The Quarry Girls

Quarry Girls by Jess Lourey

Suspense and thrillers are hard to gauge based on other reviews because as readers, our expectations and our desire to be surprised will vary so dramatically. I personally prefer the roller coaster ride, and the suspense, even if I do have a guess who the bad guy is. What I don’t like is having a bad guy being pulled out of left field and you’re left wondering what the heck just happened.

I feel like although I had an idea of who was involved in these abductions, it didn’t take away from the suspense of the story. 

The preface of The Quarry Girls talks about the true story she pulled from really helped set the tone of the book and helped ground me into the world right away. I loved the setting, the small town, the people in the town, and the tunnels that run under the town. The author does a great job with the setting – the quarries, the tunnels, and just embracing the small-town vibe. 

I will definitely seek out more books by Jess Lourey as this was my first time reading one of her books.
