She’s the only one who survived…and the only one who can help find the killer. ~ from Goodreads
Spring Girls makes for a great page-turning summer read. It’s more on the lighter side than this dark and twisted reader is used to, and I enjoyed the more comfortable pace to the story. The story is well-paced with reveals that come at just the right time, and the writing flows smoothly, making it a fast one that doesn’t require much from the readers or distraction with drama to the story. My attention was caught right from the start with the captivating writing, and I was turning those pages late into the night. This is usual for me because I fall asleep early with a book in my hand.
Spring Girls is book three of Northampton County series. I didn’t realize it was till I was about 3/4 the way in, and Lindsay mentioned she wanted to read the other ones. We definitely will! It was working really well as a standalone for me, and I didn’t feel like I was missing anything here to connect with the characters Detective Geena Brassard and her partner, Parker Reed.
The characters are engaging with something a little different to them that had me intrigued by them. I enjoyed the mystery to one character that created some great suspense and tension to the story for me. I had a few questions that kept me entertained, and I was anxious to find the answers too.
Lindsay and I felt quite clever and proud of ourselves with our suspicions and were quite excited we were heading in the right direction for a change. Gotta have that once in a while, right? The ending wrapped up well, and while I had my suspicions of who, it’s all in the why, and that exciting reveal left me thinking Hot Dang that was a good one! I highly recommend it!
An engrossing and suspenseful mystery from start to finish!
This is Book 3 in the Northampton County series but reads extremely well as a standalone. I haven’t read Book 1 and 2 and didn’t feel like the storyline lacked background in any way. Although, now that I’ve finished this, I would LOVE to read Book 1 and 2 because I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline, the writing and the characters. This kept me fully engaged. The pace and flow were consistent in keeping my curiosity piqued. The shorter chapters made it easy to breeze through and keep fitting in just “one more chapter”.
This is my first experience with this author and I loved it! I look forward to reading more form her in the future.
