A supernatural thriller in the vein of A Head Full of Ghosts about two young girls, a scary story that becomes far too real, and the tragic--and terrifying--consequences that follow one of them into adulthood. Red Lady, Red Lady, show us your face... In 1991, Heather Cole and her friends were members of the Dead Girls Club. Obsessed with the macabre, the girls exchanged stories about serial killers and imaginary monsters, like the Red Lady, the spirit of a vengeful witch killed centuries before. Heather knew the stories were just that, until her best friend Becca began insisting the Red Lady was real--and she could prove it. That belief got Becca killed. It's been nearly thirty years, but Heather has never told anyone what really happened that night--that Becca was right and the Red Lady was real. She's done her best to put that fateful summer, Becca, and the Red Lady, behind her. Until a familiar necklace arrives in the mail, a necklace Heather hasn't seen since the night Becca died. The night Heather killed her. Now, someone else knows what she did...and they're determined to make Heather pay.… (lisätietoja)

Creepy, creepy and more creepy. When you were 12 years old did you and your friends huddle under a blanket at a sleepover and tell scary ghost stories... serial killer stories, and "dead girl" stories.? Did you and your friends listen breathlessly believing you heard footsteps from something that wasn't there yet and you hoped would never arrive...but on the other hand, couldn't wait to see? I did....there was 8 of us...and we couldn't get enough. So I could so see myself and my friends maybe forming a club like Heather and her friends and scaring the s**t out of each other. Of course we did that without the club title. Unfortunately for these girls "something" did answer their summons. "Something" took Becca and now no one believes Heather or her friends. Becca and Heather were solid friends with very different backgrounds. Heather came from a stable home...while Becca was being abuse in a broken home. I empathized with both girls. Becca was troubled and Heather had a genuine desire to save her friend. Now we meet "Adult Heather" who is a child psychologist. She has a successful career, a stable marriage, a well-ordered life but carries a disturbing childhood secret. Everything in her life runs smoothly until some very odd events occur that threatens her carefully-constructed façade. Somebody mails Dr. Heather Cole one tarnished half of a heart-shaped "best friends" necklace...she panics since the last time she saw this particular bit of jewelry, she was 12 years old and it was hanging around the neck of her dead BFF, Becca Thomas. What's true? Is there something Heather isn't remembering about that night in 1991? Readers will miss sleeping time, perhaps dinner time, who needs to eat anyway when you just have to find out how this ends? You may be very surprised. ( )

Received via NetGalley for review.

A wonderful examination of guilt, uncertainty, mental illness, and friendship. Heather and Becca are and always will be best friends, but when Becca starts to seem obsessed with the story of the Red Lady and show signs of abuse, Heather doesn't know what to feel or how to act. Eventually, she decides that their friendship is the most important thing, and does what she can to help Becca.

Years later, as an adult, someone begins to send Heather reminders of the incident, sending Heather into a spiral of paranoia and anxiety. Watching her sabotage herself trying to figure out who knows her secret is incredibly well-written, engaging, and hard to read. At times, it was hard to tell if there were was anything supernatural going on, or we were just witnessing Heather's descent into madness (which is a trope I always love). ( )

I’m a big fan of horror and the supernatural, and I really enjoyed the first half of this book. The stories and obsession about The Red Lady reminded me of Slenderman and “The Craft”. The second half though was a bit of a letdown and prevented a higher rating. It turned into a whodunit thriller, complete with my oh-so-favorite ending where the villain reveals their plan during a time of crisis. The villain is hinted at in the beginning very stealthily, so when they were revealed I personally wasn’t too surprised, but I suppose other readers would be. The character’s tendency to keep secrets and not talk to each other bugged me. I did enjoy the little movie trivia game Heather played with her husband, as that is something I would do with my husband. ( )

My thoughts while reading this book. “Eh.” “Meh.” “Oh.” “Hmm.” “Ooh, where‘s she going with this?” “Okay, now it‘s getting creepy.” “WTF is going on here?” “Is it or isn‘t it?” “Must. Know. Now.” “Whah, whah.” There was a stretch where I was on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, so I‘d probably give this author another try. A bit of a “Sun Down Motel” vibe, but you have to stick it out a bit to get there, and the ending underwhelmed me. ( )

The Dead Girls Club by Damien Angelica Walters

Fiction, supernatural thriller, NetGalley, digital book, ARC (5/19/19)

I received this digital arc from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

I think this book would be best catalogued with YA novels as it lacked the grit of an adult thriller. This is not for the person who enjoys deep psychological thrillers.

The story alternates from past to present but mostly focuses on Heather Cole and her paranoid fixation regarding events of the past. It is difficult to take the journey with the protagonist as it feels like she is going down the rabbit hole. Since it didn’t feel warranted I couldn’t follow her and thus watched from above in disbelief shaking my head.

Ironically, Heather Cole is a child psychologist who slowly unravels when she is taunted with reminders of her own unresolved childhood trauma. Unfortunately, she becomes angry and defensive with her husband Ryan who becomes worried about her suspicious behavior. Heather begins to revisit her childhood trauma recalling the events of The Dead Girls Club and their fascination with the gruesome crimes and The Red Lady.

The story felt anticlimactic and fell short of a thriller.
