Book Review – The Girls Weekend by Jody Gehrman @jodygehrman @crooklanebks #BookReview #BookBlogger #suspense

A college reunion like never before was this when 5 women met up for a weekend, and one disappeared after a night of debauchery. But everyone had patchy memory. Were they perhaps drugged?My first book by author Jody Gehrman, the writing portrayed honest emotions. I too felt the same with my college friends: nostalgia, jealousy, friendship, caring. Their past brought a flavor to the present. I was most curious to see how they would react when opportunity revealed itself.The characters were different, and most had their own problems. Survival during a crisis was well shown when they turned on each other. It felt to be quite gossipy. Some parts were worth being on the TV series. Is Netflix listening?Then there was a tiny niggle; I would have been happier if their memories of the night were better linked to the friend’s disappearance and if I were shown a clearer sequence. More suspense would have been always welcome. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the mystery in the plot.The story kept its pace steady, and my interest turned a dial higher with each chapter. I should have easily guessed the ending, but alas… I was too embroiled in the story. I must say that I had fun times with the book.I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.All my reviews can be read hereTheir reunion just became a crime scene . . .June Moody, a thirty-something English professor, just wants to get away from her recent breakup and reunite with girlfriends over summer break. Her old friend and longtime nemesis, Sadie MacTavish, a mega-successful author, invites June and her college friends to a baby shower at her sprawling estate in the San Juan Islands. June is less than thrilled to spend time with Sadie–and her husband, June’s former crush–but agrees to go.The party gets off to a shaky start when old grudges resurface, but when they wake the next morning, they find something worse: Sadie is missing, the house is in shambles, and bloodstains mar the staircase.None of them has any memory of the night before; they wonder if they were drugged. Everyone’s a suspect. Since June had a secret rendezvous with Sadie’s husband, she has plenty of reason to suspect herself. Apparently, so do the cops.Publication Date: August 2020
