Pretty Little Things Reviews
Pretty Little Things is such a gripping thriller. Several girls have gone missing, which is naturally a terrifying ordeal for all the families in a close-knit community. And then the bodies are found, and the nightmare begins. The novel is cleverly plotted with red herrings throughout, so the reader is constantly trying to guess who the killer is. The horrifying realisation is revealed that the killer is someone close to home. The dialogue is tense and well done. Put a woman with partial amnesia ...more
Pretty Little Things by TME Walsh - wow!! This was my first book by this author but most definitely will not be the last!
I got hooked into this one fairly early on, the story has me needing to find out more. Charlotte was in a major car accident 6 months ago, leaving her extremely vulnerable. She lives in a small town where everyone knows each other outside of Milton Keynes. She lives with her husband and teenager daughter.
There is a murderer on the loose... teenage girls are being taken and now ...more
With thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review..
I enjoyed reading T.M.E Walsh's three books in the DCI Claire Winters series, So I was excited when I heard the author was due to release a new book featuring DI Madeleine Wood.
Pretty Little Fears is not for the squeamish. There was a killer at work targeting teenage girls in the small villages around Milton Keynes. Four girls were missing until they were found by kids in a disused holiday village ...more
Pretty Little Things was nothing like I expected. A twisted serial killer, gritty murder cops, a mom determined to keep her daughter safe – it had all the elements to make a gripping, ‘unputdownable’ psychological thriller. But the feelings it ended up evoking in me were pity and sadness. I want a psychological thriller to thrill, excite, and make me look over my shoulder, not feel sorry for the guilty party. Also, I felt the story drag in some parts. I usually read very fast, but this book took ...more

Ohhhhhh my word! I'm not afraid of gruesome novels by any means, but this one is Gruesome with a capital G! Four young girls went missing, and now four young girls have been found. Dead. With the formal identification of the bodies taking place, locals (as well as the Police) have their fingers crossed that they aren't the bodies of the missing girls. But they are. Who in their right mind would kill four young girls, th ...more
DCI Claire is not going to have it easy with this one. Six teenage girls are missing. The bodies are not found and when four are found in one area next to each other, it seems the killer is almost egging them on to try to find him. Other than the fact that they are local girls, there seems to be no common link. Typical teenagers confronting authority both society and at home a couple of them had threatened to run away and had done so previously. What had made them accept a lift on a lonely road ...more
I loved every minute of this pacy crime thriller. Split over multiple points of view, including DI Madeleine Wood, village local Charlotte and the chilling ‘Anon’, the book kept me turning the pages.
The story starts with the discovery of four missing teenaged girls - a story that’s gripped the small village. Understandably, mother Charlotte goes to great lengths to protect her own teenaged daughter whilst trying to overcome the after-effects of a terrible accident. I don’t want to give anything ...more
"It’s bad when the girls go missing. It’s worse when the girls are found......"
I've always said the more twisted, sick and gruesome a serial killer is in a story then that's my perfect book and oh my, did "Pretty Little Things" fulfil that requirement!
I especially like when chapters are dedicated to the killer and we hear their thoughts and emotions and the enticing opening chapter by the killer really was quite terrifying. I also like to consider my self to be quite broad minded about a story ...more
