A Good Girl's Guide to Murder
A Good Girl's Guide to Murder | Holly Jackson
The case is closed. Five years ago, schoolgirl Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh. The police know he did it. Everyone in town knows he did it. Almost everyone. Having grown up in the small town that was consumed by the crime, Pippa Fitz-Adeleke chooses the case as the topic for her final project. But when Pip starts uncovering secrets that someone in town desperately wants to stay hidden, what starts out as a project begins to become Pip's dangerous reality . . . Perfect for fans of One of Us Is Lying, We Were Liars, Gone Girl and The Hazel Wood.

Really enjoyed this one, kept me guessing with so many suspects, twists and turns. Looking forward to reading the next book.

Yet another example that mysteries just don‘t excite me. This book dragged on for ages. The font used in Pip‘s notes was way too small (and I‘ve got really good eyes). You also have to suspend your disbelief A LOT while reading this.

“He smiled, put his hands on the back of her neck, fingers in her hair, and leaned in to press his forehead against hers. He‘d told her before that he did it to take away half her sadness, half her headache, half her nerves before her Columbia interview. Because half less of a bad thing meant there was room for half good.” - Holly Jackson

I‘ve read and watch quite a few murder mysteries in my day and this was extremely enjoyable YA one. I really enjoyed the two main charters Pip and Ravi. They had a cute relationship which added to the plot. This book also kept me guessing who the murderer was, which always makes for a great murder mystery. I also liked how it ended and the underline messages that they included in the ending speech. Great book for adults and teenagers alike.

My husband got this book for me after I got obsessed with Big Little Lies. I am new in the mystery/thriller reading world. I am not a big fan of the genre for movies or tv shows but want to give it a try for books. I‘m starting it tonight, but probably will change it to be my during the day reading.

What a ride! An absolute roller coaster of a book, stuffed with secrets and riddles, and a mystery that‘s as tangled as any I‘ve come across. Pip (MC) is likeable and appealing, and it is easy to see why she becomes compulsively wrapped up in this story. On to book 2!

Current Kindle read…I wasn‘t sure I loved the framework at first, but it‘s growing on me. It certainly allows for a lot of development. Just starting to get creepy…

Loved it. 100% recommend. I can't say much without ruining the plot, but it really did catch me of guard. Every time something went down, my whole thought on what had happened completely changed. It keep me reaching out for answers, and I finally got them. It's interesting that she left so many loose ends. I can't wait to read the next book, maybe some of those loose ends will be tied up.

I really enjoyed this one. So many twists and turns. And it had a murder board. Made me miss Trial & Error. I really liked how she jumped back and forth between the research and third person. It was different. Can‘t wait to finally get my hands on the sequel.

Such a fun read! It reminded me so much of the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys mysteries I used to read as a kid but definitely updated for this century. Technically middle grade but meaty enough for us adults. I will likely read the rest of the book in the series as well.

What a page turner! I haven‘t read a book this fast in ages! I was engrossed in Pippa‘s murder-suicide investigation from the jump and definitely fell for some red herrings — maybe they‘ll resurface in the sequels? (What could the sequels possibly be about?!) I really liked the mixed research report/narrative format too.

In S. King‘s “Misery”, he spoke of a phenomenon called the “gotta”, where you cannot put a book down because “I gotta know.” This book was full of the “gotta” gene. It had all the traits, too: a thriller, fast-paced, & short chapters.
But things got out of control for me & it went beyond the realm of possibility. What brought it down for me is the way that it concluded. Too much happened in 5% of the book & there were too many speeches.
⭐️⭐️⭐️

Murder mystery set in a small town. Fast paced, thrilling, before you start to suspect someone the MC already do it in elaborate way. So you should keep on reading.An entertaining and interesting read. I am not a fan of YA mysteries but this was exceptionally good. From long time I wanted to read #murdermysteryseries I can‘t wait to read the next book in the #series 4.5🌟

Finally listened to this YA mystery and I really enjoyed it. A high school student‘s senior project unravels a town mystery. This was a very well constructed mystery regardless of being YA. There was a touch of teen angst which prevents me from making this a perfect read for me, but very entertaining and I look forward to the next book in the series. 4⭐️
