Quincy Carpenter is doing fine, thankyouverymuch, Everything is not always as it seems...
Ten years ago, Quincy and her dearest college friends loaded up for a weekend getaway at Pine Cottage, a picturesque cabin the woods. Where everyone died. Except Quincy. She became a Final Girl. The only survivor.
Quincy now lives in New York City with her well-to-do boyfriend, and is a full-time Blogger. Cupcake, anyone? She is doing her best to move on, to not be a media-darling, and to not let what happened to her define her future. She has plans, she has goals.
That is, until the news of the death of a fellow "Final Girl", simultaneously turns Quincy's world upside down, and takes her straight back into the depths of her nightmare. ...Is that a knocking at the front door? ....
I gave this I gave Final Girls ★★★★☆ on Goodreads. Alternating between snippets of that night in the cabin (to the best of Quincy's failed recollection), and present day, continually building and putting the gruesome puzzle together piece by piece, made for an engrossing and quick read! So many Red Herrings, which one will you be chasing?
>>And, the best part: No one is prefacing this novel as "for fans of Gone Girl!" Finally!
