Kill Joy by Holly Jackson Book Review [someone at this table was the murderer]


[A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder #0.5]

Pippa Fitz-Amobi is not in the mood for her friend’s murder mystery party. Especially one that involves 1920’s fancy dress and pretending that their town, Little Kilton, is an island called Joy. But when the game begins, Pip finds herself drawn into the make-believe world of intrigue, deception and murder.

But as Pip plays detective, teasing out the identity of the killer clue-by-clue, the murder of the fictional Reginald Remy isn’t the only case on her mind…

Find out where it all began for Pip in this prequel to the best-selling A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder and Good Girl, Bad Blood.



I was a little disappointed with the second book of this series, but this book reminded me of why I loved the first so much. You throw me into a Murder Mystery Dinner Party and I’m already happy – even if this is just a game that Pip and her friends were playing.

While the game was a lot of fun, this story really sows the seeds, leading to Pip’s decision to investigate the Sal Singh case, and shows her obsessive qualities and amazing detective skills as well. Despite only being 120 pages, this book is seriously fun and an important addition to the series.
