I loved all of the twists in this book. It was a great ending to the trilogy and ties up a lot of loose ends. I like how it shows Pip struggling mentally with her past cases and seems realistic in that sense. It also shows how broken the justice system can be.

I feel like I am dying, it's probably because I have been crying for the past 2 hours while my heart has been breaking. 
This is one of the darkest books I've ever read and also the best book. It was so good and having the main twist exactly the middle of the book made it stand out from the other murder mystery books and I think this is one of the greatest series ever written. A Good Girl's Guide To Murder could not have had a better ending. It wasn't perfect but neither is Pip. 
I've already been raving about this series since the day I completed the first book, but I'm pretty sure now that I've felt all these emotions that I can't define, I am never going to shut up about how absolutely gorgeous and amazing this series is and how beautiful Holly Jackson's writing is.
