* I got this book for review*
I think this book was a super quick read and i enjoyed it. I think the unlikable characters made the start of this book a bit rough for me but overall it was quick read and one that the ending that saved this book. If you like books by jessica goodman def pick this book up and it also had clue and sherlock holmes vibes!!! It was a good read but it did not wow me!!

Digital audiobook read by Diana Bustelo.


This was just a hot mess. Teenagers with far too much money go to an exclusive island retreat for their “graduation party.” One gets killed and now they have to figure out who did it.

I didn’t like any of these kids. I thought the plot was uneven and too full of teenage angst for my taste. Who likes whom? Who's cheating on whom? How can s/he get him/her back? YAWN.

Muñoz seemed to be channeling Agatha Christie, in particular And Then There Were None but she failed to achieve the status of that original work.

Diana Bustelo did a pretty good job on the audio version. She has clear diction and kept a good pace. Too bad she didn’t have better material to work with.

I'm going to start with the positives. Hats off to this author for writing this book! I love a locked room mystery (they're my favorite trope in the mystery genre) and for setting it in teen/YA fiction. I want there to be more of these! The beginning few chapters was very gripping! But here come the negatives. I got really bored really quickly. With how the blurb was written and how the characters were introduced I knew how the kids all fit together. I think I was able to put it together because I read so many of these books, so for someone else this might not have been a problem! I was also not a fan of the many perspectives and always jumping between them. Honestly I just wanted Izzy and the murderer occasionally. The detectives weren't my favorite. But the ending third was really out there! The red herring got me and the reveal of the murderer did shock me! No spoilers, I just wish the middle had been shorter or more action was happening. All in all it was okay. It wasn't for me but it could be for someone else!… (més)
