Arc Book Review | When All the Girls Have Gone

Another page-turning read from Jayne Ann Krentz!

Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 4.33.44 PM

I’ve loved Jayne Ann Krentz’s books for years now. She has her formula down, and it always makes for a fun, thrilling read. When All the Girls Have Gone is no different.

*Warning: this story does deal with serial rapists

The story bounces between several different POV—Charlotte (our heroine), Jocelyn, and a couple of the killers—which threw me a couple of times, but Krentz managed to pull a twist that I didn’t fully see coming. That alone gave this book an extra point.

What I enjoy about Krentz’s writing is the way she writes romances. She doesn’t write an insta-love story, which is relieving. Instead, her characters start out as friends-to-lovers or lust-to-love romances which I think is more realistic, the latter of which was the case for this book.

This book makes for a quick, engaging read, perfect for a rainy day.

My Rating: 4/5 stars

  1. I don’t know the author but now I am curious. I’m so tired of insta love, and the plot seems to have a few surprised in store, which is always good!

  2. Oh, wow. Extremely gritty. Seattle is a great place to set a dark story, try as Twilight and Fifty Shades did to cast it as a romancey locale. There are a lot of dark places and it rains all the time. I think more crime/thriller writers should take advantage of it. (I say this book not having insta-love wins points solely on that.)
