A Good Girl's Guide To Murder Review

Think your favorite True Crime podcast or docuseries and times it by 5. That’s Holly Jackson's debut novel, A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder.

For her senior capstone project, Pippa Fitz-Amobi wants to solve a murder. Not just any murder though. She wants to solve the five-year-old closed case of the murder of Andie Bell. Andie Bell was murdered by Sal Singh, or so everyone thinks she was. It doesn't help that Sal was found dead with a suicide note saying he's sorry for doing it. But Pip remembers Sal, she knows him and knows that he would never be capable of doing something as horrible as murdering someone. As she begins uncovering secrets she entrusts Ravi, Sal's brother to help solve this crime and bring justice to the Singh family. Will they be able to solve the crime before they get hurt themselves? Secrets are best kept hidden when you live in a small town. 

This book grabbed me from the beginning and didn’t stop until the very last word. I can’t wait to see what Holly Jackson comes up with next!

Great for people who enjoy:

  • True Crime/Crime Fiction
  • One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
  • A Real Whodunit
  • Staying on the edge of your seat and not being able to put the book down

"Can you stop bleeding all over the murder board, please."
