The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel - Book Review




"The Roanoke Girls" by Amy Engel is one dark, disturbing, and twisty tale and it's kind of a page turner! We follow main character Lane Roanoke, and as her story moves from past to present we see how she came to live with her grandparents on the Roanoke plantation after her mother committed suicide, and we see some of the darker and more sinister sides of this shared family secret in a small town. This book has a 3.7 Goodreads rating and I think that's fair, I gave it 3 stars. I did enjoy parts of this book, but honestly it wasn't that much of a thriller for me. "Roanoke Girls" to me was an incredibly steamy read, but besides even those scenes this book made me incredibly uncomfortable due to the secret and twist in the book that I think readers will figure out pretty early in. Have you read "Roanoke Girls"? Comment down below and let me know what you thought of the book!



Many thanks to the author and publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
