In the sleepy town of Townsend, Washington, there was an act so gruesome that no one would ever be the same.
What heinous crime do I speak of? Skylar Torres thinking she could pull off a crop top with that pudgy body of hers. Oh, did you think I was going to say my murder. Well, I thought it was more sensational than anything else, but the real scandal was who killed me and why.
You should already know my name since it was on everyone’s lips once they found me with my throat ripped out. People thought they should have only feared me, but the Liberty Lion’s cheer squad knew one thing, hunt or be hunted.
No one’s hands were truly clean from all the dirt and blood on them. Be safe, watch your back and always remember, Happy Hunting.
Quick & Slick!
This is a very different read from my usual, but it’s good to be shaken up every now and then!
Madison Taylor is Queen Bee at Liberty High – or at least she was, before her murder. Now the big question of the day is ‘whodunnit’? Unusually, this quest is narrated by the deceased, and that’s how we learn all about everyone and everything that goes, and has gone, on. So all we need to do is pay attention and find the murderer – easy, eh?
It’s only fair to point out that I’m fairly certain I’m not the target market for this novel but, nonetheless, I really enjoyed it! The writing is quick and slick and the story well told in a style to keep the reader always wanting to find out what happens next. I loved the array of characters and the traits of each and every one. This isn’t a sugar-coated read; I would guess it’s quite realistic and I’m so glad I attended school several decades ago! Definitely an author who will appeal – but not exclusively – to the younger generation and, although there are some minor errors which would benefit from a final edit, I’m happy to give this one 4* and my recommendation.
My thanks to the author for requesting my review, I downloaded my copy via Kindle Unlimited; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
