REVIEW: The Collective

This book is one of those cautionary tales of be careful what you wish for – on steroids. They say there is nothing worse than a woman scorned, I would argue that a woman who’s lost a child is infinitely worse after reading this book. Camille’s daughter was raped and killed by a rich young man who claimed they had consensual sex and then someone else attacked her. His privileged status helped spin the PR around the story so that he got off with no punishment at all and Camille is enraged. When she reaches her rock bottom she publicly embarrasses herself trying to bring light to what a monster this young man is. It should be a wake up call, but then she’s invited to join a mysterious group of other women who have suffered the same loss. This group is not a support group focused on grief and forgiveness but vigilante justice and revenge.

Whooo was this a ride of a novel. I read it in one afternoon. I was so compelled by Camille’s quick immersion and equally quick realization that she might be in over her head. I do not want to go into details that could spoil the experience for you but this is a fun read if you like revenge stories. It goes from 0 to 60 real quick. For most of the story, you are on a straight roller coaster ride where you can see where the track is headed and then in the last third of the story we get a few great twists and the end is, well not what I expected but I loved it. I would actually enjoy another story in this group, there is so much potential here. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was the first @bookofthemonth that I read the month it was released in a long time. What’s the last book you bumped up on your TBR as soon as you received it?
