Good Girl, Bad Blood | Holly Jackson | Review

“I said I would never do this again, never play the detective, never again lose myself to the world of small-town secrets. It wasnt me, not any more. I would have stuck to it too; I know I wouldve. But somethings happened and now I have to break that promise. Someone has gone missing. Someone I know.”





Pip Fitz-Amobi is not a detective any more.

With the help of Ravi Singh, she released a true-crime podcast about the murder case they solved together last year. The podcast has gone viral, yet Pip insists her investigating days are behind her.

But she will have to break that promise when someone she knows goes missing. Jamie Reynolds has disappeared but the police won’t do anything about it. And if they won’t look for Jamie then Pip will, uncovering more of her town’s dark secrets along the way… and this time EVERYONE is listening. But will she find him before it’s too late?


I absolutely loved this book. I really enjoyed A Good Girls Guide to Murder, I didn’t think that I could enjoy this one anymore but I definitely did. Good Girl, Bad Blood is even better and I honestly loved my time reading it.

I think the main difference for me is that AGGGTM I guessed most of the outcome very early on in the book. Don’t get me wrong, I still really enjoyed it because Holly Jackson made me guess my theory SO many times. However, I did not see the ending coming for this one. I literally could not have called it and not because it was too far-fetched, it certainly was not, it made SO much sense but I just didn’t see it. It isn’t very often that with these kind of books I don’t guess the ending very early on, so this is a huge achievement and just added to my enjoyment of the book.

I love the characters, Pip and Ravi are just wonderful. I love them separately and as a pair. I really enjoyed seeing how their relationship had developed since the drama had occurred in AGGGTM. I just love them so much. They are definitely one of my favourite double acts.

Also, am I the only person that cried around 50 pages in. The tribute to Ravi’s brother made me so emotional. Honestly, I did not expect it to come. Any book that can make me even slightly emotional deserves 5 stars.

If you have not read this series then please pick it up. I have heard nothing but good things about it and it is so worth the hype it has received!
