Dead Girls Don't Lie by Jennifer Shaw Wolf

Dead Girls Don't Lie
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Rachel died at two a.m . . . Three hours after Skyler kissed me for the first time. Forty-five minutes after she sent me her last text.
Jaycee and Rachel were best friends. But that was before. . .before that terrible night at the old house. Before Rachel shut Jaycee out. Before Jaycee chose Skyler over Rachel. Then Rachel is found dead. The police blame a growing gang problem in their small town, but Jaycee is sure it has to do with that night at the old house. Rachel’s text is the first clue—starting Jaycee on a search that leads to a shocking secret. Rachel’s death was no random crime, and Jaycee must figure out who to trust before she can expose the truth.
In the follow-up to her powerful debut, Jennifer Shaw Wolf keeps readers on their toes in another dark, romantic story of murder and secrets.

Dead Girls Don't Lie by Jennifer Shaw Wolf

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dead Girls Don't LieThis was a YA contemporary mystery story, about a girl who was trying to discover her best friend’s murderer.

Jaycee was an okay character, although sometimes she would have benefitted from putting her brain in gear a bit. Most of the guys in this were a bit creepy though!

The storyline in this was about Jaycee trying to find out why her best friend Rachel was shot and killed, but the pace was way too slow for me, it felt like it took forever for anything to happen, and that bored me a bit.

The ending to this was okay, but I wasn’t really happy about who the murderer turned out to be.
