Genre: Domestic Drama
Actual Rating: 4 stars
The Stillwater Girls was an unexpected surprise for me. I went into this book thinking it would be a psychological thriller but found that it's actually not. Instead, this is a domestic drama about a woman who desperately wants children only to find two mysteriously appear on her doorstep. Unfortunately, with these girls comes shocking revelations and deep seated secrets to come to life that will surprise all readers. I LOVED the twist in the story- I didn't see it coming at all- and I was absorbed in what was happening in everyone's life. I actually finished this book in one day because of how good it was. I am now really looking forward to more books by Minka Kent in the future.
One of the only drawbacks that I found was that the beginning of the book was a little slow. I almost gave up on the book because it at first seemed like it wasn't going anywhere. Luckily I stuck with it because once I got past the first few chapters the story takes off! Had it not been slow for me in the beginning this would have easily been a 5 star read for me. Not every reader will find it slow, but I think I did because I was expecting one thing and got something else. In any event, it's a great one and I very much recommend it!
