I enjoyed this book so much! I have a guilty/ not-so-guilty pleasure of crime and mystery novels and this satisfied every need for it. All the book links, synopsis and author info are below this review so you check out the book!
The characters were likable- lovable, even- and the plot was nicely intricate and kept me guessing through the whole thing. Yes, a few things were a tad bit predictable but the aspects that really counted in the long run were executed beautifully.
Ellie was a great protagonist which really made the story easy to read and Miles was always going to be that swoon-worthy love interest- it was meant to be!
I like how the romance wasn't rushed and didn't overshadow the main storyline. It was slow-burning and didn't resemble the dreaded 'insta-love' in the slightest- it was quite the opposite!
I found the whole concept incredibly interesting and all the twists and turns had me utterly gripped in a way that resulted in my lack of sleep. (And, no, I didn't regret it in the morning).
It was well thought-out and each small detailed added up so nicely by the end.
I would definitely recommend this book if you're into crime/mystery/thriller books as this is the perfect story to satisfy those needs.
Thank you for reading! Please feel free to comment your thoughts. Stay amazing!
Chasing Truth- Julie Cross
Publication Date: September 27th, 2016
Publisher: Entangled Teen
At Holden Prep, the rich and powerful rule the school- and they'll do just about anything to keep their dirty little secrets hidden.
When former con artist Eleanor Ames' 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 thinks she's the killer.
