Blurry Review

Goodreads Blurb:

What happens when Little Miss Perfect's life is turned upside down?

Rachel Shull is about to find out. A year ago she broke up with her boyfriend, Danny, over suspicions that he was hiding something from her. Now Rachel's life is full of accomplishment, achievement, friends, and even a boyfriend. It all seems perfect, until a childhood friend dies in a tragic accident. When it's discovered that Danny had a heated argument with Kirsten shortly before her death, suspicions about his double life resurface. As the case unfolds and tragedy strikes people close to Rachel, she discovers that Danny isn't the only one with dangerous secrets. Life in the small town of Woodland, South Carolina becomes blurry with lies and deceit, and Rachel finds herself questioning everybody; even her new boyfriend. 

**3 Stars**
I was provided a copy of this book by the author for an honest review.

MY OVERVIEW: A very light read with an intriguing mystery. The book just feel short in a lot of places. I wish that there was more depth to the book.

PROS: I really liked the concept of the book. The story was interesting and kept me wondering until the wrap up at the end. I liked Zeke and wish there was more of him in the book. He was probably the best character out of all of them and the one with the most depth.

CONS: The characters were all very flat. The book needed some more build up and emotion. Rachel was told that her childhood friend died right before going into class and she pretty much shrugs it off. Also, the ending scene at Prom was pretty unrealistic. No criminal would give that much away. 

MY FINAL THOUGHTS: I am glad I read the book, but I just wish there was more to it. The story really was there though. It is what saved the book and kept me interested.
