Review: The Slumber Party by Shannon Hollinger

Publisher Dscription

Fifteen years ago: On a warm summer’s evening, four childhood friends gather at a slumber party… Before dawn breaks, the nightmare begins. One of them dies. One of them is a killer.

Liz was the bubbly girl-next-door. She could never have imagined how everything would fall apart.

Sami was the clever one, quieter than the others. She was meant to keep all their secrets…

Amy had the voice of an angel, destined for Hollywood. She would never make it there.

Mo was leader of the group, charismatic and protective. But she was not who she appeared to be…

They were childhood friends, on the cusp of the rest of their lives. They’d shared everything with each other. Or so they thought… Until one of them died.

Today: Liz tries not to think about the night that destroyed their lives. She focuses on her beloved husband and their sweet-eyed daughter. But when she receives a note, there’s no more running away: “I’m back. Did you miss me?”

A wave of dizziness crashes over her. Her best friend can’t be back. She’s dead.So who sent the note? What do they know? And, most terrifying of all, are they planning to make her pay for what happened…?

Thrilling Reads Review

Shannon Hollinger’s The Slumber Party is a gripping psychological thriller that takes readers on a wild ride. Although the novel starts off slow, the pace quickly picks up and makes for an engaging read. Despite the fact that the storyline of high school friends making poor choices and subsequently dealing with the consequences has been done before, Hollinger manages to add her own unique twists and turns to the tale. Hollinger’s writing style is refreshingly simple, allowing the story to speak for itself and creating an enjoyable page-turner. Overall, The Slumber Party is an excellent psychological thriller with many unexpected plot twists that will keep readers guessing until the very end.

It's safe to say that Alan Petersen loves mystery and thriller books. He writes high-octane thrillers, hosts the MEET THE THRILLER AUTHOR podcast, and reviews thriller/mystery books.
