See my review for book one, A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, here!
I was a bit dubious about going into this book. I really enjoyed the first book, but it could have stand on its own. There were still some unanswered questions, but they could have been left open. So I was a bit afraid the story would have been dragged out. However, I did give this book a try and I really enjoyed it! It does continue on with the mystery in the first book, but there are also new things happening.
This book takes place a couple of months after the first book, in that time she has started her podcast, in which she explains everything that happened in the first book. She has been saying that this was a onetime thing, but now someone close to her has gone missing. So she starts using her podcast to solve the mystery behind his disappearance.
I do think I preferred the mystery in the first book over the mystery in this one, but still the story had me hooked. I kept on listening to this book in big chunks since I just could not put it down. This is because of the plot, the writing, but also the great narration!
In this book we see more of how everything that happens affects Pip, and I did really like that! It made her more ‘human’. Since in the first book she sometimes felt a bit too perfect, being able to solve all these things other weren’t. She still does that in this book, but we can see how it affects her mood and her relations to other characters.
After the ending I’m really curious to what will happen in the last book!
I definitely recommend this if you’re into YA mysteries, and also definitely recommend the audiobook, it has amazing narration!
