Mystery - Thriller
One small town, two missing girls. One black, the other white. One poor, the other an Instagram mogul. One dismissed, the other national news. Authorities state the two cases are not linked, so they are not… right?
Mary is back in her hometown for reasons she is not proud of. When she hears about the disappearance of one of her high school classmates, she tries to dismiss it. Yet, she can’t seem to shake the feeling that this may be a way to repent for the things she has done. As her investigation gets closer to finding the truth, the riskier she becomes. Will she find the truth before the truth finds her?
Catherine Dang's Nice Girls is a rush of pure endurance. Keeping the reader engrossed from beginning to end; tossed from one twist to another turn. Just when you think you’ve got it, an unexpected ending.
With quite a few profane words, and some light sexual content, a rating of 4 out of 5 stars is given. There are some triggers to be weary of from abduction, hit and run, dismemberment, racism, major depressive disorder, anxiety, bulimia, drug abuse, and physical beatings. There is also mention of Catholicism and confession, but not enough to be a religious book of any sort.
If you enjoy a fast paced, cannot wait to turn the page, hold your breath thriller, then Nice Girls is for you. Make sure you do not miss the release on September 7, 2021 as Catherine Dang knocks it out of the park with this debut. Looking forward to see what she creates next.
