Fiction. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:

A hot, twisty summer debut thriller about a Caribbean bachelorette party that takes a sinister turn. It's Lord of the Flies meets And Then There Were None...but with Instagram and too much prosecco.

The party of a lifetime is nothing like what they expected...

Annabel, Esther, Tanya, and Chloe are best friends??or were, as children. Despite drifting apart in adulthood, shared secrets have kept them bonded for better or worse, even as their childhood dreams haven't quite turned out as they'd hoped. Then one day they receive a wholly unexpected??but not entirely unwelcome??invitation from another old friend. Poppy Greer has invited them all to her extravagant bachelorette party: a first-class plane ticket to three days of white sand, cocktails, and relaxation on a luxe private island in the Bahamas.

None of them has spoken to Poppy in years. But Poppy's Instagram pics shows that the girl they used to consider the weakest link in their group has definitely made good??and made money. Curiosity gets the better of them. Besides, who can turn down a posh all-expenses-paid vacation on a Caribbean island?

The first-class flight and the island's accommodations are just as opulent as expected...even if the scenic island proves more remote than they'd anticipated. Quite remote, in fact, with no cell service, and no other guests. The women quickly discover they've underestimated Poppy, and each other. As their darkest secrets are revealed, the tropical adventure morphs into a terrifying nightmare.

Endlessly twisty, sharply observant, and deliciously catty, She Started It is sure to shock readers until the ve… (més)

What a page turned. I figured out one of the twists about halfway through. ( )

I consider myself someone who heavily enjoys thrillers-phycological thrillers to be exact. I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Sian Gilbert. I like multiple viewpoints, it keeps the book exciting for me, especially when there is a mystery setting about it. I watch a lot of lifetime movie network with my husband on Sundays and we always enjoy trying the figure out the plot and the killer before the end of the movie (we usually figure it out pretty quickly but no one watches LMN for the depth, it's for the storyline ( )

Holy crap!! If this is the Author's debut novel, readers are in for great things to come.

Prepare yourself if you're going to read this, you'll need supplies to keep you going and no need to be anywhere until you finally turn the last page.

3.5 just because I had to find out how it ended. I think a few more chapters at the beginning helping me get to know each woman would have helped but it jumped into the action and I wasn’t vested in the characters. ( )

This has a lot of promising elements, but I don't think the execution was here. The women all sound the same - I couldn't tell one voice apart from the other four. The stakes seem wildly mismatched until the very end, and then the whole premise shifts in a very shark-jumping way.
I enjoyed the "Glass Onion" set up of people coming to an island with someone they haven't seen in years and trying to feel each other out. I logged the first half where secrets were slowly divulged, and tension built. There were some very obvious plot points, like the bride being the only one left and the boater having the brides mixed up, or the blood with no body clearly means no death occurred. Things like that feel poorly set up here.
It was still a fast read with a fun setting, so grab it if you need a quick thriller. ( )
