    *I got a free copy via Amazon First Reads (if I typed the new name wrong, please let me know) *previously known as Kindle First* All my opinions are my own:).----2.5 stars... 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 o...

    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 w...

    1.5 STARS Whitney, a young teen is missing, reminiscent of Kelsey a girl who vanished seven years ago.Told from the third person points of view of Kelsey’s parents and younger sister, as well as Whitney and a detective investigating both cases as linked to a serial killer, PRETTY GIRLS DANCING is a story with a great premise and lackluster execution.Kelsey’s sister Janie, who suffered from selective mutism and extreme anxiety was the most int...

    Hold on to your hats, Mystery Readers. People who like creepy and suspense, you might want to, too. Kylie Brant weaves an intricate plot, in which she tries something out of the norm from her other thrillers. Labeling several POV characters, throughout Pretty Girls Dancing, she lets you into their lives with deep point of view writing, which after only a few pages, I could not put down. By the time I finished this book, I could have sworn these p...

    I enjoyed the book. I’m confused on how the killer was identified.

    I got this as a Kindle First selection earlier this month, and I was so excited to start it. The prose sound different from a lot of the books I had been reading lately, so once I saw it as a selection, I had to choose it. I am glad I did.This book was nice and twisty, you start to think that it's predictable, and at one point I was very bummed out, and then, hello game changer!!! Everything you thought had happened is totally wrong! Loved it! I ...

    Pretty Girls Dancing, by Kylie Brant, is everything you want in a straight suspense novel, including ripped from the headlines action. The different points of view are well marked and serve as chapter headings; I really liked the instant recognition of which character’s head I was going to be in. Each POV adds another subtle layer to the overall story. Taken in whole it is a multifaceted, deeply layered, suspense thriller. Though many of the cl...

    Not a Favorite BookThis book was my introduction to Kylie Brant. The story was basically interesting but there were times it dragged on too long. It took me 3 1/2 days to finish which was longer than normal for me. I felt a great deal of empathy for the kidnapped girls and their families but I was glad to finish so I could move on to some very good books I have waiting in my to be read list. All this tells me I was not reading a five star book. R...

    I looked forward to my opportunities to squeeze a chapter in and was even a little sad when I finished and realized I wouldn't hear anything more about the characters. It seems like many reviewers thought this moved slowly but I don't agree. I wonder if readers are becoming used to mystery novels moving at breakneck speeds with lots of chase scenes and guns... so unrealistic. Comparatively speaking, I suppose this was slow, but it was a pace that...
