About Reckless Girls:

Lux McAllister and her boyfriend, Nico, take on a job to sail two women to a remote island in the South Pacific. It is the opportunity of a lifetime because they can get things paid off and they can move away from Hawaii. On top of that Lux is eager to travel and get away from her dead-end job. She quickly connects with the girls who say they want to travel off the beaten path. After traveling the ocean for days Meroe island is in their midst and it’s as beautiful as they thought.

As they pull up to the shore they don’t expect to see anyone there. What was once a party of four is now a party of six. They all get along and have fun. When a skeevy stranger shows up on the island the balance of the group is disrupted. Cracks begin to form and it seems like some of the passengers weren’t completely honest. When they realize they are more isolated from civilization than they thought, it starts to feel like the island is closing in on them. Lux begins to owner if they’ll make it off alive when one goes missing and another shows up dead.

Reckless Girls

What I thought:

So, I picked up Reckless Girls because I read Rachel’s last book called The Wife Upstairs. I loved that book and I figured this would be the same way. And to be honest it really was. It is very well-paced and does a good job of keeping you interested. Reckless Girls is a psychological thriller that I recommend reading during the summer because it is a tropical read and obviously deals with a deserted island.

The characters are well done and stand off the page. They are all different and completely stand out from one another which makes the book even better. You become fully invested in each and every one of them or at least I did. Traveling like this is something I would love to do. Granted I would NOT want that ending. The story is full of twists and turns and I loved it.

To me, this story is best to read in the summer or when you’re ready for summer. It gets you in the mood to travel or to maybe stay home with how things ended. Stories like this kind of make me wonder how I would handle things if I were to show up on a deserted island only for others to be there.

Rachel is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors and this is at the top of my favorite books this year at five stars! I hope you enjoy the book as much a I did!
