Actual Rating: 4.5 stars
Murder Mystery | Suspense
The Girls Weekend is a suspenseful murder mystery! I’m actually quite surprised by some of the reviews of this book because I personally thought this was a really great read! I love a weekend getaway type mystery, one where the characters have come together after a long period of time, and dark secrets are shared one by one. Add into this the seclusion of the setting, the unpredictable plot twists, and some intriguing characters and you have all the makings for a great read! This is how I viewed the book and all around and I enjoyed it immensely! Fans of Shari Lapena, Ruth Ware, and Lucy Foley would be perfect candidates for this one.
One of the things that I loved about this one was the smattering of breadcrumbs the author left for us to follow in figuring out the killer. You think it’s one person (Sadie had a little something on EVERYONE), but then are led to see that them being the killer isn’t really plausible. On and on you go until the big reveal at the end. Sure, you may be able to figure it out before it’s revealed, but I honestly think it’s HOW you get there that makes it so exciting.
Another thing I loved about this book was the characters. Each have their own secrets to hold and they make for some intriguing people. I found each one of them guilty at one point or another which helped with the suspense. No one was really “good” or unbelievable to be the killer. I felt like I was making my way through a maze!
I’m giving this one 4.5 stars because I honestly just enjoyed the heck out of this book. It may have been a tad bit slow in some areas but most of the book flew by for me. I found myself wanting to read it when I couldn’t and not wanting to put it down when I was reading. That my friends, is a successful read! I recommend it to all fans of mystery and thriller novels.
