How to Kill Your Best Friend by Lexie Elliott

How could Lissa have drowned?

She was a champion swimmer and knew not to swim in Kanu Cove in the dark, but she is gone.

We meet Georgie and Bronwyn at Lissa’s memorial service, but something is wrong.

Bronwyn received a note on the mirror in her villa that said she was at fault for Lissa’s death, and Georgie received a heavy packet of papers with only the words FOLLOW THE MONEY on every page.

Bronwyn was nervous, and Georgie had no clue what her message meant.

As we spend the days on the resort island, things seem to get more dangerous for everyone, and everyone seems to be acting a little strangely.

Who can anyone trust? Who can we the reader trust as we try to figure out what’s going on?

As you read, your head will be going back and forth between what’s going on, what really happened, and what is up with the characters.

And…to add to the confusion, there is an unidentified person talking about ways to kill someone.

I actually didn’t like the characters so they all were suspects in my mind.

The story line was a little mixed up and slow, but it worked out in the end because of Ms. Elliott’s writing style and creativity.  3/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.



  1. Thanks for stopping.

    Have you read this book? What did you think?

  2. I'm kind of glad I didn't get this one.
    Great review though.

  3. I do struggle with books full of unlikable characters, but the story can be a page turner, too.
