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.

It has been so long since I‘ve read a murder mystery, and oh have I missed them. There is nothing like trying to solve a crime along side the main character. This series has pulled me completely under, and I cannot wait to read book three.

Book 42📚 4⭐️

After successfully solving the murder of Andie Bell last year, Pips podcast takes off; setting her up as a global sensation. But after swearing off future investigations a friends brother goes missing and asks for her help finding him. Where is Jamie Reynolds?

Once again so behind on reviews so let's play catchup.

I devoured this series about a girl who investigates a murder-suicide that happened years before in her home town. The case is closed, but Pip thinks the police and community were too quick to make assumptions. And the more she digs, the less the accepted narrative adds ups. The killer in the 3rd book was way too obvious, but overall a strong series. Can't wait to see the TV adaptation.

rachelsbrittain This is kind of a review of the trilogy as a whole but the first book is 2mo
Tamra The first in the series is the book my daughter & I are reading as a buddy read this summer. Glad to know it‘s a great ride! 2mo

This is an absolute masterpiece that kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. The character development, plot twists, and suspenseful storyline had me hooked from the very first page. The author‘s writing style is engaging and immersive, making it impossible to put down (although I had to in order to get some other books read). The main character Pip, is a relatable and strong female lead that you…

4 ⭐ This sequel does not suffer from the second book slump. It gives you a mystery and it just keeps on going. Pip is winding up her first podcast for the mystery Sal‘s brother and Addie. There‘s been a little bit of backlash on the podcast because well, it‘s the Internet. But now her friend, Connor‘s brother, is missing, the police won‘t search for him. Pip is the only person who can help. This book continues the ideas and the characters

LibrarianRyan that from the first book and is a new mystery to solve. This mystery has a few twists and turns that one is not going to expect. It is well written, and it‘s fun to read. Do you like a mystery or a thriller? Pick up book but, but first read book one because you will need it. Also, make sure you have book 3 on hold because you‘re going to want it. 5mo

I'm not sure how to rate this or even what to say about it. I was invested in finding out what happened to Jamie so the mystery aspect was mostly satisfying. But the end left me sad & annoyed. I don't much like the people of this town & by the end of this book I didn't care much for Pip either. Soft pick but I'm not feeling inclined to read the last one.
Has anyone read the British version of this series? Is the location the only difference?

erank58 I started the third and DNFed it almost immediately, which makes me sad because AGGGTM was a rare 5-star YA for me! 6mo
bookandbedandtea @erank58 I feel validated for my decision to abandon this series! 😁 Which is a bummer because I, too, really liked the first one. 6mo

A friend of Pip's ask her to investigate his brothers disappearance. Twists and turns, surprise ending. Use of podcast/notes to aid in the story were good, the story itself not as good as first one (more of a stretch, writing not as good). Overall though, good enough for me to want to read the next one.

Make a great day everyone❄️

I had an old BMW, bought at an auction, that I enjoyed, other than that the make or model of car not a big deal to me, more of the features. As I get older (and technology changes as well as what comes standard on a car changes) which features matter change. Younger me ...convertible, cup holder, stereo system. Older me.....tire alerts (shows which tire low), blind spot alert, automatic brights. 🤣

The sequel to “a good girl‘s guide to murder”. This one was an audiobook for me. And it worked really well as an audiobook. I liked the storyline and the twists and turns. Can‘t wait to read the next one in the series

The second instalment and still as good as the first! Pip releases a true crime podcast which goes viral. Someone close to her goes missing so Ravi and Pip begin uncovering their towns secrets. Pip has to play a dangerous game and reach in to her dark side, not everyone can help her this time round. Break ins, disappearances, court cases - it‘s all in this book. Fast-paced, nail biting and brilliant story telling!

What an awesome follow up to AGGGTM! Pip swore she was done with amateur sleuthing, but when her best friend‘s brother goes missing and the police won‘t investigate, she steps up to the plate.

The 2nd book starts off slow as well. I don't know if this is an intentional trend of this author or not.
I struggled to finish, but still intrigued for the 3rd in this series.

Loved the continuation of Pip and Ravi's banter and relationship. The plot and direction was shocking and just as mysterious as the first, though near the end it was unpredictable due to the sudden new direction. Seeing Pip become more angry and traumatised was interesting and I feel for her. The ending was good and left some loose ends which I'm hoping are cleared up in the third and final book.

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.

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.
