Emma Danelski was very hopeful when she pledged Theta Pi at Merriwether University thinking this would bring friendship, fun, and popularity to her college years. However, Emma found herself in the midst of a horrible secret that she has no choice but to keep amidst the petty rules, bullying, and manipulation she had come to face at the sorority.
But then even more terrible news hits the sisterhood when one of their own commits suicide by jumping from a local bridge. The investigation seems to surround Emma as she finds herself wondering just what had happened to her sorority sister. Now Emma needs to decide what secrets are worth keeping and to what limits will she go to protect hers.
Pretty, Nasty, Lovely by Rosalind Noonan is one of those books that despite it’s flaws it still kept my attention and kept the pages turning to find out just what would end up happening in the story. I would warn though that the beginning to this one was quite disturbing as there are hints to a murdered baby but the reader is not given the details to the event until much later on in the book.
Between the shock of the start of the book and then the upcoming suicide the plot was what pushed the book all throughout. The characters didn’t seem to be very well developed at times as the book jumps from one event to another. I thought to myself several times I would have liked a bit more development and flow to the action but in the end I would rate this one at 3.5 stars as I did become completely hooked in knowing the outcome.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
