    If you’re avoiding spoilers, you may want to skip this review. If you’re into negative reviews, buckle up babe and let’s talk. Oh, and if you’re AJ Rivers, I’m especially open to a discussion with you. Normally, AJ’s mysteries are unique and interesting. They aren’t overtly predictable, and while clues are left, it’s not too easy to pick out. This time around, you don’t care about the mystery. You can’t really pick up the clues because AJ isn’t writing it, she’s wasting our time with detours abo If you’re avoiding spoilers, you may want to skip this review. If you’re into negative reviews, buckle up babe and let’s talk. Oh, and if you’re AJ Rivers, I’m especially open to a discussion with you. Normally, AJ’s mysteries are unique and interesting. They aren’t overtly predictable, and while clues are left, it’s not too easy to pick out. This time around, you don’t care about the mystery. You can’t really pick up the clues because AJ isn’t writing it, she’s wasting our time with detours about Emma’s personal life. When we do get to the mystery, Emma is laughing about how smart she is, the killers are commenting about how smart and loved she is. It’s enough to root for them and hope they kill her. The first thing I want to go over is a lack of research. I don’t know everything about law enforcement or FBI, but how come Emma, who isn’t really the working agent she was in the beginning of this series, can walk into even a police station with her cousin and get what she wants? Why do officers have the clearance to say “you’re a consultant now because I, just a regular officer, said so” and they are willing to turn over all their information without so much as an identity check. She then uses that to get her PI cousin, who is essentially just a civilian, the same access. There has to be procedures and red tape and the need to do her actual job that would prevent her from going to some small town and questioning people and getting them to comply with just a withering stare. People treat her like a celebrity, but how many FBI agents do you know? Yet this niche fame she has is fine for her, but not other women, leading me to my next point. Second, Emma has become such an unlikeable character and it’s because of AJ Rivers. We are supposed to believe that Emma is a strong, confident, independent woman, but she spends the majority of this book putting down other women for their choices based on the fact that they are pretty and are internet celebrities. There’s an eating disorder jab and a dig at Kim Kardashian for the one good thing she does, which is using her voice and her money to fight for prison reform and helping the cases of the wrongfully convicted. There’s a misplaced dig at Marilyn Monroe and the reduction of her mental illness and substance abuse to just “oh she was famous.” Emma didn’t always behave like this, which leads me to infer that what we are reading is AJ’s point of view. Misogyny as a character device is not interesting. You cannot write a strong female character that puts down other women. Emma is a conventionally attractive and well-off woman, she has financial security and two houses and a steady job (that never requires her to work). She is in no way disabled, she wears makeup (even though AJ makes sure to let you know she doesn’t need it or wear it often), she bakes and likes movies. She is privileged and an average woman and the “oh well she’s just famous because she’s pretty” misogyny is tiring. Grow up, AJ. I have a few notes on instances of misogyny, and one I would like to bring up is that this writing makes me feel as though AJ/Emma has some jealousy concerning internet famous women. Well fun fact, a woman can be many things, you can be an author and post on Instagram so if that’s what it is, have at it. Xavier and Lilith are the most interesting parts of the book and they don’t get enough time. They’re proof that AJ can write something compelling and interesting, but she moves on to focus on more of Emma’s bullshit. An interaction with Xavier is punctuated by Emma thinking she’s some special unique person, but she’s just like everyone else and the real interest here is Xavier. I do want to bring up Lydia, a pretty blonde with an interest in solving crimes and fighting for justice... like Emma. Emma is outraged by her existence, which is incredibly confusing. Earlier Emma makes a point about not being able to rest unless she’s fighting for justice, and her cousin isn’t law enforcement, but does the same thing as Lydia. Emma isn’t even active FBI until much later in the book, so essentially, she’s Lydia with better resources, and despite being in a relationship, is outraged that Lydia was ever close to Greg. Jealous, much? Emma cannot handle being faced with another woman who is just like her because she thinks she’s so unique. The villain, Dragon, is another uninteresting elitist white guy. We know these entitled men exist, most of us have met many of them. Like Emma, it’s plain, it’s vanilla, it’s over done and I don’t care about it. I don’t empathize with them. They don’t make compelling villains anymore when our government is being run by them. You should care about a well written villain, Dragon seems like another “The League” jackass. Interactions and actions are past tense. We have to sit there countless conversations with Sam about what she apparently did and who she spoke to. The reader is given the brief rundown of what happened, but in detail we get to hear about their eating habits, movie night preferences, breakfast routine, how he slaps her ass and kisses her and makes her feel better. There’s no action, just recaps. Emma solves the mystery and tells us how she did it, but it wasn’t written, we didn’t see her go through those steps and come to those conclusion. Conversations with Dean about his perspective are mentioned and skipped. AJ continues to do so much telling and lecturing, and in short, choppy sentences. Once again I ask myself: do I read the next Emma Griffin, or am I finally getting off this train? I like train wrecks, I like talking shit, but I’m so thoroughly disappointed. I really liked AJ’s writing and was genuinely entertained by these books. Now, I am frustrated and annoyed, the writing has gone to shit, and I hate Emma. I spend more time making comments about why I’m displeased with the book than I do reading. Maybe I’ll read another AJ Rivers novel someday, if she decides to stop writing a book every 3 weeks and gets a better editor and unpacks her need to put down other women constantly. All in all, I’m so glad I never spent a cent on these books. I had planned to buy hard copies of them all because I enjoyed them and having been reading on Kindle Unlimited, but fortunately I never did. In my last review, I was worried Emma was going to jump the shark. It seems we’re there. I really think I’m going to pass on the next installment but if I don’t, I’ll see you all in the review section. EDIT: I re-read my review of Dangerous Waters, and in that review, I make a comment about how we are on the same path as season 1. There's some personal mystery for Emma emerging that will not be revealed in the next book, but will be dragged out over a 7-book series. Someone will be obsessing over Emma, she'll use luck and instinct to solve cases along the way and she'll uncover something huge, dark, and sinister (like a security society) that no one else thought of. Dragon is obsessed with Emma (notably for her beauty, which again, AJ makes clear that it is fine and wonderful for Emma to be beautiful, but other beautiful women are self-obsessed bimbos) and is part of some huge secret thing (Order of Prometheus) that Emma will be uncovering while trying to figure out what happened to Greg and how Dragon (supposedly something Emma dealt with long ago) is back. QUICK did you see that? That was a shark back there, we just jumped over it.

