Book Review of "Bachelor Girls Guide to Murder" by Racheal McMillian

I received this book free of charge from the Publisher for my honest review. The words and thoughts about this book are my own. I live when reading a book that I can get lost in the story that I can imagine being there. Well Rachel McMillian's debut book does just this. There are three protagonists: Merinda, Jem and Ray DeLuca. Each character has chapters written from their point of view. However, the book is more focused on Jem and Ray. The book was an bsolute page turner. I did find the novel interesting. Believe it or not, I actually liked the romance in this novel. The lovebirds took some time to get to know each other, and their first kiss wasn’t magical, like in most books, it was quite awkward and funny – at least for the readers. I liked Jem. She is a mix of traditional and modern women. On one hand, she wants a husband and a family, but she also wants to be a detective. The brains before this operation is Merinda, but I think Jem likes to be a detective as well. I don’t know what to say about Merinda. She’s not a the best friend out there. She is not good at consoling her best friend when she’s hurt -be it physically, or emotionally-, and she appears to be quite self-centered. Or maybe I am judging her too harshly. Let put it this way: Merinda is a good and interesting fictional character, but I wouldn’t be her friend in real life. I would’ve like to know more about Jem and Merinda – their backgrounds. I did get some bits of info, but not enough. Same with Ray and Jasper. Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. I give this novel a rating of 4/5.
