Where do I start with this book?!
I loved this book so I’m finding it hard to reconcile the wonderment in my head with words on a page! I feel like I need to read a thesaurus to learn all the words that I could possibly need for this review! 🙂
First up, here’s someone else’s words, publishing house Harper Collins, describing the book:
“HE’S WATCHING HER. SHE DOESN’T KNOW IT…YET
When a bomb explodes at the University of Amsterdam, aspiring criminologist Georgina McKenzie is asked by the police to help flush out the killer.
But the bomb is part of a much bigger, more sinister plot that will have the entire city quaking in fear.
And the killer has a very special part for George to play…
A thrilling race against time with a heroine you’ll be rooting for, this book will keep you up all night!
WINNER OF THE 2015 DEAD GOOD READER AWARD FOR MOST EXOTIC LOCATION”
The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die is the first in a series following Georgina McKenzie based in Amsterdam. George is a Cambridge University student on an exchange in the city. When a bomb explodes at her university she can’t help but get involved, dragging her friend Ad along with her.
After George meets Inspector Van den Bergen, he enlists her help as she writes a blog and he thinks it’s a good way to reach the suspects. Soon they realise that the bomb was a person, in George’s class. When another bomb goes off and the bomb is another student the race to find the perpetrator begins.
I don’t want to go too much further in the plot here as there was an OMG moment for me just over halfway through and I don’t want to spoil that for anyone. I was actually annoyed at myself that I didn’t put the pieces together before it happened!!!! Then again, that’s ha,f the fun, working backwards to see what you may have missed!
I downloaded The Girl Who Wouldn’t Die when it came out as so many fellow book bloggers had been talking about it and I’m so glad I did! I’ve also got book 2 on my kindle, The Girl Who Broke The Rules aaaaaaand I’ve totally preordered book 3, The Girl Who Walked In The Shadows!
I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads, and I still can’t find the right words to explain how much I enjoyed this book! 🙂 Just go and get in and decide for yourself! 😉
Happy reading! 😊📖
