This started a bit slow. It took a while to really peek my interest, but once it did, I was hooked! An ending I never expected!

Fast paced and a good mystery! This book was a lot of fun and a very quick read. The author struck a good balance too between developing the teen girl and following the mystery.

This was fantastic! Pip is the perfect narrator. Kept me on my toes and constantly guessing!! I only predicted half the ending, but honestly I thought it could have been anyone! Definitely finishing the series. 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was great! Although a YA read, I really enjoyed the plot and mystery of it. Reminded me slightly of Nancy Drew books I used to read as a child. If you love #mystery books, you‘ll like this one!

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.

Only 45 pages in, and this is already 1,000 times better than my last read. Let‘s gooooooo!! Also, ignore the target sticker…it was very resistant to being removed. I need to get after it with the blow dryer.

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⭐️

Hustled through this as fast as I could at the prodding of my impatient teen daughter, who *needed* me to read it so she‘d have someone to talk about it with. I don‘t tend to gravitate to mysteries, but I loved this one. #motherdaughterbookclub

They were reading this for the A Beautiful Mess Book Club, and it was $7 on Amazon so I decided to give this YA murder mystery a try.
I‘m so glad I did. The main character, Pip, decides to re-examine a friend‘s murder-suicide for a high school senior project. It was a vg mystery with a very likable unlikely sleuth. Will continue series.

Read if you like coming-of-age, cold case, or young romance stories with Hermione-type characters.

Finished this in about 36 hours…with pleeeeeenty of time before my book club meets at the end of the month! I enjoyed the formatting with Pip‘s research notes and files interspersed in the narrative. 3.5 ⭐️

Also, I just love it when libraries tell you how much you saved by using their services! 💰

JackOBotts @SassyPants617 - I‘m hooked, as well. BUT I‘m making myself wait until after my book club meets before diving into the others. I know I‘ll somehow mix up plots! 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️😆 4mo

This just didn't really work for me.

Parts were repetitive and dragged.

The U.S. edition was changed to be set in the U.S. instead of England but it was still so very obviously British. It would have been better if the setting wasn't changed.

The dog died.

I hated the solution to the mystery/who the murderer was. It left me feeling rather depressed.

This month I hope to:
📕 Finish the tagged book
☠️ Read Skeleton Crew for a readalong on IG
☀️ Read Black Sun with my book club
📚 Read either Gordath Wood, Falling Angels, or Things Fall Apart for the Monthly Key Word GXO challenge- I have to read a book with Woods or Fall in the title. I still haven‘t decided which of these I‘ll read so they all got in the picture. I didn‘t mean to get all their hopes up. Lol. Any recommendations?

Well I inhaled this one ridiculously fast! This is a solid binge read…which exactly what I did. Yes the end is tied up with a nice bow but there are two more books in this series which I‘m going to pick up tomorrow. I like Pippa and Ravi and I‘m willing to dive into another book with them. #readingchallenge2022

This book is your average murder mystery filled with twists, thrilling scares, and a love story that is sure to warm your heart. The ending was happy, bubbly and cheerful. Which just didn‘t sit right with me. I usually like my mystery‘s to end off in a mysterious, dark and haunting way, this one didn‘t. A little birdie told me that the sequel was worse—so I‘m not going to read it.

tessabordalejo I also despised the ending of this book with a passion. (edited) 3mo

Bought this for my daughter and she came FLYING down the stairs saying “Mom, you HAVE to read this!” (Which is a victory in itself)

Read this. It will NOT disappoint you. You find yourself fully immersed, wanting more and trying to out the pieces together yourself. Just when you think you know, another layer is underneath. Two thumbs up on this YA.

12/52: A Good Girl‘s Guide to Murder

I LOVED this book- there was not a dull moment the whole story. Pip is a badass for solving a murder while only being 17. Definitely would recommend this one.

If you‘re in the mood for something pretty light, entertaining, and mysterious—this is your book. I especially recommend the audiobook, the cast made it that much more engaging.

I don‘t remember who initially told me about this one, but it was a pleasant surprise. While there were some cringe-worthy “what are you thinking?!?” moments, it was a solid story that I enjoyed, and there were a couple twists I didn‘t see coming.
