Book Summary

Everyone in Fairview knows the story.

Pretty and popular high school senior Andie Bell was murdered by her boyfriend, Sal Singh, who then killed himself. It was all anyone could talk about. And five years later, Pip sees how the tragedy still haunts her town.

But she can’t shake the feeling that there was more to what happened that day. She knew Sal when she was a child, and he was always so kind to her. How could he possibly have been a killer?

Now a senior herself, Pip decides to reexamine the closed case for her final project, at first just to cast doubt on the original investigation. But soon she discovers a trail of dark secrets that might actually prove Sal innocent . . . and the line between past and present begins to blur. Someone in Fairview doesn’t want Pip digging around for answers, and now her own life might be in danger.

This is the story of an investigation turned obsession, full of twists and turns and with an ending you’ll never expect.

    Convicted murder, house parties and warning notes, OH MY.
    I love Pippa and how she decided to try and solve a murder case by making it her senior year project. I was a bit apprehensive – why is it that high schoolers can solve murder mysteries better than the actual police can? Huh? What is UP with that?! But I do love me a good YA thriller and this one had quite the reputation to uphold.

    This is a fast paced read and I really enjoyed the mixed media provided within. You can tell Pip is an extremely smart girl and I liked her approach to figuring out the madness. Uff, y’all. To be in high school in this day and age, I couldn’t even imagine! I was a little “say what” about one part because it didn’t quite make a lot of sense to me but whatever. Go Pip, GO!

    Despite a couple of inconsistencies within, this was a very enjoyable read. Weirdly though, I can’t find myself running to pick up the next book (but also, don’t threaten me with a good time!). Prepare to suspend a little reality but have fun following along. I had actually binged Veronica Mars for a couple seasons a couple months ago and then *voila* – Pip, meet Veronica. Veronica, meet Pip.

    I’ve never been into Veronica Mars or Nancy Drew, and I generally don’t like police procedurals or detective novels so reading a story about a teenager investigating a murder was not something that would ever be high on my priority list. But I heard from trusted sources they loved this one and have seen it plastered everywhere so I decided to give this one a shot. Holy crap that was good were my thoughts when I finished this one. I honestly did not expect to love this one as much as I did.

    A Good Girls Guide to Murder ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 is the story of Pip who decides to investigate a murder that happened 5 years prior as a school project. She’s an awesome character and I can see why people have been naming her as a favorite book character of theirs. This book is fairly large coming in at almost 400 pages, but it flew by. I can not wait for book number 2, 3, and 4! If you haven’t read this one yet, check it out soon!

    If you love YA thriller mystery books this is a must read! 💖📖 I read this one so quickly. Great characters and plot. Also, this author really keeps you guessing. There were so many possibilities for how this book could end, and it was far from a predictable ending. I’d totally recommend this book for YA fans!
