I enjoyed the first two book, and found this one to be horrible. Unfortunately listening to this book spoiled my enjoyment of those two books.

What a complete disappointment.

This book is just horrible. The main FBI character is shallow and not very likable.

This book is all about how people look. I can honestly say I was cheering for the serial killer to take out the male FBI agent.

The book makes pretty much all the law enforcement individuals idiots. Just a horrible waste of time and money.

On a foggy summer night, 11 people - 10 privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter - depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later the unthinkable happens: The plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are Scott Burroughs - the painter - and a four-year-old boy who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family.

To all appearances, Dan Chase is a harmless retiree in Vermont with two big mutts and a grown daughter he keeps in touch with by phone. But most 60-year-old widowers don't have multiple driver's licenses, savings stockpiled in banks across the country, and a bugout kit with two Beretta Nanos stashed in the spare bedroom closet. Most have not spent decades on the run.

When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard lock eyes across a disreputable backwater bar, something definitely sparks. Shaw gives off a dangerous vibe that makes men wary and inspires women to sit up and take notice. None feel that undercurrent more strongly than savvy businesswoman Jordie, who doesn't belong in a seedy dive on the banks of a bayou. But here she is...and Shaw Kinnard is here to kill her.

I struggled getting into this book. I did not like any of the characters. I finally returned the book when it went to a dog fight. This book is horrible in my opinion.

I normally love Sandra Brown books. This one really deviated from her quality of writing. I also did not like the voices/accents the narrator used.

The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that's cruelly ripped open when Claire's husband is killed.

What disappointed you about Pretty Girls?

The characters were horrible. I found nothing endearing about the "girls" in the story. The plot was predictable, and far fetched.

What could Karin Slaughter have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not bothered writing it.

What does Kathleen Early bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Very good narrator.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The only redeeming quality is that I can return it because it was that bad.

As the dreary, bitter weather of late fall descends on Minneapolis, Detective Nikki Liska is restless. After moving to the cold case squad in order to spend more time with her sons, she misses the rush of pulling an all-nighter, the sense of urgency of hunting a murderer on the loose. Most of all she misses her old partner, Sam Kovac. Sam is having an even harder time adjusting to Nikki's absence, saddled with a green new partner younger than pieces of Sam's wardrobe.

This story feels rushed, and the coincidences are way to far fetched. Trying to tie Liska and Kovach together like this didn't work for me. I like the new partner. Maybe he needs his own series of books?
