Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Did I enjoy this book: Yes. It was phenomenal.
This story opened with the best first line ever. I’d love to quote it here for you, but I don’t have permission from the author, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.
I was hooked by the first sentence, and I didn’t put the book down until the final scene. The entire story was fast paced, unpredictable, dark, and wonderfully entertaining.
I really enjoy the short e-books that are gaining popularity. It opens up a whole new world of possibilities when writers aren’t limited by the confines of traditional publishing. Flora takes this opportunity to create something special to a whole new level.
Would I recommend it: Whatever your preferred genre, a good story is a good story. Girls’ Night Out smacks it right out of the ballpark. So yes! I recommend it.
About the book – from Goodreads: When the man who date-raped a friend is found not guilty, the women in her book group decide to take matters into their own hands.
Mystery and true crime writer Kate Clark Flora’s fascination with people’s criminal tendencies began in the Maine attorney general’s office. Deadbeat dads, people who hurt their kids, and employers’ acts of discrimination aroused her curiosity about human behavior. Her books include seven “strong woman” Thea Kozak mysteries and three gritty police procedurals in her star-reviewed Joe Burgess series. Redemption was the 2013 Maine Literary Award winner for Crime Fiction. Her Edgar-nominated true crime story, Finding Amy, has been optioned for a movie. Flora has also published 15 crime stories in various anthologies.
When she’s not writing or teaching at Grub Street in Boston, Flora is in her garden, waging a constant battle against critters, pests, and her husband’s lawn mower. She’s been married for 35 years to a man who still makes her laugh. She has two wonderful sons, a movie editor and a scientist, two lovely daughters-in-law, and four rescue “granddogs,” Frances, Otis, Harvey, and Daisy.
