Fast-paced, well written,
This review is from: Killing Rachel: The Murder Notebooks (Paperback)
Rose's mother and Joshua's father have disappeared. To everyone else the case is closed and the couple are believed dead. But to Rose and Josh there is a question mark hovering over everything. Josh strives to decipher the puzzling `murder notebooks' and Rose continues to hold onto the hope that she will see her mother again.
Rose starts to receive letters from a girl she used to be friends with. Rachel is insistent that Rose calls her, she has information she needs to tell her that is of the utmost importance. At first Rose dismisses the letters as a nuisance. Rose ended their friendship a long time ago and feels no need to resurrect it...especially when she knows that Rachel lies.
But then Rose learns of Rachel's death. Unable to shake the feeling that she somehow let her down, Rose goes back to her old school to learn what she can. After all, sometimes we must go back in order to move forward. Josh takes Rose on the journey, not knowing that both will discover unthinkable truths.
Killing Rachel was a taut, well-paced story. It was a decent page-turner, and will whet the appetite for all budding crime novel lovers. This sequel continued the series nicely, and left the reader wanting more.
