Hartley had thought she had the perfect relationship with her boyfriend but now she has discovered her boyfriend has been cheating on her. But when Hartley goes to confront him, she encounters an unexpected surprise, the girl he had been cheating with, strangled with a pair of headphones. But what could happen when the police suspect Hartley's boyfriend of being the killer? Even though Hartley knows he didn't do it, why would she lift a finger to help him after everything he's done to her? She ends up working with Sam, her best friend, and Chase, the school bad boy, to try to clear his name. After more murders are committed, Hartley starts to worry that she could be the next victim. Who is the killer? Will it end up the one nobody suspects?
"Deadly Cool" is a hilarious book. You don't usually see people killed with their own ipod headphones. I thought it was funny how similar Hartley was to Nancy Drew. I can't wait to read Gemma Halliday's next book.
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.Book description to come.
