Book Review: Deady Cool by Gemma Halliday

Deadly Cool

Synopsis (from Goodreads):  
First I find out that my boyfriend is cheating on me. Then he’s pegged as the #1 suspect in a murder. And now he’s depending on me to clear his name. Seriously?
As much as I wouldn’t mind watching him squirm, I know that he’s innocent. So I’m brushing off my previously untapped detective skills and getting down to business. But I keep tripping over dead bodies and I’m still no closer to figuring out who did it. And what’s worse: all signs seem to point to me as the killer’s next victim.
I really need to pick a better boyfriend next time.

My Thoughts:  Deadly Cool is a fun and fast paced mystery that was a great change from the paranormal books I've been reading lately.  Don't get me wrong here...I love my paranormal stories but once in awhile I need a break and this was a refreshing read!

I loved Hartley, who always seem to get herself into the craziest situations.  She was determined and strong-willed and even though her boyfriend Josh cheated on her, she was willing to help clear his name.  I loved how snarky she was and found her quite entertaining.

Sam is Hartley's sidekick.  She is a great partner-in-crime for Hartley and together they make a hilarious team.  She is always there for Hartley and I enjoyed her charcter almost as much as I liked Hartley.  She was a strong and loyal friend.

I did figure out who the killer was before the end but for the most part, the book kept me guessing.  It took awhile for me to figure it out but I did.  However, despite this little downer, I thought the book was quirky and fun.  I couldn't put it down because I didn't want to miss another crazy situation the girls got in.  I laughed throughout most of the book and really enjoyed this light and fluffy read!  I would highly recommend it to those who like a mystery that is full of fun!
