Pretty Girls Dancing by Kylie Brant


Pretty Girls Dancing is a mystery thriller with the emphasis on mystery and told in the third-person from the viewpoint of the multiple characters.

Anguish and disbelief revived their inner war, threatening to tear her apart.

While its a decent read, the pacing is slow and I would have liked to see more of the thriller aspect.

Panic still pounded through her veins, but her thoughts were scattered.

The characters are rather undeveloped and I don’t know them well enough to have a vested in their individual stories. Actually, I feel as though the book is more a superficial overview of a story with so much potential.

Her pulse went to ice.

There are some surprises, but for the most part, the plot is quite predictable and I suspect the book may prove to be forgettable.

A hot ball of dread twisted in his belly.

A very compelling cover and abstract promised a dark, twisted thriller but didn’t quite deliver.3 Star

Years ago, in the town of Saxon Falls, young Kelsey Willard disappeared and was presumed dead. The tragedy left her family with a fractured life—a mother out to numb the pain, a father losing a battle with his own private demons, and a sister desperate for closure. But now another teenage girl has gone missing. It’s ripping open old wounds for the Willards, dragging them back into a painful past, and leaving them unprepared for where it will take them next.

Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent Mark Foster has stumbled on uncanny parallels in the lives of the two missing girls that could unlock clues to a serial killer’s identity. That means breaking down the walls of the Willards’ long-guarded secrets and getting to a truth that is darker than he bargained for. Now, to rescue one missing girl, he must first solve the riddles that disappeared with another: Kelsey Willard herself. Dead or alive, she is his last hope— Abstract from Goodreads.com

The fact that I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book does not influence my policy to write an honest review.
