A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder Book Review

A Good Girls Guide to Murder Book Review

A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder is the #1 New York Times bestseller written by Holly Jackson. The story takes place in Fairview, Connecticut. A Senior at Fairview High School, Pippa, is very interested in true crime. She takes a particular interest in a local murder that happened five years in advance, a murdered girl who’s boyfriend is allegedly accused. Pippa decides to explore the case in further detail as her Capstone Project. She seems to not believe him to be the killer. This spirals down into events that could lead her into more danger than she anticipated. 

A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder to me was a very fun read. It definitely was an emotional roller coaster for me and was very suspenseful. After every chapter I found myself not wanting to put the book down. I would recommend this novel to people who enjoy mystery and crime. If I were to rate the novel, I would give it a five out of five stars.
