REVIEW of The Surviving Girls by Katee Robert

Romantic Suspense / Thriller
Release Date:
May 29th, 2018
Hidden Sins
Book #3
Twelve years ago, Lei Zhang and her friend Emma Nilsson miraculously lived through the notorious Sorority Row Murders that left twenty-one of their sisters dead. Still wrestling with the trauma but finally out of the limelight, Lei and Emma are now devoted to helping other victims find closure. But most disturbing for Lei—beyond the gut-wrenching survivor guilt—is that the killer was her boyfriend. He’s behind bars, but she’ll never lower her guard again.

When a copycat killer targets Lei and Emma, FBI Agent Dante Young is put in charge of anticipating the sociopath’s every move. But what he doesn’t expect is his immediate and overpowering attraction to Lei. The closer they get to each other, the more desperate and terrifying the questions become: Who wants to finish what the killer started—and why?

Now Agent Young vows to protect Lei at all costs. If they have any chance of a future together, first they have to stay alive…

My Thoughts…

Oh my… what a sick, twisted, amazing, wonderful story.    21… yes 21 sorority girls killed in one night by the boyfriend of one of the girls.     From there we learn more about the two girls who survived that night, more about the killer, and the reader feels it all come together in one thrilling book.  

The killer is convicted, spending the rest of his life in prison.   The survivors are living together in a house with safe rooms, security beyond the norm, and fear every day.    I was scared for Emma and Lei.    They survived an event that they have not been able to get past, they live in constant fear of the outside world, and they only have each other.      I cannot imagine their lives but I could picture how they were living.    Their story was described in such detail that I could see their house, feel the fear, and picture how hard they were working to live a life of value.    The hope I had for them was to find happiness, find peace, and be able to step outside of their house being unafraid of the rest of the world.   

The Surviving Girls is a fast pace, thriller full of twists and turns.   I was turning page after page, hoping that the end would come so I could find out what would happen while at the same time hoping the book would never end because I was so into what was going on.    There was a small romance going on and it was the perfect complement to the rest of the book.
