  • A Masterpiece!

    The Girl She Wanted is an excellent psychological thriller by one of my favourite authors, KL Slater. In this, my sixth KL Slater novel, sisters Carrie and Alexa live in Alexa’s family home. Alexa has a very young daughter, Florence and she relies on Carrie for support. When Carrie is suspended from her job as a senior nurse, Alexa is disbelieving as she knows first-hand just how caring Carrie is. However, Alexa's husband, Perry has concerns about Carrie and doesn't want her around. When Florence is hurt whilst being looked after by Carrie, Alexa begins to have doubts. Full of undercurrents, this was a cleverly plotted page-turner with many twists leading up to an exciting conclusion. The narrative was from multiple perspectives and the reader was not privy to key pieces of information, helping to maintain the high levels of ambiguity and intrigue. Long-held secrets, family dynamics, obsession, and suspicion all had a place in this fabulous and compulsive thriller. Deeply layered and strongly character-driven, this masterful tale provided many curveball moments along the way. This is a novel not to be missed! I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Bookouture via NetGalley at my request, and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant!

    Once again I find myself sitting here writing a review while in awe of K.L. Slater’s talent as an author. There is no book that she has released that I haven’t rated as a 5 star read and The Girl She Wanted is just another one that deservedly gets this rating! K.L. Slater has crafted a story that really had me hooked and caught up its web, unable to untangle myself free until the last page. There was never any doubt that I would be taken on a thrilling journey as is always the case when reading one of her books and this one was definitely a thrilling journey indeed! The story focuses on sisters Alexa and Carrie and how their relationship is tested when Carrie, a nurse, is accused of killing two patients at the hospital she works for. Alexa firmly believes in her sisters innocence, but when under Carrie’s care, sees her daughter Florence get injured, this causes Alexa to wonder if Carrie is as innocent as she claims to be. I love how this story focuses on two sisters and how over the course of the book, their relationship changes from one of strength to doubt as Carrie’s erratic behaviour starts to raise red flags in Alexa’s mind. It also makes you think how you would react if this was your sister in this same position and how you would handle it. As always K.L Slater has created a great cast of characters that are both likeable and unlikable and each play out their roles perfectly. She does a great job of keeping the reader second guessing Carrie and how Alexa’s obsession in seeking the truth, uncovers more than she bargained for! All up The Girl She Wanted is a first class read that is gripping, intense and a real page turner in every sense of the word. K.L Slater has produced another fantastic story that will have you addicted front the outset and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for us next. It was a pleasure to be able to read and review The Girl She Wanted which I highly recommend.

  • Loved!!!!!!

    My Review: I love, love, love this author so much. Every time I see she has a new book coming out I just have to read it. Her books are my weakness and I will drop everything I have planned so I can finish it in just one sitting. If you have read anything by this author you know what I’m saying is true. This book is about a sisters bond that can not be broken. One sister is accused of a horrendous act. The other sister trying to clear her name at all costs. But is their love enough? Can their bond be broken? Did her sister really do it? Can she trust her sister? These are some of the questions that are answered by the end of the book. I want to start off by saying you can never go wrong when you pick up a K.L. Slater book. I’ve read many of her books and none of them disappoint. They are like fine wine, they get better and better over time. The characters really did this book justice. At first I hated the main character Alexa. I thought she was passive and very unsure about herself. She did grow on me as the book progressed. By the end of the book I ended up loving her. She turned into a fearless courageous woman who wouldn’t take any slack from no one. Definitely someone I could look up to. The plot was excellent too!!!!! It was a medical murder mystery with a bunch of surprises for the reader. Normally I’m not that into these types of books but the way the author threw all those twists and turns at you made me a fan. Wow, wow, wow on that ending. I would’ve never guessed what really was going on. It definitely was a pleasant surprise just like opening presents on Christmas morning. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Loved it!

    Alexa lives with her husband Perry, their daughter Florence and her sister Carrie, a temporary tenant after a bitter divorce. This is about the only true statement I can write about The Girl She Wanted, an awesomely twisted psychological thriller that will keep you reading and uncovering one unexpected surprise after another. Alexa is fragile, although you don’t know why, and seemingly unable to take care of her young daughter without the help of her sister Carrie, a nurse at a nearby hospital. Her vulnerability isn’t helped by her husband’s frequent long absences. He works on an oil rig in the North Sea and is gone for weeks at a time. When Carrie is arrested for the murders of two patients on her ward, Alexa is her fierce defender. However, as the evidence mounts against Carrie, Alexa weakens. And when Perry turns against her and Florence is injured while Carrie watches her, Alexa makes a decision that will have unforeseen consequences that affect her entire family. Although I loved this mystery and was totally shocked by the conclusion, I think that the title is totally wrong. I have no idea what it relates to. However, you won’t be able to put this one down. 5 stars. Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and K.L. Slater for this ARC.

  • Keeps Your Attention!

    Another smash hit from K.L. Slater! This story is multi-layered with lots going on. It's a whodunnit with plenty of twists and turns and you never know what is really going on until the end. There are lots of delicious leads and very well developed characters who keep you enthralled right to the very last page!
