Blurb (From Goodreads):
In Kara Taylor's Deadly Little Sins, Anne Dowling investigates a mysterious disappearance in this fast-paced, twisty conclusion to the Prep School Confidential series.
It’s August and Anne is back in New York City for the summer, but she can’t escape the memories of the terrible things that happened at the Wheatley School last spring— and the possibility of being expelled looming over her. When an unexpected— and suspicious— turn of events gets Anne sent back to Wheatley, she’s determined to figure out what happened to her favorite teacher and only adult ally at the school: Ms. Cross.
After a shocking, gruesome murder with connections to the Wheatley School occurs, Anne is convinced there’s more to Ms. Cross’s sudden disappearance, and that her favorite teacher is in danger. But after an ugly breakup with Brent and a new, inexplicable distance between her and Anthony, Anne isn’t sure who she can trust. And even worse, someone at Wheatley knows the truth about what happened to Ms. Cross— someone who will stop at nothing to keep Anne from learning the truth in this engrossing, unputdownable read.
My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

What happened to Jessica Cross? And can Anne discover the truth?
This was an okay story, but I lost interest.
Anne continued on sticking her nose in other people’s business, trying to singlehandedly solve mysteries, and generally putting herself in danger in this book. Her academic record went proper down the drain, and it was almost like she was trying to get expelled?! I mean could she not just keep her nose clean, do her homework, and let sleeping dogs lie for once?
The storyline in this was a continuation of the story from the previous books, with what happened to Jessica Cross being the main focus. I just wasn’t interested though. I didn’t get why Anne couldn’t just keep her nose out of it, and to be honest I didn’t really care what had happened.
There was a bit of romance, but I was surprised at who Anne ended up snogging in this book. I really wanted her to just make up her mind!
The ending was also a disappointment. Although Anne did solve the mystery, the consequences were not good, and the umm, let’s call it a ‘job offer’, that she got at the end was just corny, and unrealistic, and I really wasn’t impressed.
Overall; I think Anne just took it a bit too far in this one,
5 out of 10.
