Susanne’s Review:

A Girls Trip from Hell!

Oh, how I wanted to love this….

Having read and really liked all of Lucy Clarke’s other books I was eagerly awaiting her next book, sadly One of the Girls did not deliver.

Six women travel to the Greek Island of Aegos for Lexi’s Hen Weekend. What seems like paradise at the start, turns into the exact opposite just a few short days later.

Told in alternating chapters by Lexi, Bella, Robyn, Eleanor, Ana, Fen, and an unknown narrator, we slowly learn each character’s background and the undercurrent that lies beneath the surface of their friendships.

Sadly, none of the women are all that likable and neither is the storyline. Every character is withholding here, a secret, a lie, something, and when all rise to the surface, it isn’t pretty. 

While this was intended to be a suspenseful, twisty read, the despicability of the characters and Bella in particular, made this less so, at least for me. I am, however, only one reader and in this instance, was the wrong reader for this novel.  

Thank you to Penguin Group Putnam G.P. Putnam’s Sons for the arc.

  1. Nice review Susan. I think some authors try to write the most unlikeable characters just to see what they will do.
