PRETTY GUILTY WOMEN – Gina LaManna (out now!)
I think this mug from my cousin is just the best and I need to go find one of my own
Four Women. Four Confessions. One Murder.
Something has gone terribly wrong at the Banks wedding. A man is dead. Four different women rush to offer confessions, each insisting that they committed the crime — alone.
Ginger is holding her family together by a thread, and this wedding weekend is not the fabulous getaway she anticipated.
Kate has enough money to buy her way out of anything. Well, almost anything.
Emily can’t shake her reputation or her memories, and she’s planning to drown this whole vacation in a bottle.
Lulu’s got ex-husbands to spare, and another on the way — as soon as she figures out what the devil the current husband is up to behind her back.
Why would they confess to the same murder? Only they know — and they’re not telling. This page-turning novel explores the depths of friendship and the truths we love to ignore.
My Thoughts: 4/5 stars
I thought this was a fun mystery! Definitely on the lighter side for those of you looking for a quick mystery/whodunit for the end of the summer. PRETTY GUILTY WOMEN alternates between the perspectives of four women that have all confessed to a murder – but how could it be all four of them? We also get the snippets from the interrogation transcripts and they help fill in some blanks as the story progresses.
All four women converge to a weekend long wedding celebration of an old friend. Ginger is hoping this will be the weekend giveaway she desperately needs from her stressful home life. Kate is a successful lawyer and is trying to escape her relationship troubles. Emily is prepared to spend the weekend drowning her memories in a bottle. Lulu is an elegant woman who is on her fourth husband and is certain he sneaking around behind her back.
All four women have quite the personalities and there is plenty of drama that comes with the story. I thought it was a fun whodunit and I liked how the story unfolded. LaManna keeps you guessing – why would all four women confess to the murder and say that they acted alone? What really happened? Who is guilty? This was a quick read and the pacing was great – the author kept me sucked in the whole time! I would highly recommend this one to those wanting a lighter mystery read.
