A book you don't want to out down.
However it's a disturbing read from the start to the end.

Awful story. Three sisters start life with a violent, verbally abusive, alcoholic father. They solve that problem but end up going into the fire from the frying pan. Sadly they stay victims for the rest of their lives. I'm not saying it was poorly written or anything, I just think I wouldn't wanna be them.

It was a really good book. It kept me interested the entire time and I really enjoyed reading the book.

Not really a mystery but more of a dark drama. This book was very engrossing and equally disturbing. It had me crying near the end.

This book had some thrills and suspense, some likable people and some despicable people, and a reasonably fast moving plot. But my blood pressure just about skyrocketed every time Fictional RCMP officer Sargent McPhail made an appearance. Come-on McPhail this is Canada. I don't think you need to wait around (days) for a warrant as two young women are held (sorry allegedly Held) against their will. You know the stuff - exigent circumstances, probable cause - um - like- entering a dwelling to prevent imminent bodily harm or death. That mother should have used some of her boxing expertise on that idiot. But again, this is the police force that brought us the Picton Scandal (that one was for real)
Confession; I think I am so emotional about the Trump scandals in the States that I should probably stay away from novels featuring the victimization of women for a while.

A dark, stupid book about stupid people making stupid choices, birthing stupid people making stupid choices, birthing stupid people making stupid choices . . .

I picked up this book based on a recommendation on The Next Chapter with Shelagh Rodgers and was not impressed. The writing is mediocre and characters are weak. The women in this book are walking victims; it's like watching a horror movie where every girl finds herself alone in the woods wearing only a bikini and having to knock on the door of an abandoned house decorated with skulls - what could go wrong? And they all have stripper names! Dani, Jamie, Crystal, Courtney, Skylar. Jesus these "girls" (the author continues to refer to the 30+ year old women as girls) never have a chance. It's pulpy and quick to read, I'll give it that. But when I finished it I just felt irritated.

Eh, skim-able. Author was a little over the top with this story. One story quickly developed into a second.. then a third. Perhaps too much for one book but too little for a trilogy. Just.. too much.

Quick read. Entertaining.

Good fast paced thriller. Hooks you right in from the beginning.
