The latest twisty psychological thriller from internationally-bestselling author Lucy Clarke, One of the Girls is the delicious story of a bachelorette trip on a stunning Greek island... that ends in murder.
It was supposed to be the perfect weekend away. Six very different women travel to a sun-soaked Greek island for a bachelorette trip, to celebrate Lexi’s upcoming wedding. From the glorious ocean views to the quaint tavernas and whitewashed streets, the vacation seems too good to be true. But dangerous undercurrents run beneath the sunset swims and midnight cocktails – because each of the women is hiding a secret. Someone is determined to make sure that Lexi’s marriage never happens – and that one of them doesn’t leave the island alive.
Gripping, twisty, and full of sun-soaked suspense, this timely thriller examines the joys of female friendship…as well as the deadly consequences when a relationship goes wrong.
A trip abroad for six 30-something British women leads to tragedy, in this decent if flawed psychological thriller from Clarke (The Blue). Professional dancer-turned-yoga instructor Lexi Lowe is getting married to Ed Tollock in a month, so her close friend and maid of honor, Bella Rossi, throws a bachelorette weekend on the Greek Island of Aegos. Bella's girlfriend, Fen, has an aunt who allows the women to use her secluded villa on the island while she's away. Ed's quirky sister, Eleanor, accompanies them, as do a childhood friend of Lexi and Bella's, Robyn Davies, and Lexi's yoga student turned friend, Ana. Alternating chapters explore the innermost thoughts of the women, each of whom has juicy secrets involving the others in the group. Gradually, jealousy and resentment surface, and someone ends up taking a fatal tumble. The plot, which takes several colorful if farfetched twists, builds to a rushed conclusion followed by an epilogue that wraps up things a tad too neatly. Clarke keeps the pages turning, but this character-driven story focuses more on the relationships among the women than the whodunit aspects. Liane Moriarty fans may want to check this one out.
