Seventeen-year-old Kim gets more than she bargained for when she is set up for murder. Perfect for fans of One of Us is Lying, E. Lockhart, and Gillian Flynn.

17-year-old Kim never expected to plot a murder. But that was before her boyfriend dumped her for another girl. Now, Kim’s stuck on a class trip to London with him and his new soulmate and she can’t help wishing he was a little bit dead, even if she’d never really do that.

But when Kim meets Nicki, a stranger on the plane who’s more than willing to listen to Kim’s woes, things start to look up. Nicki’s got a great sense of humor, and when she jokes about swapping murders, Kim plays along—that is, until Kim’s ex-boyfriend mysteriously dies.

Blackmailed by Nicki to fulfill her end of the deal, Kim will have to commit a murder or take the fall for one.


Crowning Moments

  • Compelling Writing
    • I’ve heard some pretty interesting things of Cook’s books from the past, but sadly I have never read one yet. But the one good thing I keep here is how compelling her writing is. No joke, the rumors are true. I was gripped from beginning to the end!!
  • Twisty Plot
    • Honestly the title says it all. Two girls make a “pact” to kill for the other. It was all supposed to be a joke, but out protagonist, Kim, will soon find out that Nicki is coming to collect her part of the deal. Who comes up with these things? Very creative!!
  • The Ending
    • No spoilers, obviously, but I think you will be satisfied with the ending. I have went into thrillers with full force in the past just to be let down by a crap ending. But You Owe Me a Murder gets my stamp of approval for a fully satisfying ending. Maybe you’ll see it coming, maybe you won’t. Read it to find out!!
