Review: ‘A Good Girls Guide to Murder’

“A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder” is a novel by Holly Jackson and nothing short of addicting. The style of the book is not like others; you are venturing into more than just what the characters of the book say and do, but you are given a clear visual of how the events in the book play out fully, yet reading this book will still misguide you and make you rethink all you thought was true.

Five years ago in a quiet town, Andie Bell at the age of seventeen, was murdered and stuffed into the trunk of a car. All seems lost until the most heart shattering revolution was discovered. It was her boyfriend, Sal Singh, who killed her. Before the town can even catch their breath, Sal is found dead in the woods. The police determined he had committed suicide to avoid jail or out of guilt and closed the case after a few months.

Pippa Fitz-Amobi isn’t so sure the evidence all checks out. She takes it upon herself to investigate the crime from five years ago. This book was filled with suspense beyond belief. The author carefully crafted the book so we as readers can follow along as evidence ties more and more suspects to the “closed” case.

Even with all the threats and dangers investigating the murder brings, Pippa stays strong. I was heavily inspired and invested as I read this book. Even non-readers would find this impressive.
It would flow well as a movie or a show. It was extremely entertaining and I can’t wait to read the sequel!
