Disclaimer: I bought this myself, all opinions are my own.
I have been DYING to read this ever since it was being promoted at YALC last year! I love a good murder mystery book and THIS DID NOT DISAPPOINT, I really enjoyed this one!
This book is about a case that was closed five years ago. School girl Andie Bell was murdered by her boyfriend Sal Singh. Everyone knows he did it. But Pippa Fitz-Amobi doesn’t believe it. She chooses the case as her final year project and investigates the murder and uncovers secrets that everyone wished stayed hidden. The real killer could still be out there…
This one was so well written and incredibly done that I never guessed who the murderer could be, Pippa came up with amazing evidence and theories that could’ve happened but even my guess wasn’t even right! This is the best, and I mean it, THE BEST murder mystery, thriller book that I have ever read, I can’t wait to meet the author at YALC this year so I can awkwardly tell her how much I loved it. The plots and twists weren’t any that I expected, it kept me on the edge of my seat and I just couldn’t put it down, I devoured it within an evening because I just NEEDED to know what was going to happen next!
A Good Girls Guide To Murder is Holly Jackson debut novel (a heck of a debut if I say so myself) so I’m already hyped up for her next book which is untitled on Goodreads but listed as a Mystery/Thriller so I already know that I need it in my life! I rarely want to reread mystery thrillers but I just know that I could easily pick this one up again and again despite knowing what happens as I might be able to see things they made the suspects suspicious!
I don’t know if it was obvious but I strongly recommend that you go on Amazon or go to Waterstones right now and buy yourself a copy if you haven’t yet, what are you waiting for? You need this book in your life, don’t lie to me. I promise that you won’t regret it!!!
