“The 10 Best New Mystery and Thriller Books of December are Giving Us Literal Chills” (E! Online)

“10 Books to Cozy Up With This December” (PopSugar)

A popular sorority girl. An unsolved murder. A campus podcast with chilling repercussions. 

Lucas Vega is obsessed with the death of Candace Swain, who left a sorority party one night and never came back. Her body was found after two weeks, but the case has grown cold. Three years later while interning at the medical examiner's, Lucas discovers new information, but the police are not interested.

Lucas knows he has several credible pieces of the puzzle. He just isn't sure how they fit together. So he creates a podcast to revisit Candace's last hours. Then he encourages listeners to crowdsource what they remember and invites guest lecturer Regan Merritt, a former US marshal, to come on and share her expertise.

New tips come in that convince Lucas and Regan they are onto something. Then, shockingly, one of the podcast callers turns up dead. Another hints at Candace's secret life, a much darker picture than Lucas imagined — and one that implicates other sorority sisters. Regan uses her own resources to bolster their theory and learns that Lucas is hiding his own secret. The pressure is on to solve the murder, but first Lucas must come clean about his real motives in pursuing this podcast — before the killer silences him forever.

Hope we get more Regan Meritt in the future!

Lucas Vega is hoping to uncover answers in the cold case of Candace Swain, a fellow college student murdered three years earlier. A homeless man was the main suspect, but Lucas has evidence that suggests otherwise. So far, he’s been railroaded by Candace’s sorority sisters and the Flagstaff Police, but he hopes with the help of Former US Marshall, Regan Meritt, he’ll be to get answers. Lucas has a personal stake in finding the truth, one he doesn’t want to share just yet.

I really liked Regan and Lucas and they made a good investigative team. I think a podcast, so popular right now, would be an excellent way to propel a cold case back into the spotlight. In this case it really got the attention of the community putting both Lucas and Regan in danger as they edge closer to the truth.

I’m a big fan of Allison Brennan’s mysteries and I’m always eager for her next release. Even though it was easy to guess at the identity of the killer I was sucked into the story eager to find out the motivations, what exactly happened and what the killer would do next! Regan Meritt was a confident, interesting female lead, coping with a personal tragedy, back in her hometown regrouping. She’s on leave with the US Marshal Department, and things were not all wrapped with her story. There was also a potential romance. I wonder if Ms. Brennan intends to continue her story in future books. I look forward to solving more mysteries with Regan if that’s the case!

Amy McFadden did a wonderful job with all voices, male and female and I wouldn't hesitate to listen to her again!

The tone…I almost quit

The way this reader makes all of the college age girls sound whiny grated on my nerves so badly I almost quit listening. I’ll be checking to see who is doing the reading of the books I’m considering and avoiding her in the future

It was ok.

This book was different than the Allison Brennan books I've read in the past.

I just felt this book was meh. I kept waiting for that twist or that whoa moment that just never came.

The narrator was tough to listen to. The way she pronounced her words just felt so pretentious. I wasn't a fan.

Very predictable

The book was ok. Don't expect a masterpiece. The murder comes back to haunt the characters.

Good storyline

I enjoyed the story but could not get over the obnoxious Valley girl accent. Thank you!

The premise behind the story is pretty good -

And the whole thing feels promising. But....it kind of devolves into a not so interesting Crazy Killer story with , yet another, traumatized damaged law enforcement officer. Why can't any of these people just be, normal? The whole damaged cop thing has become a cliche. And , even with all that, the story would be OK. But the narration does it no favors at all. There's this weird sing-songy little girly thing going on that is really, super annoying. All in All - Meh.
