    Hold on to your hats, Mystery Readers. People who like creepy and suspense, you might want to, too. Kylie Brant weaves an intricate plot, in which she tries something out of the norm from her other thrillers. Labeling several POV characters, throughout Pretty Girls Dancing, she lets you into their lives with deep point of view writing, which after only a few pages, I could not put down. By the time I finished this book, I could have sworn these people were real.

    Hold on to your hats, Mystery Readers. People who like creepy and suspense, you might want to, too. Kylie Brant weaves an intricate plot, in which she tries something out of the norm from her other thrillers. Labeling several POV characters, throughout Pretty Girls Dancing, she lets you into their lives with deep point of view writing, which after only a few pages, I could not put down. By the time I finished this book, I could have sworn these people were real.

    Ms. Brant writes superb teenage characters and if you like YA, you will be drawn in as well. She creates an unlikely cast of down-and-out heroes you'll be following throughout the book. (Guess the teacher and mother of five knows these people.)

    In Pretty Girls Dancing, no one is one hundred percent good and no one is one hundred percent bad -- well..... I don't do spoilers. But the list of suspects is long, which is why I say mystery readers will LOVE this.

    I read for emotion and to see good triumph over evil. In Pretty Girls Dancing, Kylie Brant delivers. I received an advanced reader copy of this book and I gladly give it five stars for its uniqueness, scintillating writing and twists and turns I never saw coming.

    I received a free e-copy of Pretty Girls Dancing by Kylie Brant from NetGalley for my honest review. This is an A++ Suspense novel. This book hooks you in from the first couple pages. This is a story of a young girl, Whitney, who was kidnapped 7 years ago and her body has still not been found. Now 7 years later, another girl, Kelsey is missing. The police believe both girls were taken by the Ten Mile Killer. This is a very tragic story that will pull on your heart strings, especially if you have

This novel was written with great characters and I thoroughly enjoyed how each character had their own version of what happened, truths, lies, secrets, etc. You get to hear how each character was affected by the kidnappings. Everyone has secrets!

    A psychological look into the lives of 5 people effected by a serial killer.

    When an already imperfect family suffers a devastating loss it shatters their foundation and causes irreparable damage. The mother, Claire Willard, a mental mess since her daughter Kelsey was taken 7 years ago.

    A psychological look into the lives of 5 people effected by a serial killer.

    When an already imperfect family suffers a devastating loss it shatters their foundation and causes irreparable damage. The mother, Claire Willard, a mental mess since her daughter Kelsey was taken 7 years ago. The younger sister, Janie who before her sister was taken suffered from a social anxiety and has struggled to keep her head above water even more since she went missing. And the father, David Willard who is rife with guilt over something from the past.

    Mark Foster is a Special Agent with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations, investigating the latest disappearance. He is also a father and husband whose dedication to his job with the Ohio BCI puts his marriage on the line.

    Whitney DeVries, is the latest victim taken by the Ten Mile Killer. She struggles to stay alive through his sick twisted games and gains strength from personal notes she is finding in her prison from the last girl that was there – Kelsey Willard.

    This was not a pretty story and for the most part is depressing. The human mind is such a fragile thing and once a crack forms it can bring even the toughest to their knees, and if they don't have the will to fight, can destroy them.

    I have read a lot of dark thrillers. I couldn't put this book down. I was sad and riveted. I needed to know who was this horrible killer. This book was different because...there was no light for me at the end of this tunnel, well there was a survivor.

    But what a tough look at the families of a victim. The utter nightmare that engulfs their lives. This book was very well written. This author is a talented voice in this genre. This is a book that will stay with me.

    Kylie Brant is a well-known author who has never failed in well-written stories with convincible, engaging characters. This crime fiction's story line is crisp and riveting.

    Many thanks to the author / Thomas & Mercer / Netgalley for the digital copy. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

    Pretty Girls Dancing was an engrossing mystery/suspense. It caught my attention right away, and held my interest all the way through. Most of the characters were flawed, but I really liked a few of them. Others, not so much. I throughly enjoyed the book and would love to see it turn into a series with Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent Mark Foster as the lead character.

    Pretty Girls Dancing was an engrossing mystery/suspense. It caught my attention right away, and held my interest all the way through. Most of the characters were flawed, but I really liked a few of them. Others, not so much. I throughly enjoyed the book and would love to see it turn into a series with Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent Mark Foster as the lead character.

    This book opens with the abduction of a teenager, Whitney DeVries. Mark Foster is sent in to work the case of Whitney DeVries. In order to be thorough, he re-examines evidence and witnesses in the abduction of Kelsey Willard seven years earlier from a nearby town. Before long, he finds some commonalities in their cases and possible links to others that make him question whether the two kidnappings could be the work of a longtime serial killer. Kelsey's parents, Claire and David, are keeping secrets that could have hampered the investigation into her disappearance, and it looks like Whitney's father may have his own secrets. Kelsey's teenaged sister, Janie, who has long suffered from selective mutism due to social anxiety, becomes interested in the abduction of Whitney and gathers information that starts to break the case open for Mark. As the investigation deepens and secrets begin to come to light, Mark must figure out the ties between the two cases if he has a chance to save Whitney before it's too late.

    This was a great suspense! I really liked the investigator, Mark Foster, kidnap victim Whitney DeVries, and the sister of another victim, Janie Willard. The storyline was fast paced and had plenty of action. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing a copy of the book in return for an honest review.

    Decent story. It was slow-paced but still kept me interested throughout the whole thing. Janie, Mark, and Whitney were the best drawn of the characters in the story. Everyone else felt underdeveloped.

    The reveal of the Perp was anti-climatic for me and felt like it came out of left field. For me, at least. I'll give the author this, it was clever but could have been better done.

    Someone mentioned this a "dark thriller" Didn't it myself personally, yes it twisted in some places but it didn't feel any more so than other thrillers I've read (Maybe I just haven't read enough of em haha) *shrugs*

    Recommend? Unsure, but glad I got to try this without wasting my money or gas (not meant in a bad way).

  • Xavier (CharlesXplosion)

    A sub-par, slow burn crime procedural that fails to deliver a compelling, twisted thriller as it is marketed as. However, for what the story was, it kept my attention , which is definitely a plus in my book.

    1.5 STARS

    Whitney, a young teen is missing, reminiscent of Kelsey a girl who vanished seven years ago.

    Told from the third person points of view of Kelsey’s parents and younger sister, as well as Whitney and a detective investigating both cases as linked to a serial killer, PRETTY GIRLS DANCING is a story with a great premise and lackluster execution.

    Kelsey’s sister Janie, who suffered from selective mutism and extreme anxiety was the most interesting character in the story. Despite her challenge

    1.5 STARS

    Whitney, a young teen is missing, reminiscent of Kelsey a girl who vanished seven years ago.

    Told from the third person points of view of Kelsey’s parents and younger sister, as well as Whitney and a detective investigating both cases as linked to a serial killer, PRETTY GIRLS DANCING is a story with a great premise and lackluster execution.

    Kelsey’s sister Janie, who suffered from selective mutism and extreme anxiety was the most interesting character in the story. Despite her challenges she had the most moxie and personality. The other characters felt somewhat cliché.

    The story moved at a snail’s pace, lacking the tension I should have felt. PRETTY GIRLS DANCING had its share of plausible suspects, the perp proved to be the least interesting. The ending left me feeling meh.

    I chose PRETTY GIRLS DANCING as my free Kindle first choice for December. It wasn’t a terrible read, just below average and forgettable.
