  • Full of suspense and tragedy, mesmerizing

    This is a book filled with suspense. And tragedy. There are not many characters, but they are so well developed, with such deep stories. They have all experienced heartbreak and loss of hope, life hasn’t turned out like they hoped it would. Missed chances? Fate? Something they did? Their interactions are fascinating as they weave in and out and cross over and back. Everyone is connected to something that connects to another one of them. But you can’t figure it all out, you are surprised over and over again. On the surface Pretty Things seems to be about a grifter and a shallow rich girl, and a big scheme. But it’s so much more. I guess it’s true that no one is all good or all bad, you can’t make a snap judgement or take everyone at face value. Nina grew up with a single mom, who was a grifter and the picture of the helpless woman. She always told Nina she could do and be more, that she had a FUTURE. And Nina believed it. Until she didn’t. She worked hard but still that future seemed elusive, and then her mom got sick and she had to earn money for treatment using the only role model she had – a grifter. Vanessa is the rich, spoiled heiress who grew up in the very, very, very dysfunctional family. Who never felt like she was enough, did enough, was noticed enough, especially after her mother committed suicide. Everyone is flawed but everyone (well, almost everyone) also has redeeming qualities. They want love or security or fortune – or just to be seen. Actions from the past changed the future, and some actions taking place now are going to set things in motion that can’t be undone. It’s an unsettling book, but mesmerizing. Leaving you unsure, flipping back and forth as to who you should hope wins, who you feel the most sorry for, who is sincere and who is lying and pretending to be someone they are not. Pretty Things is extraordinary, touching, thought-provoking and a very enjoyable read. I received an advance copy from publisher Random House. All opinions are my own. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it without hesitation.

  • Twisted and Mesmerizing!!!

    This novel was so mesmerizing, it was difficult to put down. So dark and deceitful, twisted and wild from start to finish. I highly recommend this book and feel it needs to be made into a film. It’s that awesome. I will also be looking into all of her other works as her writing and imagination are truly phenomenal. 5 star read 💯
