Someone is missing. Nobody’s talking. But this time, EVERYONE is listening…

Pip Fitz-Amobi is not a detective any more. Her true-crime podcast about the murder case she solved last year has gone viral. Yet Pip insists her investigating days are behind her.

But she will have to go back on her word when someone close to her goes missing and the police can’t do anything about it. If they won’t investigate, then Pip will, uncovering more of her town’s dark secrets along the way. But will she find the answers before time rungs out?

My Thoughts

Good Girl, Bad Blood is the third instalment in the Good Girl’s Guide to Murder series by Holly Jackson (you can read my other reviews on the series here). I will be totally honest I completely loved this series and in all honesty it made me fall back in love with reading again. I couldn’t wait to start this book after finishing the last one.

I usually find with any series, whether it is a film, TV or book, that they tend to get worse as the series goes on and there is very few exceptions to this rule. A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder series is one of them.

Good Girl, Bad Blood is just as addictive as the first book in the series, I couldn’t put it down. Due to all of the twists and turns in the plot I found that I struggled to put it down as I just kept wanting the answers to my never ending list of questions and ideas of who the culprit would be.

I think the fact I couldn’t put this book down is a real testament to Holly Jackson as an author. I think she has a brilliant writing style and is an even better storyteller who can keep the reader hooked from the second they pick up the book.

Pippa definitely felt as though she had grown in Good Girl, Bad Blood but it also felt like being reunited with an old friend. It was great that she still had that familiar desire to uncover the truth and is a character that you can truly get behind and root for to come out on top.

I think that the overall mystery of storyline was paced really well and the twist and turns of the storyline were well timed. I love the fact that the podcast elements of the story have returned in Good Girl, Bad Blood as this adds a modern element to the book.

I recommend this series to everyone I speak to as I think it is just excellent. As I mentioned earlier in this post it is a well written page turner that keeps you wanting more!
