Blog Tour: The Wild Girls – Phoebe Morgan*

FOUR FRIENDS.
A LUXURY RETREAT.
IT’S GOING TO BE MURDER.

In a luxury lodge on Botswana’s sun-soaked plains, four friends reunite for a birthday celebration…

THE BIRTHDAY GIRL
Has it all, but chose love over her friends…

THE TEACHER
Feels the walls of her flat and classroom closing in…

THE MOTHER
Loves her baby, but desperately needs a break…

THE INTROVERT
Yearns for adventure after suffering for too long…

Arriving at the safari lodge, a feeling of unease settles over them. There’s no sign of the party that was promised. There’s no phone signal. They’re alone, in the wild.

THE HUNT IS ON.

My thoughts:

This was an interesting thriller from one of my favourite writers of the genre, Hannah, Grace and Alice all feel guilty about that night two years ago that blew up their long time friendship with Felicity and ended with her moving to New York.

Now she’s invited them to a swanky 30th in Botswana, but her messages are vague on plans and none of them have actually spoken to her about anything. Cue terror on the plains, an empty lodge, invisible staff, it’s all very creepy. I would have got out of there as fast as possible.

The way the back story unfolds and a suspect looms into view is nicely unsettling, the terrifying happenings at the glamorous lodge are suitably unnerving and that twist. No spoilers but it’s a good ‘un.
