Read something else if you're curious about this one. The Girls Weekend is a reunion of college friends as well as a baby shower for one of the girls. Very flat and juvenile characters. These 'girls' do not act or think like someone close to being 40. This book is more of a cozy mystery than a thriller. ( )

Good summer read

This is a very readable novel in the mold of Gone Girl. June Moody gets dumped by her boyfriend and on the spur of the moment goes to a reunion of college friends being hosted by their fabulously successful classmate, the author Sadie MacTavish, at her seaside estate. Sadie disappears, her body is found, and, after June takes up sleuthing, the perps are eventually unveiled.

If you like this kind of book and need a quick read, you will be satisfied. June is quite bright and tends to approach things with her brain, which is refreshing. The remaining characters are not quite as well done. Even though you will be able to identify the models for a few of them, the familiarity probably won't bother you.

I received a review copy of "The Girls Weekend" by Jody Gehrman from Crooked Lane Books through NetGalley.com. ( )

I liked it..
It wouldn't be the first book to reach out off of the shelves to recommend, it would be the fifth or sixth perhaps?

Here we are with a group of ladies who were super close in college, but now have all separated to live their lives. Most all went in very separate directions.

June Moody is in her late thirties and a community college professor, who was just broken up with over a text message! What kind of person would do that?? Jerk.
Well June reaches out to Em (a college buddy whom she is still close to), to respond to an email they received from Sadie (their old college friend who has it all: money, child, estates, and the attractive college professor). Sadie wants to have a baby shower for Amy (sister and friend) so she invites everyone to her mansion to have a good time.

Well....things go terribly wrong and there is blood, a lot of blood.


So, like I said, I liked the book. It helped me during this quarantine and easing my mind into being a stay-at-home-mom and homeschooler.

June Moody is a thirty-something college professor when she is invited to go to the San Juan Islands for a girls weekend with her closest college friends. At first, she not interested. Sure, she likes her friend Em and enjoys keeping up with Kimiko. But she really doesn't want to see Sadie McTavish who was her rival in all things in college and who seems to have a much more successful life than her own. She even married Ethan who had proposed to June first.

But when June's boyfriend dumps her for another woman via a text message, June decides to go to the reunion. She walks into a situation filled with tension and resentment. Amy, their fifth friend and Sadie's cousin, is pregnant. She has always had mental issues and Sadie has taken care of her and controlled her life.

Sadie is a master manipulator who wants to control everyone around her - her husband, her daugher, her cousin, even the gardener. June can see that but is still sort of envious of the life Sadie has created in her lush estate because she happened to write a book that had success similar to the Harry Potter books. June's own single novel is long out of print.

A long evening of drinking ends with memory loss for all of the girls and with Sadie having gone missing. Each of the girls has a reason to be resentful of Sadie as do Ethan and his daughter Dakota. All of them fear that their issues with Sadie will make them wonderful suspects for the police and decide to cover up what little they remember of the past evening.

But suspicions grow among the girls about each other and June spends a lot of time and imagination coming up with various scenarios about the lost time and about what happened to Sadie.

This was a tensely written locked room mystery filled with all sorts of twists and turns. Fans of that sort of thriller will enjoy this one. ( )
