A New Psychological Thriller to Add to Your Reading List

If you, like me, can’t put down the fast-paced, twisty turny novels from authors like Gillian Flynn and Megan Miranda, then you will love Laurie Elizabeth Flynn’s adult novel debut. The Girls Are All So Nice Here follows Ambrosia “Amb” Wellington, a graduate of Wesleyan University, who is mysteriously lured back to her ten-year reunion by an ominous note, “We need to talk about what we did that night.”

Amb reluctantly returns for the reunion to find out who’s behind the mysterious note, only to find that her college BFF Sully has also been lured there. Throughout the requisite outdoor bbqs and formal dinners taking place during the reunion, the two former besties discover that whoever is behind the note wants much more than the truth, they want revenge.

The novel has all of the elements that every good thriller has — twists, intrigue, and mystery, but it also has so much more. This page-turner will bring you right back to your teenage years when hormones were raging, the need to fit in was everything, and ambition could get you into trouble. The Girls Are All So Nice Here examines the complexities of female friendships and the struggle of power between your peers, all while delivering a gut-punching finale that will leave you reading late into the night.