Ok, now that that is out of the way…..

Rivers: Please never never NEVER take Sam away from me…. errr I mean never take Sam away from Emma. Ok, now that that is out of the way….. Emma Griffin continues to be the badass special agent we know her to be, fighting the good fight, using her gut instincts to bring together some of the most challenging cases. We continue to see Emma stretch and grow as time heals more and more of her childhood wounds. Centering an entire series around one character can be tricky but Rivers does a phenomenal job with Emma, so much so that we can’t help but be personally invested in her success. The Girl and the Secret Society brings Emma and her PI cousin Dean back together. When Dean unexpectedly comes to Sherwood for a visit it doesn’t take long for Emma to jump head first into the missing persons case he’s working on. As with most mysteries Emma gets involved with, dead bodies and dead ends start to pile up. No worries… it’s just a matter of time before the dynamic duo, with the help of Sam and a local Detective, start to put the pieces of this crazy puzzle together. This story was full of so many interesting characters. I was especially taken with Xavier so be sure to take your time when he pops up. And don’t forget… Rivers is the master of psychological thrillers so keep your mind wide open. I can just feel something insane is coming our way.

    3.5 stars The Girl and the Secret Society is book nine of the Emma Griffin FBI Mysteries. This one starts off several months after the last one ended up and we see Emma working more as a consultant still but she does seem to have her FBI privileges back, I find it all a bit confusing honestly when it comes to her job.

This one starts off several months after the last one ended up and we see Emma working more as a consultant still but she does seem to have her FBI privileges back, I find it all a bit confusing honestly when it comes to her job. I agree with Dean that she should just become a PI like him so that she can have more freedom, but I also get how she doesn't want to lose all the access she has with the FBI and how helpful all of that has been when dealing with the stalkers she always manages to get. Her access to the FBI also lets her join in on cases in other areas fairly easily like we see her do in this book. Emma and her cousin Dean end up going on the search for two different missing people who seem to possibly be involved or have discovered the same type of group/cult. It's a little questionable until the end what it was. Overall I enjoyed this book. It was a little judgy at times when it came to the missing woman and how she was good-looking and became famous. Emma didn't really seem to care for that and it does show a more old-school type of thinking when it comes to dealing with social media and influencers and how people don't care for them. This did make it so Emma took a while longer to not only want to investigate Lakyn missing, but also made it so she didn't take her as seriously at first as Lakyn was changing her image and wanting to help other people with the influence she had. Having said all that I did end up start putting things together before Emma did when it came to both Emma's and Dean's cases connecting and how they were involved together. I think this also had something to do with Emma started to get more focused on her relationship and less on the cases she was working on in a way. It was just a little bit more of a distraction than it had been before I noticed. I'm interested to see what happens next and what Emma chooses and who exactly her new stalker is.

