This is Our Story
by Ashley Elston
A good friend of mine loaned me this book through the Kindle lending program, and I am so glad she suggested it. This book was so good!
The story centers around the death of a popular senior from an elite boarding school in a small Louisiana town. The four main suspects: his best friends, the River Point Boys.
If that doesn’t intrigue you, the story is told through dual perspective…you get one of the River Point Boys, which you assume plays a bigger part in the killing than he lets on, and Kate, daughter of the secretary of the ADA who has the case. Almost like good and bad, dark and light, the opposing forces fighting with all their might…set aside teenage angst and hello mystery!
If you can’t tell, I loved this book! I needed a change from the cheesy romance, and this was the perfect book for that. I enjoyed the mystery, the suspense, the guessing game. I forget how much I love mysteries until I read a really good one. This was a really good one.
What stood out most for me was the author’s ability to hold the killer until the last few chapters. I had it narrowed down to two of the boys, but I really struggled deciding which one it would be. Even after the discovery, I still can’t see where she would have given away the answer. That to me is an awesome mystery.
Plus, I must add that Law & Order (any of them, but especially SVU) is one of my all time favorite series. I love a good crime drama and getting that extra touch was great for me.
If mysteries are your thing, I recommend this one!
