Those Girls by Chevy Stevens

by:  Chevy Stevens
published by:  St. Martin's Press
publish date:  July 7, 2015

Life has never been easy for the three Campbell sisters. Jess, Courtney, and Dani live on a remote ranch in Western Canada where they work hard and try to stay out of the way of their father’s fists. One night, a fight gets out of hand and the sisters are forced to go on the run, only to get caught in an even worse nightmare when their truck breaks down in a small town. Events spiral out of control and a chance encounter with the wrong people leaves them in a horrific and desperate situation. They are left with no choice but to change their names and create new lives.  

I read on Facebook Chevy Stevens wondering why people who don't like her books continuing to read them and give them negative reviews. I don't really have an answer for that, but I will say that Chevy Stevens is very consistent with what she writes.  When you pick up one of her books you know you're going to get some kind of horrific torture inflicted on a young girl in the Pacific northwest.  I've read almost all her books and they're all pretty good.

Those Girls is about 3 sisters that suffer terribly at the hands of their father only to kill him out of desperation one night.  That forces them to go on the run.  When their truck breaks down in a small farming town they find help in 2 young brothers from a local ranch.  However, those brothers turn out to be their worst nightmare.

I liked this book.  It was a Chevy Stevens book, though.  It was dark and graphic and the characters suffer terribly.  However, it's an interesting story of survival.  I would recommend it if you like that type of story.

I liked all three books I've ready by her: THAT NIGHT, STILL MISSING, and NEVER KNOWING so I'll probably like this one too. This is the first I've heard of it so will add it to my TBR.
