Summary

Lights. Camera. Lies.

18-year-old Bel has lived her whole life in the shadow of her mom’s mysterious disappearance. Sixteen years ago, Rachel Price vanished and young Bel was the only witness, but she has no memory of it. Rachel is gone, long presumed dead, and Bel wishes everyone would just move on.

But the case is dragged up from the past when the Price family agree to a true crime documentary. Bel can’t wait for filming to end, for life to go back to normal. And then the impossible happens. Rachel Price reappears, and life will never be normal again.

Rachel has an unbelievable story about what happened to her. Unbelievable, because Bel isn’t sure it’s real. If Rachel is lying, then where has she been all this time? And – could she be dangerous? With the cameras still rolling, Bel must uncover the truth about her mother, and find out why Rachel Price really came back from the dead . . .

My review

I absolutely loved A Good Girls Guide To Murder, but I had a little bit of trouble reading Five Survive, so this book could have gone either way. I did like this book a lot more, but her first series is still my first love, so it is going to be hard to top that. This book takes you through a cold case and the twists and turns at the end were some I did definately not expect! They were soooo good! The book was fast paced, gave me what I expected from Holly and was overall an amazing story! In the beginning I did not bond with Bel like I bonded with Pip, but along the way I’ve started to like her and understand her. I did like the banter a lot between Bel and Ash. It was all vibes and no romance, but that is okay since the plot was so good and the twists unexpected.
