I won an ARC of THE DEAD GIRLS DETECTIVE AGENCY by Suzy Cox from Epic Reads (@epicreads) on Twitter.
Summary from Amazon:
At first, I wasn't sure I was going to like Charlotte. She seemed so fashinista girly-girl (describing her boots---I had to think hard who DVF was!), but the more we got to know her, the more I liked her. She wasn't just a spoiled princess, she liked photography, she liked music, and most of the time, she wore Converse! But the thing that surprised me the most about Charlotte, was the ending. I wasn't expecting her to say that to Tess, but then I also wasn't expecting Tess to do what she did, either!
I wasn't expecting the murderer to be who it was. Though, once the clues started pointing in that direction, I was like, "DUH!" I kind of felt like I had seen this as part of a movie or tv show at some point, but it was written in a way that I just didn't care if I had. I liked it.
The author, Suzy Cox, is British (or at least, lives in London), and at some points, the book felt like it had more of a British feel---some of the slang was different (like calling a resume a "CV"). Though, I'm pretty sure had I read this in high school, I wouldn't have thought twice about it.
All in all, a pretty interesting murder mystery. If you are a fan like I am, then you'll enjoy it.
Thank you, @EpicReads and HarperCollins Children's Books for sending me a copy. I really appreciate it.
