Review: The Dolls by Kiki Sullivan

Goodreads Summary:

Eveny Cheval just moved back to Louisiana after spending her childhood in New York with her aunt Bea. Eveny hasn’t seen her hometown since her mother’s suicide fourteen years ago, and her memories couldn’t have prepared her for what she encounters. Because pristine, perfectly manicured Carrefour has a dark side full of intrigue, betrayal, and lies—and Eveny quickly finds herself at the center of it all.

Enter Peregrine Marceau, Chloe St. Pierre, and their group of rich, sexy friends known as the Dolls. From sipping champagne at lunch to hooking up with the hottest boys, Peregrine and Chloe have everything—including an explanation for what’s going on in Carrefour. And Eveny doesn’t trust them one bit.

But after murder strikes and Eveny discovers that everything she believes about herself, her family, and her life is a lie, she must turn to the Dolls for answers. Something’s wrong in paradise, and it’s up to Eveny, Chloe, and Peregrine to save Carrefour and make it right.

Publication Date: September 2, 2014

This is definitely a guilty pleasure book. If you’re looking for a book that allows you to shut off your brain and just go with it, then I highly recommend The Dolls. Most of the characters are shallow and the main character has a few too stupid to live moments, but I enjoyed the book well enough. There’s a lot of materialism in the book and I think another reviewer who called the novel Mean Girls with magic was right on. The romance felt forced at first, but ended up growing on me more as the story progressed. I’d say if you’re in the mood for a candy-like read for YAs, then pick up The Dolls.

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of the novel for review!
