About Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes:

A missing girl in the news reminds Julia Carroll of herself: nineteen, beautiful, blonde hair, blue eyes.
Julia begins to dig deeper and plans an article for her college paper. She becomes gradually more obsessed with the case, never imagining how close she herself is to danger.

 

My Thoughts:


This is my first experience reading Ms. Slaughter's work and I am hooked. I was immediately drawn into the story as it is every parent's worse fear that their child will go missing. Julia is polarizing: either you will like her or you won't because that is just the type of character she is--and that is perfectly fine with me.

What I liked about this novella is it did exactly what I hoped it would do: it introduced me to Ms. Slaughter's writing as well as into the longer story, Pretty Girls so much so that I want to continue reading on with it. To me, that is the hallmark of a well done novella.
