Pretty Girls Dancing Reviews

  • Heather

    Excellent! This is my first book by this author and I am eager to read more of her books! I found it started a little slow but as the book went on, I became more and more invested and engaged in the characters and the story. The last 70-80 pages I was on the edge of my seat! There were family secrets, betrayal and dysfunction all wrapped up in this suspenseful thriller! I highly recommend this book!

    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 children yourself. 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!

    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.

The ending will leave you stunned... I never figured who the killer was... I kept guessing and the reveal completely took me by surprise.

    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).

    3 Stars for

    by Kylie Brant. This mystery details the recent kidnapping of a teenager named Whitney, as well as the kidnapping of teen Kelsey that occurred seven years ago. The two kidnappings may or may not be the work of a serial killer that has never been identified. The book alternates between the point of view of Kelsey’s family members and the law enforcement officer in charge of the case. Brant creates very sympathetic characters in Janie and Claire, the younger sister

    by Kylie Brant. This mystery details the recent kidnapping of a teenager named Whitney, as well as the kidnapping of teen Kelsey that occurred seven years ago. The two kidnappings may or may not be the work of a serial killer that has never been identified. The book alternates between the point of view of Kelsey’s family members and the law enforcement officer in charge of the case. Brant creates very sympathetic characters in Janie and Claire, the younger sister and mother of Kelsey. Claire uses coping mechanisms that are nothing short of self-destructive and Janie becomes the parent in this relationship.

    Brant writes a compelling mystery though the story does begin to drag a bit around the 70% mark. However, the ending of the book came as a total surprise, which to me, is the sign of a worthy whodunnit.

    Thank you to NetGalley, Thomas & Mercer and Kylie Brant for the ARC in exchange for an unbiased review

    2.5 wish it could have been better stars.

    Unfortunately, this was not the book for me. While its premise was good, that of a kidnapper/murderer/psychopath taking girls who were into ballet, the execution of this story was dull and at times haphazard.

    The book was presented by contrasting, in alternate chapters a family who lost their daughter seven years ago, not yet found, and a family just twelve miles away who have just lost their daughter. The chapters are presented in alternate voices and de

    Unfortunately, this was not the book for me. While its premise was good, that of a kidnapper/murderer/psychopath taking girls who were into ballet, the execution of this story was dull and at times haphazard.

    The book was presented by contrasting, in alternate chapters a family who lost their daughter seven years ago, not yet found, and a family just twelve miles away who have just lost their daughter. The chapters are presented in alternate voices and details which connect the families, their secrets, and their present day lives. The police are convinced that this crime has been committed by a person who has taken many girls over the years, some of which have been found, being dressed in tutus and ballet attire.

    So, sorry to say for me the characters were flat, and what could have been an unusual topic for a thriller turned out to be just mediocre.

    Thank you to the author, the publisher, and netgalley for a digital copy of this novel.
