Synopsis

Chevy Stevens is back with her most powerful, emotional thriller yet— a story of survival…and revenge.

Life has never been easy for the three Campbell sisters.  Jess, Courtney, and Dani live on a remote ranch in Western Canada where they work hard and try to stay out of the way of their father’s fists.  One night, a fight gets out of hand and the sisters are forced to go on the run, only to get caught in an even worse nightmare when their truck breaks down in a small town. Events spiral out of control and a chance encounter with the wrong people leaves them in a horrific and desperate situation. They are left with no choice but to change their names and create new lives.

Eighteen years later, they are still trying to forget what happened that summer when one of the sisters goes missing and they are pulled back into their past.

This time there’s nowhere left to run.

As much of a thriller as it is a deep exploration of the bonds among sisters, Those Girls is an unforgettable portrait of desperation, loyalty, and evil.

Inspiration

This story was initially inspired by the phrase “those girls” which I used in That Night. My editor and I agreed it would make a wonderful title. When we started talking about my fifth book, we liked the concept of my writing about sisters. Up until then my books had featured solitary character and I was intrigued by the idea of exploring the intricate bond of family. Like the sisters in my novel, I grew up with an alcoholic father. What if something had happened one night when my father came home drunk? What if my brother or I had done something to protect the other? The ideas flowed from there.
