MY FAVOURITE BOOK I'VE EVER READ!!! 

i loved this book so much, the story was just as amazing as it was in a 'good girls guide to murder' and 'good girl, bad blood'. i fell more in love with the characters and i cried so much at the end as i didn't want to let them go - it being the last book in the trilogy. i think about this book 24/7 it's my absolute favourite. it makes me wonder if holly jackson had everything planned out from a 'good girls guide'. a must read if you enjoy murder mystery books!! read the first two in the trilogy before this one though as there are links to the previous books you probably wouldn't fully understand without reading the first two.

this book broke me. i stayed up late at night to finish it, and i just feel empty. although, it's now one of my favourite books of all time.
Spoiler "hey sarge, remember me?" was the thing that got me :'(
i would definitely recommend the whole trilogy though <3

I really the first two in this series but no. The questioning of morality and complete character decline is not something I can get behind. And it’s just so out of character for Pip, where that leap doesn’t make logical sense. I really feel like this book just did not need to go there. I was just upset and disappointed for a majority of this book, so no.
Spoiler how am I supposed to believe that Pip would just give up on her morals completely and do something that she was scarred by for the entire beginning of the book? She went from being that affected/disturbed by someone dying in front of her, to killing someone so violently/brutally? I don’t think so. I know that Jason was a bad man, but come on. And Ravi really just went along with his girlfriend MURDERING someone? I get that he had just done something horrible and she had no hope in justice, but still, she violently killed him.
