Good Girl, Bad Blood
Good Girl, Bad Blood | Holly Jackson
The highly-anticipated and brilliantly crafted crime-thriller sequel to the no.1 debut of 2019, A GOOD GIRL'S GUIDE TO MURDER Pip Fitz-Amobi is not a detective anymore. With the help of Ravi Singh, she released a true-crime podcast about the murder case they solved together last year. The podcast has gone viral, yet Pip insists her investigating days are behind her. But she will have to break that promise when someone she knows goes missing. Jamie Reynolds has disappeared but the police wont do anything about it. And if they wont look for Jamie then Pip will, uncovering more of her towns dark secrets along the way... and this time EVERYONE is listening. But will she find him before its too late? Perfect for fans of One of Us Is Lying, Eva Dolan, C L Taylor, We Were Liars and Riverdale Praise for A Good Girl's Guide to Murder: 'A taut, compulsively readable, elegantly plotted thriller' - Guardian 'A fiendishly-plotted mystery that kept me guessing until the very end.' - Laura Purcell, bestselling author of The Silent Companions 'There is a lot to really enjoy in this story and there is great energy to the writing, as well as some fine characterization' - Peter James, award-winning and no.1 bestselling crime thriller author of Detective Superintendent Roy Grace series 'Twisty, compulsive and so, so clever' - Savannah Brown, author of The Truth About Keeping Secrets 'That ending! Pure genius' - Yasmin Rahman, author of All the Things We Never Said 'This book was a delight from start to finish. I laughed. I cried. And I very much enjoyed attempting to solve the case with Pip (who I now want to be my best friend). I didn't guess the twist, and I don't think many people will. Holly Jackson has absolutely killed it with her debut!' - Aisha Busby, author of A Pocketful of Stars and contributor to the award-winning A Change is Gonna Come 'Prepare to be murdered by this book. Dark, dangerous and intricately plotted my heart literally pounded. I haven't been this addicted to anything since Serial. Holly Jackson is the next big thing, I promise' - Laura Stevens, author of The Exact Opposite of Okay 'Twisty and compelling' - Fiona Noble, Bookseller

I enjoyed revisiting these characters. The second book was just as good as the first. Both make you think about the good bad binary. This one was a little more in your face about it. It makes you ponder and not just about the mysteries. The ending had some surprises just like the last as well. I also like how this book shows Pip angry and a little out of control. It makes her an authentic character. I‘d recommend this series and will read #3.

I loved this book! It was such a good sequel to “A Good Girl's Guide to Murder“. It had the same feel, but it was darker. Jackson's books are very well written and have concise wording. I love how she left the last book with some loose ends so that she could continue with in the next book. These loose ends interested me so much that I bought the book even before I read it. Overall, great, semi short read.

A fun and addicting mystery. I can't wait to read the finale one.

I'll be posting my points next week for week 1 and 2.
I got sick and I didn't go the energy to do much. I've been reading slowly. 🎃

PHEW! This sequel was faster paced and more intense than the first book — I stayed up til the wee hours last night finishing it, even though I know better. Lots of action, thoughtful mysteries, and some interesting, in-depth character development. Maybe a couple more obvious clues than the first, but that didn‘t detract from the experience. On to book 3! (So glad I don‘t have to wait!)

Good Girl, Bad Blood - 🤘⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Pippa is at it again and things get darker and more dangerous. And I did not see that end coming.

Critical Role - more like ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 but it was a decent start to a new (to me) series. All the snarky half-elves.

The book is even more rewarding when you listen to it. It really felt like I was following a true crime podcast. I personally enjoyed seeing Pip embrace her shadow and question the person she truly is and the image she's built for herself. It was also really refreshing to get a break from the missing girl/woman in danger trope. Unique, imaginative, fun, and entertaining as hell. I'm all in on this series.

Oh god, this series has reawakened the monster in me that devours a book in a day. I am so obsessed with these books and after the first book, this really didn't disappoint. It was everything and more than I expected. Such a quick fast paced gripping read. I literally felt the anxiety Pip felt throughout. I didn't even realise that the book was actually in third person all this time and only noticed it at the end. Was literally fused with Pip.

PaperbackPirate These books are so good! Can‘t wait to read the last one. 💙📚 7mo

I had no intention of reading this book in 3 days, let alone staying up til 2 am to finish it tonight, but here we are. Maybe the large blended coffee this afternoon helped 😜 Another Holly Jackson page turner!! Just as enjoyable — maybe even moreso — than book 1. Can‘t wait for my hold on book 3 to come in at the library.

Holly Jackson‘s YA thriller sequel accomplishes that rare feat of being an even better read. Jackson sensitively deals with the fall out from the first novel (for Pip and her friends and family) and then creates a new mystery that significantly overlaps with the first. I have some nitpicks (mainly around the rape trial but also some about Cara) but it is a genuinely gripping read and I am looking forward to the concluding book in this trilogy.

If you're able to, listen to this on audiobook. The format is perfect as Pip switches to recorded interviews and plays clips from her podcast. When Pip needs to disguise a person‘s voice for protection, they even add in a voice modulator. It‘s truly an experience listening to this. If you‘re a fan of mysteries and true crime, give this series a read!

Super readable YA crime is just what you need sometimes. Jackson has really nailed this genre. At times I thought that beyond the fairly adolescent context (school and parents feature relatively frequently) I wouldn't necessarily read this as YA. I particularly enjoyed the use of podcast transcripts, and other documents as a structural device. I'm looking forward to getting into Book 3.

Someone told me they thought this book wasn‘t as good as the first one, but they were wrong. I feel so much more after listening to this one. Bailey Carr, the Narrator who portrays Pip, just makes Pip come alive for me. It‘s a full cast audio, but she makes the difference. It‘s so good. #5 #BookSpinBingo #22 #BFC22 #JUMPSTART2022 #SERIES2022 #JoyousJanuary #LiterALLyBOOKish #Wintercosy

Pippa said she was done being a detective after the Addie Bell case. However, when Jamie Reynolds goes missing, she chooses to help find him. What will she uncover this time around?

Like the first one, this book has a lot of twists and turns, and I love it. It doesn‘t end how I thought it would in the beginning. I do wish there was more romantic moments between Pippa and Ravi though.

Reading this book was a pleasure. It maybe wasn't the most believable but still. Not every book has to be.

This didn't have scary scenes like the first installment had and that was a bit disappointing. But there was still a mystery to solve and it was captivating to follow how it goes.
