My Review

Having read Liars by Frances Vick I was looking forward to reading Two Little Girls. While it took me a little time to get into to and to understand where the story was going, once I did, I couldn't put it down. Frances Vick is an author who's style of writing I enjoy reading. 
Kirsty is still confused about what happened to her childhood friend. She has questions about whether the man convicted is actually responsible for the crime. She takes it upon herself to try and discover what really happened. She feels like people are keeping secrets and wants to know what they are. 
I really liked the parts featuring the psychic and her mother. I felt it gave a little something extra to the story. I was not at all keen on Kirtsy's sister, I found her needy and annoying! 
There is a little bit of language that I personally feel could have been left out, but I do understand what the author was trying to do by including it. 
Two Little Girls is a gripping read and Frances Vick has delivered a great book. I would recommend Two Little Girls if you like a mystery with an edge to it. 

Thank you to Noelle from Bookouture for a digital copy of this book via NetGalley to read as part of blog tour.
