Deadly Cool

Deadly Cool - Gemma Halliday I really enjoyed reading this, was laughing out loud in the middle of the night.I love Gemma Halliday, I have read her High Heel Mysteries and they had the same mix of humor, action, romance and mystery. Even though this book takes place in a high school with it's typical cliques and stereotypical mean girl and jocks, Halliday is able to write them in such a way that you can connect with each character and not find them annoyingly stereotypical. They all manage to be their own person. The romance was pretty spot on and you can see how the MC Hartley grows throughout the book because of her boyfriend problems and learns to value herself, an important lesson to all of us.The mystery wasn't that mysterious, I had it figured out pretty early on and they were kind of slow at making the connections but it was still a very enjoyable read!
