Publisher Description

THE MUST-READ MULTIMILLION BESTSELLING MYSTERY SERIES • Everyone is talking about A Good Girl's Guide to Murder! With shades of Serial and Making a Murderer this is the story about an investigation turned obsession, full of twists and turns and with an ending you'll never expect.

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.

And don't miss the sequel, Good Girl, Bad Blood!

"The perfect nail-biting mystery." —Natasha Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“Absolutely LOVED this book honestly one of my favorites. I picked this up because I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and try another genre and this was a perfect book to do that. Kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time and kept me guessing. I 100% recommend. I also liked that little sprinkle of romance and it didn’t take away from the story at all. I love this book 🤍”

Thumbs Up“I liked Part One 'cause of the insight into Pippa's investigation style. She turned out very different from what I had assumed her to be like from reels spoilers and the general idea of a smart girl who likes studying and investigation. She was a lot less 'typical nerd', more of a somewhat normal nerd. Part Two felt a little bland. I really felt a bit more thrill could've been added to it although our 'unknown' was an amateur. The scoping out leads was interesting but a little drawn out. Part Three picked up the pace and I was all for it, until the pace became too fast. It was exciting but some details felt missing. Highlights: - The investigation - Ravi with cold water in tea (how dare he) - The plot twists - The stupid courage - Barney”

Thinking Face“It was ok… very complicated story to come up with so it was very clever in that regard! it sometimes felt to me like when you watch a movie where a killer comes into the house and the person runs upstairs and you’re yelling at the screen “why are you going up the stairs??get out of the house!!” bc i felt a lot of what pip does in the book is just so dumb and unrealistic that i had a hard time truly investing myself in it… although it was still engaging! Also, Ravi was really annoying to me!”

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“I fell in love with this book characters and most of all the author Holly Jackson who easily became one of my favourites of all time. Pippa (the protagonist) has turned into one of my favourite fictional characters of all time and Ravi is just as amazing! This plot is twisty and definitely full of drama and shocking moments but it is written beautifully and I adore it cant wait for Good girl, Bad blood & As Good As Dead!”
