I love the creepy book cover. Its dark, chilling and mysterious. The main characters are described well and given enough background that you can relate to their personalities. The secondary characters are a but vague but you get enough information and character description to know how they fit into the story.
I really enjoyed that the setting is described as what appears to be an idyllic, a coastal beach town. It’s a much better setting than a cold, winter in some desolate backwoods city.
Cara wants desperately to be popular, to be part of the “in” crowd. Her boyfriend Joe makes that possible. They’ve dated for 2 years but Joe hasn’t turned out to be a very good boyfriend. Cara has wanted to break up for a long time. The only reason she hasn’t is because she fears his sister, Kat, will no longer be her friend and that she will no longer be part of the popular group. When Cara discovers Joe dead her life takes some dangerous and dramatic changes. Everyone seems determined to blame her for Joes death, including the Detective investigating the case.
I liked the character Cara. She seems like an average 16 year old girl. She wants the normal things any teen does; to be popular, to be liked, to have a boyfriend, a new cell phone.
Despite Cara's bad decision to keep dating Joe just to keep her “popular” status, throughout the rest of the book she does make some better choices. Well, maybe not trying to solve the murder herself!
The book is a pretty quick read and is full of excitement, suspense and a murder mystery with some creepy, unusual twists to keep you guessing. The book ends with a cliff hanger. It leaves open the possibility that the author will write a sequel. Seeing that one of the characters is a Detective and his younger brother is a new (old) friend of Cara’s…… the possibilities seem endless!
I recommend this bookfor ages 14 and older.
I received the book free from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. That does not effect my rating nor my review.
My review will be posted on netgalley, amazon, good reads, and moonshineartspot.blogspot
When a detective starts digging into Joe’s death and an old friend Ryan turns up in town, Cara finds herself in the middle of her own investigation into the strange circumstances surrounding that awful night.
This is a YA crime novel and I found it written in a really good style that kept me interested throughout the book. Cara was a typical teenager trying to better herself, mixing with the high society. Ryan is a down to earth kid that somehow reminds Cara of who she really is and what is important in life.
The only thing slightly disappointing about this book is that I found the last few chapters quite rushed. I felt they were missing the attention to details that was so great in the rest of the novel.
Overall this is a great book, proper page turner and hugely recommended to all who like a bit of mystery and crime. It has some good elements of the upper classes and their abuse of power, money and drugs and on the other side the working class family, doing their best by their children.
