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.
If you take The Craft, The Secret Circle and add a dash of Mean girls you have The Dolls. Going into this book I wasn’t sure what to expect but what I got was a pretty good read that kept my interest and I had a serious love hate relationship with some of the characters.
Eveny Cheval has been living with her Aunt Bea in NY since her mom passed away when she was younger. Having lived away from her family home for so long her Aunt thought it would be a good time for her to return to her family home in Carrefours Louisanna. The Town isn’t what you except and the people are even worse. Something strange is going on and people are turning up dead, Eveny will soon need the help of the two most popular girls Peregrine and Chloe the “Mean Girls” in the school to help her find out what’s going on before it’s to late for all of them.
I honestly loved this book. I HATED Peregrine, like 100% hated her. I think I was supposed to but even if I wasn’t I still did. I really adored Eveny and Chloe. Chloe was like the middle person always getting in front of Peregrine when she got a little nasty or out of control.
The world build wasn’t to bad, I would have liked a little more explanation about Carrefours and the Main De Lumiére but it was easy enough to understand who they were and what they wanted. I loved the story, I found it to be very interesting and at the story unfolded I really got into all the twists and turn of who was good and who was out to get our Main Character. I was totally wrong a few times. Lol.
I gave The Dolls by Kiki Sullivan 4/5 stars, This was a great story with some really awesome characters, some I loved and some I hated. I recommend for anyone that is looking for a mix of Magic and Mean HS Girl. This is really a fun book to read 🙂
