Kill Joy: A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder Novella

We rated this book:


Prequeling A Good Girls Guide To Murder, Kill Joy stars Pippa Fitz-Amobi as she attends her friend’s murder mystery party. At first, Pip doesn’t really care for the fanciness of the 1900s party theme, but soon she finds herself invested in the mystery and her own character Celia Bourne. As she becomes increasingly engrossed in the game, Pip is intensely focused on figuring out the identity of the murderer. With more mysteries at every turn, will she be able to unmask the murderer before 3 hours are up?

I liked this book because it was entertaining, fun and easy to read. I would recommend reading the trilogy first so you can better understand and connect with the characters more, since the actual book is pretty short. I enjoyed the murder mysteries from the trilogy more (given this one was just a party, so it was more entertaining than actually murder mystery-esque), but this book was quite entertaining too. Overall it was pretty good, and I would recommend it to teens looking for an easy-to-read, entertaining mystery.
