The Short of It:
Impossible to put down!
The Rest of It:
This book has it all. A beautiful Greece setting, characters you care about. a quick, dramatic pace, and it will keep you guessing. A group of friends take off on a “hen” weekend, a bachelorette party to celebrate Lexi’s upcoming wedding but everyone on this trip has a secret she is keeping and at the top of the story you know someone ends up dead so from the very first page I was pulled in.
Clarke tells a really good story. There are some surprises and many twists but that gorgeous Greece setting takes center stage. With each page, you are right there with them. At the villa, on the boat, soaking up the sun and enjoying they many drinks that a gathering such as this one has readily available. Clarke slowly peels back the many layers and reveals all of their insecurities and worries and doubt. Do you ever really know your friends?
If you haven’t read One of the Girls yet, you should. It was excellent and got me out of my slump.

Oooh, I’m intrigued by the setting. I’ve never been to Greece, but this sounds like a good story. I’m glad it pulled you out of your slump, Ti!
I hope you have a good week.
I was tempted when I saw you say “Impossible to put down!”
I was sold when you said “got me out of my slump”!
It’s going on my ’23 list.
This sounds great!
Sounds pretty good & vividly described. Now I’m wondering who winds up dead. They’re thrown into the water right?
Ok. Adding this one to my TBR (thanks for that!). It sounds really good.
Oh this sounds like a great read! Ive been to Greece- Many Moons Ago. But I remember almost everything, So, this book is going on my TBR list!!! thank you! I havent been here in years by the way, Missed your reviews, There are a lot of youtubers that give them but they give too much of the book away. And GASP they even do spoilers! WHY? lol i hate spoilers. Anyway, I am so glad to be back and cleaning out my 71 thousand emails on aol LOL—-Maria
I tried to review on YouTube once and had a hard time keeping it brief so blogging is for me. One of the Girls was really quite good. Not really predictable but also very believable.
