I'm sorry, but I think it's time we broke up.
I loved you when you wrote Still Missing and Never Knowing
I do know. It was That Night. That sucked big time. I'm sorry.
Too much happening in your book with flat characters turns my heart off.
This one. I thought I was going to love.
I think to keep me relating to characters that are in my books I have to at least have some belief in their stories. Be it fantasy, romance or thrillers like this one.
I was actually with you ...more
I have enjoyed all of Chevy Stevens books but this one is probably my favorite.
I have found that lately it's taken quite a while for me to get into the books I'm reading.
Not so with this book. I was HOOKED from the start. It packs such an emotional punch that even when I had to put it down for a few minutes it was all I could think about. I rushed through everything I had to do until I could pick it up again.
I fell in love wit ...more
I literary was having an 'affair' with this novel. Be warned, The reading experience is like climbing over a high brick wall --entering private property -- then realiz ...more
Oh dear......I am sorry to say this novel did not work for me. It certainly begins with a bang when three teenage sisters ban together to save themselves from their drunken abusive father, but their unbelievably asinine decisions thereafter ruined the rest of the story for me. Unfortunately, I never did connect with any of the characters, and even the verbal threats and violent actions by the aggressors came across as flat and unconvincing.
Overall, an ok young adult read with murder, ra...more
I'm not going to rehash the plot as it is complicated and spoilery, but basically these 3 girls go from one bad situation ...more
Those girls had a gritty upbringing, so why are they so naive? There is specific mention of being taught mechanical things by their father, but ...more
“Some things can’t be made right.”
So Hiddles, what did we think of this one?
Oh come on, that’s a bit harsh dontcha think????
That’s right, think about it. Take all the time you need. Oh, you already have a new reaction???
Yes. I can get on board with the eye roll – and yet somehow I COULD. NOT. STOP. READING. THIS.
Alright, here’s the synopsis (Dear plagiarists, please don’t steal these from me. I’m not very good at writ ...more

Well, this was quite the wild ride! Separated into three different parts, Those Girls, is set in the Canadian province of British Columbia and spans eighteen years in the lives of the three Campbell sisters. These girls surely live through hell and at times it was hard to stomach. Chevy Stevens' villains are truly the most despica ...more
This is totally 'unputdownable'.
There has not been one Chevy Stevens book I have had the pleasure of reading that I haven't liked or had a small moan about. This author really knows its reader.
The Campbell sisters, Jess, Courtney and Dani do not have the best of lives. They're Mother was dead.
[The story tells you how she came to die]
And they live with they're Father. He is one horrible man! He treats each girl terrible, he's abusive, cruel, he's cruel to the point of almost death.
He goes off to ...more

Eighteen years later, they have new identities and are still trying to forget what happened to them that summer. But then one of the sisters go ...more
At the beginning I struggled to put it down. There was a lot of suspense created as the events that were unfolding wer ...more
This one started out strong; awesome relatable characters who demonstrate true perseverance and strength in dire circumstances. But then? A complete gearshift into unbelievable, frustrating, and less than credible choices.
by Chevy Stevens
I just..I don't know how to rate this.
TRIGGER WARMING..Rape Depiction..several rape depictions. Pretty graphic stuff.
This is one of the bleakest, most lonely books I have ever read. That does not mean it isn't good. I would give it 3.5 stars. But it was a tough read. Actually that is not doing it justice, it was a PAINFUL read.
I’ll start with the parts that I loved - Chevy Stevens is a fantastic storyteller. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire book and hated having to put it down when life forced me to take a break from this story. Like her other books, this one was gritty, suspenseful and had my heart in my throat during many parts.
What ultimately brought down the rating for me is what I tend to refer to as “characters who are too dumb to be ali ...more
This is the 5th book I've read by this author and it was very much a let-down. I didn't find it suspenseful, there's no mystery, and few thrills here. I read that it's supposed to be a novel ...more
I just finished the book and am blubbering like a baby. Strange, since the story is scary as heck! The ending though, was anything but scary.
Skylar is an amazing girl, even if naive. Her naivety is sweet though in a very endearing way. She has the best intentions. She is still a force to reckon with in this tale.
Boy-oh-boy though, the villains in this one are terrifying! Especially Gavin. He's the kind of scary that keeps you up at night.
Definitely true to Chevy's writing, the st ...more
I really enjoyed reading this book. How is it that I haven't read anything written by Chevy Stevens before now? This is the kind of book that I really enjoy reading and I am amazed that I somehow missed this author. I think I even own one of her earlier books but have never felt compelled to open it but I can tell you that it will not remain unread much longer.
This book really opened with a bang and I was immediately hooked. The story is told ...more

CHEVY STEVENS lives on Vancouver Island with her husband and daughter. When she’s not working on her next book, she’s hiking with her two dogs on her favorite mountain trails and spending time with her family. Chevy's current obsessions are vintage airstreams, Hollywood memoirs all things mid-century modern, and stand-up comedians--not necessarily in that order.
Chevy's debut novel, STILL MISSING, ...more
