The Prized Girl. An impressive debut novel – a good solid mystery thriller.
Updated: Feb 10
Who killed Jenny the former teenage pageant queen? Through dual story lines we learn of Jenny’s life leading up to her murder and in present day, we hear Virginia’s story. Virginia is Jenny’s troubled half-sister who is detached from the family, attending the funeral barely noticed, and then takes an interest in learning the truth about the murder after the police appear to be rushing to judgment on their main suspect. The story held my interest to the end. Many thanks to Edelweiss and Dutton Books for the opportunity to read The Prized Girl in advance. Published on January 14, 2020.
Mystery/Psychological Thriller. 4 out of 5 stars.
