Chasing Truth (Eleanor Ames, #1)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
At Holden Prep, the rich and powerful rule the school—and they’ll do just about anything to keep their dirty little secrets hidden.

When former con artist Eleanor Ames’s homecoming date commits suicide, she’s positive there’s something more going on. The more questions she asks, though, the more she crosses paths with Miles Beckett. He’s sexy, mysterious, arrogant…and he’s asking all the same questions.

Eleanor might not trust him—she doesn’t even like him—but they can’t keep their hands off of each other. Fighting the infuriating attraction is almost as hard as ignoring the fact that Miles isn’t telling her the truth…and that there’s a good chance he thinks she’s the killer.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Chasing Truth (Eleanor Ames, #1) “Maybe trust isn’t a part of my life because I don’t want it to be.”

This was a YA mystery story about a girl whose best friend had died in mysterious circumstances.

Ellie was quite a curious character, and certainly liked to poke her nose into other people’s business. She did seem to put her skills as an ex-con-artist to good use, but she also got herself into some sticky situations as well.

The storyline in this was about Ellie trying to work out what had happened to her best friend Simon, as she didn’t believe that he had really committed suicide. The major problem I had with this book though was the pace, and the book seemed to really drag because of it.

The ending to this was okay, and I’m sure other people will enjoy it, it just didn’t really do it for me.
