Okay so i was kinda slumping while reading the middle of this but it really redeemed itself in the ending/resolution. I loved this book: easy five stars. :)

I’ve enjoyed this series a lot. This book was by far my favorite of the trilogy. The beginning was a little slow, but it picked up quickly and it was absolutely amazing.  I laughed and I cried and I swooned. I get easily immersed into books and this one was just like that. I didn’t put it down until I had read it cover to cover. Such a good book.

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.

I really loved the way alle three books is intertwined in the final installment. But... as much as I loved it, I just found it a bit too far fetched maybe? I can't find the right word but... okay I'm gonna spoil from here on. 
Spoiler Her DNA and so on was all over the trunk of Jasons car, and don't even get med started on the duct tape. I just don'  get, why nobody, like NOBODY, wouldn't believe her. He had the trophies in his home for God's sake! It's practically being handed to the police. And DI Hawkins ist not stupid, so he would have figured it out! So I feel like the last 200 pages or so was just fluff.
Spoiler But it's still a really good story and I want to read the first books again to find the clues that I've missed!
