Publisher's Summary

When Shane accepts a scholarship to the University of California, she doesn't expect to be housed with a homophobic roommate. Nevertheless, upon making friends with her roommate's cousin Rayne and her best friend, Shane starts to feel at home. 

Then, one night, while hanging out with Rayne and her friend Adam on campus, the three witness a murder. Shane's idea of a normal school year collapses, and she is suddenly the target of this murderous killer. 

Will the three find out who it is before it's too late, or will they be the next victim of serious crime?

Interesting book

I love the mystery to it but I feel like it needed a little more to it for us to fully be impacted by the mystery. Overall good book and the ending is a surprised that wasn't really expected.

Interesting Mystery

This was an interesting read, I liked the mystery. I really liked that it wasn't very predictable.

The narration by Julie Beal was pretty good as well. She brought the characters to life, though i didn't love all of the voices. I'd recommend this good quick listen.

a good suspense book

I enjoyed this book. I thought I had figured out who the murderer was, not once, but twice, and when it was finally revealed I hadn't had a clue.
I thought the narrator did a great job too.

This is a fantastic read. If your a lover of mystery, this is a great one. I really like how the Author has brought out the story, and makes the story real as you listen. The Narrator with there Narrating also adds to making these characters so real. I definitely recommend this read.

Nice short story about murder on campus. Makes you think about those around and what they might be capable of.

I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review from the author/publisher/narrator.

The lady protest too much!

Shane has the worst first week of college. Her suite mate hates lesbians and Shane and her new friends rain and Adam witness what they think is A murder and now he’s after her.

The only complaint I have about this book is I wish it would have been longer. It was not at all predictable and it sometimes it was pretty funny. I love that!

😁 I liked the story

I enjoyed this short story. it was easy to get caught up in the characters. I did love the way it ended, just because it wasn't exactly how I predicted it. I definitely recommend this book.

Great Read

Nicole hit it out of the park with this novel. I really liked everything about the characters. They were believable, well developed and diverse which was very engaging . The story line was fast paced and believable and well laid out. Julie did an exceptional job narrating the variety of voices and the vast dispositions of the characters. I would recommend this audio book to anybody but especially to folks with limited time to relax and enjoy as it is a short novel. Keep them coming Nicole.

Good mystery

The characters were well done, though i did cringe every time they said Shane and Rain lol. I didnt like Izzy at first. I did figure out the "bad guy" before they were revealed but I still enjoyed the story.

um... what was that

first legalities, I have been given this book free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review. ok now that that's out of the way... what the heck was that, seriously. Potential spoiler alert we're supposed to believe street seeing a girl get kidnapped you just go to sleep... you doing follow up? So much of this story doesn't make sense. and all the kids are all of a sudden eager to go detective and solve a crime... most people stay as far away from that as possibly. just so little reality I'd sooner believe in dwarves and elves. The only reason I didn't go below 3 stars was because the book wasn't awful. just ridiculously unbelievable.
