Pip has decided to do her senior capstone project on the 5-year-old cold case of a girl who went to the same high school. Under the guise of approaching the project from the topic of social media’s role in crime cases, Pip really intends on clearing the name of the other student – Sal - who was presumed to be the murderer after his apparent suicide and finding out what really happened to Andie Bell, whose body was never found. She teams up with Sal’s brother, Ravi, who also believes in Sal’s innocence, and together they set out to uncover the truth. But Pip quickly learns that there are layers of secrets here that she hadn’t guessed, and someone is out to stop her from investigating.

An okay mystery with some attempted twists at the end, although they didn’t have the shock value I would have liked them to, and in general the pacing was a little slow. I didn’t dislike it, but I also didn’t love it. The best part is the sweet slow burn romance between Pip and Ravi.

Overall, I love this series: felt like I was solving the cases alongside Pip and loved making connections between the 3 books and the plot twists were divine.
I originally began reading to see the hype for Ravi and justify the claims that he is a better book bf than Warner. He did not disappoint and was supportive of Pip no matter what (which I love).

However.
The reason I have rated it only 4 stars is because it didn't feel like Pip. Yeah she has PTSD after book 2, but it was too exaggerated. I'm pretty sure I must have skipped some page long paragraphs because of the over detail it contained.

Would definitely recommend. A good wrap up of Pip's story

P.S. " Hey Sarge, remember me" - book bf material

A great prequel novella to the A Good Girl's Guide to Murder series. I loved the ending and how it ties directly into book #1. As soon as I read it, my brain remembered exactly what happened in book #1 and how this all ties in.

Looking forward to reading book #2 in the series.
