Starting this one!
Really enjoyed this one, kept me guessing with so many suspects, twists and turns. Looking forward to reading the next book.
“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.
4.5 ⭐️ Wow- once things got going, I could not put this down. You will have to suspend disbelief to enjoy this, but it‘s a gripping tale and I think it‘s worth it.

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!
Here you go, @julieclair , my 5 books for you to choose from for #Scarathlon2022 and #trappedonanisland. I hope you enjoy the ones you choose. 1. A Good Girl‘s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson; 2. Witchy Wednesday by Denise Jaden; 3. The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Spear; 4. Small Spaces by Katherine Arden; and 5. Skeptic in Salem by Fiona Grace.
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.
Really fast paced, a fun, breezy, read that will totally take you out your reading slump if you have one. The suspense, the characters, the development of the plot and twists were really well balanced and just all over it's just a really good story you can devour in a day. 8/10
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⭐️
