basic and more vain than the others. So the plot? Garbage. It goes from one level of ludicrous to the next. You may even laugh at the last big 'twist' the book reveals. Because it's stupid. Soap operas have more flair. This is a paint by numbers tale. People behave in a manner that might work in a Monty Python sketch. There's an FBI agent that acts and speaks as though he's stumbled in from another goddamn dimension, and all you want to do is punch him in the face.In 1991 Julia Carroll disappeared. Her body was never found. In the following years the family coped in very different ways. The mother while forever quietly grieving, moved on and made a new life for herself. The father spent years looking for any clue as to what happened. Sisters Claire and Lydia grieved in very different ways and were estranged having not spoken in many years. Now over twenty years later, there has been another disappearance of a teenage girl and a murder of a middle-aged man that seem to be connected. This causes the sisters to reunite. if you enjoy dark, gritty, graphic crime mystery/thrillers, then this is the book for you. the characters are developed well (the antagonist is one of the most messed-up characters ive ever read), the plot is mysterious, and its written in such a way that you dont really know who to trust. This kind of thing happens in real life. They are horrible. But this is the next level of horrible crimes. It’s hard to read this book in one sitting cause you’ll want to take a break while reading the descriptions of the crimes.
