Review: Good Girl, Bad Blood by Holly Jackson


After the events of A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, Pip Fitz-Amobi has decided to give up being a detective. With the help of her boyfriend Ravi Singh, Pip set up a podcast to discuss the mysterious case of Andie Bell. Now everyone knows Pip and what she accomplished in her small Connecticut town.

Only, Pip isn’t sure she made the right decision about letting go. And when her friend Connor Reynolds approaches her after his brother Jamie goes missing, Pip knows that this is far from over. 

While Ravi is always there to help, Pip’s mom is against Pip going full on detective again. But when the police won’t do anything and Jamie’s own father thinks this is all a hoax, she knows that she’s the only person who can find Jamie. 

In this highly anticipated sequel, Pip risks her life again to find the truth. Except this time, it’s even more dangerous. 

Wow did we love Good Girl, Bad Blood. It’s always hard to top a great first book, but Holly Jackson did it. Everything from the character development, plot and the twisted mystery were done exceptionally well. 

First of all, Pip is such a great MC. She’s a total badass and an amazing friend. She’s all-in on anything she puts her mind to and threw herself into finding out what happened to Jamie— despite the pressure put on her by the media and her fans. 

The main characters were all back in this novel, and Ravi was as supportive as ever. He’s the perfect partner for Pip and we loved their sweet romance. Pip’s friends— minus a couple— rounded out a stellar supporting cast of characters. We love her hilarious brother and dad, who always provided comedic relief. 

The mystery was also incredible!! We admit, this second installment is definitely more intense than the first, and the reader truly sees the mental toll Pip’s detective ways takes on her. The ending to this book was also darker, so while be warned, buckle up for a thrilling ride!

We cannot wait for the third and final book in this series, As Good As Dead, which comes out next month! Get ready to pre-order, friends!
