Our customer reviews

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Hachette Children's Books and Netgalley.) This is the second book in the â??Poppy Sinclairâ?? series, but can be read as a standalone. Poppy and her boyfriend Michael are touring Cambridge University, where Michael is having an admissions interview, when she stumbles across a dead body, and a big mystery surrounding the murder. Who killed the man? And what does a secret society have to do with it? This was an okay murder/mystery story, although I did find it a bit slow in places. Poppy seems to have developed a bit of a habit of finding dead bodies it seems, and this book was no exception. I did hope that she might be a little more intelligent this time around, but she seemed to have problems making bad decisions, and generally putting herself in danger. The storyline was okay, but I did find it quite slow. I wanted to know what had happened, but I wanted more action and less talking. I did like the idea of the secret society and the mystery over the murders, but again, I wish the book had been faster paced. There was some romance, and a couple of awkward scenes between Poppy and Michael. I donâ??t have a problem with teens talking about sex in YA books, but I really think Poppy needs to have a better idea of what sheâ??s doing, and whether or not sheâ??s actually ready before getting into the position she ended up in! The ending was good, and it was nice to get a bit of action. I was ready to find out what was going on by that point, and I didnâ??t guess who the killer was. Overall; an okay YA murder/mystery, 7 out of 10.show more