    The Girl and the Secret Society continues the fantastic story of Emma Griffin, FBI. It is very helpful to read all of the books in the series because each new novel has references to characters and events in past works. Definitely worth the time. While it looks like Emma is finally coming to terms with her life and job and finding a new balance, her cousin, Dean, PI, arrives for a visit while working on a missing person's case. It doesn't take long before Emma becomes involved helping Dean. Things The Girl and the Secret Society continues the fantastic story of Emma Griffin, FBI.

It doesn't take long before Emma becomes involved helping Dean. Things are never simple, however, and the novel is comprised of three sections: Emma and Dean's missing person, Lillith and Dragon. The three sections do not seem to be connected in any way but Emma and Dean's investigation proves differently. The twists and turns are confusing and fun to follow to the conclusion of this entertaining novel. As usual, not everything is resolved and readers must wait impatiently for the next installment in this series. Don't miss any of these books.

Probably the best review synopsis I can give is that I am thrilled that there is an extensive list of books already written ready for me to read. When I find a new author I love, I dislike discovering there is only one or two more books to read. I loved finding there were currently fifteen.

I'm a sucker for a strong female character and Emma is all that and more. Each book is better than the next and this one was no different. I thought I knew where this was going, but I was wrong on so many counts. Every time I think I understand, something else gets thrown in to the mix. I look forward to reading the next book and definitely recommend this series. Couldn't put it down This was a crazy ride from start to finish.

    Oh. My. Goodness! What an incredible plot. The back story really sucks you in while you are trying to figure out what is going on in front of you. This woman has honed instincts and she never missed a clue, a hair, a fiber, or a video. It's hard to put down once you start reading. Exactly how far does this secret society extend? And when will Dragon appear back in her life. What role has he played in all her cases? Who is Dragon? I can't wait for the next book. Oh. My. Goodness! What an incredible plot.

    Tried too hard! I have read most of the Emma Griffin mysteries. This one was just a !little on the preposterous side. It was like the author took a bunch of unrelated things and worked really hard to relate them. It was like be was showing off taking things from years ago and ma!ing them relevant now. Very complicated story. But I like Emma so waded through. Not my favorite book in series.

    Another Page Turner I am loving each and every book in this series. I like the style A.J. Rivers uses in writing her books. It has been fun getting to know the characters strengths and vulnerabilities. There are threads that connect each book to the previous ones, but in ways that are interesting, never boring. Each book has been a page turner that keeps you in suspense to the end.

    Another thrilling ending I have read every book in this series and I am always left anxious for the next book. A. J. Rivers always ends with a mind bender!

Look forward to the next book in the series!

    Emma Griffin is terrific! I enjoyed this book immensely! The entire series is creative, intriguing and just plain interesting. The characters are well crafted and the story lines keep you guessing til the end - which you don’t want to come because then you have to wait til the next book comes out to get your “fix”! Well done, A J Rivers!

    I love how AJ writes these mysterious stories and ties them all together. You finish one book but there’s always a little something to entice you for the next. Great characters with a unique way for the story. Emma is an amazing character. Love this series. I received this as an ARC and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    More like it Book nine was was the Emma Griffin book we all come to expect. Book 8 set up book nine and it was fast paced and complex. As usual AJ rivers weaved an intricate design keeping you guessing. Not sure if I have gotten so good at reading her or she made one part of the plot simple, but ninety percent was shocking ten percent I guessed corectly.

    Absolutely amazing!!! I've read every book in this series so far and I still can't get enough. Each book has been amazing and the storyline is just so freaking awesome. I love how each book keeps you on the edge and you can't put it down until you find out what happens next. I'm so looking forward to the next book. Absolutely amazing!!!

    Excellent Read A.J. Rivers’ books just keep getting better and better! Her last two books had more of an insight into Emma’s emotional motivation, which made for such a lovely read. Really enjoy how she weaves past and present and tells them simultaneously. Well written! Hopefully with lots more to come.

    Finished reading my ARC copy and can't say enough good things about this story. After a wonderful vacation Emma gets involved in an interesting case with her cousin Dean. Lots of twists. Looking forward to her next adventure. Finished reading my ARC copy and can't say enough good things about this story.

    Suspense and intrigue The author has a unique way of developing the story line and the characters. I was pulled into the mystery and surprised by the ending and the hint of the next book.
