Title: Truly, Madly, Deadly
Author: Hannah Jayne
Genre/s: Young Adult, Mystery, Thriller


They Said It Was An Accident...

Sawyer Dodd is a star athlete, a straight-A student, and the envy of every other girl who wants to date Kevin Anderson. When Kevin dies in a tragic car crash, Sawyer is stunned. Then she opens her locker to find a note:

You're welcome.
Someone saw what he did to her. Someone knows that Sawyer and Kevin weren't the perfect couple they seemed to be. And that someone—a killer—is now shadowing Sawyer's every move...

 My Thoughts:

A suspenseful psycho-thriller, Truly, Madly, Deadly by Hannah Jayne will give you the creeps and keep you up all night. Watch your back! There might be someone watching. 

When her boyfriend, Kevin, died in a car accident, Sawyer Dodd was stunned. She felt responsible for what happened because she broke up with him, hours before the accident. Technically, she was indeed responsible to it but not the way she thinks. Not directly. And soon, she found that out when she received a message along with a clipped newspaper article of the accident. It says, You're Welcome.

Two more deaths happened after that, along with notes that were creepier than the first. But it's clear now that Sawyer is getting framed up for all the crimes because all the clues were pointing in her direction. Everything here is at stake now. She have to find out who the killer is before her family became the next target.

This gave me goosebumps and that eery feeling of being watched. And maybe I'm weird because I extremely enjoyed every heartstopping, tension-filled moments of it. I'm commending Hannah Jayne for creating such a thrilling read. The mystery was so well hidden that I'm having doubts with my judgment on who the killer is. The characters were well-developed, realistic and believable. And the ending will gave you a heart attack. Seriously, this book should be turned into a movie because it was so freakin' adrenaline-pumping, batshit scary, mystery thriller. It's the kind of story that is just perfect in the big screen. 

Overall, this is one heck of a read and I will definitely recommend this to all the psycho-thriller, murder mystery and suspense lovers out there.
