3 out of 5 stars


Everyone is dying to read the latest book in the popular Gap Lake mystery series, and Addison is no exception. As the novels biggest fan, Addison is flattered when the infamously reclusive author, R.J. Rosen, contacts her, granting her inside information others would kill for.
But when the most popular girl in Addison’s high school is murdered, Addison can’t help but think that life may be imitating fiction. And as other terrifying events from the book start happening around her, Addison has to figure out how to write her own ending -and survive the story.

Series? No, it’s a standalone


This book in my opinion had a lot of similiarities to Pretty Little Liars in the way that it was written. It was well written for the most part, albeit a bit dark and gruesome. The plot twists for the most part were expected.

It was an interesting premise with the main character being Addie who is obessed with a mystery book series called Gap Lake, she even has her own blog and writes her own fanfiction. Then one day Addie is contacted by the author of Gap Lake and she is beyong thrilled. Then mysterious things start happening in her little town and Addie has to figure out who is behind it all.

The characters were a little lacking as there wasn’t a super large cast of characters. Overall, I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars because it was enjoyable to read but it was easy to guess “who-dun-it” (in my opinion).

If you enjoy young adult contemporary mystery than this is the book for you!

Thanks for stopping by and reading this book review!
