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.

Rating: 4/5

This was a great summer, poolside read for me! The setting was a gorgeous home on the coast of a small Greek island (it definitely gave me inspiration for my honeymoon next year). The premise is a bachelorette party gone wrong.

There is booze and scandal galore. The story hops from the perspectives of each of the women attending the bachelorette. We learn a little about each woman and their connection to the bride. We have childhood friends, a soon-to-be sister-in-law, and a newer friend. As we switch pov, we also learn each woman’s thoughts on the other women. We slowly begin to see that everyone has something to hide and that these women are connected in more ways than just knowing the bride.

It’s fast-paced and easy to get through. If you’re into a juicy scandal, think reality tv in book form (except there’s a murder) you will devour this.

Have you read this book? What are your thoughts? I’d love to know!
