Girl in the Picture
The Girl in the Picture.
After high school heartthrob Chace Porter is found dead in the woods near the school, the police are in search of the girl whose picture with Chace is the only clue found amongst his personal belongings. A girl who no one knew was even close to Chace–and whose dormmate, Lana Rivera, was Chace's girlfriend.
Nicole is that girl and now she's the primary suspect in his murder.
But what really happened that night? Were Nicole and Chace dating behind Lana’s back; were he and Lana over? Could either of them have killed him?
Told in alternating points of view, that of our suspect, Nicole Morgan, and her former best friend and roommate, Lana Rivera, readers will piece together the story of a starcrossed love, a fractured friendship–and what really happened the night Chace was killed.
From Alexandra Monir, author of the popular time-travel novel Timeless, comes a gripping mystery and a poignant romance in one thrilling read.
It was pretty okay overall. The plot was a little cliche but it delivered well. Although it took me around half of the book to fully appreciate the story and the characters, it didn't stop me from reading.
I also liked the shifting of POVs. It added depth to the story. The contradicting polarity of the personalities of Nicole and Lana was definitely interesting.
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE:
Well, like I said, it took half of the book before things pick up really good. It started a bit slow and it was just too hard for me to relate to the characters.
The romance was a little off as well. It's one of the central points in the story, and it's a love-triangle, which I tend to avoid.
I also didn't like the ending that much.
While I had issues with the book, I found the mystery aspect of the book addictive. Must be why I didn't stop reading the book. I'd still recommend it to mystery/thriller lovers!
