As good as dead is an exceptionally well
written book. From the very first sentence
all the way to the very last page it keeps
you entertained. I loved how the ending of
the book was so subtle yet it gave you enough
information to let you know exactly what
happened. I loved the different perspectives
that we received from this book and it was a
very enjoyable read. The book takes us on a
journey through Pip’s 3rd year in a row
investigating a missing persons’ case but
everything changes when the person missing is

Good Girl Bad Blood is the second book in
Holly Jacksons murder mystery trilogy. This
book was extremely well written and kept me
in suspense throughout the entirety of the
book. One thing I did feel was that the
ending of the book felt rushed leaving me a
little bit confused. All in all, the book
always keeps you questioning on what happens
next, making it a suspenseful and enjoyable
read.
