Life has never been easy for the three Campbell sisters. Jess, Courtney, and Dani live on a remote ranch in Western Canada where they work hard and try to stay out of the way of their father's temper. One night, a fight gets out of hand and the sisters are forced to go on the run, only to get caught in an even worse nightmare when their truck breaks down in a small town. As events spiral out of control they find themselves in a horrifying situation and are left with no choice but to change their names and create new lives.
Eighteen years later, they are still trying to forget what happened that summer. But when one of the sisters goes missing, followed closely by her niece, they are pulled back into the past. And this time there's nowhere left to run.
With Those Girls Chevy Stevens presents her most visceral thriller yet: an unforgettable portrait of desperation, loyalty, and evil. A story of survival...and revenge.
At the start of this gripping thriller from bestseller Stevens (That Night), the three teenage Campbell sisters flee their rural Canadian home in the summer of 1997 after the youngest, Jess, kills their widower father, an abusive alcoholic. When the sisters' truck breaks down near a town called Cash Creek, they encounter Brian and Gavin Luxton, sadistic scions of a local ranching family, who rape and torture them for five days until the girls escape. Eighteen years later, the Campbells live under different names in Vancouver, but the past still haunts them. When Crystal, the middle sister, experiences a troubling flashback, she decides to return to Cash Creek to kill the Luxton brothers. Stevens skillfully builds suspense, but often draws characters with broad strokes, sacrificing depth for pacing, and a few niggling details (such as the timing of Brian's marriage) remain unexplained. Despite its flaws, this fast-paced nail-biter will keep readers up late and may evoke a few tears. Announced first printing of 150,000.

Couldn't hardly put it down!! Great thriller!
I ❤️ Chevy Stevens
This probably my favourite book by Chevy Stevens but it's hard to pick one when all of them are so good! I stayed up too late reading, read in the morning and was late for work and found myself thinking about the characters throughout the day. There were tears... seriously! This lady is seriously talented!
Any time someone asks if I know of a good book, I smile and ask if they like psychological thrillers, if they do I go on and on!
My first book by Chevy Stevens and I already love her!
Great book with strong characters and a thrilling plot. I loved the connections and the writing style. It was for sure not my last book from her. I strongly recommend it. Read it, enjoy it and love it. Such a great book and a great author. I am going to read more of Chevy Stevens books and I am pretty sure I am going to love them too!
