When former con artist Eleanor Ames’s homecoming date commits suicide, she’s positive there’s something more going on. The more questions she asks, though, the more she crosses paths with Miles Beckett. He’s sexy, mysterious, arrogant…and he’s asking all the same questions.
Eleanor might not trust him – she doesn’t even like him – but they can’t keep their hands off of each other. Fighting the infuriating attraction is almost as hard as ignoring the fact that Miles isn’t telling her the truth…and that there’s a good chance he could be the killer.
"An enjoyably twisty, romantic, and thoughtful prep-school mystery." -Kirkus Reviews
This is a long(er) book for a YA novel, but it was so good that I dropped everything I had to do, or at least pushed it aside until later, to read this novel in pretty close to one sitting. It's so compelling and the story keeps you guessing (and turning pages) well beyond the normal amount of ti... ...more
I really love Julie Cross’s writing so I was super excited to see that she was writing a mystery, suspense YA series! First of all, you have to know that I am obsessed with crime and suspense stories. I could watch Investigation Discovery 24/7… Dateline, I think I’ve seen every episode... ...more
I love crime shows. My mom and I are either bingeing a new drama on Netflix or watching episodes of Elementary on Hulu. This was a combination of both.

The cast the cast the cast THE CAST! I want to either be Eleanor's best friend. Or BE her. She was wonderfully sarcastic and manipulative, I loved her development. I also liked that Ellie was a bit of an unreliable narrator. She d... ...more

So, mystery/suspense isn't one of my go to genres, but when I heard one of my favorite authors was writing a series that was Veronica Mars-esque, I knew I had to read it. It was a long book, so I was slightly intimidated in the beginning, but it w... ...more

This book was great. The last time I read a series about espionage and mystery, it became one of my all-time favourites, so I was a little apprehensive about this one. But it was actually really good. I found myself guessing the entire time. And it was so reminiscent of Veronica Mars, which I lov... ...more

Do I have any fellow Veronica Mars fans out there? This book might just help Marshmellows with the supreme sadness that the absence of Veronica Mars TV show left us with. Think hot guys, some serious investigating... ...more
Received in exchange for a honest review.
I enjoyed this. I love Miles. You can see where his guilt about his best friend’s death is eating at him. Not that he should feel guilty but he does because they lost touch and drifted away when Simon felt awkward. Simon did get in touch with him though be... ...more
