"When a storm strikes at Blackbrook Academy, an elite prep school nestled in the woods of Maine, a motley crew of students--including Beth 'Peacock' Picach, Orchid McKee, Vaughn Green, Sam 'Mustard' Maestor, Finn Plum, and Scarlet Mistry--are left stranded on campus with their headmaster. Hours later, her body is found hanging in the conservatory and it's very clear her death was no suicide. With this group of students who are all hiding something, nothing is as it seems, and everyone has a motive for murder"--

If you call a book In the Hall... and the murder seems not to take place in the hall, a reader might wonder and that wondering might lead the reader to discover the killers identity waaaaaaaay earlier than the author intended.

86 pages into this Clue mystery and no one has been murdered yet. Isn‘t that supposed to be the first thing that happens?

BlameJennyJane The premise sure sound fun but they best get on with it! Lol 2w
Bette I'd be curious what you think about it, I bailed when they were all together during the storm. When I realized there was a sequel and it just wasn't moving I gave it up. 2w

This was a delightful start to the series! Of course, the author pretty much had me at the title and A Clue Mystery tag, but then she set it in a boarding school and I was helpless to resist! Can't wait to see what the next book brings! Book 3 of 2020. #audiobook #tbr

Tessreads How fun! I love Clue and boarding school stories, so I will definitely have to check this one out 2w

I liked the idea of this mystery a lot, but it fell off a bit for me midway through. Also, I like series, but hate when they leave too much hanging to the end. I‘m not sure I will continue with the series, but I did love the concept. Also because no one will ever top Clue the movie!!

I love the board game Clue, so I thought this book looked like a fun tribute to it. I expected it to be quirky or madcap or campy but it wasn't. It was kind of dull. It's kind of amusing to read if you're a fan of the game or movie, but otherwise there's not much appeal.

Had a great time at the Baltimore Book Festival today! I met Diana Peterfreund and discovered she‘s written a book based on the Clue game (tagged book). Clue is my favorite board game, so now I‘m psyched to read this book! I also met Pintip Dunn, and got her book Forget Tomorrow. 😊📚 #baltimorebookfestival

TheAromaofBooks I just saw this book on Goodreads this week! It sounds great. 2mo

So... I have a slightly more detailed review on goodreads, but for now: this was disappointing and I think that‘s my own fault because I love Clue so much lol. This is not really a “solve” type mystery and there wasn‘t much investigating. And it‘s part of I believe a trilogy, so overall too many unanswered questions. A quick and pretty enjoyable otherwise read though!

This releases TODAY!
If you are a fan of the board game CLUE (or the excellent movie), this is a fun modern reimagining of the concept. YA murder-mystery set in an elite prep school in Maine, it has all the elements you expect (but no Tim Curry). Not perfect but it‘s a pick.

If you're a Clue fan, I think you'll love this one. It's very much a YA read but author Diana Peterfreund does a great job paying homage to the original (game, books, movie, etc). #mystery, #ya
