Pretty Little Things Reviews
What a fantastic psychological thriller! I have not read any of this author’s previous books but will certainly be catching up on them now. Where do I start? Charlotte was involved in an accident where she nearly lost her life. Her memory has been affected by this and she is suffering from PSTD from the accident. In the village where she lives with her husband and teenage daughter, young girls are going missing and Charlotte becomes obsessed about her daughter’s safety as it seems that there is ...more
While a terrible read, Pretty Little Things could make a superb subject for book club discussion. I can't explain why I rated this book so low without introducing spoilers and in fairness must admit that what repelled me might fascinate other readers. Though from early in the book I sometimes suspected the character who turns out to the responsible for the abduction and murders of the teenaged girls, I found the actual explanation of the perpetrator's motives totally unbelievable and unacceptabl ...more

Ohhhhhh my word! I'm not afraid of gruesome novels by any means, but this one is Gruesome with a capital G! Four young girls went missing, and now four young girls have been found. Dead. With the formal identification of the bodies taking place, locals (as well as the Police) have their fingers crossed that they aren't the bodies of the missing girls. But they are. Who in their right mind would kill four young girls, th ...more
I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
Teenage girls go missing and are all found murdered, this is a multi PoV given from a mother whom is desperate to keep her daughter safe now that teenage girls are being murdered close to their home. The other povs are from a cop on the case and the anonymous killer. It's merely a race against time as the killer continues to strike again and again, will the cops find the killer and seek justice for the girls?
I want to star ...more
4.5 stars for a really brilliant thriller..It seemed that this was going to be pretty straightforward but oh no it wasn’t at all ..what an ending!! I was totally shocked and oh how I love that. Many many thanks to T.M.E, Walsh for writing a book with a truly gobsmacking twist I loved it.
"It’s bad when the girls go missing. It’s worse when the girls are found......"
I've always said the more twisted, sick and gruesome a serial killer is in a story then that's my perfect book and oh my, did "Pretty Little Things" fulfil that requirement!
I especially like when chapters are dedicated to the killer and we hear their thoughts and emotions and the enticing opening chapter by the killer really was quite terrifying. I also like to consider my self to be quite broad minded about a story ...more
I was very excited to read Pretty Little Things. A psychological thriller with unexpected twists described as the ultimate page turner? - I say, 'ANYTIME!'
The book starts really well - police trying to catch a serial killer when four dead bodies of teenage girls are found in a dumpster. The main story teller is a local woman - Charlotte who has a teenage daughter of her own and is sick with worries about her. Charlotte had a serious car accident six months ago and is lucky to be alive. She is t ...more
Pretty Little Things by TME Walsh - wow!! This was my first book by this author but most definitely will not be the last!
I got hooked into this one fairly early on, the story has me needing to find out more. Charlotte was in a major car accident 6 months ago, leaving her extremely vulnerable. She lives in a small town where everyone knows each other outside of Milton Keynes. She lives with her husband and teenager daughter.
