ARC Review: Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday

Hey I have another review for you guys today!!!!! Today I will tell you about a great book called Deadly Cool, which is actually going to be a series.   This book comes out October 11, 2011! Here's the synopsis:

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.
This was a great mystery book!!  I am a huge fan of mystery books and this certaintly does mystery books justice.  First of all the mystery itself was really good. I had no idea who the killer was and it's certaintly a surprise when you find out.  Every chapter keeps you wanting more and more to find out whodunit.  I also love the relationships between all the characters and I think it kept the book feeling like a teenage book.  The plot, charcters, and overall book was great!  I can't wait to read more from Gemma Halliday.  I also absolutely LOVE the cover!!!! :) PS: Be on the lookout for the second book Social Suicide!

Determined to sweep local newspaper reporter, Chelsea Pressman, off her feet, he tries to wow her with his internet success. Chelsea has one goal, making it big as a reporter. Unfortunately the editor isn’t tossing any good stories her way. But her luck changes and she is first in line to cover a string of bizarre crimes. The notoriety she’s gaining from the front-page stories is addictive. The police finally trace the crimes to a common link – inkBLOT. Now, Ronnie has to clear his name as the number one suspect in Chelsea’s headline crimes.
Well, I love mystery and suspense books so this is def one of my favorite books! I have never read a mystery book quite like this one.....it's very unique and I love it!  I mean this book is so devious and sneaky ;).  So to start off I want to say that I love the sprinkle of romance between Ronnie and Chelsea, it really did a good job of diverting the reader away from having any sort of suspicions.  I also loved the hinted the underlying relationship with Ronnie and his BFF :).  That turned out to be really cute.  But, back to the mystery, I had no clue who to suspect while reading this book until of course the end.   This is a very well written suspense/mystery novel with tons of twists of turns.  I also loved how they made detail matter.  You'll come towards the end of the book when everything is wrapping up and you'll be like, "Oh yeahhhh, it all makes sense now :)".  This is def one of my mystery books so far! :)
