Years ago, in the town of Saxon Falls, young Kelsey Willard disappeared and was presumed dead. The tragedy left her family with a fractured life—a mother out to numb the pain, a father losing a battle with his own private demons, and a sister desperate for closure. But now another teenage girl has gone missing. It’s ripping open old wounds for the Willards, dragging them back into a painful past, and leaving them unprepared for where it will take them next.
Bureau of Criminal Investigation agent Mark Foster has stumbled on uncanny parallels in the lives of the two missing girls that could unlock clues to a serial killer’s identity. That means breaking down the walls of the Willards’ long-guarded secrets and getting to a truth that is darker than he bargained for. Now, to rescue one missing girl, he must first solve the riddles that disappeared with another: Kelsey Willard herself. Dead or alive, she is his last hope.
Pretty Girls Dancing was a tough read at times. I found myself angry, wanting to find the person responsible for kidnapping innocent little girls and ripping their throat out.
But it was a page turner, a story I found myself interested in enough to recommend to a few friends before even finishing it. I was surprised by the ending but also found a few stones left unturned. I’m not sure if the author did it purposely, but I intend to keep my eyes peeled for another installment; just in case.
